Netflix looking for someone to play Prince Harry in The Crown

Know someone who might fit the bill?

Netflix is on the hunt for an actor to play a young Prince Harry in the final season of The Crown.

The streaming giant has issued a casting call for "an exceptional young man" between the ages of 16-20 who has a "strong physical resemblance" to Prince Harry.

According to the casting notice, Harry will play a "significant role" in the series. What's more, those wishing to apply do not necessarily have to have previous acting experience, while Netflix has pledged to support the chosen actor and their family.

The casting call reads: "We are very experienced in providing a great deal of support for the young actors and their families through what they find is a uniquely rewarding creative process."

Those interested should email with their name, age, date of birth, and a current selfie. They also must attach a short video in which they chat about something they love for no more than 30 seconds. The video should be shot in good lighting, and it should capture the actor's head and shoulders. It should begin with them stating their name, age, and height.


Additionally, perspective Prince Harry should inform the casting agents where they are based and where they heard about the casting notice. Those under the age of 18 must get their parent or guardian's approval prior to applying, and their contact details must be included.

If you know someone who could fit the bill, better tell them to get a move on as applications close on Friday 14 October at 6 pm.

Auditions should be sent to

The Crown has already found its Prince William, with Rufus Kampa playing the future king in his teenage years, while Ed McVey will play him as a late teen/young adult.

The much-coveted role of a young Kate Middleton has also been cast, with Meg Bellamy stepping into the Duchess' shoes.
