For its last season, the series “The Crown” seeks to cast a young actress to play Kate Middleton. Netflix had launched a similar call to find actors who will play Prince William and Prince Harry in their late teens.
The Crown, Netflix’s hit series, is looking for an actress to play Kate Middleton, People magazine reported on April 8. In this season 6, the series must sweep the royal life of England from the late 1990s to the early 2000s. It seems that the presence of Kate Middleton is not expected to be very important. Indeed, the series is only expected to cover the very beginning of her romance with Prince William, when they met at St. Andrews University in Scotland. Streaming platform Netflix said last month that they were looking for young actors to play Prince William, 16 to 21, and Prince Harry, 16 to 20. The casting sheet stated that filming would begin this August.
A crucial meeting at the university
“Whenever Kate was in the room, Will was obviously paying attention to her,” Laura Warshauer, who shared a dorm room with them in college, had told People. “When we were having lunch in the dining room and they were both talking, it was amazing how natural it was, how they had so much to talk about,” she said. Kate, 40, and Prince William, 39, were married in 2011 and have three children: Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3.
A season 6 that was not to see the day
While season 5 was originally intended to be the last of the series, the creators changed their minds and promised a final one to fans. While the series will not cover the British royal family over the last few years, Variety reports that the creators are reportedly in discussions to film a prequel to The Crown, namely a series that would begin at the time of Queen Victoria’s death in 1901 to the beginning of Queen Elizabeth’s reign where the original series began, covering the reigns of King Edward VII, King George V, King Edward VIII and King George VI.
