Emerging actress Camilla Luddington has been cast as the future royal in a TV film, with a New Zealand-born actor playing Prince William
She’s only had bit parts in a handful of dramas, but the previously unknown actress is about to become a household name…
The 26-year-old has beaten off competition from thousands to play the future royal in a television mini-movie, being made by US TV network Lifetime.
She has previously had small roles in hit US shows Days of Our Lives and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, as well as a starring role in short film Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls.
The programme, to be titled simply William and Kate, will also star New Zealand-born actor Nico Evers-Swindell as Prince William.
‘The film chronicles the history of William and Kate – from the moment the two students met at Scotland’s prestigious University of St Andrews, through the ups and downs of their nine-year courtship complicated by social and Royal Family pressures, and intense global media attention surrounding their storybook nuptials,’ reads a synopsis.
