The Royals is turning into a family affair for its star.
Elizabeth Hurley‘s 14-year-old son, Damian, was cast in the third season of the E! show as Hansel, the spoiled Crown Prince of Liechtenstein. The mother-son duo appeared on Today to talk about the perks — and odd parts — of working together.
Although this was Damian’s first television acting gig, he was no stranger to the set. According to Hurley, her son came every day because they shot during his summer break.
“Everybody loved him, they promised him a part ‘one day,’ and suddenly this day came,” the 51-year-old actress said.
Although Hurley admitted to being nervous about Damian’s abilities, she couldn’t be more proud of his performance.
“He was knock-out when he was shooting,” she said.
Hurley claims that her son didn’t need any help, but she did give him some straightforward tips before the big gig.
Damian says her advice was, “Learn your lines and don’t be annoying.”
Hurley noted that Damian’s education was the priority for the time being, but she’s excited to “hand on the baton” to her child and see what happens with his career.
As for Damian? He’s caught the acting bug.
“I’m obsessed,” he said.
The Royals returns Sunday at 10 p.m. ET on E!
