Meet the On-Screen Prince William
So who is the chap playing her prince?
The on-screen Prince William is Nico Evers-Swindell, a newcomer to the scene who hails from New Zealand. His credits to date feature bit parts on NCIS: Los Angeles (he was Blond Russian #1), Guiding Light and Law & Order.
The 30-something actor is also a New York transplant, who studied with The Upright Citizens Brigade, according to Famecrawler. He’s also reportedly got a law degree and an actress fiancée.
And, of course – hello – he’s certainly easy on the eyes.
What’s more, Reid has got actual royal connections. The actor, 26, is the son of the Queen’s treasurer, and it was those family ties that kept him from the role of William.
“It probably wasn’t a role I’d be able to do at the end of the day,” Reid told E! online of playing Prince William. “I think my dad would have stepped in and put the brakes on it I think my dad is happy and a lot more comfortable than he would have been if I had been playing William.”
