The Crown is on the hunt for an actor to play one of the most famous ginger men in the world, Prince Harry.

Netflix is looking for an actor aged between 16 to 20 to portray The Duke of Sussex in the upcoming season, which begins shooting this November in the UK.

If this sounds like you or someone you know, you're in luck too, as no previous acting experience is required.

As reported by the Evening Standard, the open casting call reads: "Robert Sterne, Casting Director of the Netflix series The Crown, is searching for an exceptional young actor to play Prince Harry in the next series.

"It is a significant role in this award-winning drama and we are looking for a strong physical resemblance... Shooting will commence November 2022 in the UK.

"No previous professional acting experience is required.

"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 creating process."

This will undoubtedly be an exciting opportunity for the chosen actor, as all eyes are on the royal family in the wake of Queen Elizabeth's death on 8 September.

For the first time in over seven decades, the UK has a new monarch, and this has a lot of people reflecting on the Queen's life through the Netflix show.

In fact, after her death, the show shot up the streaming service's chart, reaching the number three spot in the UK, as reported by Metro.

As a mark of respect, the show, which is loosely based on real events from the royal family's lives, temporarily stopped filming.

A representative for Netflix told Tyla at the time: "As a mark of respect, filming on The Crown was suspended today (9 September). Filming will also be suspended on the day of Her Majesty The Queen's funeral."

Claire Foy, who played the young Queen Elizabeth, also paid tribute to the late monarch.

The actress, now 38, told the BBC: "I think that she was an incredible monarch.

"She united people and she was a massive symbol of continuity and dignity and grace."

Foy said that she was 'honoured' to have played the Queen.

"My main feeling is just thinking about her as a mother and a grandmother and a great-grandmother, really, and I'm very honoured to have been a teeny tiny, small part of her story," she added.
