Wellington, Jan 28 (ANI): A little-known New Zealand actor has bagged the lead role in a film about Prince William and Kate Middleton's marriage.
Nico Evers-Swindell, a former Victoria University of Wellington student and the cousin of rowing champs Georgina and Caroline Evers-Swindell, will play the Prince.
American television network Lifetime was in the preparation stages of creating a TV movie about the couple's courtship and romance, according to a foreign news agency.
Lifetime's press release describes the movie as "the story of how the friendship between Prince William, second in line to the throne of the British monarchy, and future princess Kate Middleton, the stunning daughter of upper middle-class commoners, blossomed into a romantic love affair, charming the world with their recent engagement and eagerly awaited Royal Wedding.
"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," Stuff.co.nz quoted it as saying.
It is thought the movie, titled 'William And Kate', will be aired in the US a week before the real wedding on April 29. (ANI)
