It’s a Royal time for Taylor Zakhar Perez.
Prime Video has released a series of photos of the streamer’s film adaptation of the best-selling book Red, White & Royal Blue starring the 31-year-old part-Mexican American actor.
Based on the book penned by author Casey McQuiston, Red, White & Royal Blue centers around Alex and Prince Henry who have a lot in common: Stunning good looks, undeniable charisma, international popularity … and a total disdain for each other. Separated by an ocean, their long-running feud hasn’t really been an issue, until a disastrous—and very public—altercation at a royal event becomes tabloid fodder, driving a potential wedge in U.S./British relations at the worst possible time.
Going into damage-control mode, their families and handlers force the two rivals into a staged “truce.” But as Alex and Henry’s icy relationship unexpectedly begins to thaw into a tentative friendship, the friction that existed between them sparks something deeper than they ever expected.
The film adaptation is directed by Matthew López, who also co-wrote the screenplay alongside Ted Malawer. Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter produce with Casey McQuiston, Michael Riley McGrath, Matthew López and Michael S. Constable serving as executive producers.
Red, White & Royal Blue also stars Clifton Collins Jr., Sarah Shahi, Rachel Hilson, Stephen Fry, Ellie Bamber, Thomas Flynn, Malcolm Atobrah, Akshay Khanna, Sharon D Clarke, Aneesh Sheth and Juan Castano.
Red, White & Royal Blue premieres on August 11 on Prime Video.
