    Taylor Zakhar Perez & Nicholas Galitzine: Worth the 5-Month Wait!

    The film adaptation of Red, White & Royal Blue is finally streaming, but the journey from pages to Prime Video wasn’t a swift one.
    During a recent interview with the Wrap, director Matthew Lopez revealed it took months to find the actors best suited to play the leading roles of Prince Henry and Alex Claremont-Diaz, which ultimately went to actors Nicholas Galitzine and Taylor Zakhar Perez.

    But once Taylor and Nicholas performed a chemistry read, they immediately captured Matthew’s attention and left a lasting impression on him.
    Believe it or not, Nicholas and Taylor’s first meeting was actually on Zoom because they were in different cities at the time. But that didn’t stop their undeniable chemistry from being felt onscreen.
    They both had a deep understanding of these characters, making them perfect for the roles. The most important aspect for me was their portrayal of these two characters, which is why I was inspired to make this film.
    Matthew knew he had to be patient when casting, because he really wanted to get it right. He was willing to wait until something “popped,” and that’s just what happened with Taylor and Nicholas.
    There was something really beautiful about the way these two very different types of actors came together to create this partnership. There was a real sense of trust and respect for one another.
