Prince Harry wants this actor to portray him in Netflix drama series 'The Crown’
The Duke of Sussex said that the show was “loosely based on the truth”, but was not the whole truth.
Prince Harry made an appearance on the Late Late Show With James Corden on Thursday, embarking on an open-top tour bus ride around the town and discussed the Netflix drama series ‘The Crown’.
The Duke of Sussex said that the show was “loosely based on the truth”, but was not the whole truth. “It’s fictional, but it’s loosely based on the truth. Of course, it’s not strictly accurate. It gives you a rough idea about what that lifestyle is, the pressures of putting duty and service above family and everything else, what can come from that.’’ he said.
He further highlighted that treatment of his family members as “news” is what he has an issue about.
"I am way more comfortable with The Crown than I am seeing the stories written about my family, my wife, or myself. That is obviously fiction, take it how you will, but this is being reported on as fact because you are supposedly news. I have a real issue with that.” he added.
When asked about who he would like to portray him on the series, Harry named the “Homeland” actor Damian Lewis.
Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle has moved to California last year after foregoing their royal duties.
The Duke of Sussex is slated to appear in an interview by Oprah Winfrey on March 7.
