EW is reporting that Lifetime has cast Murray Fraser (The Loch) and Parisa Fitz-Henley (Luke Cage) as Prince Harry and Suits star Meghan Markle in Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance.
Harry & Meghan chronicles the courtship and love story between a beloved prince and his new fiancée. The film will examine the history of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from the moment they met after being set up by friends, through their initial courtship when they were able to keep their romance under wraps, and ultimately the intense global media attention surrounding their relationship and Meghan’s life as a divorced American actress.
Menhaj Huda (The Royals) is directing Harry & Meghan from a script by Scarlett Lacey and Terrence Coli. Merideth Finn and Michele Weiss (Flowers In the Attic) executive produce.
Prince Harry and Suits star Markle met in July 2016, embarking on a worldwide romance that spanned Harry’s native country, Great Britain, Canada, where Markle filmed Suits, and Africa.
Production on the movie begins later this week in Vancouver and Los Angeles.
Fitz-Henley was last seen in NBC’s short-lived supernatural thriller “Midnight, Texas.” Fitz-Henley recurred as the mysterious Reva Connors on the Netflix series “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” and reprised that role on the Netflix series “Luke Cage.”
Fraser’s credits include TV miniseries The Loch and Victoria.
