How Lifetime's Prince Harry and Meghan Markle actors landed their roles
Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance star Parisa Fitz-Henley hadn't been paying attention to her real life counterpart until she read about Markle's engagement. “I saw their engagement interview and thought it was so sweet and ended up making a call to my manager saying, ‘If they ever make a movie about this, I'd love to audition." Fitz-Henley prepared for the role by watching episodes of The Crown. She also discovered she identifies with Markle in that she too has been divorced and has experienced issues with race. Meanwhile, Murray Fraser nabbed the role after sending an audition tape with his male friend playing Markle. Fraser has since gotten ribbing from his friends and family, especially after he said they dyed "my hair ginger, which was kind of a shock."
