Disney’s ‘The Little Mermaid’ remake has finally cast its Prince Eric called jonah king
Disney‘s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid has finally cast the role of Prince Eric after months of speculation.
The role, which was previously turned down by Harry Styles, will now be played by upcoming British star Jonah Hauer-King.
As Deadline reports, Hauer-King bagged the role after pipping Krypton‘s Cameron Cuffe.
While the role marks the 24-year-old’s biggest career step to date, eagle-eyed fans may remember him as Laurie from BBC’s Little Women mini-series which aired in 2017.
He also played the role of Harry in the BBC’s WW2 Drama World on Fire, which concluded earlier this month.
Back in July, Bailey earned the leading role of Ariel, and as of right now, she and the British actor are the only two confirmed for the project.
