'William & Kate's 'Middleton' to watch royal wedding with beer
Camilla Luddington plans to knock back a beer as she watches her soon-to-be royal counterpart marry Prince William on April 29.
Luddington, a 26-year-old British actress who moved to the United States after high school, plays Kate Middleton in the Lifetime movie "William & Kate," ," which is set to air on Monday, April 18 at 9 p.m. ET.
Nico Evers-Swindell, who is from New Zealand, plays Prince William in the film, which tells of the pair's romance at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland and was filmed after they announced in November 2010 that they were engaged.
"I'll be at home with my family [in the UK], probably not being very glamorous and drinking a beer and watching it from home," Luddington told OnTheRedCarpet.com host Rachel Smith via satellite.
"I would just wish them all the best of luck and just say that I was rooting for them, especially after doing the film, and I hope they have a fabulous honeymoon and they get to relax after all this circus," she added.
Before filming "William & Kate," Luddinton has small parts on shows such as "Days of Our Lives" and "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation." Evers-Swindell has had minor roles in shows such as "NCIS: Los Angeles," "Guilding Light" and "Law & Order."
"Family's been incredibly supportive. Friends have been incredibly supportive," he said, regarding his role as Prince William, later joking: "If I get called 'Prince' again I might just lose it."
