Actor Niles Fitch, known for playing the teen and young adult version of Randall Pearson in the hit NBC series This Is Us, is making history, as he was just hired to play Disney’s first live-action black prince in the upcoming Disney+ movie Secret Society of Second-Born Royals.
The story will center around Sam, who is a different type of Disney princess. Sam will be portrayed by Peyton Elizabeth Lee (Andi Mack), and her character is described as “a rebellious teen living in the kingdom of Illyria.” The movie will follow “Sam’s adventures at a top-secret training program for a new class of second-born royals tasked with saving the world.”
