Jonah Hauer-King has had his big break playing Prince Eric in Disney’s live-action version of ‘The Little Mermaid.’ Thanks to a great chemistry with co-star Halle Bailey, as well as enhanced backstory for his character, the British actor has captivated audiences with a charming performance.
However, Hauer-King is no stranger to period pieces. Before The Little Mermaid, he was most known for the World War II drama “World on Fire,” for the BBC. He will reprise his role as Harry Chase in the second season of the TV drama, which is set to premiere this Summer.
Hauer-King has also several upcoming movies lined up, such as ‘Beautiful Imperfection.’ But, if you want to watch a series with him in another role in which his character is as charming as Prince Eric, you can’t miss this one.
