“Royalteen” is directed by Per-Olav Sørensen (Quicksand, Home for Christmas, Nobel) and Emilie Beck (When you left, Do you want me back?). The film is based on Heir, the first book in the acclaimed young adult novel series Royalteen by Randi Fuglehaug and Anne Gunn Halvorsen.
The cast includes Ines Høysæter Asserson (Lena), Mathias Storhøi (Prince Kalle), Elli Müller Osborne (Margrethe), Filip Bargee Ramberg (Arnie), Amalie Sporsheim (Ingrid), Ina Dajanna Ervik (Tess), Hannah Larsen Walberg (Fanny), Vår Sørensen Grønlie (Astrid), Niels Skåber (Gunnar) and Carmen Andrea Høilund (Guro).
Netflix’s Royalteen is a love story about living with your mistakes, conquering your fears, and breaking the internet. When newcomer Lena (Ines Høysæter Asserson) and the Norwegian prince Karl Johan (Mathias Storhøi), Kalle amongst friends, start to develop warm feelings for each other, Lena is charmed but also skeptical, for many reasons. Party prince Kalle is a regular figure in the tabloids and the gossip blogs – one of them was run anonymously by Lena herself until she was exposed. Lena is painfully aware that dating the future king might put them both in an impossible situation and she has not told Kalle or anyone else about her even bigger secret, which is also the reason why she moved from her hometown.
