William, 24, rounds out the lead three in the CW’s new pilot, which also stars Ethan Peck.
Deadline reports that he’ll star as Aspen Leger, a handsome and brave young man with a regal bearing under his ragged clothes who belongs to the servant class and has to support his entire family.
He is having a secret, illegal relationship with America (Teegarden) since it’s not allowed to date anyone out of one’s caste. Despite his love for her, when he learns she has a shot at bettering her and her family’s lives by competing in The Selection, he takes himself out of the picture by enlisting in the royal army.
Also spotted around set were Chad Rook, Peta Sergeant, Merritt Patterson, and Celia Kate Massingham.
