Have you watched Netflix’s new series, Prince of Peoria, yet? Well, if you haven’t, get on that because it’s hilarious!

Gavin Lewis is one of the stars of the series and opened up to JJJ about playing Emil, a 13 year-old prince from a wealthy island kingdom, who gets hit with a bit of culture shock when he moves to the U.S. to live incognito as an exchange student.

“As an actor, I love playing Emil,” he told us. “His joy and optimism remind us to look for what’s good and positive in the world and in our relationships with others.”

Gavin adds, “I can’t imagine a better team than the people I worked with on Prince of Peoria. Every day, the cast, crew, creators, writers, designers and producers taught me what being part of a television family truly means.”

  • In between takes on Prince of Peoria, Theo and I use the mini basketball hoop on the back of the bedroom door to shoot hoops.
  • I have type 1 diabetes. I always carry a bag with me so I have my necessary supplies. It’s super practical. All dudes need a man satchel.

  • I like spicy food. It gives your tongue little fire hugs.
  • In an episode of Prince of Peoria, I had to stuff my face with chicken fingers, but they let me use french fries instead because cold chicken fingers make me gag… more than cold french fries.
