Get To Know 'SSSBR' Star Faly Rakotohavana With 10 Fun Facts!

Faly Rakotohavana will soon be starring in the new Disney+ movie Secret Society of Second-Born Royals!

The 17-year-old actor plays Matteo in the upcoming movie, which premieres THIS Friday (September 25).

“My character, Matteo, is a super shy character. He’s very meek, as you saw,” he told ScreenRant about his character. “And towards the beginning of the film, he is quite unseen by the rest of the group – especially in that first classroom scene. He’s doing his best to fit in, but it’s hard for him because he is very insecure. He has a lot on his mind, and he’s nervous about social settings.”

“I feel throughout the movie, he gains a sense of confidence to learn to trust in the people around him; in the rest of the society. He learns to trust his friends, and by the end of the film, you’ve got this beautifully developed kid that’s ready to start a new chapter,” Faly added.

You may also recognize Faly from his recurring role of Miles on Disney Channel’s Raven’s Home.
