Get ready for your new guilty pleasure. ‘The Royals’ follows the chaos of a powerful family, also known as the King and Queen and their badly behaved offspring. Click to WATCH the first trailer…we promise, it’s juicy.
All hail the queen, Elizabeth Hurley. In E!’s first-ever scripted show, The Royals, the British bombshell, 49, plays the head of the palace, which will only be taken down by her children — namely the out-of-control Princess Eleanor, played by the delightfully bad-to-the-bone Alexandra Park. Keep reading for our interview with the stunning, young actress and her hot bodyguard, plus check out your first look!
‘The Royals’: Hookups, Partying & The Royal Family
“Nothing is off limits,” The Royals star Alexandra Park tells HollywoodLife.com about the world that party girl Princess Eleanor lives in on the upcoming drama. “No limits financially. The whole world that we all live in or operate in is completely over the top. Nothing is beyond the means.”
If the first trailer is any indication, “over the top” is just the beginning.
Elizabeth Hurley who plays Queen Helena kicks off the first glimpse of the sexy drama with the royal truth: “My daughter’s vagina was on the cover of four tabloids.”
Alexandra plays her daughter and tells HollywoodLife.com, “There’s not one quite like her.”
“I’m just a bitch with money and power,” Eleanor says. “But I do make it look good.”
She certainly does — and her costars aren’t too shabby either.
Princess Eleanor Hooking Up With Her Bodyguard?
So how do you hook up when you have guards watching your every move?
We spoke to Alexandra and Tom Austen who plays the princess’s new bodyguard, and from the looks of it, he definitely does a good job of protecting her — perhaps in bed. (Just watch the trailer to see him leaving her quarters, in the midst of her makeup-dripping hangover!)
Tom tells HollywoodLife.com he spends a lot of time in Eleanor’s room, coyly. Of course, he is her bodyguard so it is his job to stay around her at all times. Right?! As the season goes on, more and more will unfold about Jasper.
The smoldering actor also lets us know that Gossip Girl has nothing on The Royals, which is shooting in London — the parties, extreme wealth and extremely good looking cast strike similarities, but the level of insanity isn’t even comparable.
The other man in Eleanor’s life is her brother, Prince Liam, played by hottie William Moseley. “There is a mystery about both of these characters, Alexandra says, adding that she was born to play this role. “Having everything handed to you on a plate is never what anybody wants.”
Another thing no one wants (at least the royal family)? Shacking up with employees. And that’s exactly what the prince does, as seen in the trailer with his gorgeous girl, played by Merritt Patterson (Ravenswood).
The Royals premieres in early 2015.
