The Crown is looking for a ginger-headed man to play Prince Harry for next season

Netflix is on the hunt for a young man with red-hair to step into the role of the world's most well known ginger.

And no, we don’t mean Ronald Weasley.

The streaming service has made a last-minute casting call for a Prince Harry lookalike for the next season of The Crown.

Agents for the hit series, which follows the British Royal Family throughout the decades, need to find someone who bares a resemblance to play the Duke of Sussex.

So, gingers, form an orderly queue.

The advert reads: "Robert Sterne, Casting Director of the Netflix series The Crown, is searching for an exceptional young actor to play Prince Harry in the next series."

"It is a significant role in this award-winning drama and we are looking for a strong physical resemblance... Shooting will commence November 2022 in the UK,” it says, according to the Evening Standard.

Better yet, Prince Harry hopefuls don't even need any TV experience.

"No previous professional acting experience is required," the advert reads, as per the Daily Mail.

"We are very experienced in providing a great deal of support for the young actors and their families through what they find is a uniquely rewarding creating process."

Casting agents are looking for an actor between the ages of 16-20.

Harry hopefuls are advised to email a short video of themselves talking about something they love as part of the process. 

Season five of the hit series will air on Netflix in November and will look at the Royal Family throughout the '90s, with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix's Imelda Staunton stepping into the shoes of the Queen.

The season will cover Prince Charles' and Princess Diana's relationship, the collapse of Prince Andrew's marriage to Sarah Ferguson, the fire at Windsor Castle and, of course, the big one: Princess Diana's death.

Creator and executive producer Peter Morgan said the show will continue until season six.

It will also be able to show young Prince Harry and William dealing with their mother's death.
