Meet Cinderella’s Prince Charming in new clip
One new element to Disney’s live-action retelling of the Cinderella story is that Prince Charming (Richard Madden) gets to have a backstory as well. As much as the focus is on Cinderella, including her wonderful night at the ball, we’ve seen in previous trailers and TV spots that we’re going to get more of the Prince’s struggles of being the royal heir to the throne, which includes finding a suitable wife.
In the clip, the Prince, played by Game of Thrones’ Richard Madden, is distracted while fencing after an enchanting encounter with a mystery girl who we know to be Cinderella. “Her spirit! Her goodness!” he exclaims, and seeks advice for what he should do should she show up at the ball.
As you may have noticed, both Richard Madden (he played Robb Stark) and Nonso Anozie (he played Xaro Xhoan Daxos) appeared in HBO’s Game of Thrones. However, they were not in any scenes together, and probably had not seen each other at all during production. So, this might thrill some of you GoT fans to see them interact here.
