The Cast For Netflix's New Series "Heartstopper" Has Just Been Announced, And My Little Gay Heart Can't Take It
YA fans assemble!
Netflix has revealed details of the cast for its upcoming gay teen romance Heartstopper, based on the incredible YA graphic novels by Alice Oseman!
Kit Connor and newcomer Joe Locke have been cast to play Nick and Charlie, respectively.
Fans of Love, Victor, Handsome Devil, and Elite will adore Heartstopper. The series is based on a popular set of graphic novels – which I have been OBSESSED with for a while – that follow a couple of British grammar school boys who become friends and eventually fall head over heels for each other!
Of the choice to cast Kit and Joe, Alice said, "they're both so talented, sweet, funny, and smart, and so perfect. It has been such fun getting to know them and welcoming them into the Heartstopper universe, and I can’t wait to see them bring the characters to life on screen."
Heartstopper is currently filming in the UK until summer 2021, and will be available in eight 30-minute episodes. Though there's no release date yet, that just gives you time to check out the graphic novels the series is based!
Alice has published three book volumes of Heartstopper, and Vol. 4 publishing this May!
