Heartstopper: Kit Connor Initially Auditioned For The Role of Charlie, not Nick
Kit Connor, one of the leading cast members in Netflix's Heartstopper, has revealed that he auditioned for the role of Charlie Spring in the LGBTQ+ romance despite not believing he was a suitable match.
Not only do their personalities differ, but so do their physical appearances, with Nick shown as more athletic than Charlie, who prefers to pursue creative and musical interests.
With this in mind, Connor told RadioTimes and other media that he realized he didn't fit the description of Charlie, but couldn't pass up the opportunity to apply for the role because the character's writing was so good. He began by saying:
I originally auditioned in a self-tape for Joe's character, for Charlie, which literally whenever I tell people that they're just like: 'Why? Why would you do that?' It was just a stroke of luck really because I was thinking, especially sending that tape through, the real reason I was doing it is because I knew about the project – I thought it was an amazing project I'd like to be a part of.
The cast of Heartstopper is mostly made up of newbies, with the exception of Rocketman actor Connor and Game of Thrones alum Sebastian Croft.
