Brooklynn Prince the young actress who amazed everyone with her award-winning performance in The Florida Project is set to headline a new Apple series. Brooklynn Prince is a talented actress who has such a strong faith and can be an example for the rest of us. She never forgets to count her blessings as you can see below from her viral acceptance speech earlier this year at the 2018 Critic’s Choice Awards.
The Florida Project standout, 8-year-old Brooklynn Prince, has been cast as the lead in Apple’s upcoming untitled Hilde Lysiak series.
The 10-episode mystery drama, which has a straight-to-series order, was inspired by the real-life story of 11-year-old Hilde Lysiak. Also described as a family drama, it follows a young girl (Prince) who moves from Brooklyn to the small lakeside town her father left behind. While there, her dogged pursuit of the truth leads her to unearth a cold case that everyone in town, including her own father, tried hard to bury.
The story is inspired by Lysiak, an investigative reporter who, at age 9, was the first to expose a murder in her hometown of Selinsgrove, PA, breaking the news in her self-started newspaper, Orange Street News.
This marks the first TV role for Prince, who burst onto the scene with her breakout performance in the Oscar- and Golden Globe-nominated The Florida Project, for which she received a slew of accolades, including a Critics’ Choice Award for Best Young Actress.
