Genevieve Gaunt, who recurred on Season 2 of E!’s The Royals as Wilhelmina, a love interest for William Mosely’s Prince Liam, has been promoted to series regular for the third go-round. Co-produced by Lionsgate and Universal Cable Prods and written, directed and executive produced by Mark Schwahn, the series stars Elizabeth Hurley as calculating Queen Helena. United Agents-repped Gaunt also appeared on BBC One series Father Brown and Land Girls.

Chris Conrad (Young Hercules) has been upped to a series regular on Amazon drama series The Patriot. Conrad will continue in the role of Dennis McClaren, an average-seeming employee at McMillan Industrial Piping who is overeager to be John’s (Michael Dorman) sidekick when he learns about John’s cover as a U.S. intelligence officer. He sees his involvement with John as the escape he yearns for from his average life. Conrad is repped by LINK and Myman Greenspan.
