What can you tell me about Dan Amboyer, who played Prince William in William & Catherine: A Royal Romance?
—Shelby Dobrovsky, San Diego, Calif.

Amboyer, 27, the youngest son of a prison warden and a schoolteacher, is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University. His TV appearances prior to being cast as Prince William in the Hallmark Channel movie include Body of Proof, Law & Order and All My Children.

Amboyer lives in New York City, but the avid hiker frequently heads out of town to a more natural setting, such as Yosemite National Park.

While Amboyer did not have to learn to play polo for the role, he says he was happy the TV movie filmed after the actual wedding "so I had an opportunity to really learn a bit about him before taking it on. I'm from Detroit, so not exactly Buckingham Palace."
