Queer Eye’s Antoni Returns to Acting in New Netflix Series Queen
The ultimate Queer Eye heartthrob is ready to serve us some acting.
Antoni Porowski has become a mainstream TV personality since appearing as the food and wine expert on Netflix’s Queer Eye reboot. Now, he’s setting his sights on something he started doing early on in his career – being an actor.
Porowski, who has had various smaller parts in a bunch of different projects like Blue Mountain State and The Blacklist over the years, landed a role in the Polish limited series Queen, which is scheduled to premiere on Netflix on June 23. In the show, Porowski will play a tailor assistant seemingly named Anto’s. (Interestingly enough, Anto’s is a Polish nickname for someone named Antoni!)
In the teaser below, one can see Porowski’s character trying to sew a garment and getting asked if he has practiced enough times at home.
“A little bit,” he replies.
The tagline for Queen reads, “After a decades-long absence, a renowned Parisian tailor and drag queen returns to his hometown in Poland to make amends with his daughter.” Directed by Lukasz Ko’smick and written by Arnie Asgeirsson, this limited series will have four episodes. As an original Polish production for Netflix, the show will feature characters speaking both Polish and French. Porowski was born in Montreal, Canada and speaks French fluently.
Besides this limited series, Porowski has also already been cast as an actor in the upcoming film Spoiler Alert starring Jim Parsons. That movie is also scheduled to be released in 2022, so this is slowly shaping up to be a landmark year for Porowski’s acting career.
Queen premieres June 23 on <a href="https:// netflix.com/title/81314938″ target=”_blank”>Netflix.
