Nicholas Galitzine (Our bruised hearts): 4 things to know about the actor

By Aubéry Mallet Journalist Series, cinema, TV Aubéry Mallet is a journalist specializing in series. A fan of the small screen, she has seen everything (or almost) from Game of Thrones to Pretty Little Liars, from The Bridgerton Chronicle to Stranger Things via Gossip Girl or Friends. This is our crush of the moment: in Our bruised hearts (Purple Hearts in the original version) on Netflix, Nicholas Galitzine plays Luke opposite Sofia Carson. But who is the actor previously seen in Cinderella on Prime Video? Here are 4 things to know about him.

It will surely be Netflix's summer movie: on July 29, the platform uploaded Our Bruised Hearts, adapted from the novel by Tess Wakefield. This romantic comedy-drama tells the story of Cassie, a singer who has galleys of money, and Luke, a young soldier. Many shed their best tears in front of the film which also found itself at the heart of a controversy. But everyone agrees that Nicholas Galitzine is perfect for the role of Luke. So who is the 27-year-old actor? We tell you more about him!

1. He is the descendant of a noble family

Nicholas Galitzine was born in England but, as his full name suggests, he is actually of Russian descent. Yes, his name is actually Nicholas Dimitri Constantine Galitzine. His father, Geoffrey Galitzine is a descendant of the Galitzine family (also spelled Golitsyn), the second largest princely house in Russia. The actor's ancestors fled to England in the early 20th century following the October Revolution and the Red Terror during the Russian Revolution.

2. He held his first role opposite Luke Perry

Nicholas Galitzine began his acting career in 2014, at the age of 20. For his first film, he was able to count on strong support: that of the late Luke Perry. It was he who gave him the reply in The Beat Beneath My Feet where Nicholas Galitzine played the leading role, that of a young man who discovers that his neighbor is in fact a former rocker who has faked his dead after being pinned for tax evasion.

3. He will soon be in another highly anticipated romantic comedy

After Our bruised hearts, Nicholas Galitzine will be back in a romantic comedy and he is already highly anticipated! This is the adaptation of the novel Red, White & Royal Blue (My dear f***ing prince in French) where he will play opposite Taylor Zakhar Perez alias Marco in The Kissing Booth. Nicholas Galitzine will play Henry Fox-Mountchristen-Windsor, a British prince and heir to the throne who will fall for Alex Claremont-Dia, the son of the President of the United States. Filming is currently underway and the film will be released soon on Prime Video.

4. He is also a singer

If Sofia Carson provides the voice in Our bruised hearts, Nicholas Galitzine is in fact also rather gifted when it comes to music! He notably gave the voice for the soundtrack of the film Cinderella where he gives the reply to Camilla Cabello. He also released the single Comfort in 2022.

Bonus: he is very (very) discreet about his private life

If you are wondering if Nicholas Galitzine is in couple or single… well we too would like to know! The actor is very discreet about his love life and has never revealed if he has someone in his life (or not). To live happily, live hidden!
