The 31-year-old Amboyer is best know
for his starring role as Prince William of Wales in Hallmark
Channel's William & Catherine: A Royal Romance and twins
Thad and Chad on TV Land's Younger.
Amboyer and Berger, 37, together nearly

also on Younger, has inspired me by the way he’s become such
an advocate for sexual fluidity. I think the more open actors can be
the less stigma there will be attached, which will be a positive
thing moving forward.”
