In 2010 Noah Lomax came into our hearts during season one of AMC’s The Walking Dead portraying Louis Morales, a survivor of the outbreak. It was one of his biggest roles, showcasing the devastation of an apocalypse and a family ripped apart. It was during this show audiences saw the incredible talent Lomax possessed at such an young age.
From there he would continue to tackle harder-edged, more serious roles, such as Conner Nash in 99 Homes about economic inequality and home evictions.
Now Lomax is changing things up by showing even more of his acting versatility and musicality with a much lighter performance in the new Disney+ original movie Secret Society of Second-Born Royals about a rebellious princess is stunned to learn that she has superpowers and belongs to a secret society with a longstanding tradition of covertly keeping the peace throughout the kingdom.
Lomax plays Mike, the best friend of Princess Sam of Illyria (Peyton Elizabeth Lee) who discovers she possesses powers that make her better suited to the battlefield than the royal court. While, a teenager who hated life in the palace would be excited by this, Sam would rather hang out with her best friend Mike and play political anthems in their makeshift band. As Sam moves into her new responsibilities, Mike keeps her connected to the outside world through their rock band.
Like a true friend, one could say because Mike is a non-royal, he’s a healthy distraction for Sam. Keeping her away from all the stresses royal life may bring.
The Koalition spoke to Lomax about his role as Mike, his acting career, playing the drums.
Disney+’s Secret Society of Second-Born Royals releases on September 25th.
