Another funny 'Royals' parody is reaching the computer screens this week, only this time, there's a little something for the young actors and actresses of the world. 'Typecast' is possibly the only 'Royals' parody you'll ever need.

It's a hilarious and spot-on song parody about stereotyped women trying to make it in Hollywood. This pertains to Asian women and women of color and Tess Paras wrote the parody and stars in the video, stating that she wrote the sketch based on her own experiences auditioning.

She experienced the mispronunciation of her last name, 'Paras,' which is a Filipino last name with Spanish roots, causing micro-aggressive looks and confused reactions from her audition instructors. Her co-stars also have experienced minor occurrences of aggression and typecasting as well.
