Our first look at the upcoming film My Fake Boyfriend featuring Keiynan Lonsdale, Dylan Sprouse and Sarah Hyland has been released.

And it’s on its way soon.

Keiynan Lonsdale in My Fake Boyfriend

My Fake Boyfriend is the latest leading film role for Keiynan Lonsdale since he’s appearance as Bram in Love, Simon.

And he is bringing us a light hearted and hilarious queer rom-com.

Keiynan plays Andrew, a gay man trying to rid himself of his awful ex boyfriend.

However before he has the chance to make his own decision, his best friend Jake (Dylan Sprouse) takes matters into his own hands.

Jake creates a fake boyfriend for Andrew, complete with a very active social media presence.

With the help of friend Kelly, played by Sarah Hyland, Jake’s plan starts to work as the presence of his new fake boyfriend starts to draw the ire of his ex.

But things start to unravel when Andrew meets someone real and discovers that breaking up with his fake boyfriend is a little harder than expected.

“I’m really stoked and amazed and honoured that I get to be in this position”

Last year Keiynan Lonsdale sat down to talk with Qnews about his film and television work.

He discussed his upcoming role in My Fake Boyfriend and also the importance of queer actors taking on queer roles.

“I also think that it’s important that straight actors can play queer as well. But not at the loss of people be truly represented” he said.

“I think it’s about people coming together and I’m really stoked and amazed and honoured that I get to be in this position to tell these stories.”

“To be a part of them. To live the experience of going through these questions and certain suffering.”

“Then learning about it and being part of stories that get to be part of light in that space for others. It’s a real gift, I pinch myself all the time that this is what I get to do.”

My Fake Boyfriend will be available on Amazon Prime Video on June 10th.
