Have you ever looked at a person and said, “they look very familiar,” and later realize that they indeed look exactly like someone you know? That’s what happened to me when I first saw Mon-El in Season 2 of Supergirl.
I didn’t instantaneously make the connection, but episode after episode it became clear, Chris Wood looks exactly like Bachata singer, Prince Royce!
If you don't believe me stick around, a few pictures and some fun facts will convince you otherwise!
Who Is Prince Royce?
If you don’t listen to Bachata #music then you probably have no idea who Prince Royce is. Don’t worry though, I got you covered.
What is Bachata?
It's a Latin genre of music that mainly incorporates the acoustic guitar, bass guitar, and percussion instruments like the bongos and the guira.
Originating from the Dominican Republic, the genre has birthed many of today’s greatest Latin superstars like Romeo Santos and Prince Royce himself.
Think of Royce the same way you'd think of Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony; he is right up there with those superstars!
His music has even reached an international following and recently he's collaborated with industry giants like Snoop Dogg, the aforementioned Lopez and Pitbull, as well as Tyga and Selena Gomez.
In addition to collaborating with some of the music industry’s top names, Royce has also won many awards. As of this writing, he has won 19 Billboard Latin Music Awards, 18 Premios Juventud and 17 Premios Lo Nuestros -- three of Latin America’s most recognized award ceremonies.
And, as if there wasn't more to the talented Royce, he recently appeared in #Hulu’s East Los High as Vincent, a series about Latino high school kids in East Los Angeles.
Now, what are you waiting for, go listen -- or watch -- some Prince Royce!
Prince Mon-El Royce: It's All In The Face, And The Voice
Chris Wood is doing an outstanding job as Mon-El in this season of Supergirl, but one thing we haven’t seen him do, or rather, heard him do yet, is sing.
However, have no fear. Wood is indeed an amazing singer as well (check out the video below).
So the million dollar question now is are we going to see him alongside Melissa Benoist and Grant Gustin in #TheFlash and Supergirl’s musical crossover?

Furthermore, since Wood has an incredibly close physical resemblance to Prince Royce, could we see the two stars appear together on screen?
That would be utterly fantastic, but can Chris Wood sing in Spanish? And is it too much to ask for Royce like to guest star in a future episode of Supergirl as Mon-El’s evil brother?
(Just picture the potential drama with both of them in a nice family scene like the one below.)
Oh yes! I say the necessary parties should meet and figure all that out!
What do you think? Can you see the resemblance between these two stars? Let me know in the comments!
