Queer Eye’s Antoni Porowski is teaming up with Netflix for a new role — a scripted one.

The food and wine expert is taking on a small role in a Polish limited series for the streaming giant called Królowa, or Queen.

According to Queerty, the four-part series stars Andrzej Seweryn as a tailor and drag queen leading a successful life in Paris until he receives a letter from a granddaughter he didn’t know he had, drawing him back to Poland and his old life to reconcile with his estranged family.

Porowski only plays a small part in one episode, where he will be seen as one of Seweryn’s tailoring assistants.

“New role? Challenge accepted!” he wrote on Instagram, sharing a short clip of him working a sewing machine in character.

Notably, as the series is Polish, the language spoken throughout will also be Polish — something that isn’t deterring Queer Eye fans from gearing up to support their fave.

“Is there anything hotter than Antoni Porowski?” one fan wrote on Instagram. “Antoni Porowski speaking Polish.”

“I don’t know what’s happening here but I will be watching,” another added.

This isn’t Porowski’s first foray into acting. His IMDb page boasts a handful of short films, bit parts in TV shows, and appearances in small indie movies prior to Queer Eye. More recently, he was credited in 2020’s Sleepaway Slasher, which is described in one review from Jim Morazzini as “a strange fusion of anthology and feature film with nine directors and eleven writers relating events surrounding a deadly film content.”

Królowa will be available to stream on Netflix (yes, even outside of Poland) on June 23.
