‘Bridgerton’ fans may not have Reg�-Jean Page to drool over, but Netflix is vowing that they’ll be at the edge of their seats in Season 2, this time, by a fling between Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) and Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley), reports Variety.com.
The ‘Sex Education’ celebrity and Bailey assured during a Tudum panel that, despite all of the opinions you’ll see on-screen between the pair, they certainly aren’t lacking in passion.
Just recently, an exclusive first-look of ‘Bridgerton’ Season 2 was published. The Shondaland-produced Regency-era drama is founded on Julia Quinn’s novels.
“He’s met someone who’s really his match,” Nicola Coughlan (Penelope Featherington) identified during a brief panel tour with Ashley, Bailey and Charithra Chandran, who enlists in the crew on Season 2 as Kate’s younger sister, Edwina.
“I couldn’t believe that someone who looked like me could be in those outfits and be in show like that,” Chandran told.
Coughlan remarked that Kim Kardashian is a big fan of ‘Bridgerton’ and has a WhatsApp group committed to watching the show. She dubbed her “Lady Kardashian of Calabasas.” She pointed to the diversity on show in the series as assisting to make the outfit drama feel very popular.
“It’s not your grandmother’s period drama. It’s quietly revolutionary in a lot of things that it does,” Coughlan said. “It doesn’t follow the rulebook at all.”
As a newcomer, Ashley praised the vibe on the set, stressing that the cast and team are “a bunch of genuinely kind and lovely down to earth people.”
The new episodes will inaugurate the fan-favourite role, Kate Sharma. Each publication in the Quinn novels (and subsequently, each season) is committed to each sibling’s love tale, as they steer the marriage scene in search of romance and adventure in nineteenth-century London.
“We pick up with Anthony after we’ve seen what he’s been through with his mistress. He’s thinking, ‘Was that love?’ Some would call it that, others would not. We’re exploring those concepts of duty and honour once again,” Chris Van Dusen told Variety in an earlier interview.
