Season 3 filming of Bridgerton on Netflix has begun in London with the addition of Daniel Francis (Stay Close), Sam Phillips (The Crown), and James Phoon (Wreck) to the cast.
A charismatic presence who brightens up whatever room he visits attracts the attention of certain matriarchs in town — and the ire of others. Francis portrays Marcus Anderson. Playing Lord Debling, Phillips portrays Lord Debling, an amicable gentleman who has a wide range of interests.
Young girls will be drawn to his oddities this season because of his wealth and high title. The phone plays Harry Dankworth, and he more than makes up for his lack of wit and intelligence with undeniable attractive looks.
After witnessing Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) criticize her to his friends last season, Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) ultimately gives up her affection for him in Season 3.
To avoid her mother and sisters, Lady Whistledown is focusing on finding a husband who would respect her independence so she may continue her double life as Lady Whistledown away from them. However, her search is hampered by her lack of self-assurance.
‘Bridgerton’ Season 3 Adds New Cast Members as Production Begins
The third season of the Netflix period drama “Bridgerton” has brought on three new cast members as the shooting begins.
Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) and Colin Bridgerton (Sam Phillips) will be the center of the upcoming season, which will be written by Daniel Francis, Sam Phillips, and James Phoon (Luke Newton).
There are some matriarchs in the tonne that recognize Francis (“Stay Close”) as Marcus Anderson, but there are others who dislike his charming presence.
Actor Phillips (The Crown) takes on the role of Lord Debling in this drama. Despite his oddities, the lord has a fortune and a noble title to support them. This season, he’ll be inundated with young women’s attention.
Harry Dankworth is played by Phoon (“Wreck”). Dankworth makes up for his lack of intelligence and wit with a stunning physique. After hearing Colin’s scathing remarks about her in Season 2, Penelope has finally given up on her long-standing affection for him in Season 3.
It is clear to her now that she needs a spouse, preferably one who will give her the freedom to continue her secret existence as Lady Whistledown, distant from the influence of her mother and sisters. Penelope’s attempts to find a husband backfire horribly because she lacks self-confidence.
A new look and a serious air of confidence have returned to Colin after his summer travels. That Penelope, the one person he’s ever known to accept him as he is, is now turning her back on him is a huge disappointment to him.
By helping Penelope gain self-confidence, Colin hopes to win back Penelope’s affections and get her back on the dating scene as soon as possible. However, when Colin’s lessons begin to work better than expected, he must decide whether or not his feelings for Penelope go beyond friendship.
Eloise (Claudia Jessie) has made an odd new acquaintance, complicating matters for Penelope, and her growing prominence in the tonne makes it increasingly harder for her to conceal her Lady Whistledown persona.
After Chris Van Dusen stepped down as showrunner at the end of Season 2, it was revealed that Jess Brownell would take over as showrunner and executive producer for the third and final season. Van Dusen, Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers, and Tom Verica of Shondaland continue to serve as executive producers.
