It takes place at two different times. There are some Bridgerton stars on the show, like Golda Rosheuvel as Queen Charlotte and Adjoa Andoh as Lady Danbury. But there are also a lot of new names, with some playing younger versions of characters and others playing brand-new ones.

India Ria Amarteifio as Young Queen Charlotte

India Ria Amarteifio’s part as young Queen Charlotte is sure to get her a lot of attention, but this isn’t her first big acting job. She started out in show business when she was young.

Since then, she has been in a number of other plays, such as Matilda the Musical, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Drury Lane.

She then moved on to TV shows like The Interceptor, The Evermoor Chronicles, and Line of Duty, just to name a few. In 2019, she made her first full-length movie, a comedy called “Military Wives.” Later, she was hired in a spinoff of “Bridgerton,” which was also a comedy.

In a press release from Netflix, Amarteifio said about taking on the part, “It has felt like a dream.” “As we all know, the Bridgerton world and fandom are huge, so I knew that stepping into it would mean I had big shoes to fill, not only as Young Charlotte, because Golda has created an iconic role, but just entering the sphere itself. There are a lot of eyes and a lot of pressure, but I’m really, really loving it.”

Queen Charlotte Was Played by Golda Rosheuvel

Golda Rosheuvel plays Queen Charlotte, her Bridgerton character, in the “present-day” time period on the new spinoff show. Rosheuvel is best known for her part as the royal figure, but she has also played roles on stage in Porgy and Bess, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, Angels in America, and Jesus Christ Superstar, among others.

In Everyman Theatre’s production of Othello in 2019, she also played a female version of Othello. Rosheuvel told Liverpool Queer Collective that her part in the Othello production was important because she was a black lesbian playing a gay character. During the interview, she also talked about her partner, the writer Shireen Mula.

When asked if she thinks there are more gay roles and actors in theater, she talked about Shireen Mula. “No, I don’t,” she said. “My partner, Shireen Mula, is a writer, and she struggles to get her work seen. She writes gay work because that’s what she knows. But do we see gay plays or gay characters? I think it’s a shame.

He has been in a few short films and had a small part as Adonis on The Sandman, which is on Netflix. Bridgerton has a long history of making their main men into heartthrobs, but Mylchreest told PEOPLE that he’s not trying to think too much about that possibility. He told PEOPLE at the opening of the show, “I don’t think there’s any need to mentally prepare for that.

Who knows what’s going to happen?” “It’s a testament to the Netflix team, Shonda Rhimes’s writing, Tom Verica’s direction, and everyone else’s acting,” he said. “They could put anyone in this role, and that person would be a candidate for whatever sexy man thing there is. I don’t think I need to get ready for that, though, because I don’t think it’s likely to happen.”

Adjoa Andoh as Lady Danbury

“This was our first big thing, so we could all relate to feeling like a fraud, being nervous, and wondering if we belong here,” they said. “Knowing that you are not alone in that way kind of takes away the feeling in general, because everyone is such a great, formidable actor that you have confidence in them and, by extension, confidence in yourself.”

Violet Bridgerton Is Played by Ruth Gemmell

Ruth Gemmell plays the mother of the Bridgerton family for a second time. Gemmell went to the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art and has played many parts over the years.

It’s now Connie’s job to create a younger Violet, and it’s up to the audience to be able to bridge the gap between the young woman and the older woman,” she said. “I wouldn’t have wanted to get in the way of her work, and it’s fun to see them all come in and give these characters their own energy.”

Kasim told 1883 magazine that he didn’t want to be an actor when he was younger because both of his parents are “more based in academia.” “The arts weren’t really an option for me until I met a drama teacher in high school.

He told Netflix, “We met at the first readthrough. I was very nervous, but we were all very nervous. He gave me a big hug, and we just started.” He said, “I haven’t had much to work with for a while, so I’ve started doing my own thing to flesh out Brimsley’s bones.” I heard and took that into account.

Princess Augusta is Played by Michelle Fairley

I still haven’t read the books, though, so please don’t tell Julia Quinn.”
