Bridgerton, here’s where we have already seen the protagonists: map of the titles where to find the actors of the Neflix TV series
Bridgerton-mania shows no signs of abating and, pending the second season (hopefully at Christmas on Netflix), it is now impossible to do without the protagonists. Apart from the narrator, Oscar winner Julie Andrews, who can be seen everywhere, from Mary Poppins to All Together Passionately, and who in the original language turns into the mysterious Lady Whistledown, where is it possible to admire the talent of the young cast?
The most famous – at least so far – remains there new entry Simone Ashley, future viscountess in next chapter, based on the novel of the same name by Julia Quinn The viscount who loved me. The actress has already taken part in one of the platform’s most successful teen series, Sex education, but she is not the only “familiar” face. This large group of made in UK talents has already kept us company in various episodes, but perhaps we have not paid too much attention to it. The lucky ones have enjoyed them live in West End theaters in London, as in the case of Luke Newton (Colin) and Golda Rosheuvel (Queen Charlotte).
Looking forward to seeing their performances at Bridgerton again, in all their glory between dances and receptions , here are the five projects that have kept them busy recently.
Regé-Jean Page (Simon)
Thanks to his Duke of Hastings, Regé-Jean Page has already won the leading role in the cinema in the adaptation of Dungeons & Dragons (in the room in 2022), while the toto-castings that would like him as the protagonist of Black Panther or the next 007 multiply. Meanwhile, he flew to New York in these days to participate as an episode host on Saturday Night Live. So far, the 30-year-old Brit’s career hasn’t included any major projects, but something has changed thanks to meeting Shonda Rhimes for the legal drama For the people, still unpublished in Italy. For two years he played a prosecutor, Leonard Knox, one of the new recruits of the court who has to clash with public defenders to make a career. That first step in the court of the creator of Grey’s Anatomy it completely changed his life …

Phoebe Dynevor (Daphne)
The interpreter of the young and innocent Daphne, Phoebe Dyvenor, has proven so far chameleonic skills notable. Just look at the last two series in which he participated: in “Snatch”, installment adaptation of the cult film with Brad Pitt available on TIMVision. This time he joins Rupert Grint (Ron in the Harry Potter saga) in a kind of low-profile criminal association with other London peers. It all starts for fun, to make a living as ingenious scammers, but then the situation gets out of hand … Lotti, his alter ego, is not really the “boss’s babe”, even if he is a steady couple with Sonny (Ed Westwick), because in fact she turns out to be smarter and more intriguing than her male colleagues. In Younger, on the other hand, with Hilary Duff (the series aired on FOX channels), she is the disturbing element of the couple formed by Liza (Sutton Foster) and Josh (Nico Tortorella), of which she then plays the Irish girlfriend / wife. The series, born from the creator of Sex and the City Darren Star, is based on the brilliant novel by Pamela Redmond Satran (Piemme). And the history fans really loved to hate her …

Nicola Coughlan (Penelope)
Before putting on the yellow dresses of the romantic Penelope, Nicola Coughlan he wore the uniform of Clare, high school student of Derry Girls (on Netflix), sitcom set in the Nineties in Northern Ireland during the riots in the town where she attends a girls’ school. There is very little to laugh about, however, in the drama series Harlots (unpublished in Italy), which tells the life of prostitutes in the eighteenth century in which Liv Tyler also took part. The actress still wore a corset – but this time skimpy – for Hannah Dalton. Brilliant, ironic and shrewd, in one way or another this 34-year-old from Galway always manages to find feminine roles that are over the top, unpredictable and exciting. And it is certainly not a small dowry.

Jonathan Bailey (Anthony)
Jonathan Bailey, which lends the face to Anthony, eldest son of the Bridgerton family, has a long track record that includes theater, film and television projects. On the small screen he made himself noticed in the cast of British Broadchurch gem (it aired on Giallo) with David Tennant and Olivia Colman. The thriller saw him star in the role of a young and ambitious reporter who tries to shed light on the heinous crimes that befall the English coastal town. His versatile talent did not go unnoticed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) who wanted him by his side in the comedy. Crashing (on Netflix) to tell a group of roommates between the ages of twenty and thirty grappling with the challenge of maturity.

Claudia Jessie (Eloise)
Claudia Jessie was already used to costume tv series before playing the rebel Eloise: she proved it in Vanity Fair (already seen on LaF), where she plays Amelia (also in the opening photo), one who – unlike Miss Bridgerton – daydreams of getting married and living the romantic fantasy of every girl of her age. Much more naive than we saw her in Shonda Rhimes’ Regency, she has so far been portrayed as innocent and gullible, easily handled by the ambitious protagonist, Becky (Olivia Cooke). Instead, the register changes Porters hospital sitcom, still unpublished in Italy, where the 31-year-old from Birmingham plays Lucy, a member of the ward staff of an imaginary structure where everything really happens. That she was histrionic and witty had already shown, in short, but the best is yet to come.
