Nicola Coughlan from Bridgerton

All Bridgerton fans know that in season one it was Nicola’s character Penelope who was spilling all the beans while under the pseudonym of Lady Whistledown.

So while talking about being the gossip queen of the show, Coughlan said that it was really exciting when in season one only she knew that secret and had to keep it safe. But now in season two she really liked how now that everyone knows about the big reveal. And there are a lot of consequences and side stories to be explored.

So while talking about her amazing friendship with Claudia, Nicola said that she is really grateful to her co-star because “when you’re playing that dynamic you wish for it to be someone that you really get on with” She then calls Claudia “kind”, “generous” and “lovely.”

Marriages and our society

Bridgerton is a hit Netflix historical drama about love, finding it, and marriages. So while about how we all love to discuss marriages and how important it is to choose the right partner. Nicola makes an amazing point, saying “history changes society changes but people inherently stay the same.”

She goes on to say that even though women nowadays have a better position in society than before and yet they feel a craving for a lot of traditional things which is very “subversive” according to her.

To end the interview when asked about her suitable partner Nicolas jokingly says “Harry Style isn’t available anymore”

We will be seeing more of Nicola when Derry Girls season 3 releases later this year.

Season two of Bridgerton is receiving great reviews just after mere hours of release on Netflix?
