The real name of Newton is Austin, and Charithra Chandran, Simone Ashley, and Jonathan Bailey have a lot of stories to share about the recent cast addition. They loved the dog during filming and had a lot of things to tell about him. Newton aka Austin is “not necessarily the best-behaved dog”, claims Jonathan Bailey and Simone Ashley about their co-star in Bridgerton Season 2. Newton adds sass to the show by never listening to others and only doing whatever he pleased.
Working with Newton, the Corgi
Recently, Entertainment Weekly uploaded a video where Simone Ashley and Jonathan Bailey share their slightly different experiences working with the adorable Corgi, Newton, in season 2 of Bridgerton.
Simon Ashley believed that when she was with Austin, he kind of listened to her. But most of the time, he ate snacks and did his own thing. She also said, “It was always a good day for me when he was on set.”
While on the other hand, Jonathan Bailey claims he didn’t get along with Newton aka Austin. He says Austin loves sausages. So, to handle the scene, the crew gives some crumbs of sausages to Anthony’s hand. So, that he will jump on Anthony’s lap.
From their conversation, we can guess it was difficult for the crew of Bridgerton season 2 to make Newton aka Austin perform certain scenes. Are you awaiting corgi’s brilliant performance in the upcoming season? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
