'Bridgerton': This Is What "Penelope" Looks Like In Real Life
While the main love story between "Simon" and "Daphne" has the attention of all, the subplot involving "Penelope" and "Colin" is also juicy. Is the actress playing "Penelope" really a redhead though?
The latest and most popular Netflix series, Bridgerton, is based on novels by Julia Quinn. Some critics have said that it is a cross between Gossip Girl and Downton Abbey while others have been reminded of Pride & Prejudice. Regardless of what they think though, Netflix viewers have spoken and done so loudly. The series was expected to be popular but it has gone on to be the most-watched new series on Netflix so far.
The cast includes some fresh faces but the legendary Julie Andrews provides the voice-over as "Lady Whistledown". Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page perform in the lead roles and actress Nicola Coughlan is a regular as "Penelope". Watch the video above to learn more about Nicola.
