This Is How The Bridgerton Cast Looks Like Out Of Costume

By Francis Tunwase

Netflix releases several new shows on a daily basis. However, not all of these shows are actually good or successful. But every once in a while, the streaming service hits the jackpot and releases spectacular shows that go on to achieve international success.

Bridgerton is one of those shows. Granted, the series was much awaited due to the fact that it is based on a popular book franchise, but no one expected the show to be this popular among young adults and adults of all genders.

Even after two seasons, viewers of Bridgerton may still be fooled into thinking that the actors actually reside in 19th-century England. But they don’t.

When they take off their period garb, you’ll be surprised to find out how exactly your beloved Bridgerton characters look.

Regé-Jean Page (Simon Basset)

Page has since left the show, but he used to portray the love interest of Daphne Bridgerton, Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings. Considering that the production is based on the novel The Duke And I, Page and Phoebe Dynevor were cast as the main characters.

Regé made his cinematic debut in Sylvie’s Love and has since gone on to star in more films. He has also frequently appeared in another Shondaland series, For the People.

Phoebe Dynevor (Daphne Bridgerton)

Phoebe Dynevor is a young actress who hadn’t done a lot of work prior to being cast as Daphne Bridgerton, the main star of the show’s successful debut season.

Her previous credits include starring roles in Snatch and Waterloo Road, in addition to her regular character on Younger, which are mainly popular in the UK.

Golda Rosheuvel (Queen Charlotte)

Rosheuvel, in the show, portrays Queen Charlotte. She played the role of King George III’s wife and the progenitor of later British monarchs such as Victoria and Elizabeth II. Queen Charlotte is often cited by historians as evidence of the presence of a black descendant of the royal line.

Rosheuvel previously had starring roles in series like Dead Boss and Silent Witness. She has plenty of experience on stage as well, having featured in different plays, including 2008’s The Frontline, at London’s Shakespeare Globe Theatre.

Jonathan Bailey (Anthony Bridgerton)

Bailey takes on the role of Viscount Bridgerton, Daphne’s brother and the family’s eldest son. While he wasn’t a main character in the debut season, he definitely was the star of the second season.

Bailey has been in several successful television series before Bridgerton, including Leonardo, W1A, and Broadchurch. His performance as Jamie in the 2018 West End revival of Company earned him a Launce Olivier Award. He’s also set to star in the Wicked movie adaptation.
