‘Bridgerton’ casts Simone Ashley as Lord Anthony’s love interest

Starlet Simone Ashley has actually been cast as Kate Sharma, according to a tweet from Netflix.

“Get ready to fall in love with Simone Ashley, who will play Kate in Season 2 of Bridgerton. Kate is a smart, headstrong young woman who suffers no fools — Anthony Bridgerton very much included.”

Season 2 of the series will follow Lord Anthony, played by Jonathan Bailey, on his “quest for love.”

The series was developed by Chris Van Dusen and produced by Shonda Rhimes — based upon Julia Quinn’s books. The program is the very first series for Rhimes under her Netflix offer.

News of a 2nd season came last month, much to the relief of fans. The brand-new season is anticipated to start shooting this spring however a best date has actually not yet been revealed.
