Bridgerton's Lady Danbury Says Season 2 Has Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Parallels
Bridgerton fans are eagerly awaiting the Netflix sensation's next season — and the show's stars are opening up as production starts. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Adjoa Andoh, who plays Lady Danbury, explains that season 2 brings a little bit of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry into the mix, sort of. She said that Daphne Bridgerton and Simon Basset's new life is something like the Sussex's, though she didn't offer much more insight than that.
"I really can't say too much nor would you expect me to, but I guess what we do know absolutely is that they're married now. It's a new married life and they have the baby, so there are all the vagaries of what that is like for young people with a new baby," Andoh told ET. "I mean Harry and Meghan, what's it like when you have a new baby? How does it affect you when [you are] a young couple with a new baby?"
She went on to say that fans can expect more from the couple, even though the show's sophomore season is rumored to be focusing on the Bridgerton family's big brother, Anthony.
"I just think we're going to see how Phoebe and Regé's characters, Daphne and Simon, navigate being in love, very in lust still, but with a new baby in their lives," she said. "Having to navigate and negotiate that between each other, between their families and between their wider social circles. Yeah, it's going to be interesting ... [And with Simon], how do you father when you haven't even fathered [or had a father]?"
And while some viewers didn't think the show was sexy enough, Andoh thinks that the second season could change their minds. With the spotlight on Anthony, actor Jonathan Bailey is ready to step it up, she said.
"I would never argue with Johnathan Bailey, especially not around things to do with sexy because he is a very sexy man," Andoh added. "Let me tell you so, as Anthony Bridgerton, the eldest son, it's time for you Anthony! So if he says it's going to be sexy then he knows whereof he speaks because that boy's got to get hitched. So yeah, I don't think audiences will be disappointed, let's put it that way."
