Bridgerton Spoilers – Adjoa Andoh Says Daphne And Simon In Season 2 Are Like Meghan Markle And Prince Harry
Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and the Duke of Hastings Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page) said, “I do” and welcomed a child in the first season. As production gets underway for Season 2, Andoh reveals that she sees parallels between Daphne and Simon and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
“I really can’t say too much nor would you expect me to,” she dished, “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.”
“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?”
Are Meghan And Harry In Bridgerton?
She went on to say, “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.”
“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]?”
The new season will center on Daphne’s older brother, Lord Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey), reflecting the book The Viscount Who Loved Me, the second book in Julia Quinn’s series on which the show is based.
Bridgerton Updates – The Series Has Been Greenlighted For A Second Season
Andoh was asked about Lady Danbury’s future and she replied, that her character has “her eye across everything.”
“That said, for me, she’s a woman who’s had to box and cox in her life, she’s had to negotiate and navigate so she knows the skinny on everything. She’s going to be in the mix with the skinny of what is occurring in the hitching area and the powers and shakers and the movers in the town. She will be all across that, so you will get to see some of that this season. And see some of her developing relationships as well.”
