A Lovely Second: The Solid of Queen Charlotte on the New Bridgerton Prequel | Interviews

The unique collection took it as understood that there was full range, and all people was tremendous with that. And I really like the best way that this collection opens up that dialog. And that scene that you’ve got with the Queen is one among my favorites. Inform me what making that challenge specific does for this collection.

ARSEMA THOMAS: I believe it grounds it within the present actuality that we’re in. There’s something that that is perhaps pessimistic, however, undeserving about having a utopic society like Bridgerton, which is numerous with out an evidence for methods to get there. And I believe there’s one thing so aspirational about this present as a result of it reveals that it is one thing that you simply don’t simply get handed. It’s important to combat for it. And a variety of these instances, it is girls who’re combating for it, and so they by no means get that recognition. 

There’s something in our collection that’s eerily just like so many moments of historical past, and there is one thing stunning about telling a narrative that is on the tipping level of change. This can be a level the place it may both return to the best way it was, and we proceed the cycle repeatedly, or we go over the hump and alter it. And to see what it seems to be like on the opposite aspect of that hump, I believe, is what this present does. I believe it makes it impactful. It colours “Bridgerton” in a complete totally different manner. This present primarily provides you three seasons of “Bridgerton.” 

Charlotte, Agatha, and George all battle in lives that seem to have nice energy however, in actuality, are very restricted. 

ARSEMA THOMAS: All three of our characters actually begin out the identical manner, which is extraordinarily, extraordinarily imprisoned in no matter life-style that they didn’t select. After which choices begin to seem that by no means had been there. Chance begins to grow to be a really actual factor.

Earlier than that, the truth that Agatha is complacent will not be as a result of she hates herself or doesn’t care; it is as a result of she has by no means thought there was another choice ever. From three years previous, being groomed for a husband, it is primarily brainwashing. After which, the second she will get the title of Woman, you begin to see the gears. The rust is dismissing, they begin to flip.
