Bridgerton spin-off ‘Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story’ releases first look of Young Lady Danbury
Happy New Year Bridgerton fans! The highly anticipated prequel Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story will debut in 2023. It follows the titular Charlotte (India Amarteifio) as she marries a youthful King George (Corey Mylchreest), sparking revolution throughout the Ton. Audiences will still be able to glimpse some of London society’s most recognizable characters in their younger years, even if the series is set some time before the events of the main Bridgerton series.
As mentioned earlier, Arsema Thomas’ portrayal of a young Lady Danbury will be one of those faces. A new first-look image from Netflix shows a young Agatha Danbury dressed to the nines and chatting with someone who might be Charlotte. The younger version of Lady Danbury, according to Netflix, would depict a woman seeking her place in a society in transition as she was Charlotte’s confidante and mentor in the early stages of her marriage. Although Lady Danbury is married to the somewhat older Lord Danbury (Cyril Nri), the series will see her develop into the mature character that Bridgerton fans have come to love.
The picture also gives us a good idea that the series would spend a lot of time describing how Queen Charlotte and Lady Danbury became such good friends. In Bridgerton it is clear that Lady Danbury (Adjoa Andoh) and Queen Charlotte (Golda Rosheuvel) have a strong bond and even conspire with each other about the romantic lives of the young people in their immediate environment.
Who’s in Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story?
Alongside Bridgerton newcomers Michelle Fairley as Princess Augusta and Connie Jenkins-Grieg as Young Violet, the series will also star Amarteifio, Thomas and Nri. Other cast members include Sam Clemmett as Young Brimsley, Freddie Dennis as Reynolds, Richard Cunningham as Lord Bute, Tunji Kasim as Adolphus, and Rob Maloney as the Royal Doctor. Rosheuvel, Andoh, Ruth Gemmell as Lady Violet Bridgerton and Hugh Sachs as an elderly Brimsley reprise their respective roles from Bridgerton.
