According to Variety, Daniel Francis, Sam Phillips, and James Phoon will be joining the Bridgerton cast for its third season which will focus on the love story of Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) and Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton).
Per Variety, Daniel Francis will reportedly play Marcus Anderson who has been described as “a charismatic presence who lights up any room he enters, attracting the notice of certain matriarchs in the ton and the ire of others.”
Sam Phillips will be playing Lord Debling who will be a “genial lord with unusual interests, he has wealth and a noble title to back up his eccentricities. He'll have no shortage of interest from young ladies this season.”
Meanwhile, James Phoon will be starring as Harry Dankworth. According to the show’s creators, “what Dankworth lacks in wit and intelligence, he more than makes up for with seriously good looks.”
Speaking about the storyline, Variety reports that Penelope, after hearing Colin’s negative remarks about her last season, decided to finally let go of her long-standing crush.
Penelope then decided that it’s time to get married, ideally to a man who will give her enough freedom to continue living a double life as Lady Whistledown. However, her attempts in the marriage market fail miserably due to her lack of confidence.
Colin, on the other hand, has a fresh appearance and an impressive swagger after returning from his summer travels. But he is disappointed to learn that Penelope, the only person who has ever accepted him for who he is, is shunning him. He offers to teach her confidence-building techniques in an effort to win back her friendship.
In this season, Colin must decide whether his feelings for Penelope are really just friendly as his lessons begin to work a little too effectively.
Penelope’s rift with Eloise (Claudia Jessie), who has made a new friend in an odd place, will also complicate matters, and her increasing visibility in the town makes it harder than ever to maintain her mysterious identity as Lady Whistledown. (ANI)
