Get to Know Simone Ashley, Bridgerton’s New Leading Lady


We’re still waiting for an official release date for the second season of BridgertonFortunately, the popular Netflix series gave us something that will keep us in suspense until then: a new leading actress! Back in February, it was announced that Simone Ashley had joined the cast as Kate Sharma, Anthony Bridgerton’s (Jonathan Bailey) love interest, and we got our first glimpse of Kate’s debut on April 30th when she and Jonathan were seen on the set .

“Simone Ashley is Miss Kate Sharma,” Shondaland tweeted. “Newly arrived in London, Kate is a bright, headstrong young woman who has no fools – including Anthony Bridgerton.” We are actually surprised that Lady Whistledown didn’t find out sooner! While we wait for more details about the upcoming season, learn more about it Bridgerton‘s newest addition ahead. Does that also mean that Anthony has finally moved away from Siena Rosso?
