From their past roles to their personal lives, here’s everything to know about the cast of the Bridgerton spinoff series.
The world of Bridgerton is expanding with the new spinoff series, Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story.
Taking place in two different time periods, the new series documents Queen Charlotte’s time on the throne as well as her love story with King George III.
While several Bridgerton stars appear on the series, including Golda Rosheuvel as Queen Charlotte and Adjoa Andoh as Lady Danbury, the show also has a slew of new faces, with some playing younger versions of characters and others playing brand-new characters.
For many young stars, the series actually marks their breakout role. During the show’s Los Angeles premiere, Corey Mylchreest, who plays young King George III, spoke to PEOPLE about how he’s bracing for the newfound stardom, including getting labeled as a Bridgerton heartthrob.
“It’s a testament to the team at Netflix, and Shonda [Rhimes]’s writing, and Tom [Verica]’s direction, and everyone else’s acting,” he said. “They could put anyone in this role, and they would be a contender for whatever sort of sexy man thing there is. So, I don’t feel any need to prepare for that because I don’t think it’s necessarily coming.”
From their previous acting roles to their personal lives, here’s everything to know about the cast of Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story.
India Ria Amarteifio as Young Queen Charlotte
While India Ria Amarteifio is sure to get a lot of attention for her role as young Queen Charlotte, this isn’t her first big acting job.
She got her start in the entertainment industry at a young age. In 2011, she made her West End debut as young Nala in The Lion King before appearing in a number of other theater productions, including Matilda the Musical, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Drury Lane.
She then moved on to TV roles, including The Interceptor, The Evermoor Chronicles and Line of Duty, just to name a few. In 2019, she made her feature film debut in the comedy Military Wives before eventually getting cast on the Bridgerton spinoff.
“It has felt completely surreal,” Amarteifio said in a Netflix press release about stepping into the role. “As we know, the Bridgerton world and the fandom is huge, so I knew that stepping into it was going to mean I had big shoes to fill — not only as Young Charlotte, because Golda has created an iconic role, but just entering the sphere itself. There are a lot of eyes and a lot of pressure, but I’m really, really loving it.”
Streaming May 4 only on Netflix.
