What we know about Kathani
She was married at age sixteen to Anthony Bridgerton, Viscount Bridgerton (Dominic Cooper), who is twenty years her senior. In her first few scenes in season two, viewers will see that she is a kind-hearted woman with a natural affection for animals and children. She also appears to be polite, but naive and innocent when it comes to men, given how quickly she was able to develop feelings for Anthony after meeting him again only once. Although we have not yet seen any other scenes of her interacting with characters outside of her husband, I think we can safely assume that she is willing to be friends with others easily and has a general interest in getting to know people. Overall, I am excited about seeing more of Kathani on screen!
Dramatic Plotlines for The Second Series
A tale as old as time…or perhaps as old as reality TV? Yes, according to Life & Style Weekly, That ‘70s Show costars Milano and Ashton Kutcher are dating again. They’ve been out with friends a few times already and it’s going well, an insider tells Life & Style. It might be another on-and-off relationship for them like before, but for now they are just having fun seeing each other when they can. Both of them had good chemistry and were having a good time together. It is definitely not an exclusive relationship or anything serious yet.
Gossip on the Go
Everyone loves a good gossip (yes, even me), and there’s something about TV series that gives us a taste of that lifestyle. From Dynasty to The Affair, fans always want to know which celebrities are going to be popping up in our favorite shows. And if you’re anything like me, you probably go through every cast list for each new season with a fine-tooth comb. Last week, it was revealed that Love Island star Sophie Gradon will be joining season two of Bridgerton as Kathani Sharma—which is set to premiere on December 4th. Who is she? Where did she come from? Why do I already have an emotional investment in her love story?
