Meet the cast of Bridgerton
TV fans will soon be able to watch two beautiful Brits fall in love all over again, when Charithra Chandran (The Hunt for Vulcan) joins Kevin McKidd as Captain Harry Bridgerton in season two of A&E’s hit drama series, The Borgias. Beginning March 11th at 10/9c., Edwina Sharma will play Edwina –Harry’s cousin—who moves back into his townhouse after separating from her husband… and if that sounds familiar it should. Previously, John Light played Edwina’s role on season one of The Borgias before leaving over creative differences.
Meet the Crew of Bridgerton
Ladies and gentlemen, we’re excited to welcome a new face to our growing crew: Charithra Chandran as Edwina Sharma. Fans of season one may remember that Ed had a bit of a rough go of it. As she revealed in her very first episode, she is biracial and spent her childhood being ridiculed for looking different from everyone else at school. To add insult to injury, she didn’t fit in with Asian culture at home either—her family moved from Singapore when she was six years old, but they also felt like outsiders because they didn’t speak Cantonese or Mandarin well.
