Nicola Coughlan teases what to expect from Bridgerton season two: ‘It’s very exciting’

Nicola Coughlan has teased what to expect from Bridgerton season two.

The Irish actress plays Penelope Featherington in the hit Netflix series, and is currently filming the upcoming season in London.

Speaking on RTÉ Radio 1’s Morning Ireland, the 34-year-old said: “Back in the corset and the wigs! We’re deep into it, but it’s so exciting to be back at work, it’s been brilliant.”

When asked about the upcoming season, Nicola admitted she was “trying to think what I can say without getting in trouble with Netflix”.

“It’s very exciting,” she said. “Bridgerton is based on a book series by Julia Quinn and there’s eight stories so there’s eight Bridgerton siblings.”

“This series moves on to Anthony Bridgerton’s story. Penelope’s definitely still doing her… Oh gosh, I was about to say – it’s a huge spoiler!”

“If you know what happened at the end of the series, lots more of that is happening. Ok, just stopped myself in time!”

Reacting to her Irish Film & TV Award nomination, Nicola said: “It means so much to be recognised by the people from home – that’s so, so important and so, so lovely.”

“The women I’m nominated with, like Fiona Shaw and Sarah Greene – I admire them so, so much. It’s just a massive honour; it really is.”

The Galway native goes up against Killing Eve’s Fiona Shaw, Smother stars Gemma-Leah Devereux and Seána Kerslake, and Normal People’s Sarah Greene in the Supporting Actress Drama category.
