In Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story, Shondaland’s latest Netflix hit series, we get to meet the younger versions of many characters, including Queen Charlotte and Lady Danbury. In this video, Golda Rosheuvel, joined by India Amarteifio, explains how wonderful it is to “embrace the next generation and give them the platform to be able to shine”; Adjoa Andoh and Arsema Thomas chat about their shared connection with Lady Danbury; and Sam Clemmett and Hugh Sachs bond over Brimsley. Corey Mylchreest and James Fleet also discuss the two versions of King George, whose personal ailment is the core of the series’ tragedy. “You see them young and happy, but you know where it ends up,” Mylchreest notes. Watch to discover how the cast pay tribute to one another.
