Bridgerton has become wildly popular since its release in December last year and it seems that fans have another reason to be excited about season 2 as Kate Sharma will be played by sex educations Simone Ashley. You might recognise Simone as Olivia from Sex Education.
Fans have been praising the series for its diversity and it seems that Kate Sharma will be pretty important to the plot. Spoiler alert, it’s rumoured that Kate will be Anthony’s love interest!
South asian fans of the series are incredibly excited to see some representation of them on screen. One change in the books to the screen is the name. Kate Sheffield was the name of the character in the books however the new name of Sharma seems to better reflect the heritage of the casting.
It’s great to see more diversity in characters so that it can better reflect people in our society. We’re really excited to see Simone in this next season and especially seeing the steamy tension that Bridgerton creates in season 2!
