Phoebe Dynevor – Call My Agent (2022)
Phoebe Dynevor portrays Daphne Basset in the first and second seasons of Bridgerton. While she may be taking a much bigger step back in the series’ sequel, her ability to steal a scene is still very much present. However, Dynevor has a number of upcoming projects that fans can look forward to.

Simone Ashley will be very familiar to Netflix fans who take on the role of the leading Lady Kate Sharma in the latest season of Bridgerton. The phenomenal actress has breathed life into a previously absent role and quickly fitted into an already established cast.

Luke Newton – Youth In Bed (2019)
Luke Newton made it really big in his casting as Colin Bridgerton in the titular show. As one of the main members of the family, his story continues to unfold over both seasons of the show, and there is no telling what the future may bring for him.
Right now, it does not appear that Newton has any projects in line. Disney fans may recognize the actor from the ongoing sit-com Logen, but recently he took on the role of Ethan in the short Youth in Bed. The acclaimed film spans different generations as it explores what it means to be young.
Luke Thompson – Misbehavior (2020)

Jonathan Bailey – Squadron 42 (TBD)
Jonathan Bailey portrayed Daphne’s charming older brother, Anthony Bridgerton, and the future seasons of the show will likely focus even more on his own personal narrative. While the cast for Bridgerton was certainly filled with talent, Bailey participates in a project that boasts even bigger names.
The video game Squadron 42 seems to tell a new military and science fiction story on a cinematic level that brings veterans like Gary Oldman, Mark Hamill, Mark Strong, Andy Serkis, Henry Cavill and Gillian Anderson in to play alongside Bailey’s Aaron Seetow. Unfortunately, its long production has resulted in the ambitious project still not setting a release date.
