Why Nicola Coughlan thought she would be fired from Bridgerton

Some things seem too good to be true.

When Nicholas Coughlan starred as Penelope Featherington in the television adaptation of Julia Quinnit’s Bridgerton series, she was cautiously optimistic. “I should have said, ‘This is amazing,'” she said. The New York Times on the role. “Instead, I was like, ‘This is fishy. I don’t know about that.'”

Nicola was apprehensive because, according to NYT“she had known a lot of actors who had been hired for high-profile projects and then fired when the studio asked for a bigger name.”

In reality, showrunner Chris VanDussen was already singing his praises to everyone involved in the project: “I’m happy to say that everyone loved it as much as I did,” Van Dusen told the newspaper.

Now, with a season under her belt, Nicola is more confident in her abilities except for romantic scenes.
