Nerdophiles spoke with the wildly talented and so incredibly kind Claudia Jessie (Bull) and Nicola Coughlan (Derry Girls) about their respective characters Eloise Bridgerton and Penelope Featherington in Netflix’s period drama, Bridgerton!
Created by Chris Van Dusen (Scandal) in partnership with Shondaland, Eloise Bridgerton (Jessie) is headstrong, independent, and not at all interested in being shipped off via an arranged marriage like her sister Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor, Snatch). Penelope Featherington (Coughlan) is smart, caring, loves those closest to her with fierce protection, but is having a hard time fitting into London’s high society. At least she has her best friend Eloise to lean on and figure out what they both want out of life and more! While no shortage of scandals and romance, the dynamic between Eloise & Penelope provides another layer of sisterhood onscreen that we love to see!
Watch our sit-down with Claudia Jessie and Nicola Coughlan about their offscreen relationship that informed their onscreen dynamic, Bridgerton secrets, and so much more!
Get ready for sisterhood, life lessons, and so much more when Bridgerton premieres on Netflix this Christmas Day, December 25th!
