Queen Charlotte Star Opens Up About Bridgerton Sequel's Representation

Bridgerton's Queen Charlotte is opening up about how the Netflix's spinoff reinforces representation in the series. Fans of the series have loved Golda Rosheuvel's take on the Queen throughout the first two season. In Queen Charlotte, she's splitting duties with India Ria Amarteifo, the younger version of her character. Bridgerton has never shied away from diverse casting decisions. The new series doubles down on the representation and Rosheuvel's comments to Digital Spy show that all the principal players involved are fully behind the creative team. In a world that can be hostile to diversity, showing what can be is a powerful choice to make.

The actress began, "I think especially in the world that we are in now, to celebrate Black History is really really important, and through a female protagonist, female historical character. I think is really cool and beautiful and right on and it's an extraordinary story because as we've said it's one of love which is very rare I think.

"And to know that these two people were passionate about each other way way way way way back in the 18th century and they wanted to be together, and they were a mixed couple you know and they wanted to celebrate that and the great experiment happened," Rosheuvel continued. "I think to bring that to the forefront of the world we're living in now and to really celebrate that is really important politically, emotionally and representing and inclusion all of that stuff it's really really important. So yeah, it is to be celebrated."
