One of the protagonists of the fiction appears at the age of 17, while the actress who plays the role of her is 34 The Bridgertons have become a phenomenon on Netflix. The series created by Chris Van Dusen and produced by Shonda Rhimes is set in the world of London high society at the time of the Regency period, at the beginning of the 19th century. Her starting point shows the eldest daughter of a powerful family and her debut in the marriage market with the goal of marrying for love.
The fiction is based on the saga of books written by Julia Quinn. The first season focuses on El Duque y Yo, which was published in 2000. The novel allows to know how old are the protagonists of the story. The age of some characters is far removed from that of their interpreters in the television adaptation, as Cosmopolitan has exposed. Daphne Bridgerton is 21 years old and the actress who gives her life, Phoebe Dynevor, 25. Simon Basset is older than the girl, since in the episodes it is indicated that he studied with his older brother.
The Duke of Hastings is 29 years old, while the actor who plays him, Regé-Jean Page, has turned 31. Anthony Bridgerton is the eldest son of the family, aged 30, a fact that is revealed at the beginning of the series. His interpreter is Jonathan Bailey, who is 32. Benedict Bridgerton is younger at 27, but the actor who takes on his role, Luke Thompson, is also 32.
For his part, Colin Bridgerton appears in the story at 22 years old, only one less than the actor who plays his role, Luke Newton, who has turned 23. One of the most notable age differences is presented by the character of Eloise Bridgerton. Daphne’s more non-conformist sister is 17 in fiction, but her interpreter, Claudia Jessie, is already 31. Something similar happens with Penelope Featherington. Eloise’s friend is also 17 in the chapters. However, the actress who gets into her skin, Nicola Coughlan, has turned 34.
