New Netflix series Bridgerton starring Galway actress Nicola Coughlan has released a trailer ahead of the series’ premiere on Christmas Day.
From Creator Chris Van Dusen, Bridgerton follows Daphne, played by Phoebe Dynevor, the eldest daughter of the powerful Bridgerton family as she makes her debut onto Regency London’s competitive marriage market.
Hoping to follow in her parent’s footsteps and find a match sparked by true love, Daphne’s prospects initially seem to be unrivaled.
But as her older brother begins to rule out potential suitors, the high society scandal sheet written by the mysterious Lady Whistledown – voiced by Julie Andrews – casts aspersions on Daphne.
Enter the highly desirable and rebellious Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page), committed bachelor and the catch of the season for the debutantes’ mamas.
Despite proclaiming that they want nothing the other has to offer, their attraction is undeniable and sparks fly as they find themselves engaged in an increasing battle of wits while navigating society’s expectations for their future.
The series is a romantic and scandalous, celebrating the timelessness of enduring friendships, families finding their way, and the search for a love that conquers all.
