Golda Rosheuvel said it has been a “humbling experience” to have her Bridgerton character, Queen Charlotte, turned into a spin-off series.
The actress, who has starred in both series of Netflix’s hit Regency-era drama, said she was “very proud” that the character has been received so well by fans.
She stars alongside Hugh Sachs, Sam Clemmett and India Ria Amarteifio, who plays the younger version of Queen Charlotte.
“It’s a really humbling experience – you always want your work to be received well by people,” she told the PA news agency
“And for Queen Charlotte to be a fan favourite and then for Shonda Rhimes and Netflix to want to do a deeper dive into this character, it’s great. I feel very proud.”
She added that she and Amarteifio had never worked with each other or filmed on the same day.
“So the only advice that I gave her was to take it and make it her own. And she’s done an amazing job, a beautiful job.”
Show creator Rhimes said that having worked on the original Bridgerton series, working on the Queen Charlotte spin-off was “like coming home”.
“I’m so honoured. I think it’s amazing,” she told PA.
“It was not something I ever would have expected and I think it’s a real honour. I was excited.”
Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story is due for release on Netflix on May 4.
