Trivia

  • Nicola was the first cast in the series. She only had to audition once.
  • The costume designers, John Glaser, John Norster and Ellen Mirojnick gave the two main families, featured in season 1, two very distinct color palettes; the Bridgertons typically wear pastels in shades of blue and pink, while the Featheringtons wear very bright colors and heavily patterned clothing that is often a shade of yellow or green. In total, more than 7.500 costume pieces were designed for the series.
  • Nicola was unfamiliar with the series of novels before being cast in the role of Penelope, and found out that her character was Lady Whistledown in the novels when she visited a fan message board.
Script developed by Never Enough Design
