As reported in Deadline, Simone Ashley has been tapped to play Kate Sharma (Kate Sheffield in the books), the female lead opposite Jonathan Bailey’s Anthony Bridgerton in season two of Bridgerton.

Newly arrived in London, Kate is a smart, headstrong young woman who suffers no fools — Anthony Bridgerton very much included. Their love story is chronicled in the second book of the Bridgerton series, The Viscount Who Loved Me.

The books and the shows come together here.
