We can’t even imagine what it would be like to star in Bridgerton. You think you’re doing a show that some people may watch, not realizing that it’s a show that people will obsess over.
“Being famous is like being a dog on the Tube,” Nicola said. “It’s exactly the same energy. When you get on, everyone looks at you. Some people are so smiley, while some are afraid of you and don’t want to go near. Some people touch you without asking. I can still do the things I want to do, obviously, but it is different. I went to the pub with my friend a while back and it was like being an animal at the zoo. People just watching and looking. And I remember one time I was taking my Invisalign out, and this person was staring me right in the eyes, which was quite weird. But, honestly, most people are so, so lovely.”
Did she expect it?
“I didn’t think it was going to be the biggest show on Netflix, I didn’t think that level,” she told the outlet . “But I had lunch with Phoebe [Dynevor] maybe about two months before it came out. And I said, “I think your life’s going to change.” And she was like, ‘No, I don’t know. I’ve done things before that people thought was going to be huge and it hasn’t worked out.” But I just had that instinct about it.’”
We love Bridgerton and love Nicola. We can’t wait to for season 2!
