‘Brigerton’: The real age of the cast vs. that of their characters (Pen and Eloise are much older)

After more than two years of waiting, ‘Brigerton 3’ has already been released on Netflix, which means that, in the coming days, the popularity of the actors of the series will increase. A fact that many may not know is that several members of the cast are significantly older than the age of their fictional characters.

‘Bridgerton’: the real ages of the cast vs. those of their characters

Before comparing the ages of the actors to those of the characters, it should be noted that there are few instances where it is stated how old the Bridgertons and other members of society are.

Additionally, there have been some changes to the timelines presented, so these are rather estimates.

The stars of the third season of ‘Brigerton’ fall to Nicola Coughlan and Luke Newton, who play Penelope and Colin respectively, who it turns out are 24 and 19 years old.

In a remarkable contrast, Coughlan is already in his 37th year, which ended on January 9. Newton, for his part, is currently 31 years old.

Although Jonathan Bailey will only have a few appearances in the third season of “Bridgerton” as Anthony, the head of the family is believed to be 32 years old at this point in the story. In real life, the actor is enjoying his 36 years (born on April 25, 1988).

His fictional wife, Kate Sharma, would be 27 for the third season of “Bridgerton” (when she was introduced in the previous one, she was reported to be 26), while actress Simone Ashley turned 29 last March.

Luke Thompson, who plays Benedict Bridgerton, was born in 1988, so he’ll be 36 in a few months. In contrast, his character as the second son of the family is 29 years old in the third part of the Netflix series.

Another of the biggest age differences between ‘Bridgerton’s’ characters and its actors is found in Claudia Jessie, who plays a 19-year-old Eloise Bridgerton. In real life, the actress is 34 years old.

The third season of ‘Bridgerton’ will see the debut of Hannah Dodd in the role of Francesa Bridgerton (previously played by Ruby Stoke). Although in the previous chapters the 18-year-old sister did not have such a relevant role, it is expected that in this installment she will stand out even more. In real life, the actress is 28 and about to turn 29.

Will Tilston grew up on the set of the Netflix series and still has a few seasons left to take over the lead, though he’s already starting to stand out as Gregory Bridgerton. In the third installment of the series he is supposed to be 14 years old, not far from the 17 that the actor actually is.

A similar case is that of Florence Hunt, who plays Hyacinth. In theory, the youngest of the Bridgertons is 13 years old, while the actress turned 17 last February.

Ruth Gemmell plays Violet Hastings. Matriarch Bridgerton will be in her fifth decade of life, at 49 years old. In real life, the actress is 56 years old.

Golda Rosheuvel has endeared herself to ‘Brigerton’ audiences with her portrayal of Queen Charlotte. The performer turned 54 in early May, although her character’s age has not been mentioned in the Netflix series. If you consider the historical figure he is believed to be inspired by, he should be around 70.

‘Bridgerton’: Netflix series changed the ages of book characters?

Among the many changes Netflix has made to the Seducing Mr. Bridgerton’, on which it is based, are also the ages of its characters.

For example, Julia Quinn wrote that Colin and Penelope were 33 and 28 respectively when they finally fall in love and marry.

For their part, Anthony and Kate were 30 and 21 respectively when their love story unfolded.

Benedict Bridgerton gets married, to a character who has yet to appear in the series, at the age of 29.

In the books “Seducing Mr. Bridgerton” it is clarified that Eloise and Penelope are not only the same age, but that they are also getting married at 28.

Francesa has a complicated history but finds her definitive love story at 27.

Hyacinth is the youngest to marry: he is only 22 years old when he reaches the altar.

The youngest of the Bridgertons, Gregory, is 26 when he marries.
