Queen Charlotte Cast Opens Up About Expanding the Bridgerton Universe

Out chats with the cast of Netflix's new spin-off series about making the already diverse Bridgerton universe bigger and better.

Queen Charlotte has officially made her debut!

A spin-off prequel series that tells the story of the early days of the arranged marriage between Young Queen Charlotte (India Amarteifio) and Young King George III (Corey Mylchreest), Netflix's Queen Charlotte expands the lore of the Bridgerton universe, continuing its legacy of representation and inclusion. And (spoiler alert!) LGBTQ+ fans who have been dying for some action in the sexy media franchise will also be glad to know that the gays are very much present in the world of Queen Charlotte.

Out contributor Gabriella Angelina sat down with the cast of Queen Charlotte to talk about continuing to deliver much-need representation to a popular and mainstream television franchise like Bridgerton, getting to be a part of a Shonda Rhimes project, how they prepared for their roles, and more!

"If my existence in this show as an out-and-proud human being inspires people, then that's amazing," lesbian actress and 2022 Out100 honoree Golda Rosheuvel told Out when asked about being a role model for LGBTQ+ talent. "But also, you know, to see India wearing, in the show, in the bedroom, wearing a wrap around her head while she's going to sleep... that's inspiring as well. Everybody, the whole ensemble, the writing, the creation of this show is really expanding this space where we can talk about these things and where people can be inspired and have the confidence to live their lives authentically."
