Rupert Evans (The Man in High Castle, Charmed) will play Edmund Bridgerton. Edmund is a loving and devoted husband, whose true love match with Violet Bridgerton gave them eight perfect children.
He’s also an endlessly patient and kind father, who takes special pride in guiding his eldest son Anthony through life.
Based on Julia Quinn’s best-selling series of novels, BRIDGERTON, is set in the sexy, lavish and competitive world of Regency London high society.
From the glittering ballrooms of Mayfair to the aristocratic palaces of Park Lane and beyond, the series unveils a seductive, sumptuous world replete with intricate rules and dramatic power struggles, where no one is truly ever on steady ground. At the heart of the show is the powerful Bridgerton family. Comprised of eight close-knit siblings, this funny, witty, daring and clever group must navigate the upper ten thousand’s marriage mart in search of romance, adventure and love.
