Kim Kardashian was surprised to learn that some of the actors in Bridgerton used her famous family as inspiration for their characters.
Kardashian recently became a fan of the hit drama Netflix, as she posted in her Instagram Stories last week. On Tuesday April 20, actress Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope Featherington on the series, tweeted the reality star and said she helped inspire the actors who represented the Featherington family.
“As world number one @Bridgerton stan, @KimKardashian knows the Kardashians have been a huge inspiration to the Featheringtons and we talked about them all the time during our fittings? Because I feel like she should know, “Coughlan tweeted.
Kardashian was “panicking” after Coughlan’s tweet was sent to her in a Bridgerton group chat she was a part of.
“Can I please come for a fitting?!?!” Kardashian pleaded. “It would be my whole life !!!!!! I love you Lady W !!!”
Coughlan enthusiastically accepted his request and revealed that Kardashian’s ties to the show extended to the show’s costume department as well.
“Did you know Mr. Pearl made your corset for the Met Gala and the next one he made was mine for Bridgerton?” You’ve been a part of Bridgerton’s world for longer than you think, ”said Coughlan.
“OMG I’m going to pass out !!!!!! Does that make me an Honorary Duchess in Bridgerton?!?!?!? I’m the Corset Queen,” Kardashian said.
Coughlan happily accepted her call and dubbed her the Duchess Kardashian of Calabasas and “the real matchless one of the season”.
There aren’t many details on the show’s next season, however, most of the core cast will be returning. Unfortunately, Regé-Jean Page who played the Duke of Hastings will not return for the second season of the show.
Filming for Bridgerton Season 2 will begin in the spring of 2021.
