Get to Know Simone Ashley, Bridgerton's New Leading Lady

5 Things to Know About Simone Ashley, Bridgerton's New Leading Lady

We're still waiting for an official release date for season two of Bridgerton, but luckily, the beloved Netflix series has given us something to hold us over until then: a new leading lady! Back in February, it was announced that Simone Ashley had joined the cast as Kate Sharma, Anthony Bridgerton's (Jonathan Bailey) love interest, and on April 30, we got a first look at Kate's debut as she and Jonathan were spotted on set.

"Simone Ashley is Miss Kate Sharma," Shondaland tweeted. "Newly arrived in London, Kate is a smart, headstrong young woman who suffers no fools — Anthony Bridgerton very much included." We're actually surprised Lady Whistledown didn't figure this one out sooner! As we wait for more details about the upcoming season, get to know more about Bridgerton's latest addition ahead. Also, does this mean Anthony has finally moved on from Siena Rosso?
