India Amarteifo shines as Queen Charlotte
American streaming platform Netflix has announced on Friday that Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story will be the title of the prequel spin-off to its hit Regency romance. With the news coming in, we also got a glimpse of her royal highness: India Amarteifio who will hold court as the younger version of the title character played by Golda Rosheuvel in Bridgerton proper.
The series will chronicle “Queen Charlotte’s rise to prominence and power,” as per a press release, it “tells the story of how the young Queen’s marriage to King George sparked both a great love story and a societal shift, creating the world of the Ton inherited by the characters in Bridgerton.”
“We have this wonderful kind of tag team where we high five each other, and the baton is passed on, which I think is a really beautiful metaphor for the older and younger. It’s really cool. I love it.” Rosheuvel said on her working equation with Amarteifio.
On the other hand, Andoh has claimed “Can I just say as a compliment to you both, there is something so particular and fabulous about your whiplash, heartfelt, witty, sharp Queen Charlotte.”
“India has absolutely grabbed all of that and made her own and run with it. When I look at India, I see Golda and see young Charlotte become older Charlotte and it’s a beautiful thing.” added Andoh.
“Many viewers had never known the story of Queen Charlotte before Bridgerton brought her to the world, and I’m thrilled this new series will further expand her story and the world of Bridgerton,” Netflix’s Head of Global TV Bela Bajaria said in a statement at the time.
