“Bridgerton’ is actually delivering on changing the bar, and the standard, of representation.”

“Something about the genre of period drama feels so quintessentially British.”

“I think there’s just incredible amounts of labeling generally and as woman, as a man, as a gay man, as a mother, as a father, there’s just a sense that there’s opinions everywhere.”

“I think all teachers are basically modern-day heroes.”

“Music is the always first step and key for a vibey start to the day.”

“Yes, I’m looking forward to gay actors playing gay parts, but for me it’s so important that everyone at home can see a bit of themselves on screen, to allow them to feel heard and seen, and also allow them to have aspirations.”

“It’s funny, because even though Bridgerton’ is obviously a period drama, Anthony’s story is quite modern in the sense that he’s reached a point where he genuinely believes that love will never happen for him.”

“Good actors can do anything, and there’ll be amazing writers who are willing to write for everyone.”

“My understanding of romance novels was that it was on the beach with a glass of rose.”

“You can love a play and character and can be the right person to tell that story. But if you don’t click with the other people in the play, it won’t work.”

“People say, ‘You’ve got to challenge yourself,’ and I don’t think there’s anything better than going, ‘I don’t understand how this thing is possible.’ Fear of the unknown is always the thing in life.”

“There’s a real pace to New York life which in reality London doesn’t match.”

Jonathan Bailey is handsome, brave, and never afraid to speak up for himself. Also, he is a very good actor, isn’t he?
