Simone in Variety’s 10 Brits to Watch for 2021: A Celebration of Talent
Tumblr media
The second season of Shonda Rhimes’ Regency drama introduces a new character named Kate Sharma, played by Ashley. The actor, who is of Indian descent, was previously in Netflix’s “Sex Education” and says she had a “blink and you’ll miss me” role in “Straight Outta Compton.”
She credits Chris Van Dusen, “our amazing showrunner,” for looking for diversity in the “Bridgerton” writers’ room and hiring Geetika Lizardi, who is also of Indian descent and pushed for a South Asian to join the cast. The series diverts from the books in many ways, not least by having a multi-ethnic cast, which Ashley is hopeful might be the path for entertainment in general.
When she is not shooting, she is taking riding lessons, but cannot divulge if it is sidesaddle. “I don’t know if I’m allowed to say.” One detail she is permitted to share is they are shooting until the end of November. She is a fan of the books: “I think Julia Quinn has created such an interesting world, especially the second book. The relationship between Kate [her character] and Anthony [Bridgerton] is so interesting and it really grips you because it’s a relationship we can all relate to. And what the show has done is lift those words off the page and created this colorful, wonderful world.”
Besides her acting, Ashley is also a singer. She grew up singing classical music, including Italian opera, and learned musical theater and the piano. In pursuit of her acting career she left home at age 15 but because she couldn’t travel with her piano she learned to play the more portable ukulele. She likes to listen to Alicia Keys, pop and jazz and also composes her own tunes. Right now she is concentrating on “Bridgerton” and not looking at anything else ahead. “It’s such a down to earth set to be on, in contrast to how hugely successful the show has been received,” Ashley says.
Influences: Uma Thurman, Miley Cyrus, “my mum”

‘Bridgerton’: Simone Ashley Lands Female Lead In Season 2 Of Netflix Hit From Shondaland
Simone Ashley (Because the Night, Sex Education) has been tapped as the female lead opposite Jonathan Bailey in Season 2 of Netflix and Shondaland’s hugely popular Regency-era period drama series Bridgerton, based on Julia Quinn’s romance novels.
Ashley will play Anthony’s romantic interest, Kate Sharma. Newly arrived in London, Kate is a smart, headstrong young woman who suffers no fools — Anthony Bridgerton (Bailey) very much included.
In Season 2, Bridgerton continues to break conventions on race. Anthony’s love interest (named Kate Sheffield in Quinn’s novel) and her family were conceived by the series’ creative team as being of Indian descent in a continuation of the reimagined world created in Season 1, which included several major Black characters, including the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page), Lady Danbury (Adjoa Andoh) and Queen Charlotte (Golda Rosheuvel).
