No offense to some, the author of the novels on which The Bridgertons Chronicle is based is very happy with the cast of the series.
Modern and feminist era series freshly landed on Netflix, The Chronicle of Bridgerton has been talked about a lot since her release, whether to receive compliments or that some details are questioned. Many spectators indeed criticize the cast, in particular the fact of having chosen an actress of color, Golda Rosheuvel , to play as Queen Charlotte. A sovereign who, you understood, should be white according to them. However, this decision is far from being questioned by Julia Quinn, the author of the novels from which the series is inspired. In an interview with the Times British, she not only defended the casting of Golda Rosheuvel, but also makes some historical reminders.
“Many historians believe that she had African origins. This is a debatable point, and not being able to do a DNA test, I do not think he there will never be a definitive answer. “ she declared. She also clarified that the cast of actors of color was “a conscious choice and not made blind” . In fact, series creator Chris Van Dusen, who recently commented on a controversial scene from The Bridgertons Chronicle , wanted the show to reflect our modern times, without necessarily being historically accurate. However, it is not far from the truth, since the existence of a black nobility has already been confirmed by many historians. It remains to be seen if their life was as frivolous and simple as that of the heroes of the series.
