Bridgerton's Luke Newton Opens Up About The Challenges of Having Dyslexia

Luke Newton stars as the youngest Bridgerton brother, Colin, on the popular Netflix series, and in a new interview, is opening up about how he combats his dyslexia with the show.

The 24-year-old actor spoke to Page Six and shared that he had almost given up hope on being a working actor because of his diagnosis.

“It’s definitely difficult,” he explained. “If I get sent a project [and asked], ‘Can you read this script and tape for it over the weekend?’ It would take me four days, while other actors can smash through a script in a couple of hours. It’s definitely challenging for me.”

Luke added that when the Bridgerton script came to him, he couldn’t put it down.

“This was one of the first times that I just couldn’t put a script down,” he says.

He also mentioned what his favorite scenes to film were and they included food!

“To be honest. I enjoy the dinner scenes more than anything, just being fed for the day,” Luke admits. “Being served, what I like to think of as a Sunday roast and we filmed it for a whole day was not the worst thing for me to film.”

Luke‘s Colin Bridgerton is expected to have a bigger role in season two of the series, but not as big as this other Bridgerton guy.
