Bridgerton's Claudia Jessie Says Her Character Will Be Pissed Over This in Season Two

Claudia Jessie is opening up about Bridgerton‘s upcoming season two and how her character, Eloise, will handle being introduced to society, like her older sister Daphne was in the first.

Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar, Claudia revealed that Eloise is “going to shake things up and basically take the piss out of it.”

“I’m excited for that,” she added, and explained her hopes for the middle child of the family: “I would really love to see Eloise just really own every space she’s in. She had this vision that her sister was the perfect debutante, and then Eloise comes sort of like crashing through with her own personality.”

For season two, Claudia says, she’ll be “given a little bit more freedom to be herself, with Phoebe [Dynevor, as Daphne] being in a high-status relationship, and it gives Eloise a bit more room to have her own space.”

Claudia also revealed that she thinks Eloise would be “pissed” when she finds out who Lady Whistledown is.

“I just can’t imagine what that is going to be like,” she mused. “That’s such a shock to a friendship. You have this woman, this character, this mysterious scribbler that Eloise is basically a bit in love with, and kinda wants to be her best mate — has been lying to her, writing about her family, and causing scandals. To me, that’s the most compelling thing in the world.”

Previously, Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope, opened up about her real life friendship with Claudia.
