Charithra Chandran Joins The Cast Of Bridgerton! Checkout The Deets Inside!!
The 24-year-old actress sacked off a corporate job to star in the highly-anticipated second season of Netflix’s steamy series titled, “Bridgerton”. It’s a salacious period drama. With its release date imminent, here’s the inside on her character, Edwina Sharma.
As Netflix announced the release date of Bridgerton Season 2, the departure of Regé-Jean Page has broken several hearts. The audience would see lot of new faces in this season and moreover an Indian face has caught the attention of audience. The Indian face who is playing the role of Edwina Sharma is none other than Charithra Chandran.
Born in 1997, Charithra Chandran grew up in Oxford City in England. Although she grew up in England, the actress is deeply rooted in Indian and Tamil culture. The actress pursued her bachelor’s in Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford University.
In 2015, after she completed her schooling at Oxford High School GDST, she served as a Parliamentary Assistant at the House of Commons from September to December 2015.
“I’d do more plays and rehearsals than studying, like one every month,” says Chandran, who is now based in the British capital. Adding to her statement, the actor said, “It was the best time of my life. I met the most wonderful, creative, open-minded people and it was where I was most happy, but in the back of my mind, I never thought it was a possibility for me to do it as a job.”
Taking a gap year before settling into an 80-hour week job, Chandran decided to enhance her acting skills by performing in plays and short films for a while.
As for Bridgerton, the Sharma family has more than what it takes to pick up where the first season left. The second season promises to bring plenty of drama to Bridgerton’s ensemble cast of not-so-well-to-do and gossip-hungry characters.
Taking the lead will be Sex Education’s Simone Ashley, who plays the role of Edwina’s big sister Kate Sharma. Many might ask that if they have seen Chandran before and to those the answer is yes. We have seen her before in Alex Rider Season 2. In this web show, Charithra had played the role of Sabina Pleasance. The series was a British spy thriller series that premiered on December 3 on Amazon Prime Video and IMDb TV in a lot of countries.
She was also seen in the TV series Pillow Talk, where she played the role of Stella and with Bridgerton Season 2, she will become a household name in no time.
