See the Queen Charlotte Cast Compared to Original Bridgerton Cast
The casting director for Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story had a major task: To find the younger versions of the beloved characters of Queen Charlotte, Lady Danbury, and Violet Bridgerton. But they delivered, and the casting was so spot-on that it truly feels like the actors are playing the same character.
The lead, Queen Charlotte, is played by India Amarteifio and Golda Rosheuvel. "India [Amarteifio] worked really hard to embody the characteristics of Golda Rosheuvel, so that you could understand where Golda started out with her movements and how she became Queen Charlotte in Bridgerton," Shonda Rhimes told Netflix. "She found Golda’s cadence, too. But she also did all kinds of things that I never really thought of for the character of Queen Charlotte."
Here, see the young Queen Charlotte cast compares to their grown-up Bridgerton counterparts (and all the older versions of the characters also appear in the prequel):
