One “Black Sails” star is heading to “Bridgerton.”
On Friday, Deadline announced Hannah New would be joining the hit Netflix period drama.
New will be playing the role of Lady Tilley Arnold.
Arnold is described as a woman who was widowed at an early age.
She has a fiery personality and runs her former husband’s estate herself.
She is reported to enjoy a large amount of financial security and “sexual freedom.”
Fans speculate that she might end up in a romance with an already established character.
Almost exactly one month ago, New teased a “secret project” she was filming in London.
She has yet to confirm the news herself, but it sounds like that secret project might just be “Bridgerton.”
