With nearly 27 years under his belt as a working actor, 34-year-old Brit Jonathan Bailey is finally coming into his due. WHILE most of his roles have been in theater, Bailey’s turn in the Powerhouse Netflix series Bridgerton has brought him searing attention, especially when his Lord Anthony moved into a starring role in the second series of Netflix’s most-watched English show in history. But he had been treading the boards since childhood, working with the Royal Shakespeare Academy since the age of seven and quietly moving up through the ranks to star in King Lear opposite Ian McKellen and the West End’s revisioning of Stephen Sondheim’s classic Company, for which he earned an Olivier Award.
Known for his light-hearted, often cheeky personality as well as his smoldering good looks and unabashed talent, look for much more to come from Bailey. He’s got a television series and film in pre-production, as well as the third installment of Bridgerton in the works, making for a bright future indeed, and a career that will continue to soar.
Bridgerton is actually delivering on changing the bar, and the standard of representation.
