Uh, yeah. It sounds like it belongs on Bridgerton.
Could be, right?
Fill in the blank. I love when my girlfriend…
I love when my girlfriend laughs and dances to TV theme songs. It’s my favorite thing. She dances in the lift all the time. I put one on my Instagram recently. She just likes to dance in public places when no one can see. That’s what’s quite fun about it. I’m like, “Quick, I need to film this because this is a memory.” Yeah, dancing to TV theme tunes. It’s hilarious.
That’s where the shared sense of humor comes in, right?
Yeah, totally. We laugh at exactly the same things. It’s mad.
Since Bridgerton is such a massively popular show, what’s the most interesting person or comment to slide into your DMs?
Oh, gosh. So, Colin is known in the books as a foodie. He loves his food. We didn’t really explore that too much in season one, so I took it upon myself in season two to do it myself. Anytime there was a scene in the drawing room, anytime there’s a scene where there was food, I said to the team, “Can I just have a plate be stacked up with as many biscuits and sandwiches as you can?” I wanted him to look like a hungry boy.
And then I got the strangest DM, just a really blunt comment of, “Send me a video of you eating,” or something like that. I didn’t respond or open it, but it was an interesting one. I understood why. I wasn’t like, “This is creepy or weird.” I was like, “You are a Colin fan!” I relate to that side of him. I also love my food.
Yeah, out of context that would take on a whole other meaning. Last question: With seasons three and four already confirmed, where would you like to see Colin go? Is there anything you’d like to see him do next?
I’d like to see him settle, even if it’s just for a moment, even if it’s for like one or two episodes. I feel like Colin—even just in the family environment and dynamic—is unsettled by something the majority of the time. There was the love story that he was keeping from everyone last year and everything that was playing on his mind at that point. This year it’s him not having a purpose and feeling kind of down and not having something that he’s passionate about. You know when you watch shows, particularly shows that go for years and years and years, and you are just like…I’m a big fan of The Walking Dead, and there was a point when they all were settled and it really made me go, “Oh, my God, this is so nice.” Because they’ve been running away from those zombies for years, and now they finally get to have a bit of enjoyment.
So, I guess it’s that. I guess it would be a ball where he feels great, he feels confident, and he’s found himself a bit. That’s what I’d love. But then, if that happens, that’s almost the end of his story. So I’m happy to wait for as long or as soon as they want that to happen.
