Right on the heels of Bridgerton’s official season 3 filming announcement came the news that three new cast members will join the Ton for the upcoming social season.
The plot of Season 3 seems to be veering wildly from the books, so we are excited to see the character that these three new cast members will play. Unfortunately, they are not based on anyone in the book, so we only know what Netflix and Shondaland have shared with us!
Daniel Francis is set to play Marcus Anderson, who is described as a newcomer”whose charismatic presence draws as much attention — especially from certain matriarchs — as it does ire.”
Sounds like something to swoon over!
Francis is a classically trained actor whose credits range from “Once Upon a Time” and “Stay Close.”
According to IMDB: Passionate, but shy as a youth, Daniel found freedom of expression on stage while attending the Pyramid Young Initiative in Clapham, London. At 17 he was given a life-changing introduction to an early mentor, theatre director Sacha Wares and was subsequently cast in her production of Bintou at the Arcola Theatre.
Daniel went on to train at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA), and upon graduation, went straight to the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) to work alongside award winning actor John Lithgow.
