Dodd also says that when she dove into the “Bridgerton” novels, she went to the book centred on Francesca first, “because I didn’t know what I’d got myself in for, but I needed to read that as soon as possible. It’s such a beautiful book and she’s such a beautiful character. I can’t really believe that I get to play her.”

She adds, “I know how people feel about her as well, so I’m going to do my best.”
