Kim Kardashian fangirls over Netflix’s Bridgerton, says ‘freaking out’ after finding Featheringtons being inspired by her family


Kim Kardashian West may have been a bit late to join the Bridgerton fan community, but she’s all in now. She recently shared on social media that she binge-watched the popular Netflix series set in the Regency Era, England. Like several others, she loved it. So she kind of had a fangirl moment when Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope Featherington on the show, revealed that there was a Kardashian connection.

Nicola recently tweeted about how Kim and her family were "a massive inspiration for the Featheringtons," saying that the cast talked about the Kardashians during fittings as well. Nicola’s tweet sent Kim into a frenzy and she retweeted Nicola and said she was “freaking out.”

The Bridgerton actress signed off on that and revealed another “Bridgerton/Kardashian” connection and went on further to invite Kim for a fitting on the sets. We wonder if there would be a cameo by Kim on the subsequent seasons of the series. 

Bridgerton is based on Julia Quinn’s novels and is produced by Shonda Rhimes and created and directed by Chris van Dusen. It has broken ground on the basis that it does not adhere to historical racial bias and stars several coloured actors in key roles. It has been renewed for season 2, 3 and 4 by Netflix.
