Bridgerton star Nicola Coughlan misses premiere after being crushed by Miss Rona

Irish actress Nicola Coughlan was forced to miss the Bridgerton premiere after testing positive for Covid-19.

The Galway native, who plays Penelope Featherton on the hit Netflix drama, revealed she was “heartbroken” to miss the UK premiere of season two on Tuesday night ahead of its Friday launch.

She posted a picture of herself in a white robe with a towel around her head on Instagram and said: “My Bridgerton premiere look – a little different than expected.”

“Well I’m devastated by Miss Rona and I’m missing our first premiere – heartbroken is an understatement but I’m sending so much love to my beautiful castmates who I hope have the best night.”

The 35-year-old became a household name for her role as Clare Devlin in Derry Girls. Created by Lisa McGee, the coming-of-age program follows a group of teenagers growing up in Northern Ireland in the 1990s.

The series’ third and final season is set to return soon after Channel 4 wowed fans and got its first look on St Patrick’s Day.

Her co-star and onscreen sibling Charithra Chandran wore a flowy white off the shoulder dress with a red floral print by Carolina Herrera.

Series producer Shonda Rhimes wore a sparkling scarlet dress with puff sleeves and carried a small silver handbag.

Adjoa Andoh, who plays Lady Danbury, was absent from the premiere, as was Ruth Gemmell, best known as the Bridgerton family matriarch, Lady Violet.

The number of cast members missing from the premiere speaks to the mysterious nature of Lady Whistledown.

The new season, produced by Shonda Rhimes, will be released on the streaming site on March 25th.
