Bridgerton season 2 official trailer from Netflix

It was 20 minutes after our interview was scheduled to begin, the first of the day, and Ruby Barker was nowhere to be found. Where could the Bridgerton star be? If Lady Whistledown had given this interview, her stock of rumors would have been spinning by now. A scandalous liaison to a society? An overnight escape?

In fact, the truth is less worthy than Netflix. The deeply apologetic Ruby finally stepped in, trying to make her way past the vast grounds of the stately Beaverbrook Hotel that received us.

“My back is gone,” she explained, crept down onto the old suite sofa. “I slept by mistake last night. I woke up this morning and I was like Regina George from Mean Girls after she got hit by a bus. ”

It’s not quite the entrance to the charm we’ve come to expect from Ruby, or rather, her character Bridgerton. As Marina Thompson, she was a brilliant actress hiding her pregnancy under her corset in season one, and we’ll be waiting for her next chapter when the Netflix blockbuster returns. back on Friday.

Hopefully we can find out if Marina is happily ever after – this might help us get over the disappointment of Regé-Jean Page, aka the Duke of Hastings, not returning. back for part two.

In addition to Bridgerton, Ruby has been revealed as the new Müllerlight girl, taking on the task of licking yogurt from the likes of Nicole Scherzinger. The 25-year-old actress is also outspoken about her personal dress dramas and is proud to break beauty taboos along the way.

Hi Ruby. Bridgerton is very fastidious. How would you feel if it was your turn to be splashed on a four-poster?

I do not know. It completely depends on the context and if I feel it’s necessary. Doing simulated sex is not something I like “Uh, NO!” If I feel it’s reasonable and it’s something I want to do and feel comfortable with, then OK. But it must have the right reasons. I have no interest in tilling someone while she’s just trying to eat beans for dinner!

Rather! The clothes are very tight and uncomfortable?

They’re made to measure so there’s an element of comfort, but I have to say the biggest issue for me was how hot that summer was. It’s completely roasted and obviously I have these normal worries [about filming] And when I’m nervous, I sweat.

That’s completely natural, of course, but what makes it worse is realizing that this really doesn’t sound like a normal amount of sweat. I have something called hyperhidrosis, so I worry about that and I sweat more. I really started to sweat while wearing Bridgerton’s costume, so for the whole show, I had to line my armpits with a sanitary towel so I wouldn’t ruin the outfit. That’s how bad that is.

Have you had hyperhidrosis for a long time?

When I was at school, I realized that I was a rather nervous, sweaty kid, but it became more and more extreme as my anxiety and stress levels soar. Sweating is completely normal but I think it’s something we can all feel embarrassed about, especially as women.

I want to tell the world that I’m a sweaty Betty. Confirmed!

Have you considered any treatments for this condition?

I tried Botox in my armpits. One time I had a really important business meeting at a nice restaurant and when I walked into the bathroom I looked in the mirror and there were literally patches of sweat running down my hips.

That’s when I thought, “I need to do something about this,” so I go to Harley Street and get it done. Yes, it works, but I didn’t have it because it was too expensive.

Did you spend a lot of time in the makeup chair during a day of filming as Marina?

Yes, hours – at least two or three hours. I had to tattoo a lot of times and it took about 40 minutes. It’s funny – I’m playing this Regency girl and I’ve hidden all these tunics. Sometimes I manage to get away with it by wearing long princess gloves for all those dance scenes.

Is there anything forbidden, beauty, when you are filming a historical drama?

Basically, we were just told to keep our faces bare and not mess up our eyebrows or anything. I still haven’t done my brows since the real Bridgerton.

I just let them go wild. My advice is never let anyone touch your eyebrows unless you really trust them. A couple of years ago, I asked for a little more trim and came out with pencil-thin brows. Oh God why am I crying. They took too long to grow back.

Are you careful with your skin because of a lot of makeup on the screen?

It is quite sensitive. I try not to wear makeup when I’m not at work. I would say the most important thing is that I have had a skin care routine since I was 11 years old. I cleanse, brighten, and moisturize, and I exfoliate at least once a week.

Do you think the beauty industry is doing a better job of catering to diversity right now?

Yes, Rihanna completely changed the game with Fenty – amazing. But MAC has always been great. It always comes in realistic colors for different skin tones. I was just introduced to the most amazing black makeup artist, Pat McGrath. She provided a lot of the makeup for Bridgerton series two.

You are the new face of Müllerlight. Does that match your attitude towards health?

It has. I do my best to eat healthy, but there are also things I like. I love the Greek Lemon fragrance. I try to be an active person. I really enjoy exercising – climbing, climbing and the like. I’m not The Rock by any means of the imagination, but I’m working towards it [laughs].

Is there a specific regimen you follow for filming health?

Because dresses are made to measure, a lot of time is spent making a dress fit your body, so you must try to stay the same size. [for that series]. However, there is no way for me to fit into my season one content now.

I’ve put on weight since then, but I think that’s totally fine and that suits my Marina character because she’s pregnant. She will gain healthy weight and I am much happier with my current size. I struggled a bit during the lockdown, then I had to really push myself to get active.
