Bridgerton season 3 part 1 is coming to Netflix on May 16, and we’ve been counting down the days. We’re so close to seeing the hit period drama back on our screens and a new love story unfold.
In the upcoming season, the story centers around the dashing and adventurous Colin Bridgerton and his love story with Penelope Featherington aka Lady Whistledown. After practically being rejected by Colin in the season 2 finale, Penelope is ready to move on from him and make her debut on the competitive marriage market in Regency-era London.
Colin returns from his summer travels to find him and Penelope at odds, but he refuses to give up on their friendship. So, he decides to assist her in her quest to find love. But as Colin mentors Penelope, things become complicated when he starts to develop romantic feelings for her. Will Penelope give Colin a chance or will she tell him it's too late?
While we wait for the third season to make its arrival on Netflix, we’ve been searching for everything there is to know about the series as a whole. While searching for new information about Bridgerton, we’ve noticed that many people want to know the Bridgerton cast ages. That’s no problem for us! Read on to learn the ages of the actors who play some of your favorite characters in the series.
How old is the Bridgerton cast?
Get ready to be shocked when you find out the real ages of the cast. Many of the cast members are older than the characters they play. It’s only right that we begin with the elite Bridgerton family.
Phoebe Dynevor age
In the period drama, Phoebe Dynevor plays Daphne Bridgerton/Basset (Duchess of Hastings). When Daphne debuted in the marriage mart in season 1, she was around 21 years old. However, Phoebe was actually 24 years old at the time of filming the first season. She is currently 28 years old as of February 2024, and her zodiac sign is Aries. She was born on April 17, 1995, in Manchester, England to Coronation Street actress Sally Dynevor and Emmerdale screenwriter Tim Dynevor.
Unfortunately, Phoebe will not be appearing in Bridgerton season 3, but there is a possibility that she could come back for a future season. We recommend checking out her other projects like the movies Bank of Dave and Fair Play, which are both streaming on Netflix. You can also see her next in a spy thriller flick called The Inheritance and a thriller film titled Anniversary.
Jonathan Bailey age
Jonathan Bailey portrays the endlessly charming Viscount Anthony Bridgerton. In season 2, the eldest Bridgerton is around 31 years old, but Jonathan is actually 35 years old in real life. Like Dynevor, his birthday is in April. He was born on Apil 25, 1988, in Wallingford, Oxfordshire, England, making his zodiac sign Taurus.
Unlike Dynevor, he will be reprising his role as Anthony Bridgerton in the third season. So that's something to look forward to. But while you wait for Bridgerton season 3, we recommend checking out the historical romance miniseries Fellow Travelers. Jonathan stars in the show as Timothy "Tim" Laughlin. Besides Bridgerton season 3, we'll see him next in the upcoming musical films Wicked: Part One and Wicked: Part Two.
Claudia Jessie age
We all know Claudia as the quick-witted and rebellious Eloise Bridgerton. Eloise is around 18 years old in the second season, but Claudia is actually 34 years old in real life.

She was reportedly born on Oct. 30, 1989, in Birmingham, England, and her zodiac sign is Scorpio.
Some of her other acting work besides Bridgerton was in the TV shows WPC 56, Line of Duty, Porters, Vanity Fair, Defending the Guilty and Bali 2002. Besides Bridgerton season 3, she'll appear next in the upcoming Netflix drama miniseries Toxic Town, which is expected to come out sometime in 2024.
Luke Newton age
Luke portrays the swoon-worthy Colin Bridgerton. Colin is around 23 years old in the second season. However, Luke is 31 years old in real life.

Other than the third season of the hit period drama series, we'll see Luke next in an upcoming animated film called Viana the Legend of the Golden Hearts. He'll be voicing the character, Thomas. It's expected to come out sometime in 2025.

Simone Ashley was a new cast addition to the series in season 2. She plays Kate Sharma, a love interest of Anthony, who eventually ends up as his wife.
