Luke Thompson teases his 'amazing' new Bridgerton scene partner

Yes, Bridgerton is famous for its heart-wrenching romance. But as Season 2 proved, many of the pairings at the end of the game stem from, or are inspired by, the characters' relationships with their siblings.

Benedict and Héloïse have long had a special bond, bonded over their disinterest in doing what others expected of them. In a recent chat with Bustle, Luke Thompson and Claudia Jessee proved that brotherly love extends beyond the screen, too.

Ahead of the Bridgerton Season 3 premiere, Thompson and Jesse asked each other some questions to see how well they know each other. In the end, Jesse won the contest—correctly guessing many answers, from Thompson's snack of choice (an omelet!) to his favorite scene to film in the latest episode.

"I feel like it might have something to do with Hannah (new)," Jesse said, with Thompson confirming that "all of (his) scenes" with his newest co-star stand out in season three. Astonishing. "

Mrs Tilly Arnold in Bridgerton

While Thompson is careful not to reveal too much - Lady Whistledown is the only one who can tell everything - there have been hints about New's character as far back as 2022 when she was first cast.

According to Deadline , she plays Mrs. Tilly Arnold, a "seditious widow." "She was widowed at an early age and enjoys the privileges and power that come with being in charge of her ex-husband's estate. She is able to live her own life on her own terms, with financial independence and sexual freedom."

Fans of the Julia Quinn romance series know that Benedict's love rival in the Bridgerton books was a very different Cinderella-esque character named Sophie. So it will be interesting to see how this newcomer affects his long-term love life.

New teased on Instagram that Tilly is a "rich woman who takes her business seriously, reveling in her freedom and knowing how to find joy and authenticity in every connection." In a way, she seems to have a connection with Benedick. resonates with Te’s own independent tendencies.

"She taught me a thing or two and she was a pure joy to play with," New added.
