Ashley is very familiar with stepping into a beloved franchise and dealing with the high expectations of fans. Not just any actor could take the lead role Bridgerton another season and get everyone to shut up about the loss of the season Regé-Jean Page (at least for a while).
“I’d like to think I’m not a very fearful person,” she shared Glamour ahead of the season two premiere in March 2022. “We’re in a business where as an artist you can feel certain pressures at times, but we don’t perform heart surgeries or cure diseases or live dependent on us. It is real pressure. When I put it into perspective, I’m like, “That’s good.”
Although we can expect to see Ashley along Bridgerton season threethe actor also told Glamour that he misses something unexpected. “I’m interested in culturally specific roles, but also very much in non-culturally specific roles,” he said. “I want to go for roles that anyone can relate to. I want to be seen for talent. I think I’m very smart and I have great ideas and I want to be seen for that, not for what I look like.
The actor says he has been offered “a lot of Bollywood stuff” but has turned down roles. “I said no much because I want to change it,” he says. “I want to take on roles that people might not expect me to play.”
