Phoebe Dynevor Withdraws from Season 3 of Netflix’s ‘Bridgerton’

The third season of Netflix’s Bridgerton will be missing a key player with the decision of Phoebe Dynevor not to continue her role as Daphne. The British-born actor had originated the role in the first installment of the series, starring with Regé-Jean Page.

Still, Dynevor left open the possibility that she might return to the role in the future, declaring “Sadly not in season 3. Potentially in the future. But season 3, I’m just excited to watch as a viewer.”

Dynevor was quoted in Variety as saying: “Well I did my two seasons. I’ve done what I wanted to do with that character and she had a great arc. If they ask me back in the future, who knows?”

The upcoming third season of Bridgerton is based on Romancing Mister Bridgerton, the fourth book in the series by author Julia Quinn. According to the show’s official summary, “Season 3 finds Penelope Featherington as she’s finally given up her crush on Colin Bridgerton after hearing him disparage her to his friends last season. … Instead, she’s focusing on finding a husband who will respect her independence so she may continue her double life as Lady Whistledown, away from her mother and sisters. Due to her lack of confidence, however, her search doesn’t go so well.”

Bridgerton showrunner Jess Brownell had earlier described the producers’ intentions when she told Variety: “Because we’ve been watching both of these actors on our screens since Season 1, we’ve already invested in them a little bit. We know who they are as people. I feel like, especially in the last season, there are these moments of tension between them where it’s like, Colin walks up to the line of almost realizing that Penelope has feelings for him but doesn’t quite get there. Instead of treading water on that dynamic, we wanted to push it into their season. It really felt like the perfect moment to tee it up.”

Meanwhile, Dynevor will be appearing in another Netflix feature, Fair Play, an erotic thriller in which she co-stars with Alden Ehrenreich. No release date has yet been announced.
