Simone Ashley, who plays the character of Kate Sharma in Netflix’s sensational drama series Bridgerton, based on the popular book series of the same name by Julia Quinn, has said that she loves being a part of the show but there is one aspect of filming it that she absolutely abhors.

It is no secret that Bridgerton is a historical drama, which means all the actors are required to dress in resplendently intricate and, at times, heavy costumes to add a touch of royalty to their characters. Ashley found this aspect of filming the show nearly unbearable.

Talking to The Sunday Times, she said, “Corsets push everything down to the bottom of your stomach. That means when you take them off, you have got a little bump. I hated wearing those corsets filming Bridgerton.

She further added, “I had a lot of pain with the corset. I think I tore my shoulder at one point! I realized when you wear the corset, you just do not eat. It changes your body. I had a smaller waist very momentarily. Then the minute you stop wearing it, you are just back to how your body is.”

Much to her delight, Ashley was able to go corset free for the much-anticipated season 3 of the show. She explained, “Luckily, we are allowed to wear bras now instead, and that has changed everything for me. I can do a 12-hour day and feel comfortable.”

Fans can brace themselves to see a lot of changes in Bridgerton 3. Ashley’s Kate won’t be a main character in, but they will see how she and Anthony are settling into married life. Sharing her excitement, she recently told Grazia in an interview, “I am really excited. “What’s so special about Bridgeton is that every season there is a new focus on a new love story. So in season three, I am really excited for everyone to see Penelope and Collin’s love story unfold because it has been a long time coming. But I am equally as excited for everyone to see Kate settling into the Bridgerton family and a little bit more of her backstory as well.”
