the fans of bridgerton were surprised this Thursday (12) with the news of a change in the cast of the series. according to deadlineactress Ruby Strokes, who plays Francesca Bridgerton, is leaving the cast of the production and will be replaced by Hannah Dodd (Anatomy of a Scandal).
The change came about due to a scheduling conflict for the Strokes, who is due to dedicate himself to another Netflix production, Lockwood & Co. It is worth remembering that the character was already quite removed from the plot during the second season.
