Bridgerton’s Luke Newton Pranks Nicola Coughlan in Hilarious Video

Bridgerton actors Luke Newton and Nicola Coughlan are captivating fans both on and off-screen.

With anticipation building for the second half of Bridgerton season 3, Newton, who portrays Colin Bridgerton, has been sharing new behind-the-scenes content, including a prank video featuring his costar.

Newton posted a video on Instagram on June 3, in which he scares Coughlan, who plays Penelope Featherington, by jumping out from under a makeup table in the Bridgerton hair and makeup room. Coughlan’s reaction captured in the video shows her screaming and then laughing as she exits the room, with Newton exclaiming, “Payback!”

Coughlan, 37, responded with, “Hahahhahahaa,” under Newton’s post, which also included photos of the two actors in their Regency-era costumes.

Bridgerton Season 3 Behind-the-Scenes

On June 2, Coughlan shared her own set of candid photos from the Bridgerton season 3 set. Her post featured Newton, 31, sitting inside a carriage from the end of episode 4, along with images of fellow cast members Simone Ashley, Claudia Jessie, Luke Thompson, and Jessica Madsen.

Plot Developments in Bridgerton Season 3

The first half of Bridgerton season 3, which premiered on Netflix last month, concluded with Colin proposing to Penelope, signaling the start of their romance. However, upcoming episodes hint at complications arising from Penelope’s secret identity as Lady Whistledown, the ton’s gossip writer.

A teaser released on June 3 shows Penelope’s estranged friend, Eloise, urging her to come clean to Colin, alongside Colin noticing ink blots on Penelope’s hands — indicative of her hidden role as Lady Whistledown.

On-Screen and Off-Screen Chemistry

Newton and Coughlan’s friendship has been a highlight for fans since the show’s debut in 2020. Their off-screen camaraderie has translated into their on-screen romance, making their performance more authentic. In an interview with Teen Vogue, Coughlan spoke about their comfort level, especially while filming intimate scenes.
