BESSIE CARTER has returned as Prudence, the eldest daughter in the Featheringon family, in the new season of BRIDGERTON. Prudence is perpetually single, but remains determined to find herself a husband in this brand-new series.
Bessie has previously featured in the period television dramas Howard's End (2017) and Beecham House (2019), and the films The Good Liar (2019), alongside Dame Helen Mirren and Sir Ian McKellen, and Les Misérables (2012).
She has a wonderfully warm and relaxed voice. Whilst still youthful, her tones are somewhat husky, and she can lend her voice to both younger and more mature roles. Listen to Bessie’s voice reels here.
“Bridgerton season two is almost identical to the first, even down to the violin quartet covers of pop songs (Madonna’s “Material Girls”, Alanis Morisette’s “You Oughta Know”). Yet it doesn’t feel tired or old hat, managing to be cheery and luxurious at once.”
- Emily Baker, The i
"Bridgerton is in fine health and ready for what will doubtless be many more seasons"
- Jack Seale, The Guardian
