’Star Wars’ star John Boyega has signalled interest in taking on a role in Netflix’s trending raunchy drama ‘Bridgerton’.
John Boyega admits he wants a role in Netflix’s ‘Bridgerton’
The second season of the regency-era series premiered last month.
Boyega in a chat with Metro, revealed how much of a fan he’s been of the Chris Van Dusen created show as well as being open to a role.
“Oh absolutely! I would, I'm all about versatility,” Boyega said.
“That's what we were taught especially in drama school, we were taught about roles that wouldn't necessarily come our way but we were still trained to try and portray it.
"So yeah definitely, I would love to be in things that are more nuanced.
"After this period and doing Star Wars and being on quite a strict eight-year contract and being out of that, my man now feels like a football player like, 'what team?'
“I feel like definitely, I have more space for things that are different for sure."
Starring Jonathan Bailey and Simone Ashley in the lead roles, the second season of the series centres on Viscount Anthony Bridgerton’s quest for a bride. Prior to the season’s March release, Netflix had green-lit a third and fourth season.
According to multiple media outlets, season three of the steamy series will centre on Queen Charlotte.
‘Bridgerton’ first premiered on the streamer in 2020, with actors Regé-Jean Page and Phoebe Dynevor playing love interests.
