Bridgerton on Netflix: fans hate her character, actress responds to haters -…

New heroine of season 2 of The Bridgerton Chronicle, Edwina Sharma was not unanimous with fans, to the point that some trolled her. His interpreter Charithra Chandran responded to the haters.

Season 2 of The Bridgerton Chronicle has unleashed passions since it was posted on Netflix on March 25. Fans are divided over the love story between Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) and Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley), which relies on the slow rise of desire rather than the very sensual scenes that were numerous in the inaugural season.

But this lack of intensity until the last episodes is not the only criticism made by fans of season 2 of The Bridgerton Chronicle. Charithra Chandran, who plays Edwina Sharma, the little sister of Kate proclaimed diamond of the season and first courted by Anthony, suffered the wrath of some of the fans.

Edwina’s character criticized by fans

The poor young actress received messages of hatred and trolls over her character as the unloved Edwina, who was a brake in spite of herself on the relationship between Anthony and Kate. Fans were also concerned that Edwina could damage her own relationship with her half-sister Kate.

Because you should know that the character of Edwina has much more importance in the series than in the books of Julia Quinn, from which the series is adapted, and that the love triangle between Edwina, Kate and Anthony was invented. The anger of the fans therefore also comes from the fact that the writers did not follow the novel “to the letter”. The viscount who loved me.

If you have seen season 2 of The Bridgerton Chronicle, you know that Anthony and Kate are entitled to a happy ending and that Edwina is more than happy with Kate and her new family by marriage. The excessive fears of some fans were therefore unfounded.

But that didn’t stop some people from attacking actress Charithra Chandran by removing her from the series’ official posters on montages via Photoshop. This kind of hateful action pained the actress a lot, who confided in this subject to Entertainment Weekly :

“It’s been difficult. Of course, it’s a little disappointing, but I’m also like, ‘How can you comment and have such extreme reactions about something you don’t know?’ I don’t know what to say and I can’t lie. Edwina is in love with Anthony on the show. It’s a fact. They have a connection. But also, that doesn’t mean there will be a fight between the two sisters, and it’s more complicated than that.

In reality, the series is very nuanced. It’s so complicated and you don’t see a fight between the sisters. Edwina is seen being hostile with Kate because she loves her very much. At the end of episode 6, she turns on Anthony and tells him ‘You’re shitty and I deserve better, so go away.'[…]Whereas with Kate, it’s a more painful situation because they are much closer. It’s a product of love, not a product of hate.” […)Alorsqu’avecKatec’estunesituationplusdouloureuseparcequ’ellessontbienplusprochesC’estunproduitdel’amourpasunproduitdelahaine”

Charithra Chandran had also asked showrunner Chris Van Dusen that her character not only be a narrative tool but that Edwina be a character in her own right, complex and with a real evolution. A wish that the actress has seen come true:

“Before shooting, I said to Chris Van Dusen, ‘I don’t want Edwina to be just a thread for someone else’s story or a way for the story to move forward.’ want it to have its own identity, its own plot and its own narrative. And I’m so grateful to Chris and the writers for giving me such a rich story.”
