'Bridgerton' star Nicola Coughlan reveals 1st scene gave huge clue about ending
You could say it was a real feather in her cap.
"When I filmed Penelope’s first scene I chose a prop, a massive massive feather that looked a lot like (the quill)," she tweeted.Now, this is not precisely the big"how could I have missed it" reveal you might think it would be, though it is fun as a callback once you've seen the whole first season. First of all, no one knew how critical Lady Whistledown's missives would be to the plot turns of the show. Second, Penelope's last name is
Featherington. It's hardly unusual to imagine her wearing a namesake object!Finally, Lady Whistledown was voiced, off camera, by Julie Andrews — and pretty much every fan wondered if she'd be making a cameo appearance at some point. (In the books the series is based on, readers found this out in the fourth novel,"Romancing Mister Bridgerton"; she's only revealed 11 years after she started writing her gossip column.)
