With its steamy carriage scenes and romantic ballroom rendezvous, Bridgerton season three is certainly leaving viewers hot under the collar. But it’s the love blooming off-screen which is the real story of the season.

Among those to find a new partner on the set of the show? Bessie Carter, whose parents are none other than acting royalty, Jim Carter (Downton Abbey) and Imelda Staunton (Harry Potter, The Crown). The 27-year-old actress plays Prudence Featherington, the eldest of the three Featherington daughters, and one of two that Lady Featherington is trying to find a husband for at the beginning of the first season of the show. Carter has previously acted in Howards End, Doc Martin, and Cranford, as well as a minor role in the 2012 film Les Misérables.

And, much like her parents, Bessie appears to have found love with another thespian. According to MailOnline, Bessie has struck up a romance with her co-star Sam Phillips, so serious that they moved in together last year. Phillips is a newcomer to the Bridgerton universe, joining the season three cast as Lord Debling, one of Penelope Featherington’s love interests. According to MailOnline, the couple met while filming for the series, which began in July 2022, with Bessie moving into Sam’s flat in Brighton last summer.
