The 34-year-old actress plays Penelope Featherington in the hit Netflix period drama and hints that things will be lively for her character as she is unmasked as the town gossip Lady Whistledown.
Nicola told Entertainment Tonight: "It's got a whole lot spicier I will say. You definitely see more sides to her. We find out at the end of season one (that she's Lady Whistledown), that is there but we don't want to get to explore it. But the world cracks open.
"I feel like the 'Bridgerton' world has grown and you're going to see a lot more sides to her. She's a sassy chick."
