‘Bridgerton’ Casting Director Reveals She Receives 'Unsolicited' X-Rated Audition Videos Daily

Some would-be stars are so eager to be in the next season of “Bridgerton” that they’ve been bombarding casting director Kelly Valentine Hendry’s inbox with “unsolicited” videos.

While appearing on Sunday’s episode of the “Should I Delete That?” podcast, Hendry, who has worked on the Netflix period drama since it first aired in 2020, admitted that NSFW clips land in her inbox like clockwork.

“It’s every day … I get the most unbelievable videos, unsolicited,” Hendry, 47, told the podcast’s hosts, Em Clarkson and Alex Light. “It’s sex basically. It’s not actual sex but it’s quite punchy. ... It’s not nudie pictures, but it’s not far off.”

She added, “It’s a bit sad, really.”

Hendry went on to reveal that many of the actors who reach out hoping to join the romance series want to star as Sophie Beckett despite the role not being officially confirmed yet.

In Julia Quinn’s “Bridgerton” novels, Beckett is the love interest of Benedict Bridgerton (played by Luke Thompson in the Netflix series).

It’s probably not too shocking for actors to submit racy clips considering the popular show is known for its steamy scenes.

Back in May, “Bridgerton” star Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope Featherington, revealed that she took on some especially steamy scenes in the recently released third season in order to shut down trolls who criticized her appearance.

“I specifically asked for certain lines and moments to be included,” Coughlan recalled of collaborating with the series’ intimacy coordinator, Lizzy Talbot.

“There’s one scene where I’m very naked on camera, and that was my idea, my choice,” she added. “It just felt like the biggest ‘fuck you’ to all the conversation surrounding my body; it was amazingly empowering.”
