Simone Ashley attends Cabaret at the KitKat Club, passes the Bridgerton Torch to Nicola Coughlan, promotes her new movie 10 Lives, celebrates her birthday + more in updates!

{ Written by G on April 04 2024 }

Another few weeks packed full of Simone content!

Didn’t think we’d be writing of another Bridgerton update so soon after the last one, but we are being spoiled!

The day after our last post on March 25th, we got the Bridgerton S2 bloopers and we were then FURTHER spoiled by being given a promotional Kanthony snippet from season 3

March 26th came the video of Simone Ashley graciously passing along the Bridgerton leading lady torch to Nicola Coughlan, whilst answering some questions about her time filming Season 2 – and to top it off we were also treated to new pictures of Simone before the Valentino FW show from the photographer.

Two days later on the 28th Simone attended a press night for Cabaret at the KitKat Club – Simone did not take any portraits inside, so it is assumed she was attending in a personal capacity rather than professional.

On the 30th Simone celebrated her 29th birthday! She was quiet on the day BUT she shared some wonderful photographs afterward.

And as April started, we’ve been treated to small videos of Simone to promote 10 Lives! The videos have also solved the mystery of why Simone was wearing the famous green dress in pictures posted by her glam squad last year! The movie releases tomorrow, 5th April.


Pictures and screencaps from the above mentioned have been added to the gallery, check out the links below!

Other misc additions to the gallery include
– promotional material for 10 lives including posters and concept art
– a new still from Sex Education where Simone can be seen in the background
– a newly shared promo image of Simone and Julia Garner for Nespresso

Bridgerton Season 3 Teaser + Season 2 Rewatch!

{ Written by G on March 24 2024 }

Dearest Gentle Reader…

Hi guys! Over the past week a tonne of new Bridgerton content has come our way. Netflix did an official Season 2 rewatch on instagram in anticipation of the new season coming, and during this they shared previously unseen BTS pictures of Simone! We also received a few quality upgrades too for a few pictures we had already seen.

On the 20th, Netflix also released a teaser scene from the newest season – the scene is from the first ball of the season and is centred on our favourite couple, the Viscount and Viscountess Bridgerton!

We anticipate a full trailer very soon but for now, the gallery has been updated with screencaps of the teaser, the new BTS from season 2, the new stills we hadn’t yet uploaded from the Bridgerton bts book released last year (whoops) – plus we’ve managed to do quality upgrades on a lot of the existing pictures within the gallery due to the rewatch and them generally becoming available over the two years since the season released!

Simone also managed to squeeze in a helicopter ride across the city!

Misc – Personal Fun!

Press Section Update

{ Written by G on October 28 2023 }

Just a small post to say that the press section of our site is now completely up to date. We had fallen behind a little after March 22 as Simone received so much press after the release of Bridgerton All interviews conducted with Simone, or articles written about her containing first person quotes / breaking information have now been added to our press section. Each post is listed by year and is noted by publication and published date. Sources for all are linked – and where behind a paywall this is mentioned.

Visit the ‘Press’ tab above, or alternatively click here to be taken to the press section, enjoy reading back through Simone’s interviews to see how far she’s come!
