Nicola Coughlan Wants to bring Megan Thee Stallion's Bridgerton Dream Come True

If you saw Bridgerton and thought it needed more hot girl vibes, it looks like you're not the only one. One Nicola Coughlan, who plays the main character of Season 3, Penelope Featherington, is ready to give the ton something special. She just needs Shondaland to get Megan Thee Stallion on board. 

On October 15, when Megan was the host of Saturday Night Live and the rapper was the musical guest, people started talking about the rapper and Bridgerton. During her speech, she talked about all of her skills, including the fact that she was "a really good actress." That made her show off her British accent and ask to be on one of Netflix's most popular shows in public. The three-time Grammy winner said in a simple way, "Put me in Bridgerton, b*tch." 

So, the message got through. Megan's monologue seemed to have gone by Coughlan by the time she posted a video to her Instagram story on Oct. 21. The video showed her watching and reacting to the SNL moment. In the clip, the Derry Girls veteran said, "Yes, hi, is this Shondaland?" "Yeah, I have another idea for our cast. "Are you all set?" 

Megan might not be able to join Season 3 since filming started in July, but a Twitter user came up with a great way for her to be involved now: "@shondaland could we have a song from Megan Thee Stallion," they wrote while "throwing out ideas." It's a great idea because the show's soundtrack is known for giving modern hits a classical makeover. Whether or not it will happen is a different question. 

In Season 3 of Bridgerton, the story of Penelope and Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton), who has been her secret crush for a long time, will continue. This story is based on the book Romancing Mister Bridgerton by Julia Quinn. The book is actually the fourth in the series by Quinn, but Bridgerton will highlight Polin right away.

 On October 4, Coughlan answered fans on Instagram who were upset about the change and other things about the hit Netflix show. "I will never be able to say anything about storylines, how stories are put together, what is on posters, who is on posters, or who is doing what press," she said. "Like, that's way out of my league." 

Coughlan also said that she "doesn't have much of a choice in most things," which unfortunately includes being cast. She can suggest that Shondaland figure out a way to bring Megan in, but it's not up to her in the end. She also said, "I'm there to act." 

Several of the new Bridgerton characters for Season 3 have already been named. Deadline just announced that Hannah New (Black Sails) will join the cast. She will play Lady Tilley Arnold, a young widow who loves being financially and sexually free. 

"I couldn't have asked for a better, stronger, more fun, and sexier woman to play!" On Oct. 14, New wrote about her character on Instagram. It sounds like Megan will help make it a hot girl ton with or without her.
