The series features a large cast that also includes Adjoa Andoh, Lorraine Ashbourne, Harriet Cains, Bessie Carter, Shelley Conn, Nicola Coughlan, Ruth Gemmell, Florence Hunt, Martins Imhangbe, Claudia Jessie, Calam Lynch, Luke Newton, Golda Rosheuvel, Luke Thompson, Will Tilston, Polly Walker, Rupert Young, and Julie Andrews as the voice of Lady Whistledown.

“They’re an incredibly interesting and exciting pair,” she continued. “I like to watch them.”
“Our goal, if we do our job correctly, is you are going to be as invested and excited by that couple as you were by the couple of Season 1,” she added.
