‘Bridgerton’: Hannah Dodd Takes Over Role Of Francesca Bridgerton For Season 3

Bridgerton Season 3 will have a new Francesca Bridgerton, as Hannah Dodd steps in to replace Ruby Stokes.

Based on Julia Quinn’s best-selling series of novels, the series is set in the sexy, lavish and competitive world of Regency London high society. From the glittering ballrooms of Mayfair to the aristocratic palaces of Park Lane and beyond, the series unveils a seductive, sumptuous world replete with intricate rules and dramatic power struggles, where no one is truly ever on steady ground. At the heart of the show is the powerful Bridgerton family. Comprised of eight close-knit siblings, this funny, witty, daring and clever group must navigate the upper ten thousand’s marriage mart in search of romance, adventure and love.

Hannah Dodd will play Francesca Bridgerton when the series returns for season three, taking over the role from Ruby Stokes, who unfortunately has had to leave due to filming clashing with her new Netflix project, Lockwood & Co., where she plays one of the lead roles, Lucy Carlyle.

Francesca is a bit of a mystery within her chatty, extroverted family. Despite her reserved nature, she goes along to get along when it comes to society affairs, fortified with a dry wit and pragmatism that confound the fickle ton yet seem to draw attention when she least desires it.

Rising UK star Hannah Dodd went straight into her first acting job from school, playing one of the series leads in ‘Find Me In Paris’, continuing the role in a further two seasons. Dodd also featured in a recurring role in two seasons of the highly popular series ‘Harlots’. 2022 saw the hugely successful release of ‘Anatomy of a Scandal’ with Dodd standing out as the younger version of series lead Sienna Miller. She then followed this by shooting one of the leads in the mini-series ‘Flowers In The Attic: The Origins’ – an adaptation of the popular and controversial books. Dodd plays the same character portrayed by Heather Graham in the original show. Spanning two generations of family drama, the second half of the story entirely focuses on her character. Finally, Dodd filmed a supporting lead in the sequel to the highly popular film ‘Enola Holmes’ opposite Millie Bobby Brown.

The series comes to Netflix from Shondaland and is executive produced by Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers, Tom Verica and Chris Van Dusen. Jess Brownell also serves as EP and showrunner. ‘Bridgerton’ returns to production for season three this Summer in London.
