‘Bridgerton’ Actor Jonathan Bailey for Flaunt Magazine

In March, Flaunt Magazine revealed an interview with ‘Bridgerton’ Actor Jonathan Bailey.

For Jonathan Bailey, soon to be protagonist of season 2 of the Netflix period drama Bridgerton, dancing was not a choice. Very early on in his life, he decided that ballet was his passion, and by the age of eight, he had already done two productions. However, society and its strict gender roles of the time stained his prepubescent mind, and he stopped dancing, a decision he still regards as his biggest regret. Nevertheless, he persisted, and the challenges and gifts of the language of ballet have continued on with him to this day, informing his personal ethos and way of being as an artist.

Today, Bailey prides himself on performing in stories that help influence future generations in more holistic and positive realms. He speaks of Bridgerton as an opportunity to open the door for new ways of telling period pieces, including those who had been erased from the narrative.

Currently, the English actor will converse with his former, and soon to be current, director and Tony award-winner, Marianne Elliott. They worked together in the hit 2018 West End revival of Company, which landed him a 2019 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role in a Musical. And soon Bailey will star opposite Flaunt alum, Taron Egerton, in a production of Mike Bartlett’s Cock at The Ambassadors Theatre in London, directed, of course, by Elliott. Read below, as Bailey and Elliott alight on performance on stage and on screen, the magic of Shonda Rhimes, TV’s inclusivity itch, and more.
