Last month, Charithra opened up about putting pressure on herself to ‘do a good job’ on the Bridgerton set, since she feared ‘messing things up for future Indian actors’.

The actress, who said ‘there are so few opportunities available when you are brown’, confessed she went through ‘such an extreme thought process’ while filming her breakthrough part.

She told Grazia about her character Edwina: ‘Her life circumstance is one that, as an Indian, I can say many Indian women also face – which is being brought up to be the perfect daughter, mother, wife, sister.

‘All of those things are, of course, so important, family is always number one. But, often, that means there’s very little room for the self, for one’s own desires.

‘When you are brown, there are so few opportunities available – that’s changing rapidly – but I was stressed that if I didn’t do a good job…what if I messed it up for future Indian actors?’

Bridgerton has been lauded for its representation and its introduction of the Sharma family, and the decision to cast two dark-skinned leads – Charithra and her on-screen sister Simone Ashley – has been praised.
