Charithra Chandran explains Edwina’s journey in “Bridgerton” Season 2
While Edwina’s story may not end in a marriage, in Bridgerton Season 2, she does grow a lot. Charithra Chandran, the actress, spoke to Shondaland about her character’s journey. She began, “Edwina’s is a coming-of-age tale.”
“She transforms from a young girl to a confident young lady. It’s all about self-discovery, self-love, and the courage these things require. Women are expected to sacrifice a lot, especially as women. Edwina is an example of this. Relationships with others are what define women, whether they’re sisters, daughters, mothers, wives, or other family members. It’s almost like we are worth something in ourselves.
