Simone Ashley, who is probably most famous as Kate Sharma from the show "Bridgerton," recently took time out to highlight the stellar performances of her co-stars Nicola Coughlan and Luke Newton in the third season of the Netflix drama that is currently raging.

Ashley came with these comments when she was being feted with an International Golden Nymph Award for Most Promising Talent at the Monte-Carlo Television Festival. According to Variety, Albert II, Prince of Monaco, presented the award to Simone Ashley at a ceremony on Friday, June 14.

In her acceptance speech, Ashley was not forgetful of her colleagues as she paid a heartfelt tribute to her peers in person. She praised their exceptional talents, saying she was excited about what's next for them. This was more or less to celebrate that spirit of cooperation and solidarity that seeped through every aspect of the cast and crew of "Bridgerton." Her acknowledgment invested a personal touch to an already big honor.

Ashley Praises Co-Stars

Ashley says, "This season is led by just think phenomenally talented Nicola Coughlan and Luke Newton. I get so excited for everything that's ahead for them." Ashley was deeply thankful to the team of "Bridgerton" for the great trust they gave her, but she didn't stop there.

She thanked "the many, many beloved fans of this show." The actress of "Little Mermaid" is joyful about Shonda Rhimes, the show's creator, and can only celebrate what the series has become in its third season. "We have strong women writers, and they want to represent women in power," Ashley said.

"This show's full of joy." Confirming that the fourth installment of 'Bridgerton' would not hit the screens for at least two more years has set abuzz ecstatic fans, who have since been speculating over the next chapter of the much-loved show.

The longer wait will thus heighten the anticipation and speculations towards the coming season, keeping the fans talking and at the edge of their chairs for future developments in the "Bridgerton" saga.
