The making of a hit show often has its own behind-the-scenes drama, and "Bridgerton" is no exception.  Fans have come to adore the characters that grace their screens, but few know the intriguing casting backstory that could've altered the very fabric of the series.

Initially, several of the show's actors auditioned for different roles than the ones they ultimately landed.  Free from the constraints of casting particular "names," casting directors had the creative liberty to find the best fits for each character.

 Their selections have been widely praised, particularly the decision to cast Kate Sharma instead of the initially written Kate Sheffield, which played a pivotal role in the show's second season's immense popularity.Nicola Coughlan, who now plays fan-favorite Penelope Featherington, went into her audition without having time to read the entire book series, demonstrating the actors' commitment to securing a spot on the show.  Similarly, Hannah Dodd, cast in the highly anticipated third season, was unaware of the specifics surrounding her audition.
