Luke Newton has become the talk of the town after portraying Colin Bridgerton in season 3 of the Netflix show Bridgerton. The actor’s chemistry with his co-star, Nicola Coughlan, has been lauded by the fans of the show.

In his interaction with the entertainment portal, Newton learned that the other day, Coughlan opened TikTok, and as she scrolled over, all of the videos had been about Bridgerton and Polin. The reporter soon asked the actor if it in any way makes him the heartthrob of the industry, to which Newton replied, “Not really, to be honest.”

The British actor added, “I don’t know why; I feel like that’s never really something you can take in and appreciate to the full.” Colin and Penelope’s intimacy in season 3 of the show has gotten the viewers hooked on the episodes. Meanwhile, the storyline revolves around the duo, leading to revelations of secrets and looking forward to the new season. 


Speaking of the reel couple of the show, Ruth Gemmell, who plays Lady Whistledown in Bridgerton, revealed, “As an audience member, cast member, and character, we’ve been watching these two dance around the issue for the past two seasons. So it’s really lovely to see that come to fruition, and they do it beautifully.”
