What Does Hugh Grant Have To Say About Bridget Jones 4 And Reprising His Role?

Renee Zellweger and Hugh Grant are all set to reprise their roles as Bridget and Daniel Cleaver in the forthcoming Bridget Jones sequel.

The cast will also include newcomers such as Leo Woodhall and Chiwetel Ejiofor from The White Lotus and Doctor Strange respectively. 

The Notting Hill star told Entertainment Tonight, “I'll tell you what, I think this script for the fourth Bridget is the best one of the four.

Grant, 63, had taken a brief break from the movie series back in 2016 with his character written out as dead. However, at the end of the movie Bridget Jones’s Baby hinted at a promise of his character’s return in forthcoming sequels with a suggestive newspaper headline.

The Love Actually actor also noted how exciting the plot of the film is as it is partly based on novelist Helen Fielding’s personal experiences of single motherhood. Bridget is caught between raising her two children by herself and wanting to date again. Hugh Grant showered the movie script with praises and called it tear-jerking.
