    Actress Emma Naomi talked to People magazine about what going against the Queen’s wishes might mean for her character. “I think it would be a huge statement to go against that advice,” Naomi said. “A social, maybe even political statement, to go against that advice. And so, it’s not just a family decision in supporting Will’s dreams at that point, it’s about solidifying our place in this society.” 

    Emma Naomi continued to say, “I think on one level, she can see it from Will’s point of view. He’s sacrificed so much, we both did, to get where we are now. But at the end of the day, the bigger goal is to support our children and to give them and the whole family a good life. So, it’s a sacrifice that we have to make.”

    Actor Imhangbe, who plays Will Mondrich in ‘Bridgerton‘ shares similar thoughts. “I think it’s about understanding what’s at stake. If you give up this, how does it impact that?” he explained. “I think at the center of everything for Will is the family. So, as much as you want to have your own pride and sense of self, you kind of have to honor your family at the same time.”
