While she plays the free-spirited and unmarried Eloise Brigerton on the hit Netflix series Bridgerton, actress Claudia Jessie enjoys a real-life romance off-screen.

The 34-year-old has been dating Cole Edwards, one of the casting directors who helped her land her breakout role on ‘Bridgerton.’

Jessie and Edwards have kept their relationship relatively private, only giving glimpses into their romance during interviews.

However, the actress did open up a bit about how they met while reflecting on her ‘Bridgerton‘ audition process.

I got a job and a fella on the same day,” Jessie told The Guardian.

“It was a great day for me, wasn’t it?”

She credits Edwards’s working-class background as a casting director on Bridgerton with helping her seize the role of Eloise despite not coming from an upper-crust background typically associated with period dramas.

I think Bridgerton is brilliant because there are loads of people who wouldn’t usually be seen in those roles as a lady or a duke,” Jessie said.

“When I get interviewed, I am often asked if I’d like to live in the Bridgerton world and I have to remind them that if I did I’d be staff.”

While her life has changed drastically due to Bridgerton‘s global success, the working-class actress from Birmingham seems to be taking it all in stride.

She lives with Edwards and their pet dog in her hometown’s Jewellry Quarter.

She remains grateful just to be earning a living as an actor.

If I can get some cash for acting I’m fucking winning. I didn’t think any of it would happen,” Jessie said.

“If it all went tits-up tomorrow and I died or something, well, my life has been amazing.”
