Who is Lord Anderson in ‘Bridgerton’ Season 3? Everything We Know….

There’s a new face in the Ton – Netflix has shared a first look at Daniel Francis as Lord Marcus Anderson in season 3 of Bridgerton. 

But who exactly is Lord Anderson? It appears he may be a potential love interest for Bridgerton family matriarch, Violet (played by Ruth Gemmell).

In a brief video shared by the official Bridgerton Instagram page on April 28, Lord Anderson can be seen standing between Violet and Lady Danbury (Adjoah Andoh) looking towards Violet and smiling in her direction. Violet is clearly quite taken by him and bites her lip as she politely smiles whilst Lady Danbury is looking, let’s just say, not so pleased.

“Only time may tell what should happen when a charismatic gentleman such as Lord Anderson enters the picture,” the caption reads.

Sharing the clip on his own Instagram page, Daniel Francis writes, “It’s about to get interesting…”


News of the Stay Close actor joining season 3 was first reported by Deadline in July 2022 who also revealed that The Crown’s Sam Phillips and Wreck’s James Phoon had been cast as well.

In May 2022, Nicola Coughlan who stars as Penelope Featherington, announced Season 3 would focus on Penelope’s relationship with Colin Bridgerton (played by Luke Newton). #Polin!

“Like Lady Whistledown, I’ve been keeping quite a big secret for quite a long time…. but I can finally tell you that @bridgertononnetflix Season Three is Colin and Penelope’s Story,” she posted on Instagram.

The hugely successful period drama from Shondaland will premiere on Netflix in two parts – the first on May 16 and the second on June 13.
