EXCLUSIVE: Brit actor Luke Thompson, who plays Benedict Bridgerton in Netflix’s all-the-rage series Bridgerton, has signed with UK management firm Insight.

Shondaland’s convention-busting Regency-era period drama was yesterday renewed for a second season by the streamer. The adaptation of Julia Quinn’s novel has captivated viewers to become one of Netflix’s most watched series premieres with 63 million households projected to have seen at least a portion of it in the first four weeks.
