While fans now have a new glimpse at Simone and Tino's connection, they will soon also have a new look at Kate Sharma (Simone's Bridgerton character) and Viscount Anthony Bridgerton (played by Jonathan Bailey) in a new light.

"We're filming a dance this week and tonally, it's so different," Simone told British Vogue in November. "Sweet, endearing and light, compared to the heaviness of their story last season."

"I'm very happy when I'm reading the scripts," she said at the time. "When I receive them, I've got a beaming smile on my face."
