Instead of further talking about his possible heartthrob status on the upcoming show, the actor diverted the attention to his ‘Bridgerton’ spinoff co-star Freddie Dennis, who plays the role of Reynolds.

“He’s the real heartthrob of the whole operation,” he stated.


Moreover, Mylchreest also noted that the heartthrob status is a result of the entire ‘Bridgerton’ team’s effort.

“It’s a testament to the team at Netflix, and Shonda [Rhimes]’s writing, and Tom [Verica]’s direction, and everyone else’s acting.”

“They could put anyone in this role, and they would be a contender for whatever sort of sexy man thing there is. So, I don’t feel any need to prepare for that because I don’t think it’s necessarily coming,” he further expressed.

Dashing and humble — Mylchreest is already a good candidate as ‘Bridgerton’s next heartthrob. Also, ‘Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story’ is set to premiere on Netflix on May 4. In the meantime, you can watch the trailer here:
