Calam Lynch made a big impression as Theo Sharpe during his Bridgerton debut. The hard working printers’ assistant and Eloise’s love interest, quickly became a fan favourite. But the ending of season two left Calam and Theo’s future on the show uncertain.
Until now that is, as the actor just dropped a few hints about his hopes for the next season of Bridgerton.
Speaking to US Weekly, the Black Beauty star confessed, that he’d love to see Theo explore Eloise’s world in high society London for the next series of the period drama. Saying; “I think they should be together just thinking about the characters. Because Eloise has had to come into Theo’s world in season 2, I find it really exciting to think about what it would be like if he came into hers.”
“Eloise has so much love to give and she’s such a fiercely loyal person and a kind person. I’d love to see her guide him through the, like, total jungle of going into a ball or something. That would be really sweet to watch.”
As for why he thinks the on-screen couple are so good together, he revealed; “I think it really suits her to have someone who challenges her and that’s what Theo does.”
But he also believes the couple have their fair share of struggles ahead, saying; “Class is a big thing back then. So, it might just break their hearts. It may be too difficult. We’ll have to see.”
While nothing is certain about his return next season, Calam wouldn’t have a problem going back considering how well he got on with the rest of the cast, including his former Derry Girls co-star, Nicola Coughlan.
It turns out Nicola was a big help to Calam when he started on the show. The Dunkirk star revealed; “[Nicola] was really lovely about it. In the makeup trailer when we were doing fittings and stuff before we started shooting — like three months before — she texted me one day saying like, ‘I saw your face on the makeup trailer,’”
“After that she added me to the [Bridgerton cast] WhatsApp group and everything.”
While Bridgerton is one of Calam’s biggest roles to date, he is no stranger to the entertainment industry. His parents are Irish actors Niamh Cusack and Finbar Lynch. While his aunts are famed actresses Sinéad, Sorcha, and Catherine Cusack.
He also has an uncle in the industry being related to producer Pádraig Cusack. But his famous relatives don’t stop there as his grandparents were actors Cyril and Maureen Cusack. While his cousin is actor Max Irons.
But he does have one noticeable relative who didn’t venture into the entertainment industry, his cousin Richard Boyd Barrett, the People Before Profit/Solidarity politician. This isn’t Richard’s time being connected to a Hollywood star as just last week model Bella Hadid shared her support for the politician.
