It’s not every day that you see an American A-lister enthusiastically praising an Irish actress and their work online, but that’s exactly what happened with Bridgerton star Nicola Coughlan and Kim Kardashian.
The KUWTK star recently revealed that she was “obsessed” with Bridgerton after bingeing the Netflix show, and she’s now made it clear to Nicola that she’s in a group chat just to chat all things Bridgerton.
Explaining that the Kardashians were a big inspiration for the Featherington family in the show, Nicola tweeted, “As the world’s number one @bridgerton stan does @KimKardashian know that the Kardashians were a massive inspiration for the Featheringtons and we talked about them all the time during our fittings?”

Kim then replied to Nicola’s tweet, saying, “WHAT?!?! I am freaking out!!!!!! This tweet was sent to me on my @bridgerton group chat! Can I please come to a fitting?!?! It would make my whole life!!!!!! I love you Lady W!!!”
Nicola was, of course, delighted with Kim’s response, replying “Omg yesss of course we would love to have you!”
Before adding: “Also did you know that Mr Pearl made your corset for the Met Gala and the very next one he made was mine for Bridgerton? You’ve been part of the Bridgerton world for longer than you know!”
