Charithra Chandran is a British actress who has been in the headlines lately as she is set to star in the second season of the Netflix series Bridgerton, along with the new lead character Simone Ashley. Charithra first gained fame as Sabina Pleasance in the sci-fi series Alex Rider. Now, she is worth $200,000, and fans want to know more about her before the release of her new show.
Hailing from Scotland, Charithra was born on January 17, 1997, to Indian parents. Her full name is Charithra Surya Chandran. Standing at 5’6″, she is currently 25 years old. Her mom and dad are both medical professionals, so they relocated multiple times in her childhood.
She returned to the UK and attended boarding school from the age of six to 11 before arriving in Oxford with her family as a teenager. She graduated from Oxford High School’s sixth form.
Later on, she went to New College, Oxford, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics in 2019. During her time at university, she took part in a variety of productions and ended up joining the National Youth Theatre.
After taking a gap year, she was employed part-time for the New Policy Institute, where she practiced drama as a leisure activity before deciding to pursue it as a profession.
She is relatively new to the entertainment industry. She got her first acting gig in 2021. It was in the British spy thriller Alex Rider, a show based on a science fiction novel series by Anthony Horowitz. In it, Charithra played a character named Sabina Pleasance.
Her performance was well-received, and just the following year after her acting debut, three film projects were lined up on her list. One of them is the upcoming season two of the hit Netflix show, Bridgerton.
Bridgerton Season 2
Charithra Chandran is one of the two new beauties to be added to the Bridgerton main cast for season two. She is set to play Edwina Sharma, the younger sister of Kate Sharma, who will be portrayed by Sex Education star Simone Ashley.
The trailer for the approaching season has already dropped, and it’s giving viewers a lot of ideas on what will happen to Chandran’s character. It’s clear that Edwina has piqued Anthony Bridgerton’s attention in his search for a wife.
Kate, on the other hand, sees right through Anthony and is willing to keep her sister safe from a loveless relationship. However, in doing so, it seems that a love triangle may unfold on the show’s season two release on March 25, 2022.
Chandran has been the subject of inquiries about her romantic relationship. She is, however, very private about her personal affairs, not revealing much about her love life to the press.
She has not made any posts on social media that would lead followers to believe she’s in a relationship. It looks like she’s dedicating most of her time to improving her acting career.
