India has been winning hearts worldwide as the young Queen Charlotte. Playing the 17-year-old version of the royal, India brings fresh energy to the character originally portrayed by Golda Rosheuvel in Bridgerton. The show explores Queen Charlotte’s early marriage to King George III, played by Corey Mylchreest. India’s performance is praised for its depth and relatability, drawing on her own experiences as a mixed-race actress navigating identity and belonging. India expressed how her mixed heritage, with a white mother and a Black father born in London with Ghanaian ancestry, resonates with Queen Charlotte’s struggle of not feeling a sense of belonging. She said: “I know what it’s like to walk into a room and have everyone look at you because you’re the only person of colour.”

She has also appeared in Doctor Who AND Sex Education
