Season three of Netflix's Bridgerton is all anyone can talk about with the first part having been released in May 2024. With the press tour full steam ahead fans are growing even more fond of actress Claudia Jessie, who plays Eloise Bridgerton in the regency-era drama.

How old is Claudia Jessie?

Despite playing a fresh-faced 18-year-old coming out to society in Bridgerton, Claudia is actually 34 years old. Born 30 October 1989 she's a Scorpio.

Where is Claudia Jessie from?

The talented star hails from Moseley – a suburb in south Birmingham – and began acting in productions based in the West Midlands in 2012. However, she spent a lot of her childhood in North London too.

In conversation with The Guardian she revealed that she lived in a houseboat between Birmingham and London. She said: "When my dad was still about, we spent a lot of time on the canal, but we were always on and off the boat. And I was also raised in a big old council estate in north London."

She went on to describe her childhood as "rough", saying: "All I ever knew was things being really hard. Dad was off, Mum worked as a cleaner. It was just difficult. I’ve got good memories of Mum and my brother, but we had no money, there were bailiffs at the door, it was horrible.”

Yes, although her character Eloise is pretty against any kind of relationship, Claudia is currently dating one of Bridgerton's casting director Cole Edwards.

Speaking to The Guardian about her audition for Eloise, she said: "I got a job and a fella on the same day.” “It was a great day for me, wasn’t it?” she jested. Previously, Claudia had been romantically linked to a sound engineer called Joseph.
