India Amarteifio also said she appreciates the significance of having diversity among the cast, especially in a series that takes place more than two centuries in the past. “It’s so important,” Amarteifio said. “Not only just for actors to have more strings to their bow in the sense of the genres that they can tap into and they can play with, but just for little girls and boys to see themselves represented in any way, shape, or form, especially for young Black children. Period pieces [were] never really a genre that was open for me.” 

She added that series creator Shonda Rhimes deserves credit for introducing that diversity to “Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story” as she has done with her other successful endeavors like “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal,” and “Station 19.” 

I think that is what is great about Shonda, as well,”  Amarteifio said. “She consciously makes the effort to involve everyone in her projects, which, hopefully, in years to come, won’t have to be such a big deal.” She had additional praise for Rhimes, saying the legendary showrunner and writer had made herself available to the up-and-coming stars of “Queen Charlotte” as a friend and mentor during production. “She is wonderful and just so giving of her time and everything that she bestows,” Amarteifio said. “She’s very happy to share, which is amazing… she was just really supportive of us.”
