Nicola Coughlan, the star of Netflix's Bridgerton, does not have any partner as of April 2022 and is currently single. Recently, Netflix released Season 2 of Bridgerton which is why fans were curious to know about Nicola Coughlan's relationship status and dating life with a potential boyfriend in 2022. Well, the Penelope Featherington actress seems to be focusing on her career right now rather than searching for the love of her life.
Coughlan was born on January 9, 1987, in Galway, Ireland, and grew up in Oranmore. She decided to be an actor at the age of five after seeing her older sister perform in a school play.
Nicola Coughlan went to primary school at Scoil Mhuire and senior education at Calasanctius College. She graduated from the National University of Ireland, Galway, with a degree in English and Classical Civilization. She went on to study acting at the Oxford School of Drama and the Birmingham School of Acting in England.
Recently, Netflix released the second season of Bridgerton where Nicola plays the role of the youngest Featherington daughter and fans are curious to know more about her, including her life partner.
Nicola Coughlan's Partner: Does the Bridgerton Star Have a Boyfriend in 2022?
Nicola Coughlan appears to be quickly becoming everyone's new favorite. The Galway girl is a bit of a celebrity, thanks to her recent appearance as the apparently shy Penelope Featherington in the popular Netflix drama Bridgerton and her renowned portrayal as the wee lesbian Clare Devlin in Northern Irish teen comedy Derry Girls.
Yet, after acting in one of the most romantic and raunchy dramas of the last five years, it's no surprise that fans are wondering if Nicola Coughlan has a boyfriend.
Coughlan, 35, appears to be single at the moment and getting the benefits of her recent success. Coughlan's Instagram account (@nicolacoughlan) shows glimpses of several of her incredible friendships, including those with her Bridgerton and Derry Girls co-stars.
Jonathan Van Ness (@jvn), everyone's favorite hairdresser on the Queer Eye series, is another of her besties. Coughlan was JVN's date at Elton John's Oscars party which is pretty awesome. Even better, it appears they became friends over Instagram.
It's easy to see why Coughlan is so popular both on and off the set. She campaigns publicly for the rights of women and LGBTQ+ communities, including throwing her support behind the This Is Me campaign in Ireland (directed by her friend Noah Halpin) and The Rainbow Project in Northern Ireland.
Fans of Penelope and Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) were rooting for them to start dating, as Penelope has romantic feelings for her long-time friend. The pair also obtained the nickname Polin (Penelope and Colin). Unfortunately, Luke is in a relationship with his long-time girlfriend, Jade Louise Davies.
Therefore, Nicola Coughlan appears to be single right now. However, she could be dating someone in private. Anyone would be lucky to be the life partner of such a charming person. I would certainly think of approaching Nicola for a date if only I was single.
Which Bridgerton Season 2 Scene Made Nicola Coughlan Feel Sick?
Whether there's a real hookup or the pent-up longing and sniffing that precedes it, the most memorable Netflix's Bridgerton scenes are generally steamy.
Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope Featherington on Bridgerton, recently stated that one scene from Season 2 of the show remained with her for the opposite reason.
Coughlan said in an interview with E! News that the season finale battle between Eloise and Penelope felt far too realistic. She told the newspaper,
Friendship breakups are just so horrendous. To film that scene was really harrowing and actually like, made me feel sick to my stomach.
Penelope accuses Eloise of being jealous of her hidden writing career during the fight, and the young Bridgerton tells Pen she will never see her again. Coughlan and Claudia Jessie are close friends, so they both truly cried during filming, according to Coughlan.
Coughlan and Jessie, according to their characters' analytical nature, figured out the bestie breakup before they received scripts for Episode 8.
