Immediately after, the Iris actress approved Kardashian’s request to visit the set. “Omg yesss of course we would love to have you! Also did you know that Mr Pearl made your corset for the Met Gala and the very next one he made was mine for Bridgerton?” Coughlan revealed. ”You‘ve been part of the Bridgerton world for longer than you know! ❤️❤️❤️”
Netflix also joined the conversation, saying that they will be making sure Kim Kardashian tries out some outfits. “Kim Featherington does have a nice ring to it -- I‘ll see what I can do!” they wrote on Twitter.

Coughlan also shared which Kardashian sister her character, Penelope Featherington, might be. According to the star, she often discusses with her co-stars Harriet Cains (Philippa Featherington) and Bessie Carter (Prudence Featherington).
“The three of us genuinely debate this all the time, I think Prudence and Phillipa are very Kourtney and Khloe cos they‘re besties, and Pen is a very successful business woman, also I remember Kim being like a very good detective too so there’s that...” the actress tweeted.
