Here Are The Ages Of The "Bridgerton" Cast On The Show Vs. In Real Life

In case you were wondering.

I'm not going to lie, it's kind of hard to nail down EXACTLY how old each character in Bridgerton is. But based on a combo of what we know from the show and the handy dandy official Bridgerton family tree, I've tried my best to be as precise as possible. Please don't yell at me if I'm a year or two off. Anyway, here's the info you came for:

1. In the show, Anthony Bridgerton is 30.

In real life, Jonathan Bailey is 33.
