This season, four members of Painshill staff had the incredible opportunity to join in the fun by becoming Supporting Artists.

The Painshill colleagues submitted their applications to Netflix and were excited when they were called up for costume fitting, hair and makeup.

During the filming, the Painshill crew were right in the middle of the action, getting to see how the magic happens behind the scenes!

The week before filming commenced, the Bridgerton team transformed Painshill into a Regency era funfair, complete with stalls, cakes, toys, a maypole, a bar, a Punch and Judy show and many colourful marquees. Hanging over the entire area was a huge, bright green crane carrying a hot air balloon basket. Bright green of course because it would need to be edited out later and a hot air balloon added in by the talented Netflix editing team.

The attention to detail was so striking, every prop was perfectly placed, every flower arranged beautifully. The Painshill crew learned some wonderful tricks of the trade, such as the fact that the food is sprayed with plastic to make it last longer and many of the marquees hid camera equipment or crew members.

Chrissie from Painshill, who played a stall holder, said:
“It was a wonderful experience to be part of the Bridgerton team and we are all so glad we did it. We came away with a huge amount of admiration for the level of work involved in making the production and for the hard working people who make their careers in television. Thank you to all the team who made it possible. We have the most incredible memories of our time with the Bridgerton production team and cast.”
