Simone Ashley in Bridgerton as Kate Sharma

Life of Bridgerton Star Actress Simone Ashley

Simone Ashley (born on March 30, 1995) is 27 years old British actress famous for her role of Kate Sharma in Chris Van Dusen’s production “Bridgerton.” Pillai has been working with this franchise since season one, and she is also in the new installment that came on screens on March 25.

The show “Bridgerton” is based on the novel of the famous Julia Quinn, in which events took place in 19 century England when there was the rule of King George III, also known as the Regency Era.

It is not known to many people that her real name is Simone Ashwini Pillai, and she belongs to the Tamil community. It has been more than six years since she has been working as an actress in which she did eleven shows, three movies, and a few short movies.

Ashwini’s most notable works include “Pokémon Detective Pikachu,” “Sex Education,” and “The Sister.” There is a lot in her T.V. career already, but her career has just started on the movie front.

Simone Ashley Parents & Early Life

On March 30, 1995, Simone Ashley, aka Simone Ashwini Pillai (age 27), was born in Camberley, Surrey, England, in a Tamilian family. In an interview with Elle, she expressed how difficult it was for her to choose the field of art as her father Gunasekharan and mother Latha both are intellectual people.

Her parents think that pursuing acting as a career is a promising but uncertain endeavor as there is no security whatsoever. Even after Simone’s appearance in “Bridgerton,” her parents are skeptical about her career, but her elder brother always supports her.

After moving from Camberley to Beaconsfield, she started learning classical music and even attended piano classes. There is a theatre in Maidenhead named Redroofs Theatre School where Ashley participated in a stage show for the first time.

There was an argument with parents regarding career choices, but she convinced them, after which Pillai attended London’s Arts Educational School.

Acting Career

Breaking all the odds, Simone Ashley did her training and completed her graduation in 2017, but her chance to act came a year early, in 2016. It was “Wolfblood,” Debbie Moon’s award-winning fantasy drama, which got quite popular among teens.

In no time after “Wolfblood,” Simone signed in for another drama series called “Guilt.” In this production of Nichole Millard, the character that Pillai played appeared in only one episode, titled “A Simple Plan.”

In the future came opportunities for her to act in “Broadchurch,” “C.B. Strike,” “Inspector Coliandro,” “Doctors,” “Casualty,” and “A Working Mom’s Nightmare.” She also portrayed characters with her acting in movies named “Boogie Man,” “Kill Ben Lyk,” and “Pokémon Detective Pikachu.”

When Ashwini learned that some castings were looking for a female actor for their show in 2018, she contacted her agent and had her registered for the auditions. She found out about her selection a week later, and it was the popular Netflix series “Sex Education.”
