“She was far better than I ever would have been.”

Turns out, Nicola Coughlan — who plays Penelope Featherington in Bridgerton — initially tried out for a very different Netflix role.

Yup, Nicola auditioned for the role of Robin in Stranger Things. If you need a quick refresher, Robin’s character joined the show in Season 3 as Steve’s Scoops Ahoy coworker. Of course, the part ended up going to Maya Hawke.

So, when we asked Nicola over Zoom about what roles she had auditioned for but didn’t get, she replied, “I auditioned for Stranger Things a number of years ago.”

“I auditioned to play Robin, Maya Hawke got it,” Nicola told BuzzFeed. “She was far better than I ever would have been.”

“It’s a good lesson to actors: Watch the stuff you didn’t get, because you’ll totally understand how it’s not personal.”

“You’re just right for some things, and you’re not right for other things,” she continued.

If you’re interested how Maya landed the role, she was originally recommended to casting director Carmen Cuba by another actor for a different project. In the words of Maya herself, “When the new season was being written, there was a part in it and I got to audition for it. I flew to LA, and I did some chemistry reads with Joe Keery, who’s just so wonderful and hysterical and lovely — and then it was history.”

Broadway Extends Audience Mask Mandate Through June

Published

on

Broadway will continue requiring audiences to mask up at least through June, the Broadway League announced today.

Audience masking protocols for July and beyond will be announced in June.

““We’re thrilled that nearly a quarter of a million people are attending Broadway shows weekly in this exciting spring season,” said League president Charlotte St. Martin in a statement. “As always, the safety and security of our cast, crew, and audience has been our top priority. By maintaining our audience masking requirement through at least the month of June, we intend to continue that track record of safety for all, despite the Omicron subvariants.”

The Broadway decision comes as New York City is seeing rising Covid-19 infections and hospitalizations. So far, Mayor Eric Adams has staunchly resisted re-instituting a citywide indoor mask mandate, saying at a press briefing Wednesday that the city has “done an amazing job” of informing people about vaccines and boosters.

The Broadway League is the trade organization representing theater owners and producers. The mask mandate was set to expire on May 31 before today’s extension was announced.

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker got some much-needed rest and relaxation as they prepare for their wedding in Italy on Saturday. The superstar couple were seen taking a relaxing boat ride together, and Kourt, 43, looked so in-love with Travis, 46.

Kourtney stunned in a vintage, white t-shirt from Travis’ band Blink-182. She also sported black leggings as they relaxed on the boat. Travis soaked in the sun by going shirtless, showing off his many tattoos. The couple both wore some black shades for the sunny outing. Kourtney’s kids were also seen lounging on the boat during the ride.

The pair are expected to celebrate their wedding with a ceremony in Italy on Saturday. The couple will reportedly say their vows at an intimate ceremony in a castle in Italy, per TMZ. After an impromptu Vegas wedding in April, the couple officially wed in a Santa Barbara ceremony, revealing that they got married with a series of photos, where they posed in a classic car with a “Just Married” sign on the back.

When the pair had said “I do,” in Las Vegas, it was spur of the moment, and the couple weren’t able to get a marriage license, so they had a simple ceremony with an Elvis Presley impersonator marrying them, even if it wasn’t official.

When the couple get married in Italy, it’s expected to be filmed for The Kardashians, and fans will get to live all the excitement of the ceremony. “They know that they are both reality stars now, as Travis has appeared on nearly every episode,” a source told HollywoodLife exclusively. “Their storyline is a central focus and after some consideration, they both feel that they can’t have a wedding and not allow it to air. Their engagement was filmed and appeared in season one. They both thought that it was very tastefully done.”
