Andoh’s older version of Lady Danbury has, as she tells Kate Sharma, “lived a life.” By the time we meet her in “Bridgerton,” she’s a widow and one great lady of society, bold and self-assured enough to intimidate virtually anyone but the Queen. Her life is touched by tragedy, such as when she watches her friend, Sarah Basset, die in childbirth, and Agatha ensures that Sarah’s son, Simon, later the Duke of Hastings, has a good education and a lifelong ally despite his terrible father. She also sponsors the family of her old friend, Mary Sharma, as they return to society. During the first few “Bridgerton” seasons, she essentially becomes an honorary member of their extended family.
