The Bridgerton actress, 31, is renowned for her part as DC Jodie Taylor in Line Of Duty season four, and yes, we also had that ‘ahhh’ moment when we finally realised.

Claudia acted alongside Thandie Newton and Roz Huntley in the series and fans picked up on the fact that she was a real suck up to Huntley.

BBC One hilariously Tweeted at the time: “There’s brown-nosing and then there’s DC Jodie Taylor… #LineOfDuty.”


As well as Line Of Duty, the star has a range of other acting credits to her name, including Doctor Who, Vanity Fair, Lovesick and Porters.

In Bridgerton, Claudia plays the part of Eloise Bridgerton and is often in scenes with her on-screen best friend, Irish actress Nicola Coughlan.

However, the actresses have now become great friends in real life too it seems.

Nicola told SPIN recently: “Claudia and I had met prior to being cast as best friends.

"She's so sweet, she's so funny, so like getting to play that with her was easy."

And Claudia might not be the only actor you recognise in the hit Netflix series, with a range of other stars being cast in big shows before Bridgerton.

Matriarch Violet Bridgerton has played the part of a famous mum before.

Yes you may well recognise the actress as Tracy Beaker's mum Carly – what a throwback!

The actress, whose name is Ruth Gemmell, was well known for her role in the hit show and fans were quick to point out her acting history while binge-watching Bridgerton.
