A dedication to Carole Prentice is shown in “Bridgerton” immediately after the final scene of Season 2. Prentice helped prevent the spread of the virus onset – and died at just 61.
Shooting series is always exhausting: the working days are long and time is short. Season two of the Netflix hit “Bridgerton” was created under particularly difficult conditions: it was shot in the midst of the corona pandemic that is rampant around the world. Care had to be taken on the set to ensure that nobody got infected. Carole Prentice, who is honored with a dedication at the end of the eighth and final episode, worked on the new episode “Bridgerton” as “Covid-19 coordinator”.
Carole Prentice: Contributor and “Bridgerton” fan
Not much is known about exactly what Carole Prentice did on the Bridgerton set. Given the job title, it’s safe to assume she helped maintain the numerous safety precautions—masks, tests, shielded areas. The British Newspaper metro spoke to Sebastian Prentice, the son of Carole Prentice, who died in January 2022 at the age of 61 as a result of an operation.
“It was great to see the close friendships she has formed in such a short time on the crew. She was a huge ‘Bridgerton’ fan herself. She was so excited to be able to work on it,” Sebastian told Prentice metro.
Several people from the “Bridgerton” crew are said to have attended a memorial service in honor of the late Carole Prentice. She previously worked as a life coach and as a producer. Before “Bridgerton” she was involved in the action crime thriller “Momentum” with Morgan Freeman and Olga Kurylenko and “Star Trek Beyond”.
