"Penelope, I think, has some time to wait before she gets involved," Coughlan said. "It's safe to say she's still a wallflower. She's in business lady mode."
Coughlan added on Monday that taking the lead next season was "scary" but she was "known for a very long time".

"I've known about two weeks of filming season two, so I've had a lot of time to adjust," Coughlan said. "But then last night when they said, 'The news is coming out. You can talk about it,' I said, 'I don't want to. I'm too scared.' When I say it [out loud], it becomes real."

"Like Lady Whistledown, I've kept a secret for quite some time and I can confirm to all of you that Season 3 is Colin and Penelope's love story," Coughlan said. "I kept this secret for two weeks in Season 2. This is the first time I say it here.”
Bridgerton teased Penelope and Colin's chemistry early on in Season 1 as the pair's friendship continues to grow.
Though they shared a few sparks last Season 2, Penelope overheard Colin telling a group of friends that he "would never dream of wooing her."
