The potential addition of Jonathan Bailey from Bridgerton to the cast of Heartstopper has fans ecstatic.

Fans enthusiastically shared images of the 35-year-old actor posing with a trans rights sign. Additionally, there are other pictures of him holding a book on Plato written by Jack Maddox. It is reported that these images were initially posted on an Instagram account with the username “jack__maddox,” which is now set to private.

The buzz surrounding the news is due to the presence of a particular character named Henry Maddox in a mini-comic called Heartstopper, created by Lauren James. This character catches Charlie's eye and becomes the subject of their affection. Based on the illustrations, Bailey seems to have the perfect look for a scholar, leading us to believe that the rumors may hold some truth. However, there has been no confirmation from an official source regarding the potential casting at this time.
