Who is Florence Hunt?
British actress Florence Hunt was born under the zodiac sign Aquarius on 2 February 2007 in England. She has just two acting credits, and is perhaps known best for having been playing Hyacinth Bridgerton in 17 episodes of the romantic series “Bridgerton” since 2020; it was created by Chris Van Dusen, stars Julie Andrews and Nicola Coughlan, and follows the lives of eight Bridgerton siblings from London, England. The series has won 14 of its 89 award nominations, including two Primetime Emmy wins for Outstanding Period and/or Character Hairstyling.
Florence is today quite active in the film industry and is currently shooting for the upcoming drama movie “Queen at Sea”, written and directed by Lance Hammer, and which follows a woman who’s moved with her teenage daughter to London to take care of her aging mother.
Education and early life
Florence is being raised alongside her sister Sara Cathcart in England, by their parents about whom not many details have been shared, because, Florence prefers to keep them away from media; her father’s believed to be an acting coach and her mother a professional dancer but this hasn’t been confirmed.
Florence fell in love with acting at a quite an early age and having noticed her passion, her parents enrolled her at Television Workshop in Nottingham, England. She appeared in a number of plays performed at the workshop and was 13 when she made her debut TV series appearance, playing Nimue in two episodes of the 2020 adventure fantasy “Cursed”, which starred Gustaf Skarsgard, Devon Terrell and Katherine Langford, and was created by Tom Wheeler and Frank Miller. It follows teenage sorceress Nimue who’s just met Arthur while on her quest to find an ancient and powerful sword, and the series was nominated for two awards.
Florence went on to appear in her first (and so far only) theatre play, playing Vera in a 2021 adaptation of “Force Majeure” at Donmar Warehouse.
