Madsen continued her celebration of Pride on her Instagram story, re-sharing her post with the text, “I’m proud!!!” accompanied by a red heart and rainbow emoji. This isn’t the first time Madsen has been open about her sexuality. In 2023, she posted a series of rainbow-themed photos with the caption, “Bi the way…. Happy Pride month,” and the hashtag “bipride.” The images included texts like “bi af” and “Girls love girls and boys and love is not a choice,” as well as “Bisexuals are not ‘confused.'”

In addition to her personal life, Madsen’s character on “Bridgerton” has also been a topic of discussion. In a recent interview, Madsen addressed the mixed reactions to her character, Cressida Cowper. She acknowledged that while some fans love to hate her character, she sees it as a sign that she’s doing her job well. “It makes me feel like I’ve done my job right,” she said. “I really don’t take those things personally. But I like it when people who I meet have appreciated the show. Yeah. That’s always lovely.”

Madsen also hinted at some exciting developments for her character in the upcoming episodes of “Bridgerton.” She teased that there may be “twists and turns” in store for Cressida, suggesting that viewers will get to see a more human side of her character. “The mask is falling off Cressida. She’s becoming a human being. No, we’re getting to see her human side and why she is the way she is,” she said. “And yeah, that every mean girl has something beneath her. If we quote ‘mean girl’ as everyone likes to call her.”

The actress’s openness about her sexuality and her character’s development on “Bridgerton” have made her a beloved figure among fans. Her recent Instagram post has only strengthened the bond between her and her followers, who have shown their unwavering support for her.
