Sanditon Season 2 finally arrived on March 20, 2022, and four episodes have already aired. How time flies! Despite the fact that the fans of the series welcomed the 2nd season warmly, they were also disappointed not to see Charlotte and Sidney together. As you know, a lot of water has gone under the bridge, and we must now get used to seeing Charlotte without Sidney. As the main character, though, Charlotte seems she still has lots of things to experience in Sanditon.
Sanditon Sidney – Theo James
Theo James, a 37-year-old handsome actor, plays the character of Sidney Parker in Sanditon. The young actor is best known to the general public for his role as Kemal Pamuk, an Ottoman Embassy attaché, in another Masterpiece PBS show, Downton Abbey. However, James has appeared in a number of films and television shows, including Divergent (2014), Netflix’s hit fantasy drama The Witcher, and the dark comedy series The White Lotus, to name a few. We should add that he is a brilliant actor, and the films and TV shows in which he has appeared are well worth watching.
James’ performance in Sanditon was also outstanding, and his portrayal of Sidney left a lasting impression on the audience. The majority of Sidney’s fans adored him for his charm and kind heart, regardless of how rocky he appeared at times. Sidney is also the family’s black sheep, being isolated, arrogant, and underappreciated. In the 1st season, he is Charlotte’s romantic interest.
Charlotte Heywood is played by the thriving actress Rose Williams in Sanditon. So far, the 28-year-old actress has been in a number of films and TV shows, most particularly in historical and period dramas such as Medici and Reign. Williams has also joined the cast of Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris, a period drama, which is set to premiere on July 15, 2022.
Charlotte Heywood is an authentic young woman who, due to an accident, had to move to the small English town of Sanditon. She is sensational and free-spirited, which is why she wants to get to know the locals and become one of them. The town’s greedy inhabitants, though, as well as their complicated relationships, shock her. Meanwhile, she meets Sidney Parker, one of the Parkers’ sons, and the two develop a romantic interest in each other. It isn’t an easy-peasy lemon squeezy for them to be together, though.
Charlotte and Sidney Love Story
There were various external factors that influenced Charlotte and Sidney’s relationship, and it was extremely challenging for them to handle it no matter what. Despite this, we, the fans, wanted a happy ending for the love story of Charlotte and Sidney. The 1st season finale, on the other hand, caught us off guard and broke our hearts.
Sidney married rich widow Eliza Campion as a result of his brother’s financial difficulties. In addition, Theo James announced that he will not be returning for Season 2. As a result, Sidney’s relationship with Charlotte came to an end. Charlotte was completely in love with Sidney, and his decision to marry someone else devastated her. Despite this, we had a ray of hope that Sidney would return to Charlotte before we found out he was killed at the start of the 2nd season. The couple has been through a lot, but it appears that they are not meant to be together, which is heartbreaking.
Charlotte returns to Sanditon after Sidney’s death. Nevertheless, she manages to put herself together in a short period of time. She might even be ready to move on to a new chapter in her life and new relationships! There are two suitors for her, the mysterious Alexander Colbourne (played by Ben Lloyd-Hughes) and the war hero Colonel Francis Lennox (played by Tom Weston-Jones). After all, Charlotte is the main character in this story, and she has to move forward in order for us to see more adventures.
