New Arrivals in Sanditon for Series 3

The third and final series of Sanditon will see new characters set to bring drama, laughter, and romance.

The new arrivals set to shake up the coastal resort include Lady Montrose (Emma Fielding, Years and YearsVan der Valk), the quintessential Austen mother who arrives in Sanditon with one objective: matches for her children, Lydia and Henry. Lydia (Alice Orr-Ewing, AndorA Very English Scandal) is an independent young woman who is not as eager for a match as her mother, and Lord Henry Montrose (Edward Davis, Emma) is charismatic and confident, but he holds a secret.

Rowleigh Pryce (James Bolam, New Tricks) is a wealthy, curmudgeonly investor who is interested in teaming up with Tom Parker on the seaside resort’s expansion. Their plans become complicated when Rowleigh runs into Lady Denham. Also new to Sanditon is Alexander’s brother, Samuel Colbourne (Liam Garrigan, CobraSmall Axe) – a lawyer, and a charming bachelor.
