Findlay was on the show Harlots since it first began in 2017. She played Charlotte Wells, the quirky woman with a job as a sex worker in the mean streets of 18th century London. She lived her best life, doing whatever she pleased. It worked for her character and made her a beloved fan-favorite.

Audiences were shocked and in disbelief at this most recent season when Charlotte is pushed from a third story balcony and plunges to her death. No one saw it coming and the characters are still reeling with grief in the series. She was a main character and a source of strength for the women on the show.

Playing Charlotte Wells changed Jessica Brown Findlay forever

IndieWire spoke with Findlay about her character’s very sudden death. Fans are still mourning the loss of Charlotte.

“Within seconds she goes from being full of life to on the edge of death,” said Findlay. “Seeing how she fights for some form of peace, right to the end, pushing against the violence of the world, of the men who rule it, her death acts as a very stark reminder that not all stories end the way we wish they did.”

Playing Charlotte changed Findlay’s life, and she has a new outlook on a lot of things after playing the character. “Charlotte helped me find my confidence and my joy again,” said Findlay. “She taught me there is nothing wrong with being bold or loud or broken. And as such, each person that came into her world touched mine. Because I was free. It’s wild how much three years can do when you let yourself dive into a character like that. She changed my life.” Findlay is a very talented actress who is sure to grace our screens again very soon in her next venture.
