While yes, we are totally going into season 3 of Bridgerton as totally Polin stans, there is someone who is coming into the marriage season that is certainly shaking things up and turning heads. That is none other than Lord Debling, a man of many secrets who seems to be interested in Penelope Featherington. And while we do think we know how this is going to end, that doesn't mean that he's causing quite a stir in the ton.

Here's everything you need to know about Lord Debling in Bridgerton season 3.

First and biggest question: Who is Lord Debling?!

Lord Debling is another one of the eligible bachelors out on the marriage mart who, despite his great title, has been getting some turned heads due to the fact that his job keeps out of society for sometimes years at a time. He is a vegetarian due to his love for animals and is often out exploring and helping to keep several from going into extinction.

We first meet him in episode 1 where he speaks to Penelope after she eats a giant scoop of ice cream. He makes it clear that he doesn't care what others thinks and also surprises her by flirting with her a bit. In episode 3, it's clear that the others are starting to gain interest in him and even Cressida starts to seek him out to please her parents.

In episode 3, it's clear that he has more of an interest in Penelope and by episode 4, it is revealed that he plans to propose to her. He notes that while he might not be seeking a love match, Penelope would make a good match for him as she is fulfilled in other ways. However, he finds out that the reason why she likes to sit by the window is so that she has a good spot to see the Bridgerton family and Colin, which makes him rethink proposing to her.

Who plays Lord Debling?

Sam Phillips is playing Lord Debling and this is not his first time being on a Netflix show. He was previously on The Crown, but this is his biggest role yet.
