Now, she'll step into the role of Francesca, who is described by Netflix as "a bit of a mystery within her chatty, extroverted family."

"Despite her reserved nature, she goes along to get along when it comes to social affairs," the description continues, "fortified with a dry wit and pragmatism that confound the fickle ton yet seem to draw attention when she least desires it."
