“There were so many crazy days that I was able to do,” the UK native exclusively says Morning honey. “I was dressed in medieval clothes with Kevin Hart in the middle of a forest, I performed choreographed contemporary dance choreographed by Mandy Moore. There are so many things I’ve done and places I’ve been. I’m very happy with where I am right now walking the Warner Brothers lot and standing in front of a live audience every Friday night. I couldn’t think of anywhere otherwise I’d rather be!”

The show, which premiered on NBC in January 2023, has taken off, and the brunette beauty especially loves being in front of a live audience every week. “I feel relieved,” she says of the fan reaction to the showwhich “follows Judge Abby Stone, as she presides over the night shift of a Manhattan courthouse and tries to bring order to her crew,” reads the description for IMDB.

“For as long as we’ve been making it, we’ve been hoping that the original fans of the show would be happy with our version,” he notes. “Getting the incredible response is amazing. People feel like they’re watching a continuation instead of a whole new version of the show. It’s really fun to step into someone else’s shoes and play a character that could easily be disliked.

“It’s so funny that I almost have to back out a bit because I’m so excited. All I ever wanted to do was comedy because who doesn’t want to laugh all day, every day? Sometimes I need to focus on keeping the character while hitting the punchlines and making people laugh.”

Since de Beaufort has been in this business for a while, her main goal “as a woman on set is to always make sure that she portrays everything equally,” she says. “If we’re on set and I notice that we have more men than women in terms of supporting actors, I’ll hint and say, ‘Hey, what if we had more female bailiffs?’ It’s important to stand up and make sure that we’re all striving to represent the world as it is on screen. It’s something I do and always will – and our showrunners and writers are so receptive and thoughtful about those things as well.”

As for what the future holds, the singer would love to appear as Roxy Chicago on Broadway. “My dad was growing up in the West End so I got to see a lot of that,” he says. “I’ve always loved singing and dancing and acting and I love the audience – and I love the musical Chicago, so it’s on the wish list.”

Court at night airs Tuesday nights on NBC.
