She will be presented with the award at the festival`s opening ceremony on June 14.

The Monte-Carlo Television Festival takes place in June in the Principality of Monaco at the Grimaldi Forum, under the Honorary Presidency of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco.

The actress has been in several high-profile Hollywood films, including a crucial supporting role in Disney`s recent live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid and a main role in Amazon MGM Studios` forthcoming film Picture This. Ashley will resume her role as Kate Sharma in Bridgerton`s highly anticipated third season, which premieres in May.

“We are extremely proud to have created a special award at our Festival to highlight a new talent on the international stage,” Cecile Menoni, executive director of the Monte-Carlo Television Festival, said in a statement. “Simone shot to global fame in Shonda Rhimes` hit show Bridgerton on Netflix and her exceptional screen presence makes her a very worthy winner.”
