Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Duke

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Duke

Rege Jean Page Bridgerton Duke

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Duke. Born Rege JeanPage in 1990 in Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe. His parents were a Zimbabwean nurse and an English preacher, according to Square Mile(opens in new tab). When he was 14, Page and his family moved to London, and growing up in such diverse cultures has had a huge impact on his idea of home to this day.

 

Page has been open about his biracial identity and how being born to a mixed-race couple impacted him as a child growing up in Zimbabwe, where he’s said he was a “walking political statement.”

 

Lots of actors master multiple accents as part of their craft, but Page sees accents as a form of language and employs different accents at different times and with different people in his real life.

 

“My father spoke with something very similar to a 1920s newscaster type of English, and I learned that accent of power in post-colonial Zimbabwe. So I learned that, and I learned how to copy it, and I learned how to shift in and out of it, but also talk like my mother’s relatives in the village,” he said during an interview.

 

“Accents aren’t accents, they’re language … It’s almost like a code. Because that’s the key to who you are: it’s how you express who you are. And how you express who you are is how you speak.”

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Duke. Once Page decided to become an actor, he trained at one of the best drama schools in the world, the Drama Centre London, which is the alma mater for other top actors like Michael Fassbender, Tom Hardy, and Pierce Brosnan.

 

“It has a reputation for being overly intense and scary and that drew my attention right way,” Page explained to Variety. “I learned how to be light about my work while taking it serious.”

Shondaland fans might recognize Page from his turn in Rhimes’ short-lived legal drama For the People, which aired for two seasons on ABC.

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Duke. When he was cast in Bridgerton, Page immediately read The Duke and I, the first book in Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton series. And he loved it. “It is so incredibly page-turning and digestible and delicious,” he explained in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “I burned through it, and at moments, it burned through me.”

 

This means he’s more than ready to return to 19th century London the second Netflix gives the green light to the second season of Bridgerton. “I think there are a lot of good stories to be told in this world,” Page told OprahMag.com of potential future installments of the series.

 

“There’s a plethora of characters and each of those characters has cousins, uncles, and dogs, and I think people enjoy exploring all of those depths and nooks and crannies.”

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Duke. When asked about the secret behind his and Phoebe Dynevor’s sizzling on-screen chemistry, Page pointed to “hours and hours” of dance rehearsals they did for the show.

 

“I think when you spend that much time catching each other as you fall and flying through a room in each other’s arms, it’s a very, very efficient way to build an intimacy between performers,” Page told OprahMag.com.

 

He also said that considering the show’s 18th-century setting, the dance floor represented his character’s best chance to foster intimacy. “You have this space to flirt and communicate in private. Even though the eyes of the world are on you, it’s that little bubble of honesty between those two characters.”

He went on to study at Drama Centre London, graduating in 2013. Page appeared on the stage in London in The History Boys and The Merchant of Venice and starred in the final season of the British TV series Waterloo Road in 2015.

 

Regé-Jean Page made his U.S. debut in the following year, playing Chicken George in the History Channel remake of Roots. In 2017, Page starred in Shonda Rhimes‘ legal series For the People. It was canceled after two seasons in 2019. That same year he was cast in the lead role of Simon Basset in Rhimes’ period drama Bridgerton, which debuted on Netflix in December 2020.

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton. Bridgerton season 1 arrived on our screens in 2020, with 82 million households tuning in to watch the big-budget series that follows the fortunes of an aristocratic family living in London during the early 1800s.

 

Based on the bestselling historical romance novels of U.S. author Julia Quinn, the lavish show on Netflix boasts a star-studded cast of British stars, with Regé-Jean Page and Phoebe Dynevor playing the romantic leads.

 

Mary Poppins star Julie Andrews is the series’ narrator and well-known US producer Shonda Rhimes oversaw the project, which at the time of launching was billed as Netflix’s answer to Downton Abbey.

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton. Netflix’s official synopsis for the series reads: “Bridgerton follows Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), the eldest daughter of the powerful Bridgerton family as she makes her debut onto Regency London’s competitive marriage market.

 

“Hoping to follow in her parent’s footsteps and find a match sparked by true love, Daphne’s prospects initially seem to be unrivaled. But as her older brother begins to rule out her potential suitors, the high society scandal sheet written by the mysterious Lady Whistledown casts aspersions on Daphne.

 

“Enter the highly desirable and rebellious Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page), committed bachelor and the catch of the season for the debutantes’ mamas. Despite proclaiming that they want nothing the other has to offer, their attraction is undeniable and sparks fly as they find themselves engaged in an increasing battle of wits while navigating society’s expectations for their future.”

 

How many episodes of Bridgerton’ season 1 are there?

There are eight episodes in the first series of Bridgerton. Here is a list of all the episodes and what they’re called…

 

Episode one – Diamond of the First Water

 

Episode two – Shock and Delight

 

Episode three – Art of the Swoon

 

Episode four – An Affair of Honor

 

Episode five – The Duke and I

 

Episode six – Swish

 

Episode seven – Oceans Apart

 

Episode eight – After the Rain

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton. The eight-book series by Julia Quinn, who’s been described by some as ‘the Jane Austen of our era’ was the inspiration for the series. Set in the Regency Era that ran from 1813 to 1827, Quinn’s novels are largely about the Bridgerton family and their eight children’s romantic dalliances.

 

The first season of Bridgerton starts at the beginning of the first book of the series, titled The Duke and I.

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Simon

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Simon Basset performance in season one of “Bridgerton” turned him into the Regency romance’s breakout star.

 

But when the British-Zimbabwean actor was initially cast, he said many fans of the “Bridgerton” book series took issue with the fact that he didn’t match the character’s physical description in the novels.

 

In an interview with Variety, Page, 31, said readers of Julia Quinn’s best-selling romance series, which served as the blueprint for the Shondaland and Netflix production, questioned the decision to cast him as Simon, noting that he doesn’t have the “icy blue” eyes detailed in the author’s pages.

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Simon. The Brazilian “Bridgerton” book fans, however, immediately supported him, for which Page remains grateful.

 

“I’m going to shout out [the book’s] Brazilian fans specifically because they had my back before anyone else did,” he told Variety.

 

Page continued, “When everyone else was still passive-aggressively getting all knotted up because I didn’t have blue eyes, the Brazilians were there for me.”

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Simon. Shortly after “Bridgerton” premiered on Netflix in December, showrunner Chris Van Dusen’s eight-episode creation became the Streaming giant’s most successful series debut to date — streaming in over 82 million households within the first month of its release.

 

As reported by Deadline, “Bridgerton” occupied Netflix’s No. 1 spot in 83 countries, one of which was Brazil.

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Boxing

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Boxing. Bridgerton star Rege-Jean Page was “charming” as he took boxing lessons in Bath while filming the hit show, according to the man who trained him.

 

The star, who plays Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings in the Netflix drama, spent some time in the city while filming took place in 2019.

 

As shown in the series, Simon is a keen boxer and spars with professional boxer Will Mondrich, played by Martins Imhangbe in several episodes.

 

To make sure his portrayal was as realistic as it could be, Rege-Jean made sure he trained hard for the role.

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Boxing. While in Bath for filming he got in touch with Tom Crudgington, who co-runs Body Development based on Windsor Bridge Road.

 

Mr. Crudgington has 30 years of experience with Thai Boxing, MMA, and Karate which he has coached to international standard and trained Rege-Jean for four sessions in 2018.

 

He said: “His people got in touch with us and asked me if we could train him while he was filming in Bath.

 

“I have worked with celebs before like Spencer Matthews and Josie Gibson so wasn’t phased and we arranged to meet for a trial session.

 

“We had a little session called punch out which is a boxing-based fitness session and he loved it.”

 

Mr. Crudgington explained that Rege-Jean had already had some boxing training but wanted to learn more about martial art.

 

Mr. Crudgington, who has coached at an international level, said: “He wanted to learn from me what it was like to take a punch and deliver one – for reactions.

 

“He was really dedicated to learning it all and was a professional through and through, never late for sessions and super polite.”

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Boxing. Over the following sessions, the pair worked together on boxing and Mr. Crudgington said Rege-Jean was a “natural”.

 

He said: “He’s a very good looking chap according to the ladies at the gym and he was truly charming.

 

“He had such a way about him and carried himself really well, a natural.

 

“A good confident chap and I’m sure he’ll go on to be extraordinarily successful after making such a big mark in Bridgerton.”

 

Mr. Crudgington said he’d seen clips of the show but not yet viewed the whole thing saying he was excited to see the fight scenes.

 

He said: “He was so eager to learn all the different parts of boxing, not just physical but the psychological and emotional mindset fighters have to get into.

 

“He was so thorough and it was a really pleasurable few sessions, just a phenomenal guy to work with.”

 

Netflix has yet to confirm a second season of the show but with 65 million streams and counting our fingers are crossed.

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Duke Of Hastings

Rege Jean Page Bridgerton Duke of hastings

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Duke of Hastings. Netflix’s Bridgerton is a true gift to fans of Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton series of books. The first season lovingly adapts the series’s first installment, The Duke and I, while seeding future novels in with Easter eggs and narrative winks.

 

But maybe the best treat for Bridgerton book fans is the show’s leading man. Readers know Simon Bassett, the Duke of Hastings, as a devastatingly handsome rake whose cold exterior is armor protecting a sensitive soul and embarrassing speech impediment.

 

And that’s exactly how Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Duke of Hastings plays out, making the Zimbabwe-born actor the perfect Simon Bassett for Bridgerton.

 

Produced by Shonda Rhimes’s Shondaland, Bridgerton follows young Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) as she attempts to navigate the scandalous social scene of 1813 London.

 

Although she is immediately declared the season’s “incomparable” by both the Queen (Golda Rosheuval) and the mysterious gossip columnist Lady Whistledown (voiced by Julie Andrews), Daphne’s popularity soon plummets.

 

After her brother scares off legions of suitors, she is considered “desperate.” Her one prospect? The lecherous and awkward Nigel Berbrooke (Jamie Beamish). Daphne needs a miracle and it comes when she bumps into the Duke of Hastings.

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Duke of Hastings. The dashing Simon Bassett has ventured into London to settle his recently-deceased father’s affairs and take his place as the new Duke of Hastings.

 

He is aggressively intent on not falling in love, getting married, or siring children. While his godmother Lady Danbury (Adjoa Andoh) and Lady Bridgerton (Ruth Gemmell) believe him to be Daphne’s ideal match, Simon sees their meddling matchmaking scheme as an ironic opportunity.

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Duke. He proposes to Daphne that they pretend to form an attachment. This will, according to him, make her look attractive and unavailable.

 

Naturally, the plan works flawlessly, except for the part where Simon and Daphne develop real feelings for one another. (Tee hee!)

 

Now, much has been made of the fact that Shondaland has diversified the cast of Quinn’s books in a big way. Bridgerton depicts Queen Charlotte as bi-racial (which she may have been!) and imagines an alternate timeline where Charlotte inspired King George IV to raise Black members of society to titled positions such as “the Duke of Hastings.”

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Duke. What this means is that Netflix’s Simon Bassett isn’t a lanky rake with piercing blue eyes and floppy brown hair. He is the tall, dark, brown-eyed, and brown-skinned Regé-Jean Page. And holy shit it’s fantastic.

 

To be clear, Regé-Jean Page is fantastic as the Duke of Hastings. He possesses all of Simon’s inscrutable charm, rascally wit, and deep-rooted turmoil. As the show explains, Simon’s father was obsessed with securing his newly appointed title to the point that he callously ignored his own wife’s death on the childbirth bed to toast a male heir.

 

When Simon developed a stutter, his father rejected him outright. Only Lady Danbury came to the young boy’s aid and encouraged him to make himself excellent in all possible ways.

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Scenes. Regé-Jean Page opened up about the hardest scenes to film in his role as the Duke of Hasting in Bridgerton, and he’s took us by surprise.

 

In a recent interview for Netflix Queue the 31-year-old actor divulged about the trickiest scenes to execute and rather than reveal them to be the steamy all-over-the manor sex montage with his on-screen love interest Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), the hardest filming moments surprisingly involved the more subtle, family-friendly moments.

 

The actor revealed the most difficult scenes were the ‘very, very subtle barbs and hurt over the dinner table.

 

‘It’s not always the extreme things that are the hardest. I think everyone has these heightened emotional moments in them at all times; you’re just controlling it and keeping it in check,’ he noted.

 

‘When someone says something that you don’t get to blow up about, that you don’t get to cry about, you just have to take that sting right in the ribcage and express that through a flick of an eyebrow or through the way that you cut your peas.’

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Scenes. Page cited a particularly difficult scene involving sharing a meal with the Bridgerton family, during which his character is reminded of the pain of his past.

 

‘There’s a moment in the house of the Bridgertons where it’s ostensibly a quite calm, happy scene. I’m at dinner for the first time with this family. I really don’t want to be there, but you can’t say that’ he explained.

 

‘The kids are there and they’re all happy and playing and being accepted in exactly the warm and loving family that Simon never had. And that is never explicitly mentioned in the script in that moment.’

 

The actor added: ‘No one’s going to say it. But it is the biggest thing about that scene for him. Inhabiting that space is the most challenging but also the most gratifying part.’

 

Elsewhere in the interview, the former Harry Potter extra said that his favourite ‘snack’ on set is coffee. ‘I’m a being of caffeine when I work,’ he revealed. ‘It is a vice, but as far as vices go, I’ll take it. We had a very, very nice coffee van that had very, very friendly people in it. It was my escape spot at every given moment of the day.’

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Scenes. Earlier this year, Page and Dynevor – aka the internet’s new favourite fictional power couple – addressed rumours of a possible real-life romance between them.

 

‘I think everything you need to know is on camera,’ Page told Access. ‘That’s why we presented it so beautifully for you. All the sparks that flew off of the beautiful scripts that we were handed, and so I think that the sparky scripted material are more than enough.’

 

The actor has yet to reveal whether or not he does currently have an off-screen love interest, but whoever it may be is sure to receive both the fan’s and Lady Whistledown’s seal of approval.

Regé-Jean Page Interview

Rege Jean Page Interview

Regé-Jean Page Interview. Considering the size of the role Page’s character had in season 1, it’s understandable for there to be confusion among audiences regarding why the show’s breakout actor chose to leave the show.

 

After all, it’s not every day you see a lead actor walk away from a show after just one season — especially when their work in said season netted them a slew of critical acclaim. So why exactly did Rege-Jean Page choose to leave Bridgerton?

 

Why did Rege-Jean Page leave Bridgerton after season 1?

 

Regé-Jean Page Interview. Following the success of Bridgerton‘s first season and the breakout role he had as the Duke of Hastings, Rege-Jean Page’s exit from Bridgerton took many by surprise. While his sudden exit was shocking to fans, the truth is that Page only ever signed on to appear in one season of the show.

 

Regé-Jean Page Interview. When word first broke that Page would not return for season 2, it was revealed that the actor had initially only signed a one-year deal with the show. As he revealed in an interview with Variety, this was part of what drew him to the role in allowing him to come in, tell a complete story and then step away.

 

“[I thought] ‘That’s interesting,’ because then it felt like a limited series,” Page revealed. “I get to come in, I get to contribute my bit, and then the Bridgerton family rolls on.”

 

While Netflix attempted to get Page back for season 2, he ultimately choose to leave the series after seeing the value in completing the story he signed on to tell.

 

“I have nothing but excitement for ‘Bridgerton’ continuing to steam train off and conquer the globe,” Page confessed. “But there is also value in completing these arcs and sticking the landing.”

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Phoebe Dynevor

Rege jean page bridgerton phoebe dynevor

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Phoebe Dynevor. As Daphne Bridgerton and Simon Bassett, Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page stole the hearts of viewers across the globe. Their burgeoning romance was what made the first season of “Bridgerton” so popular, propelling it to the must-see series it has become. But what about the relationship between the actors who portray them?

 

When the series premiered in December 2020, rumors of an actual romance between Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page began to circulate.

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Phoebe Dynevor. The chemistry the two share on screen is palpable, so, unsurprisingly, many believed that Dynevor and Page could be an actual couple off-screen. But as quickly as those rumors started, they were fanned by both actors in various interviews.

 

Following the second season renewal of “Bridgerton” in early 2021, Dynevor was inevitably asked about the gossip. The actress promptly shut them down, explaining to You Magazine that their relationship has always been “strictly professional.”

 

“I’d love to say there was something between us, but no, it has always been strictly professional.” The actress went on to explain that “there was so much pressure on us to get it right that it was all about the work,” so her connection to Page was more of a “professional working relationship.”

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Phoebe Dynevor. As much as she gets on with her on-screen significant other, she’s relieved that it didn’t happen. “I’m glad for that, actually,” Dynevor explained. “It would be very complicated if it went further. I always hear about people falling in love with their costars … It’s yet to happen to me, but I’m intrigued.”

 

Page also addressed the rumors in an interview with Access (via YouTube), attributing their electric chemistry to the scripts. “I think everything you need to know is on camera.

 

That’s why we presented it so beautifully for you,” he explained. “All the sparks that flew off the beautiful scripts that we were handed, and so I think that the sparky scripted material are more than enough.”

Regé-Jean Page Love Scene

Rege Jean Page Love Scene

Regé-Jean Page Love Scene. Actor Regé-Jean Page was not prepared for the feeling he had when he learned of the many sex scenes in the Netflix hit series Bridgerton. The period series starred Page as Simon along with Phoebe Dynevor as Daphne, whose unlikely love story was the central focus of season one.

 

The series dove into the frustration of illicit love, family tensions, and the constraint of circumstance in the Regency period drama.

 

On the heels of Bridgerton’s initial success, the show was given a multi-season order. The series is based on Julia Quinn’s wildly popular period novels, each of which follows a different member of the Bridgerton family.

 

Regé-Jean Page Love Scene. The first season focused primarily on Daphne, the oldest daughter of the clan, who unexpectedly fell for Simon and him for her after they used one another to fend off any potential suitors by pretending they were in love.

 

Their ruse did not last long as feelings developed between them. By the end of the season, the couple appeared to be happy and had welcomed their first child.

 

As Regé-Jean told the Hollywood Reporter, though the romance was the big draw of the series, the more intimate moments weren’t exactly fun for him to watch.

 

“I think people were grateful for the intensity of the romantic aspects of Bridgerton; I’m not sure how grateful I was to watch it for myself,” he admitted. “It was overwhelming. But I think people were looking to be overwhelmed.”

 

Regé-Jean Page Love Scene. Regé-Jean added, however, that no one in his life, including him, was “sufficiently prepared” for exactly what it would be like.

 

“My family doesn’t want to be overwhelmed by my backside, specifically, too often, but they’ll take it on this occasion because everyone seems to be terribly happy,” he said.

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Leaving

Rege Jean Page Bridgerton Leaving

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Leaving. When Netflix announced that Bridgerton‘s breakout star Regé-Jean Page would not be returning for the show’s second season, fans were more than a little upset.

 

It didn’t matter that Page was never destined to be the show’s leading man for long: in the Bridgerton book series, each new novel focuses on a different Bridgerton sibling. Page’s Duke of Hastings, who married Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) in the first season, would have been a background player at best in the second.

 

Page opted to pursue his burgeoning movie career and (minor spoiler alert) does not appear at all in season 2, which debuts March 25. His absence is sorely felt. Page had the kind of movie star charisma necessary to keep the show’s often ridiculous plot afloat.

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Duke. The first season of Bridgerton featured some truly cringe-worthy storylines, like when Hastings educates his future bride, Daphne, about masturbation, a conversation that tested even the most dedicated costume drama lover’s appetite for a historical heroine’s naïveté.

 

The plot takes some truly wild twists once Hastings and Daphne marry and consummate their relationship after much flirtatious buildup. Hastings has sworn he will never sire an heir out of bitterness towards his dead father.

 

He has claimed he cannot bear children and Daphne, who has a pretty limited understanding of how sex works, assumes he’s physically incapable. Once they do begin to have sex, the rest of the story centers on how quickly Daphne will figure out that Hastings isn’t being forthright about what exactly needs to happen to conceive a child.

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Leaving. On the page, the story stretched the bounds of credulity and even taste—the young couple’s conflict culminates in a controversial scene in which Daphne tries to impregnate herself without the Hastings’ consent.

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Duke. The show did not dwell on the complexities of that encounter—or how the repressed nature of Regency England might facilitate such violations—and instead focused on the final reconciliation between husband and wife when they finally agree to have a child. But Page, with his smoldering smile, sold the story’s absurdities.

 

In Bridgerton’s second season, Hastings and Daphne have settled into parenthood—and into the background of the show, as the storyline shifts to focus on a love triangle between Daphne’s brother Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) and the Sharma sisters, the headstrong Kate (Simone Ashley) and the beautiful but bland Edwina (Charithra Chandran).

 

The writers blatantly model Anthony and Kate’s love story on the relationship between Darcy and Elizabeth in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Their mutual hate grows into love, and their heated arguments evolve into obvious foreplay.

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Duke. But because the show must concoct a reason for the two to stay apart, Anthony, a man who shuns emotion practically, decides to propose to the sister he does not love, Edwina. Everyone in the love triangle suffers.

 

Bailey does not have Page’s charm. He never quite pulls off the self-loathing leading man as skillfully as Page. It’s not entirely Bailey’s fault. As a character, Anthony is rather irksome. He worked well in the first season in a secondary role as the rakish, sexist, and overly protective older brother of Daphne.

 

But he carries all that baggage into his new role as a romantic lead—and sexism isn’t exactly seductive. The writers give Anthony a traumatic backstory to explain why he is a repressed robot who always yells at his siblings. But understanding why Anthony is so mean doesn’t make him any more pleasant to be around. Where Page smoldered in his misery, Bailey simply snaps.

 

Anthony’s staunch refusal to just marry the woman he loves zaps the series of all momentum. Kate is a mashup of Elizabeth Bennet and Little Women‘s Jo Marsh—the headstrong woman who defies all of Anthony’s patriarchal expectations.

 

But she possesses few other characteristics outside of her competitiveness. Her younger sister, meanwhile, is generally amiable but does not reveal any discernible desires or ambitions.

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Leaving. The flatness of these characters would not be felt as strongly if season 2 had presented another stand-out star. After all, Daphne was fairly bland at the beginning of her courtship with the Duke, all doe eyes and dutiful smiles. It didn’t matter. Regé-Jean Page could have generated sexual tension with an old-time lamp post.

 

And once the two were entangled with one another, Daphne became more complex. The controversial scene in which Daphne tricks her husband into having sex with her to completion to have a child may have rendered her a villain, but it also made her a more interesting character with flaws.

 

But Bridgerton’s secondary characters cannot save its second season. The other Bridgerton siblings are given shockingly little to do. Though season 1 hinted that Benedict Bridgerton (Luke Thompson) might be queer, Benedict only beds ladies in season 2, a decision that’s sure to frustrate fans hoping for a queer storyline in this race-blind version of Regency-era England.

 

The compelling quest of Eloise Bridgerton (Claudia Jessie) to discover the identity of Lady Whistledown, the writer behind the town’s gossip column, comes to a grinding halt for most of the episodes. And all the Bridgerton brothers continue to look and sound the same. It’s hard to tell them apart, which only further hampers Anthony’s mission to become a leading man.

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Duke. Bridgerton still boasts some underutilized performers itching for their chance to take center stage. Of the siblings, Bohemian painter Benedict and burgeoning feminist Eloise remain the most appealing.

 

Still, it’s difficult to imagine that Bridgerton will ever make quite the splash that the first season did without stars like Page who strike the perfect balance between steamy and silly.

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Duke Conclusion

Rege Jean Page Bridgerton Duke conclusion

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Duke Conclusion. Regé-Jean Page has confirmed via Instagram that he will not be reprising his role as the Duke of Hastings in season 3 of Bridgerton. “The papers made that one up,” he wrote, alongside a photo of him and Jonathan Bailey at Milan Fashion Week.

 

“But we had the best, and most stylish, catch up I’ve had in a while over some truly excellent Italian coffee and sunshine.”

 

Regé-Jean Page Bridgerton Duke Conclusion. Throughout season two, whenever Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) appeared, she would share a reason why the Duke didn’t accompany her, with viewers acutely aware it was because Page himself decided not to come back.

 

However, Page has teased the possibility for a potential cameo in future seasons, and that may actually happen in season three. According to the Sun, the British actor is in talks to return to Bridgerton.

 

According to one source, Regé-Jean was always very open about his intention to quit the show after the first season and to move on to other projects. But recently there has been a dialogue between him and the show’s bosses. Nothing has been formally agreed yet, but let’s keep our fingers crossed.
