Director Julie Anne Robinson says that she never intended to make Regé-Jean Page into an international sex symbol, which he has become ever since the series debuted on Netflix back on Christmas day.

Robinson, who directed both the first and the sixth episodes of Bridgerton Season 1, told Deadline in a new interview, “It’s interesting about Regé — I hope he is not offended by this, but I never saw him as a sex symbol. I always saw him as a serious actor, very committed, a caring professional. And now look at him, I mean goodness me. It’s incredible. I hope he is the next James Bond.”
