Bridgerton news and updates reveals before this year began there’s a very good chance that you never heard the name, Regé-Jean Page. Two weeks into the year, and his name is making headlines everywhere, thanks to his role as Simon Basset on the hit Netflix series, Bridgerton. Here are five things you need to know about this handsome and very talented actor.
#1 Regé-Jean Page’s Background
There’s a good reason why Regé-Jean Page is so ridiculously good looking: he was born to Zimbabwean mother who was a nurse and an English father who was a preacher. He also says that he’s lived in so many places in his life, that it’s helped shape his perspective on the world. He told Interview Magazine, “But throughout that period my family was rather spread out—I have family in South Africa, Australia, Sweden, Grenada, Florida – so you make put stops and you grow your perspective.
#2 Playing Bridgerton Simon Basset
While there’s no doubt that the world is certainly falling for Regé-Jean thanks to his role on the hit Netflix series, the actor recently opened up about his character, Simon Basset and the importance of diversity and inclusivity in the period drama genre. He told Eqsuire in an interview, “I think it’s immensely important for people to be able to see themselves at their highest elevation. To see that you are worthy of love, romance, glamour, and status.”
#3 He Was In Hogwarts
If Regé-Jean Page looks familiar, it’s because this isn’t his first time in front of the cameras. While there’s no doubt that Bridgerton is what has helped make him a household name, the talented actor was also in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1. But if you blink, you might have missed him as he had an uncredited role as a wedding guest.
#4 His Personal Life
While there is certainly a lot of that we don’t know about Regé-Jean Page just yet, it’s without a doubt that the internet is going to do what it does best by digging up everything there needs to be known about this handsome actor. What fans can’t help but wonder is if Regé-Jean is dating his co-star, Phoebe Dynevor IRL. He told Access Hollywood, “I think that everything you need to know is on camera, and all the sparks that flew come off the beautiful script that we were handed. So I think that the sparky-words scripts and material are more than enough.”
#5 He Might Be The Next James Bond
While Regé-Jean has only been a household name for one hot minute, there’s already speculation that he might be the next (and the first man of color) James Bond. In fact, many Bridgerton fans are swearing up and down that the actor would be a perfect fit for Daniel Craig’s replacement. While the producers of the film series are yet to respond to all of the hype, it’s without a doubt that fans from both sides of the pond are certainly keeping their fingers crossed (we know we are!).
