Regé-Jean Page has broken the hearts of the followers of the series “Bridgeton” that debuted in December 2020 on the Netflix platform.
Although Jean Page has a career in acting dating back to 2004, it was his role as the Duke of Hastings on the show that earned him the admiration of an entourage of fans.

During the first season, the plot focuses on Simon Basset (the duke who plays Regé-Jean Page) and Daphne Bridgerton (played by Phoebe Dynevor), whose love is given to the delight of viewers.
However, despite the great success of the series, Regé-Jean Page has said goodbye to his character with an emotional message through Instagram in which he mentioned the privilege that it has been for him to participate in this project.
In turn, the series ‘own Instagram account released a statement signed by Lady Whistledown (the series’ narrator). In which they said goodbye to the character but encouraged viewers to stay tuned.

What is certain is that it is not the last relevant participation in which we will see him, since it is speculated that he has been selected to replace Daniel Craig in the next James Bond film, as well as it is believed that he could have some participation within the Marvel universe coming soon.
