Rege-Jean Page not returning to Bridgerton
Rege-Jean Page has dismissed claims he will return to ‘Bridgerton’.
The 34-year-old actor became a household name thanks to his portrayal of the Duke of Hastings in season one of the Netflix period drama, but called it quits before season two.
And although it was recently reported that he was in talks to return for the show’s third season, he insisted that there were no plans to do so, although he spent had a great time catching up with her former co-star Jonathan Bailey in Milan, Italy, recently.
Sharing a photo of the two of them together during Fashion Week, he wrote on Instagram: “The boys are back in town.
“(No, I’m not going back to the show by the way – the newspapers made up that one.).
“But we had the best and classiest catch up I’ve had in a while over great Italian coffee and sunshine.”
It was claimed over the weekend that the actor had spoken to producers about a possible comeback.
An insider said: “Rege-Jean has always been very open about his intention to leave the show after the first season and move on to other projects. But recently there has been a dialogue between him and the bosses of the series.
“Nothing has been officially agreed yet, but watch this space.”
Rege-Jean has also been mentioned as a possible candidate to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond.
But whatever happens, 2022 is shaping up to be an “exciting year” for the actor.
The insider explained, “Things are very up in the air right now, but it’s going to be an exciting year for Rege, no doubt.”
Meanwhile, Rege-Jean previously compared leaving ‘Bridgerton’ to his last day of school.
The actor explained, “You’re afraid of the unknown, thinking, ‘Oh my God, I’m never going to make friends as good as the ones I have,’ and then you do.”
