Regé-Jean Page’s reason for leaving Bridgerton is pretty simple
Lady Whistledown may not be impressed.
Already in April 2021, Regé-Jean Page shocked the ton when he left Bridgerton after just one season as Duke Simon Basset. As for his reasoning?
“I signed up for a job, and I did the job, and then I did some other jobs,” he recently told Vanity Fair for the Hollywood issue’s cover story. “That’s it. That’s the story. I wish it was more glamorous than that.”
Page continued, “We’ve finished the story. The temptation would be to roll with the distractions and say, ‘Oh, well, the story was going really well, so we can kind of change that and invent some other stuff, I think.’ We never committed to that.”
After burning opposite Phoebe Dynevor In Bridgerton’s first season, the 34-year-old starred in the Netflix series The Gray Man.
