Say goodbye to the Duke! Regé-Jean Page has denied rumors that he could return in new episodes of “Bridgerton”. The actor played Duke Simon Basset in season one, the romantic partner of the Bridgerton family’s eldest daughter, Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor).
Previously, Page had already clarified that he would leave the production to focus on other work, but even so, fans of the series were disappointed to see that the actor was not in the season 2. Last Monday (20), the actor was with Jonathan Bailey, who plays Anthony Bridgerton, at Milan Fashion Week, and took the opportunity to deny the rumors circulating on the internet.
“The boys are back in town”, wrote Paige in the caption of the photo in which he appears with his former co-star. “(No, I’m not going back to the show btw – the papers made that one up.) But we had the best, and most stylish, catchup I’ve had in a while over some truly excellent Italian coffee and sunshine,” continued.
The new season of “Bridgerton” will be based on the story of Penelope (Nicola Coughlan) and Colin (Luke Newton). Netflix has yet to announce the start of the recordings.
