Who is Regé-Jean Page dating? The Bridgerton star's girlfriend isn't Phoebe Dynevor
There's a new duchess in town - and it's Regé-Jean Page's new girlfriend.
While Twitter was inundated with speculation after Netflix viewers clocked the chemistry between Page and his co-star, Phoebe Dynevor, it appears that it never translated off-screen. So, who is the Bridgerton actor's girlfriend? We have the lowdown...
Does Regé-Jean Page have a girlfriend?
Regé-Jean Page appears to be a taken man after the heartthrob was papped embracing athlete and writer Emily Brown before catching a flight from London.
In pictures obtained by the Mail on Sunday last week, Page was seen embracing the part-time footballer close to the home they allegedly share in North London, per the publication,
Shortly after they hugged, Page got into a chauffer-driven car. He is believed to have been on his way to New York for a new shooting assignment.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly about his attitude towards romance in December, he said: "I'm a huge fan of romance as a concept.
"Romance is a wonderful thing and we need more of it in the world. Most things at their core are love stories anyway, whether they realise it or not. It's hilarious, the more seriously a show tries to take itself and detach itself from that, the more that the love story generally tends to come forward."
And speaking about how cultivated that on-screen energy with Dynevor, the 30-year-old told Ophrah Mag that it was formed over "hours and hours" of dance rehearsals. "I think when you spend that much time literally catching each other as you fall and flying through a room in each other’s arms, it’s a very, very efficient way to build an intimacy between performers.
"You have this space to flirt and communicate in private," he added. "Even though the eyes of the world are on you, it’s that little bubble of honesty between those two characters."
Who is Phoebe Dynevor dating?
Dyvenor was previously linked to recruitment executive Simon Merrill in 2017.
"Last year my boyfriend and I went around Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam. It was amazing. He’s half Thai," she told the Express of Merrill in 2017. "And we went to his family’s village. His grandma, aunt and uncle are still there, and it was a really incredible experience."
She then started dating actor Sean Teale. However, the pair split in 2018.
Has Bridgerton series 2 been confirmed?
According to a press release from Netflix, the series will resume production later in 2021. But, as of now, there is no official premiere date.
But given that it aired around Christmas time last year, we're likely looking at a December release.
Lady Whistledown (well, Netflix) took to Twitter in January to write: "DEAREST READERS, BREAKING NEWS… Bridgerton *will* return for a second season!"
Speaking about the opportunities for a follow-up, creator Chris Van Dusen told Entertainment Tonight: "We have an amazing sprawling cast of characters and amazing cast and that provides us opportunities to explore all kinds of stories for all these characters.
"And I think for Lady Whistledown specifically, it’s going to be really interesting for us to be able to play in that world now that we know who Lady Whistledown is."
What else has Regé-Jean Page been in?
While Bridgerton is Regé-Jean's breakout role, he started acting while he was still a teen.
He first had a small role in the British drama, Casualty. He then appeared in two episodes of the Channel 4 comedy, Fresh Meat.
The actor's first big role came when he appeared in Waterloo Road as teacher, Guy Braxton. He had a film role in the 2015 movie Survivor with Pierce Brosnan and Milla Jovovich. Following that, Regé-Jean appeared in Mortal Engines as Captain Khora.
In terms of American audiences, the 30-year-old may be known from his turn as Chicken George in the 2016 remake of Roots.
But before gracing our televisions, he and his brother were in a punk band. "As a teenager, the idea of running around, screaming at people was very appealing to me," he told The Fall Mag. "I found comfort in aggression, in breaking through false walls and challenging norms."
