Rege-Jean Page Says His Bridgerton Character Was “Kind-Of Horrific”

Rege-Jean Page has officially given his blessing for Bridgerton to recast him in his break-out role as Simon, The Duke of Hastings, in Netflix’s hit TV Show, Bridgerton. 


Rege-Jean Page loves his character Simon but is happy to leave him in the past.



In an interview with Variety Magazine at the premiere of his new film, The Grey Man, Page told the interviewer that he hadn’t watched Season 2 yet.



As for coming back to the show as a fan-favorite, The Duke of Hastings? That is not happening. Page confirmed that he is not returning to the show and said that Netflix is free to recast him if they choose, “They are free to do as they like.”


He further continued by saying that “Simon was kind of horrific.”


He is thrilled with how his character’s redemptive arc- The Duke of Hastings starts the season as arrogant, rude, and overwhelmed with demons from his past. The fact that so many people enjoy the character, said Page, is a credit to the writing and how they showed his character’s redemptive arc.





Page, who was the series breakout star in Season 1, left the show after the first season and was not featured in the series season 2.
