In Bridgerton, Regé-Jean Page plays Simon Basset, the 10th Duke of Hastings, who makes a pact with inexperienced noblewoman Daphne Bridgerton. Simon agrees to help Daphne restore her reputation and pretend to be in love with her. As time goes by, however, they realize that the make-believe relationship has potential. But so, what's the actor like in real life? Does he have a partner, or a wife?
So, does Regé-Jean Page have a wife?
In Bridgerton, Regé-Jean plays a womanizer with a rare ability to allure everybody he meets. However, as the actor revealed in a recent interview with The i, he and his on-screen character aren't all that similar.
"It's a huge compliment to know that people trust me with characters that they want an audience to fall in love with [...] But that person on screen isn't me."
"The idea of Prince Charming is wonderful, so long as you can figure out what's actually charming to us now," he added.
Born in Harare, Zimbabwe, in 1990, Regé-Jean moved to the U.K. aged 14. His acting career took off soon after he graduated from the Drama Centre London in 2013. In 2015, he landed Solanio's role in The Merchant of Venice, a play held at Shakespeare's Globe, London.
The mightily talented actor often takes it to Instagram to promote his latest projects, but he tends to share a lot less information about his personal life. His current relationship status is unknown.
Even though he had his first breakthrough in theater, Regé-Jean earned the most critical acclaim thanks to his TV show roles.
In 2015, he landed Guy Braxton's role in Waterloo Road, a cult-classic drama series created by Ann McManus and Maureen Chadwick. In 2016, he appeared in Roots.
"Roots was a massive responsibility because it is this foundational text in the States and it also resonates fairly strongly with pretty much any black community globally," the actor explained in a recent interview with The Guardian.
In 2018, Regé-Jean joined the cast of For the People, a legal drama featuring Hope Davis, Ben Shenkman, and the like. On the show, Regé-Jean played the newly hired assistant US Attorney, Leonard Knox.
Regé-Jean might be single at present.
The actor is notoriously secretive when it comes to his personal life. Although he frequently posts on Instagram, most of his updates concern work projects and media appearances. On occasion, Regé-Jean also shares photographs offering a rare glimpse into his day to day life, snaps taken at the beach, and on beautiful walks around the city and its leafier surrounds.
While he does take photos with his colleagues and fellow actors now and then, Regé-Jean has yet to share a picture featuring a romantic interest or a significant other.
Although his current relationship status is unknown, one thing is for sure: the brilliant actor possesses an innate ability to bring heartthrobs and a wide range of other characters to life with an equal amount of finesse.
Bridgerton premieres on Netflix on Friday, Dec. 25, 2020.
