Regé-Jean Page stole our hearts as Simon Basset in Netflix’s «Bridgerton.» But he was making waves long before that. The 34-year-old actor burst on to our TV screens playing a hapless teacher in BBC One’s «Waterloo Road.» In fewer than 10 years, he’s gone from the world of British television to Hollywood, earning a supporting role in Peter Jackson’s adaptation of «Mortal Engines,» as well quite a big role in the Emmy-nominated revival of «Roots,» which was watched by a whopping 6.9 million American viewers.
Up next, Page is starring in the star-studded «Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves» movie, alongside Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, and Hugh Grant. Of his role in the forthcoming action-comedy, Page told «Today» that «the hardest part about this movie was not cracking during the takes.»
«It’s a fun movie. It’s about adventure. It’s got a little bit of ‘Princess Bride’ in there, it’s got a little bit of that Marvel,» Page explained. «It’s about having somewhere where you can with your friends, just hang out, and have a good time.»
