Who Is Regé-Jean Page, the Sexy Duke in ‘Bridgerton’?

Published

If you love a period drama that features longing glances, subtle flirtations, and someone’s mother fussing about marriage eligibility, then Bridgerton is absolutely for you. If you’re also so excited by the sound of Julie Andrews’ voice that, like me and Leslie Knope, you get “too hyper before bedtime,” then Bridgerton is for you. If you like shows with very sexy people playing other very sexy people, then Bridgerton is for you.

This show is full of attractive people, but there is one person in particular who’s really having a moment right now: Regé-Jean Page, who plays Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings, and love interest of London’s most eligible, Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor).

The two have a roller coaster of a relationship. We could get into a deeper analysis (and trust me, I will in a future article). To summarize, Simon and Daphne needed to go to therapy from pretty much the moment they meet. But this is a period drama, and people don’t talk about their problems. Instead, they go to dozens of useless, frivolous balls and focus on filling their dance cards. And we love it.

Simon’s issues aside, Page is definitely an actor to know. He’s the star of Bridgerton, and it’s clear he’s going to have leading-man potential for years to come. Here’s what you need to know about him.

He started acting in childhood so he could buy himself a Gameboy.

Page, who grew up in Zimbabwe and the U.K., told InStyle that he was a “musical, loud, bouncing-around-the-house” kid who started acting so he could afford a Gameboy. In an interview with Netflix’s Queue & A, he said he also wanted to be an explorer when he was young.

“That was my first idea of what would be a really great thing to do in the world: to discover unknown things and pick around in them and see what you could bring back home to go, ‘Look! The world is bigger than you thought it was,’ he said. “Then I discovered that would involve facing entirely too many very large spiders.”

You’ve definitely seen him in other film and TV projects.

Just last year, he appeared in Sylvie’s Love, a movie about a summer romance between an aspiring TV producer (Tessa Thompson) and a saxophonist (Nnamdi Asomugha), Page plays drummer Chico Sweetney. You might also know him from Shonda Rhimes’s legal drama For the People and the 2016 Roots remake. In the Queue & A interview, Page also said he played the Little Drummer Boy in a school production.

“I was the Little Drummer Boy in my school’s nativity play, and oh, how I played! Such drums, such playing! I clearly had a career in musical theater ahead of me and somewhere took a left turn and started getting all dour and serious and doing emotionally broken dukes.”

He’s got musical talent.

Page and his brother, Tose, have a musical duo called TUNYA. And you can hear Page’s vocal talents in the short film Don’t Wait, directed by Lanre Malaolu.

Here’s the description on the website: “Conceived in the midst of the long, hard summer of 2020, Lanre’s visceral choreography meets Regé-Jean’s swooning love song, and re-mixes it into an explosively physical, intensely personal journey—an intimate missive straight from the broken hearts of young Black men—battling through desolation, rage, confusion, and ultimately bruising vulnerability.”

It’s important for him to work on projects that show Black people being happy.

“It’s a relief to make the very easy decision to stop excluding people from our stories,” Page told ELLE.com in December 2020. “It’s not commonly done, but also, there’s no good reason for it not to be done.”

He also told InStyle that he’s all about taking part in projects that show Black joy, especially in historical fiction, which usually only features white people thriving.

“What happens in culture often is, you go back in time and only white folks are happy,” he says. “And you know what? We’ve all known how to smile since the beginning of time. We’ve all gotten married since the beginning of time. We’ve all had romance, glamour, and splendor. Representing that is incredibly important, because period drama for people who aren’t white shouldn’t mean only spotlighting trauma.”

He adds: “If we’ve endured white Jesus for this long, then folks can endure a Black duke.”

These 32 Face Serums Will Replace Your Monthly Facials

These 32 Face Serums Will Replace Your Monthly Facials


Whether your skincare routine consists of 15 steps or two, there is one product that’s non-negotiable: a face serum. Yes, minimalism is a thing. But so is having gorgeous, soothed skin that’s taken care of in the way it so desperately needs.

What Is A Face Serum?
So, what exactly is a serum? “A serum is usually a liquid or gel containing high concentrations of skin actives, which are able to penetrate deeper than other topicals [like moisturizers] with content occlusives that prevent deeper penetration,” explains board-certified dermatologist Dr. Marnie Nussbaum.

Why Do I Need Face A Serum?

This essential step offers more targeted results, potent formulations, and customization options. You’re never too young to start using a serum, Nussbaum shares, and they’re the best way to target specific skin concerns due to their high concentration and potency.

What Kind Of Face Serum Do I Need?

It’s important when choosing a serum to know which skin concern you’re hoping to target—most basic serums contain a combination of antioxidants, which will brighten the skin. Looking for something moisturizing? “A hydrating serum should contain hyaluronic acid and peptide,” Nussbaum says. “Hyluaronic acid keeps skin plump and glowing—and basically allows your skin to repair itself easier.” If anti-aging is your main concern, Nussbaum advises looking for a serum that contain retinols (which increase skin cell turnover), glycolic acid, and vitamin C.

How Do I Use Face Serums In My Routine?

Nussbaum recommends applying serum twice a day immediately after cleansing your skin to your face and neck. Since serums are so lightweight, they’re easy to layer, she says—apply yours before any SPF or makeup. Whether you’re already a superfan of serums or ready to try one for the first time, check out these options to help you get the skin of your dreams.
