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 onto 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.”
