In one of 2021’s most devastating silver screen twists, breakout Bridgerton heartthrob Rege-Jean Page announced that he wouldn’t be returning to the record-breaking Netflix drama—but he’s got more projects in the works, according to Variety. Covering the entertainment magazine’s latest issue, Page revealed that he’s set to star in upcoming films like “The Grey Man” and “Dungeons and Dragons.” When questioned about his Bridgerton exit, the actor stated that he’d be open to another series, as long as he isn’t pigeonholed in his characters—and is looking forward to the future. “I’m pleased that I’ve taken a couple of good first steps into what seems to be an ever-widening pool of possibility, and long may that continue,” Page said.
