Following in the footsteps of John Travolta, Shelley Long, Misha Barton, David Caruso and other TV stars who left their hit shows to stardom on the big screen, it has been announced today that breakout star reggae-Jean Page Season 2 Netflix’s hit Shandaland period drama will not return for Bridgerton. The Duke of Hastings is officially saying goodbye, as Reese-Jean Page demonstrates some blockbuster film possibilities for the future.
After Shondaland made the announcement with Netflix, reggae-Jean Page bid farewell to Instagram herself. The news was first revealed in a statement by Lady Whistledown, stating the following.
“Dear readers, while all eyes turn to finding a Viscount to search for Lord Anthony Bridgeton, we bid for Reg-Jean Page, who used to play the Duke of Hastings so brilliantly. We remember Simon’s presence Will. Part of the Bridgerton family. Daphne will remain a devoted wife and sister who will help her brother navigate the upcoming social season and what he has to offer – be able to bear more intrigue and romance than my readers Could. “
Bridgerton Julia Quinn is based on a series of novels, in which the story of the Duke of Hastings is mostly wrapped up in the first book, ‘The Duke and I’. Reese-Jean Page knew that his time in this huge story was limited, so it did not come as a shock to the actor when he was not brought back, although his character has become extremely popular with audiences.
Page acknowledges that his short-term commitment to play the role of The Duke of Hastings added to the appeal of taking the job, although he did not see his character as such a breakout hit. The actor had this to say to Variety.
“It’s a season arc. It’s a beginning, middle, end – will give us a year. [I thought] ‘It’s interesting,’ because then it felt like a limited series. To get me in, get me to make my contribution and then roll over the Bridgerton family. “
The actor states that Bridgeton was conceived as a fantasy. Each book in the series is dedicated to a different sibling love story. And it provides ample opportunity for yet another young up-and-coming actor to break through and find fame as Page did with his role as Simon.
“One of the different things about this [romance] The genre is that the audience knows that the arc is complete. They know that you can tie people up in an emotional knot because they have the assurance that we are going to come out and we are going to get married and have children. “
Reese-Jean Page was contracted for only one season of the hit Netflix drama. Simon’s story with Daphne comes to its conclusion, their love story ending with the birth of their first child. Page says about leaving the show.
“I have nothing but enthusiasm Bridgerton Continuing the steam train and conquering the globe. But there is also value in completing these arcs and sticking the landing. “
Netflix reports that 82 million families have watched Bridgeton since the season debut on Christmas Day. The reggae-jean page posted a nice picture on Instagram, which you can see below with a special farewell message.
“A Lifetime Ride. It’s an absolute pleasure and a privilege to be your duke. Joining this family – not only on screen, but off screen as well. Our incredibly creative and generous cast, crew, outstanding fan – this Everything is beyond anything I could imagine. Love is real and will just grow. “
Shonda Rhimes, who signed a major deal with Netflix and oversees the popular series, also gave her Duke a goodbye message. He had to say that about losing such a prized member.
“Remember: Duke has never been there. He’s just waiting to binge again. #SondalandMenOnNetflixAreForever
