The number that Reggie Jane Page rejected to return to the second season of “Bridgerton”.
It was recently revealed that Rege-Jean Page will never play Simon again in Season 2 of The Bridgertons. Everything indicates that the actor did not give up the novel for economic reasons, since it was revealed the number he was offered to appear in new episodes and that he was rejected.
The Hollywood Reporter states that Netflix offered the actor $ 50,000 to appear in one episode, an offer he turned down.. The post attributes this decision to the fact that the interpreter “is focusing on his initial film career”. Page will soon appear in The Gray Man alongside Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans, as well as starring in the new Dungeons and Dragons movie alongside Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez and Hugh Grant.
Added to these projects are rumors that The British may be the new James Bond after Daniel Craig’s departure. Speculation also indicates that he may join the Marvel Cinematic Universe to replace the late Chadwick Boseman as the lead in the Black Panther sequel.
Paige originally signed a one-year deal, but the idea was to get back in a second installment alongside Phoebe Dynefor. Creator Chris Van Dossen previously said, “I would like to be able to see them again and at the same time explore the other brothers and sisters in the family,” a wish that was ultimately not fulfilled by the actor’s decision.
The actor’s departure from the series was revealed on Twitter. “With our eyes focused on Lord Anthony Bridgerton’s search for the Lord, we must say goodbye to Reggie Jane Page, who played the Duke of Hastings victorious. We will miss the actor’s presence in front of the camera, but he will always be part of the Bridgerton family,” you can read in the post.
