Why Regé-Jean Page’s Bridgerton Exit Might Not Be As Devastating As You Think

Simon and Daphne do occasionally pop up in later books, but they don’t really have storylines of their own. In the show’s official announcement of Page’s departure, Lady Whistledown revealed that Daphne will “remain a devoted wife and sister, helping her brother navigate the upcoming social season.” That doesn’t sound to us like the Duke would have had much to do, or at least not much to do in terms of romance. 

Page, meanwhile, is busy as can be. Season one of Bridgerton made him a star, and he quickly landed two high-profile projects. He’s got a mysterious part in the Dungeons & Dragons movie and, most upsettingly, he’s starring alongside Chris Evans, Ryan Gosling and Ana De Armas in the Netflix movie The Gray Man. That’s such a good, attractive cast that we might actually not survive it! 

So fear not, dear reader. Season two of Bridgerton will be filled with plenty of other good-looking people getting naked to orchestral arrangements of pop songs and Page will be back on our screens in no time. We will all be fine, at least until The Gray Man comes out and we all simply pass away.
