Is Bridgerton’s Regé-Jean Page dating anyone? Or is he married?
The truth is that it’s unclear whether Regé-Jean Page is currently dating anyone, but he definitely does not have a wife - so there's still a chance for all the fans of that spoon scene.
But speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Regé-Jean Page admitted that he’s softer and more open to romance than his fictional counterpart, Simon.
He said: “I'm a huge fan of romance as a concept. Romance is a wonderful thing and we need more of it in the world. Most things at their core are love stories anyway, whether they realize it or not. It's hilarious, the more seriously a show tries to take itself and detach itself from that, the more that the love story generally tends to come forward.”
Speaking to Oprah Magazine, he also explained the romantic power of the held gaze ballroom dancing scene we see between the duke and Daphne in the show. "You have this space to flirt and communicate in private. Even though the eyes of the world are on you, it's that little bubble of honesty between those two characters," Page said.
A few years back rumors were sparked that the 30-year-old actor was dating actress Antonia Thomas (who starred in the comedy-drama series Misfits), after the pair were spotted on the red carpet together.
Regé-Jean Page and Phoebe Dynevor: are the two dating?
We love it when the actors playing a fictional couple end up together in real life, but sadly there’s no evidence to suggest the duo are together. In fact, in a recent interview the pair did with Access Hollywood, Regé-Jean insinuated that the two were close but were only romantic on-screen.
"I think that everything you need to know is on camera. All the sparks that flew came off the beautiful scripts we were handed," he explained. "So I think that the sparky words, scripts and material are more than enough."
The interviewer then made the comment, suggesting the two were actually together even though they were joining the zoom interview from different locations. Continuing the joke, Regé-Jean responded: "We're playing footsie under here."

What else has Regé-Jean Page been in?
Acting was just a creative hobbie for Regé-Jean until he discovered the British National Youth Theatre whilst at university, where he was studying sound engineering. According to an interview he did with Interview back in 2016, the star - who is the second youngest of four siblings - was also in a band with his brother. "We were writing loud, angry, righteous guitar music and screaming at people with various colors in our hair,” he told the magazine.
After working in theatre at the start of his career, Regé-Jean turned to TV and starred in Waterloo Road in 2015 - a show which also marked the beginning of Phoebe Dynevor’s acting career. You might also recognise him from other British TV shows, including Casualty and Fresh Meat.
In 2016, Regé-Jean went over to the US to star in Roots (a remake of the 1977 miniseries with the same name), before being cast in Shonda Rhimes’ legal drama For The People.
He’s also appeared in the film Mortal Engines and stars with Tessa Thompson in Sylvie’s Love.
