Phoebe Dynevor Reveals What 'Bridgerton' Co-Star Rege-Jean Page Smells Like

Phoebe Dynevor is opening up about working with Rege-Jean Page on Bridgerton.

The 25-year-old Daphne Bridgerton actress spoke with Glamour in a new profile and shared that Rege was the “perfect Simon.”

“He’s very polite and gentlemanly and all the things that Simon is…” Phoebe continued. “Well, Simon’s a lot more than gentlemanly and polite. But Regé definitely had that composure of a Regency man. I saw it straight away.”

She also says that she has learned a lot from working with Rege so closely on the Netflix show.

“I think we worked really well together, and I learned a lot from him. We have different acting styles, so we bounced off each other in that respect,” she says. “We both were on the same page about the characters and what their relationship was. I loved working with him.”

A big question that Phoebe is getting a lot with many of her interviews about Bridgerton is what Rege smells like, too.

“Why have so many people asked me that?” she mused in the interview. “He smells really, really nice. He never, ever had bad breath, and he doesn’t smoke or anything like that.”

Phoebe added, “We both drink a lot of coffee, so sometimes we both smell like that, which was fine. He’s unscented in a good way.”

Previously, Rege opened up about how coffee was his “vice” on the set of the show.

“I’m a being of caffeine when I work. It is a vice, but as far as vices go, I’ll take it,” he recently told Netflix Queue. “We had a very, very nice coffee van that had very, very friendly people in it. It was my escape spot at every given moment of the day.”

'Bridgerton' Director Talks About How They Found Regé-Jean Page & Phoebe Dynevor

Julie Anne Robinson, the director of the Bridgerton pilot, is opening up about how they found the show’s leading actors, Regé-Jean Page and Phoebe Dynevor.

Robinson previously worked with Shondaland when she directed episodes of Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, and Scandal. She also directed the pilot of The Catch and was an executive producer on that show.

In an interview with Deadline, Robinson said she worked closely with Shonda Rhimes on casting.

For Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings, Regé was always the top choice. He previously was on the Shondaland series For the People. She said, “Shonda always always wanted Regé. The person I am proudest of casting is Phoebe because we did see A LOT of people for that role. I saw her on tape. and I was just taken by her because she is so captivating.”

Phoebe was actually the first actress to read with Rege!

“We managed to have this magical audition process with Shonda there where we put them together and I was able to direct them,” Robinson said. “Regé was already pre-decided but Phoebe came in and read. She was fantastic and got the role.”

Robinson didn’t initially see the sex appeal in Regé, but now she does! She said, “It’s interesting about Regé, I hope he is not offended by this but I never saw him as a sex symbol. I always saw him as a serious actor, very committed, a caring professional. And now look at him, I mean goodness me. It’s incredible, I hope he is the next James Bond.”

Summer House's Paige DeSorbo Apologizes for Comment About Regé-Jean Page's Skin

Paige DeSorbo is apologizing for the comment she made about Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page and his skin tone.

While on the Giggly Squad podcast, the 28-year-old was speaking about her choice for the next James Bond. She chose Regé-Jean. Her reasoning was: “Because … he’s real British, he’s light-skinned.”

She noted that she “described an actor’s skin tone when describing his appearance, and I realize now how that could be offensive.”

“I wanted to take time to sincerely apologize to anyone that I may have offended,” she added. “It was not my intention, and I recognize what I said was wrong. I am completely committed to learning and growing, so I just wanted to take time today and sincerely apologize for my words from last week. I’m very sorry.”

'Bridgerton's Rege-Jean Page Reveals The Most Difficult Scenes For Him To Film & They Might Surprise You

Rege-Jean Page is opening up more about his hot role in Bridgerton as Simon, Duke of Hastings.

The 30-year-old actor revealed some of the most difficult scenes for him as an actor in the Netflix show, and they might surprise you.

“The hardest moments are the very, very subtle barbs and hurts over the dinner table,” Rege-Jean shared in a recent interview.

He continued, pointing out that the high emotions are the toughest parts to go through: “When someone says something that you don’t get to blow up about, that you don’t get to cry about, you just have to take that sting right in the ribcage and express that through a flick of an eyebrow or through the way that you cut your peas.”

Another difficult scene for Rege-Jean to take on was another dinner scene with Simon sharing a meal with the Bridgertons and he’s reminded of the pain of his past.

“There’s a moment in the house of the Bridgertons where it’s ostensibly a quite calm, happy scene. I’m at dinner for the first time with this family. I really don’t want to be there, but you can’t say that,” he says. “The kids are there and they’re all happy and playing and being accepted in exactly the warm and loving family that Simon never had. And that is never explicitly mentioned in the script in that moment.”

Rege-Jean added, “No one’s going to say it. But it is the biggest thing about that scene for him. Inhabiting that space is the most challenging but also the most gratifying part.”

Previously, Rege-Jean opened up about those steamy scenes with co-star Phoebe Dyvenor and just how his family reacted to them.

Most recently, fans were surprised to find out that Rege-Jean was also in this fan fave movie franchise!
