The news that Page would no longer be seen in the second season of ‘Bridgerton’ did not come as a surprise if you have read the books by Julia Quinn. In this, too, the handsome duke only appears on the scene in the first book of the series. For Page, it was therefore soon a foregone conclusion. “It’s about a one-season storyline, with a beginning, a middle and an end,” he said. “I thought, ‘That’s interesting, because then it feels like a’ limited series ‘.’ I’ll come, do my thing, and then the Bridgerton family will go on without me. ”
Despite this, the production of ‘Bridgerton’ in February asked him if he might want to play in the second season. A guest role of three to five episodes with which he could earn a sloppy 42,000 euros per episode. But even then, Page declined the offer. In the meantime, the actor has already won several film contracts. In addition, there are also many rumors that he could be the new James Bond.
Presumably the series will continue to be a success without Page. ‘Bridgerton’ was a huge hit for Netflix, with 82 million households watching the series in the first month after its release – a record.
