Bridgerton Updates: Bridgerton’s Breakthrough Star Regé-Jean Page joins forces with Chris Pine in the big-screen adaptation of Dungeons & Dragons.
The announcement arrives the same day that a 31-year-old actor was called one of Time Magazine’s Next 100 Highly Influential People in the World. Speaking of rising star stars for the publication, Bridgerton producer Shonda Rhime said, “Few artists craft their moments so beautifully-or capture our attention so easily.
Meanwhile, Bridgerton’s superiors revealed this week that they had discovered two of the leading lady’s upcoming seasons. Simone Ashley, best known for her appearance in the Netflix Sex Education film, will join the cast as Bridgerton’s eldest brother Anthony’s latest love interest.
As per Deadline, her character will vary slightly from the novel in order to keep the show’s “recreated, the multi-racial world of 1880s London’s high society” As such, her names change from Kate Sheffield to Kate Sharma, and she and her relatives have been published as being of Indian origin.
Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page
It’s not currently specified who will appear in this fantasy novel, but The Hollywood Reporter confirms that it’s a leading role.
The first tabletop role-playing game – consisting of missions, battles, and treasure hunts – puts together humans, goblins, elves, and a plethora of exotic, wonderful animals, all while being supervised by the Dungeon Master (the host and guide of the game).
Michelle Rodriguez the star of the series Fast and Furious and Justice Smith from Pokemon: Detective Pikachu have also been included in the film.
Meanwhile, Game Night’s leading pair, Jonathan Goldstein, and John Francis Daley are expected to make the decisions on this one after writing the most recent iteration of the script.
If Bridgerton actress Phoebe Dynevor’s remarks had everything to do with her, Wonder Woman 1984’s Pine should have a wonderful time working with Page.
“I think we played so well together, and I learned a great deal from him,” she said last month.
“We have various acting abilities, so we played off each other in that respect. We both were all on the same page about the roles and what their connection was. I enjoyed working with him.”
Bridgerton season 1 is now available to stream on Netflix, though Dungeons & Dragons are set to hit theaters early next year.
