How Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page really got along on the set of Bridgerton

The second season of “Bridgerton” premiered in March, but fans are still talking about the steamy on-screen chemistry between season one’s “It” couple Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page). . The series introduced Daphne as prime wedding material, or the “diamond” of the season, to quote Queen Charlotte. Although Simon did not want to get married, he was eventually convinced otherwise. A wedding ceremony later, viewers were treated to a series of passionate love scenes, enough to make anyone want to shoo their parents out of the room. The sexy footage sparked a flurry of memes, proving fans were tuning in to Daphne and Simon more than anyone else. “I’m watching Bridgerton for the storyline,” one person joked on Twitter. “Ah yeah hmmm the action is on,” someone else wrote alongside a photo of Simon looking thoughtfully at the camera.

But all that sexy time didn’t just flow together seamlessly on camera! Dynevor told E! News that she and Page “worked really hard on it [the sex scenes] feel real,” while showrunner Chris Van Dusen added that they were “heavily choreographed.” It all felt so real that even though that rumor was debunked by both actors, fans were also wondering if Dynevor and Page were a real-life couple. Currently, People reports that Page has been linked to Emily Brown and although Dynevor is single, she briefly dated Pete Davidson prior to his relationship with Kim Kardashian. All reports indicate that Dynevor and Page were very friendly on set.

Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page had a working relationship

In 2021, Phoebe Dynevor was asked about her relationship with Regé-Jean Page, and she told You Magazine that things with her co-star have always been “strictly professional.” “I’d like to say that there really was something between us, but no,” she said, explaining that her connection with Page has always been fueled by a “professional working relationship.” However, she is grateful that this was the case. “It would be very complicated if it went further,” she added. “I keep hearing about people falling in love with their co-stars… It’s yet to happen to me, but I’m intrigued.”

Page reiterated her statements in an interview with Access, attributing their chemistry to the scripts. “I think all you need to know is on camera. That’s why we presented it so beautifully for you,” he said. “All the sparks flew from the beautiful scripts that were handed to us, so I think the scintillating script material [was] more than enough.”

As spontaneous as these kisses and love scenes seemed, they really were the result of a lot of hard work! Per E! News, the actors approached them like they were “complicated stunts.” It also didn’t hurt that Dynevor and Page spent a lot of time together in preparation. “When you’ve spent so many hours with someone on the dance floor, being close to someone, literally catching each other when you fall…then a whole lot [the chemistry] happens naturally,” Page shared.

Like many other co-stars, Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page’s time together also brought them closer personally. “We spent so much time rehearsing together that we’ve become good friends,” Dynevor told The Guardian. “Unfortunately now [Regé-Jean’s] in Los Angeles, but we check out a lot together.” Given their closeness, the “Snatch” actor opened up about Page’s exit from Bridgerton. While fans were devastated to learn that the dashing Duke of Hastings wouldn’t be reprising his role in season 2, Dynevor took a more cautious approach: “Yeah, I think it’s a wrench,” she said on the Variety Awards Circuit podcast. (A wrench is British slang for something that ruins a project.) “But again, the show is about the Bridgertons, and there are eight books. …Fans of the books know that each episode is about a different sibling. And we are very happy to pass the baton on to loved ones [Jonathan Bailey]who plays Anthony.”

After all, Page Six reported that Page left “Bridgerton” because of “creative differences,” and not because of any rift in his relationship with Dynevor. “He wasn’t happy with what was planned for his character in Season 2, which would have kept him as a player but not the focus of the show,” a source said. In May, Page and Dynevor reunited at the Met Gala, where they looked particularly cozy together, according to The Mirror. Obviously, everything ends well for these two stars.
