Bad news for fans of the handsome Simon Busset, Duke of Hasting, star of the Netflix phenomenon The Bridgertons , as it has been known that the actor who brings him to life, Regé-Jean Page , is not single. According to the images published by The Mail on Sunday, the interpreter has been seen in an affectionate attitude with a girl, who turns out to be his partner.
The young woman is called Emily Brown and she is a 30-year-old writer who works as a freelance for firms such as Nike , Converse and Uber. His love of sports goes further, as he also plays football, specifically for the FBB Warrior team in South West London. The couple live in a house they bought together in the capital in February of last year, a few months after the recording of the first and successful season of The Bridgertons ended. According to the English press, the couple said goodbye when the television star was heading to a car with a driver on his way to the airport to catch a flight to New York, where he will continue with his audiovisual projects.
Born in London but raised in Zimbabwe , Page made his first television appearance in 2004. After several supporting roles, he assumed a greater role in the American miniseries Roots but his chance to join the Shondaland universe – as the Shonda universe is called Rhimes , the creator of Grey's Anatomy or Scandal – came to her in 2018, with the addition to the series For the people, a fiction of lawyers produced by Rhimes. And it has been his portrayal of Simon Basset in The Bridgertons that has brought him not only a string of television award nominations, but also legions of fans and a second season that is already in the pipeline.
Page has become one of the faces of the moment. His Instagram profile has gone in weeks from having 20,000 followers to 4.8 million. His fame has been such and so immediate that even his name is beginning to sound like the next James Bond. But while the duke leaves little to the imagination during the abundant and explicit sex scenes in Netflix fiction, Page's real life has so far remained under a halo of mystery.
These last few weeks have been the focus of interviews, where he has shelled anecdotes, since he is a great fan of both music and coffee, without which he can not do in the filming, until he had to learn boxing, diction or riding a horse for the series. And it has also become the obsession of the paparazzi, who seek to discover something with which to break their discretion. For now, he has been seen with his partner on the streets of London, it remains to be seen when he will make an official presentation on a red carpet.
