Both actors had supporting roles in the 2018 post-apocalyptic action film, in which Rege played the airship Captain Khora and Menik’s ally Sathya Kuranath.

The Netflix star does have a special lady in his life.

It was clean Brown, a freelance copywriter and part-time football player, was a lucky lady.

Page just made fans faint from Sunday’s affair and looked devilishly handsome as he walked the red carpet with a beaming smile on his face.

The star was nominated for his role as Simon Basset on Netflix’s steamy historical romance, but ultimately lost to Josh O’Connor, who plays Prince Charles in The Crown.

He looked his best wearing Rege-Jean dark slacks, velvet loafers and Cathy Waterman platinum and sapphire stud earrings.

When he learned of his nomination in July, the heartthrob posted a Polaroid photo of himself looking down with a sweet grin as he sat on the couch.

“It’s a joy to be seen,” he gushed. ’12 @televisionacad Emmy nominations for the dazzling group of artists @bridgertonnetflix.’

Although Page, who has no plans to return to Bridgerton, attended, many cast members had to skip the event while filming season two in England.

In April, it was reported that Page’s shocking departure from the show came after an argument with executive producer Shonda Rhimes over “creative differences.”

While many speculated that he was in the running to take on the role of James Bond, a source claimed that Page six that Page’s decision to leave Bridgerton was fueled by tensions with Rhimes over his character not being the “focal point” of the second season.

“Regé is not returning to Bridgerton due to creative differences with Shonda Rhimes and her team,” a Hollywood source told the publication.

The insider added: “He wasn’t happy with what was planned for his character for season two, which would have kept him a player but not the centerpiece of the show.”

Page rose to world fame after appearing as the handsome heartthrob Simon Bassett, the Duke of Hastings, in the show’s first season, which centered on his character’s romance with lead actress Daphne Bridgerton, played by Phoebe Dynevor.

Netflix said that in the show’s first 28 days online, Bridgerton was streamed in 82 million homes, and it was no surprise when it was renewed for a second season in January.

At the time, the streaming giant revealed that the second installment of episodes would focus on Daphne’s brother, Anthony Bridgerton, played by Jonathan Bailey, and his search for a wife, although it was initially suggested that Daphne and Simon would still be on the show, just not in lead roles.

But much to the disappointment of Page’s most devoted fans, Bridgerton’s social media accounts announced earlier this month that the actor would not be part of it.

“Dear readers,” the message began—written by Lady Whistledown herself. “While all eyes are on Lord Anthony Bridgerton’s search for a viscountess, we bid farewell to Regé-Jean Page, who so triumphantly played the Duke of Hastings.

“We will miss Simon’s on-screen presence, but he will always be part of the Bridgerton family.”

Rhimes, meanwhile, added: “Remember, the Duke is never gone. He’s just waiting to be looked at all over again.”
