MCM: Regé-Jean Page


Ok folks, let’s face it – the noise you heard when Bridgerton premiered was the nation’s (world’s?) panties dropping over Regé-Jean Page. This British actor doesn’t have a long screen resume, but I think we can all guarantee he’s going to do VERY, very well. Surprisingly, he’s done a few frock flicks! So let’s just enjoy this beautiful specimen of humanhood, shall we?


Roots (2016)

He impressed with his acting as “Chicken George,” the enslaved illegitimate son of a Southern planter in the pre-Civil War South.

He gets his nickname from his way with chickens, as in, chicken fighting :(

He has range!

The Merchant of Venice (2016)

PEOPLE. He played Solanio in this filmed stage production at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London.

Sylvie’s Love (2020)

A recent Amazon movie set in 1950s Harlem. It’s been on my watchlist, now that I know that Page is in it, it’s bumped way up!

2020 Sylvie's Love

He’s not the main love interest, but there’s clearly something going on here.

The female main character’s father owns a record shop, and the male is a saxophonist, so I’m assuming Page plays in his band.


Bridgerton (2020)

And, this is why we are all here, so, enjoy!

    It was the world,I can confirm.The loose cravats are to compensate for the folks feeling hot under their collars.

      Now that you bring up the topic of shirts and stuff, Mr. Page does wear them with–distinction.

    So far, Bridgerton is my favourite role Rege-Jean Page has been in. I have been in lust since his entry at Lady Danbury’s London house. And I definitely want more.

    For me this this actor looks like a mixed-race version of Aidan Turner. Both actors could be brothers.

    I am old enough to be this gentlemans’ grandmother, but have binge-watched Bridgerton 4 times, and salivate at every scene that he enters! He reminds me of another “pretty” man from my generation – Elvis. Some men are so beautiful that they should have been women! And I think a larger cravat would have been a distraction from that gorgeous face.

  5. Black Betty, Bama-lam!

    Oooooh! I didn’t realize that was him playing Chicken George in the new reiteration of Roots!

    That spoon gif, to quote Garth from that 90s classic Wayne’s World: “Makes me feel kinda funny…”

    He is absolutely dreamy, gorgeous, sexy, yummy… There are numerous adjectives and they’re all inadequate, so I’m gonna stop typing now and concentrate some more on that spoon gif…
