Daphne will remain a devoted wife and sister, helping her brother navigate the upcoming social season and what it has to offer–more intrigue and romance than my readers may be able to bear,” Whistledown wrote in a statement.
In an exclusive interview withVariety, Page told the magazine that the original plan was always for him to only participate in Season 1. “It’s a one-season arc. It’s going to have a beginning, middle, end – give us a year.” He continued, “[I thought] ‘That’s interesting,’ because then it felt like a limited series. I get to come in, I get to contribute my bit and then the Bridgerton family rolls on.” headtopics.com
“One of the things that is different about this [romance] genre is that the audience knows the arc completes,” he said. “They come in knowing that, so you can tie people in emotional knots because they have that reassurance that we’re going to come out and we’re going to have the marriage and the baby.”
Just last week, Page won the NAACP Image Award for outstanding actor in a drama series for his role in Bridgerton. This was the first acting award earned by the series. Page is also nominated for both individual and ensemble acting awards at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, which will air on Sunday.
