The star of the Roots and the Bridgertons series, British-African actor Regé-Jean Page spoke out for the first time about rumors that he will be the new 007 agent.
It has long been discussed that the new Bond may be dark-skinned. Previously, the role was predicted Idris Elba, but now the leader of the bookies is the new hero-lover Rege-Jean Page, famous after the role of the Duke of Hastings in “Bridgertons” channel Netflix. However, the actor himself believes that people are waiting in vain for him as the new Bond.
“The Internet thinks a lot of things, and that’s one of the nicest things to think about. So I’m happy with that. But there may be an element of cultural code here. If you’re British and you do something famous that people rate well, then the discussion of a potential Bond starts immediately. It’s like a credit-you get a B badge,” Page noted on The Jimmy Fallon Show.
