Almost everyone is swooning over actor Regé-Jean Page’s romance with Phoebe Dynevor in the Shondaland-produced Netflix series, Bridgerton. Based on the bestselling novels by Julia Quinn, Bridgerton arrived on Christmas Day and follows two high-society families in Regency-era London.

Daphne Bridgerton (played by Phoebe Dynevor), is the oldest daughter in the Bridgerton family, who enters into a pretend engagement with Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings, played by the British-Zimbabwean actor and everyone’s latest Netflix obsession, Page. The actor who has learned how to be light about his work while taking it seriously recently attributed his on-screen chemistry with Daphne to “hours and hours” of dance rehearsals they did for the show.

And if the 30-year-old looks familiar to you, that’s because you may have seen him on-screen before, having moved from the world of British television to Hollywood. Here’s what you need to know about the breakout star of Bridgerton, including his background and previous roles.
