Paging Lady Whistledown: The stars of “Bridgerton” have served us some piping hot tea about their offscreen relationship.
Netflix’s hottest new onscreen couple, Regé-Jean Page and Phoebe Dynevor, appeared remotely on “Good Morning America” Wednesday to discuss their chemistry on Shonda Rhimes’ juicy period drama (insert side-eye emoji here).
The English actors star as Simon Basset — a.k.a. the Duke of Hastings — and Daphne Bridgerton, respectively, in the buzzy series based on Julia Quinn’s bestselling novels about love and lust in Regency-era England.
“Chemistry is probably the easiest part because Phoebe is lovely,” Page said of his costar. “And we were working with such wonderful material. The characters already existed. These are bestselling books — people love them — and they have great chemistry in the books. All we had to do was channel through this amazing chemistry that already existed.”
