"Bridgerton" is "Jane Austen meets Gossip Girl with 35 Shades of Grey" actor Regé-Jean Page describes, rather aptly.

However, in recent weeks - pretty much since 'Bridgerton' dropped on Netflix - one name has come up again and again, and it's Regé-Jean Page, who played Simon Basset in the steamy series. However, does that same romance appear off screen?

The 33-year-old actress later retweeted the post and proudly added, "You know the way some people were like "Diversity in period drama doesn't work"....63 million households thought it did tho so [skull head emoji]".

While the hosts joked that Page and Dynevor, who were video chatting in from separate locations, were probably "playing footsie" under the table, the two laughed. While the romance plays a huge role in the show, it was not what drew Dynevor's interest in the project.

Since launching the current logo in 1999, the industry has transitioned to a more modern, digital-friendly design language. Burger King introduced a new look on Thursday, marking the fast food franchise's first rebrand in more than 20 years.

She added, jokingly, however, that "meeting Regé at the table read" sealed the deal for her. And if the internet's suspicions are correct, Page would become the first Black James Bond in the franchise's history.

"I think there might be an element of cultural translation to be done here", he told Jimmy Fallon onThe Tonight Show earlier this week.

The actor, who is now residing in the USA, told host Jimmy Fallon that he gave his family back home in London a heads up about some of the show's steamy love scenes via their family WhatsApp group.

Webpage continued: "If you're a Brit and you do anything of any type of renown that individuals regard very well, men and women are likely to begin indicating the "B" phrase".
