Dungeons and Dragons: Of Thieves Honor between .
Cast Tuesday at The Late Show With
Stephen Colbert For the first time, he was greeted with applause and cheers, making him jokingly question whether the hosts were employing the audience.
Colbert points out that people are still “deeply missing” his first season of in Bridgerton — “Multiple parts of you in this season” — and then ask him when he knew his career had changed because of the Netflix series.
Page explained that there were a few moments that hit him hard, but there was one he remembered in particular: when he arrived in Belfast to film Dungeons & Dragons comes a few months after the hit show.
“I remember landing in Northern Ireland,” he recalls. “I got in the car, the ride from the airport, and the driver turned on the radio, and they were scrambling to find me. They were like, ‘Regé-Jean Page is in town, if you know where he is, please call us. So, I Just hiding out in a hotel for two or three months. I just basically didn’t leave my room. So, it was a bit of a mixed bag, like, ‘You guys are all lovely and give me lots and lots of attention,’ and, ‘You all Lovely, got me lots and lots of attention.’”
Bridgerton alumni say someone found him, but People in Belfast are very friendly and helpful, so they’re not sneaking pictures. Instead, they would run up to him and welcome him excitedly to the area.
“It’s a very strange reversal,” he told the host. “Set used to be a phenomenal place. Like I would go on set and it would be where dreams would happen and everything would be weird and I would have to act in Hollywood and then you go home and sit in a coffee shop and life is normal.”
He continued, “After Bridgerton people treated me normally and I went to work and then I Interacting a bit with my co-workers, the public turned into a performance space because that’s where I’m being watched all day. So there’s a very, very weird shift that I’m still learning how to navigate gracefully because you want to meet people, you Want to share the joy you bring to people. That’s why you do this job.”
Dungeons and Dragons star said he likes to stop before leaving to catch his breath and mentally prepare himself for going out. This allows him to better meet people and share the projects he creates with fans.
“On TV, there is a common aspect to the things you make that ,” he explained. “Bridgerton is such a hit because there’s something that gives us a sense of community, a shared escapism when we’re all stuck in our own little bubbles I think it’s something very special and needs to be treated with care and gratitude.”
Colbert went on to ask Page on the
caption What he thinks*) The New York Post declared him ” the most handsome man in the world ” in January , according to science. The actor said it was news to him and he wouldn’t look in the mirror and say those words to himself every morning. He also explained that he felt it was a bit of an “ambush headline” since he wasn’t in the news at the time and was in the Dungeons & Dragons City press conference, and suddenly people are talking about him again.
Guests and hosts go back and forth about their colognes and how they smell good, then switch back to Bridgerton when Page shares What “people don’t know” about this show is that he and co-star Phoebe Dynevor “both drank horrible The coffee breathes all the way.”
Colbert at the end of the first part of his interview with Page asked him to give Entertainment Weekly in which he declares that while filming Dungeons and Dragons, he “owns my Best ass life .”
“You’ve shared with us because of your butt and you at Bridgerton Its generosity is admired, but why is it getting better? Why is it getting better?” asked the moderator. “How did it get better in Dungeons and Dragons? ”
Page cheekily replied, “Occasionally , I just give people what they want.”
