He is known to many as the Duke of Hastings, Rege-Jean Page has shared a candid story about his personal life, disclosing what got him into the movie industry and plans he has for the future.
Rege who grew up in Zimbabwe, gave an exclusive interview with InStyle magazine where he revealed that growing up, he questioned everything that came his way, and looking for answers. He said:
''looking at the world, interpreting it, and throwing it back at people and saying, "Hey, here's what I see. Is this who we are? I have no idea who I am, but maybe I can work it out if I yell it loud enough, and you yell back at me."
He also shared how he got into the movie industry as an actor sharing how his first roles were all about slavery and pain as a black man that he got to a point where he vowed that the next role he would book would be about showing black excellence and success.
The sexy actor has featured in other films like the recently cancelled legal drama show For The People where he played Leornald Knowx, an assistant US Attorney who has a mother who keeps demanding that he quits his job and take up a role with the government that will build his political career.
When questioned whether he was okay with playing a duke despite being a black man, the 30 year old had this to say:
''If we've endured white Jesus for this long, then folks can endure a Black Duke.”
He says the future looks bright for him and that he is open to playing better roles that uplift black men and highlights powerful stories that do not have anything to do with slavery.
He is also hoping that the second season of Bridgerton will be renewed so that he can show the world what he has in store.
