Washington: Ever since the hit Netflix romantic period drama ‘Bridgerton’ released, one question that has crossed everyone’s mind is Are actors Phoebe
Dynevor and Rege-Jean Page dating? And Dynevor finally has an answer for it.
As per Fox News, the 25-year-old actor spoke to You magazine and cleared the air surrounding the romance rumours between her and Page. Shooting down rumours that she is dating her co-star, Dynevor called their relationship “strictly professional”.
She said, “I’d love to say there was really something between us. But no, it has always been strictly professional. There was so much pressure on us to get it right that it was all about the work. We have a really professional working relationship.”
Dynevor added, “I’m glad for that, actually. It would be very complicated if it went further. I always hear about people falling in love with their costars. It’s yet to happen to me, but I’m intrigued.”
“People really root for us. We have to say we’re actors, we’re doing a job, there is something to be said for not spoiling the magic… but at a certain point you have to say no,” Dynevor said on fan hopes of a real-life romance between the duo.
Dynevor’s co-star Page also previously addressed potential romance rumours, saying their onscreen chemistry was simply a product of “beautiful scripts.”
Page told Access in an interview, “I think everything you need to know is on camera. That’s why we presented it so beautifully for you. All the sparks that flew off of the beautiful scripts that we were handed, and so I think that the sparky scripted material is more than enough.”
