He’s daring, he’s dashing, he’s straight out of a bodice ripper par excellence. And now, he’s coming to Saturday Night Live this week.
We’re talking, of course, about Rege’-Jean Page, who has stolen the nation’s hearts with his portrayal of the rugged Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings, on the Netflix period drama Bridgerton. Now, the man who wooed and won Daphne Bridgerton will be trying his comedy chops on this week’s SNL, taking sketch comedy’s ultimate challenge.
Page is best known as a dramatic actor, playing Chicken George in the 2016 miniseries Roots and as a regular cast member for a year on the ABC legal drama For the People.
Joining him this week is musical guest Bad Bunny, the Puerto Rican rapper, singer, and songwriter. Watch them test each other in the name game above and Kate McKinnon asking the Bridgerton question below.
