It's been just over three weeks since Bridgerton landed on Netflix and our obsession has yet to subside. Luckily for us, the cast and creators of the show are also still fully invested and drip-feeding us insights into the behind the scenes workings of the hit show. Recently Regé-Jean Page aka The Duke of Hastings revealed which of the show's scenes were hardest to film, and what he said may surprise you.
Despite the plentiful sex scenes, Page told Netflix Queue Page that it was actually the 'heightened emotional moments' that were the toughest for him to film.
'It’s not always the extreme things that are the hardest. I think everyone has these heightened emotional moments in them at all times; you’re just controlling it and keeping it in check.
'The hardest moments are the very, very subtle barbs and hurts over the dinner table. When someone says something that you don’t get to blow up about, that you don’t get to cry about, you just have to take that sting right in the ribcage and express that through a flick of an eyebrow or through the way that you cut your peas.'
'There’s a moment in the house of the Bridgertons where it’s ostensibly a quite calm, happy scene. I’m at dinner for the first time with this family. I really don’t want to be there, but you can’t say that.' Page continued.
'The kids are there and they’re all happy and playing and being accepted in exactly the warm and loving family that Simon never had. And that is never explicitly mentioned in the script in that moment. No one’s going to say it. But it is the biggest thing about that scene for him. Inhabiting that space is the most challenging but also the most gratifying part.'
Well, now we'll have to go back and watch it all over again for further analysis.
