The Gray Man star Regé-Jean-Page is open to Netflix recasting his role in Bridgerton.
“When it was announced that actor Regé-Jean Page would not be returning to Bridgerton, it created a lot of unrest in the fandom that watched the series just to look at him. Still, in the time since, Page has not seemed to regret this choice and is even fine with the character being recast.”
Emilia Clarke, star of the upcoming MCU series Secret Invasion, opens up on her experiences with brain aneurysms and counts herself lucky she’s even able to work.

In an interview with BBC’s Sunday Morning, Clarke spoke candidly about her health troubles, and the difficult process of regaining her cognition with ‘quite a bit’ of her brain missing. The actor said, what with the emergency surgeries she’s undergone, it is ‘remarkable’ she still has the ability to speak.”
