Secure the Shillings! John Boyega Shows Interest in Joining ‘Bridgerton’ Amid Regé-Jean Page’s Exit
Friday, Jun 25, 2021

It looks like John Boyega wants to secure the bag…the Bridgerton bag that is!

The Star Wars star, who recently joined now Bridgerton alum Regé-Jean Page at the THR Drama Actor Roundtable, showed interest in joining the Shonda Rhimes’ Regency-era series on Netflix. We can’t tell if he was joking or not, but we’re into it!

 “I’m trying to get that Bridgerton money, man. I need to wear them skintights, I need to be the new guy up in there… But, honestly, something like that. Give me a horse and a lovely maiden and all of that,” Boyega boasted.

In a bit of playful banter, Regé-Jean offered to trade places with Boyega for a franchise with a seemingly bigger budget. “Tell you what, I’ll have that Star Wars money, you can have the Bridgerton money,” Regé-Jean said.

As the THR Roundtable was released days before John Boyega reportedly quit filming Netflix’s Rebel Ridge due to “family reasons,” it’s unclear where his relationship with the streaming giant lies, THR reports.

Nonetheless, would you like to see John Boyega in the next season of Bridgerton?
