Page, who has previously starred in Mortal Engines and ABC’s For the People, rose to greater stardom as a result of his role in Bridgerton, Netflix’s Regency era debutante drama. In IGN’s review, we gave Bridgerton a nine out of 10, calling the chemistry between Page’s mysterious and conflicted Basset and Phoebe Dynevor’s Daphne Bridgerton “impeccable.” The series was watched by 82 million viewers in its first month, according to Netflix.

Plot details for Dungeons & Dragons are under tight wraps, so it remains to be seen who Page will be playing, and whether the plot will keep things strictly fantasy or marry that with real-world tabletop play.

Dungeons & Dragons is currently slated for release on May 27, 2022 due to delays resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
