Bridgerton fame Regé-Jean Page aka Simon Basset, is set to star in a new Netflix heist film. The actor became immensely popular after the show, which has recently been titled as the most-watched series, from the streaming giant’s list of original content. As per the report, the saucy period drama had 82 million accounts viewing it and 625 million hours of watch time. The show was followed by Lupin Part 1 and The Witcher Season One, with 76 million accounts viewing the show each.
