If you’re a hopeless romantic (like me), you like someone whispering sweet things in your ear while you’re in bed. Well, you’re in luck. How about listening to breakout steamy Netflix hit, Brigerton’s star, the sexy Rege-Jean Page, read you something? Now you can.
Page has joined the Calm app with his very own sleep story. Titled ‘The Prince & The Naturalist’ by Victoria Gosling, it is a fitting tribute to his Netflix character, Simon Bassett, the Duke of Bridgerton.

“No one was sufficiently prepared,” the 31-year-old said in a recent roundtable interview with the Hollywood Reporter. He then joked: “I wasn’t sufficiently prepared, and I was there.”
“I think people were grateful for the intensity of the romantic aspects of Bridgerton; I’m not sure how grateful I was to watch it for myself,” he continued. “It was overwhelming. But I think people were looking to be overwhelmed.”
However, Page added that while his family might not want to see those scenes too often, they’re still super supportive of his acting skills and the roles he’s getting.
“My family doesn’t want to be
