Bridgerton actor Rege Jean-Page passed out viewers over his character’s romance with Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) and says it’s not too far from dating Tinder

The Shondaland-produced Netflix series arrived on Christmas Day and accompanies Daphne Bridgerton in her search for a suitable husband as the social season in Regency-era London begins as Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings (Jean-Page), becomes to the object of their affection, but the path to true love is of course not smooth

One of the most impressive elements of Bridgerton is the dance sequences performed during the lavish ballroom parties

Young debutants like Daphne are often twirled and twirled between suitors, including the Duke of Hastings, creating some sizzling chemistry moments

Talking about the dance routines, Jean-Page said over the BBC breakfast, “They’re lovely and the centerpiece of the piece

‘The joy of the dances is that it’s a bit like Regency Tinder, there is still an aggressive wipe, but it’s also the only place where people are allowed to be intimate and very honest with each other, even though you’re in the point of view of society as a whole, so there is a real push and pull ‘

He added to the dances: “Besides, they are just the fulfillment of fantasy dreams. They are beautiful, beautiful romantic dances in the incredibly fancy costume that you can imagine in big old castles and fireworks in the background

“You really have thrown everything into it to enable you to have a wonderful escape without borders”

Another important theme of the series were the sex scenes, which leave little to the imagination

Dynevor recently explained to Metro her importance for the series couk: “What was really important to me is that Daphne finds herself through this love story and finds out what she wants and needs as a woman”

“So these moments are really important to Daphne’s journey. She doesn’t know anything about sex or intimacy, it’s just something that has never been talked about or discussed, so she has no idea what it is”

“There’s one aspect of sexual awakening that I find so interesting as a modern audience because we were so connected now,” she added
