The ‘Bridgerton’ cast offers advice to aspiring actors

It may seem to many that the Bridgerton stars are experiencing overnight success, but the cast had to work extremely hard to get where they are today. So what advice do Page and Dynevor have for aspiring actors? In an interview with Shondaland, they offered some direction to those who were considering acting and it was particularly refreshing.

“Do it. It builds empathy, and if you enjoy it, why not?” Page declared. The Bridgerton star continued on to add that it is important for actors not to take acting too seriously and remember that it should be fun even when you’re working on something as big as a Netflix series. “Just don’t put any pressure on yourself and make sure you hold the sense of playfulness. It’s all just a game, even when the stakes are high.”

Page continued on to share what he loved about his job as an actor and how being able to tell stories that people see themselves in makes him proud. “Allowing people to feel less alone,” the Bridgerton star shared when asked about his best achievement. “Any time someone says they’ve watched something I’ve done and it’s helped them understand themselves, or something they were going through with a new perspective, or just made them feel seen. I think that’s the best outcome I can ever get from this job.”

But remember, there’s a lot of rejection.”
