Bridgerton’s Regé-Jean Page rocks purple hair as he jams on stage with teenage band

He’s been widely praised for his sensational portrayal of the polished Duke of Hastings in Netflix hit Bridgerton.  

And Regé-Jean Page looked worlds away from his high society role as he rocked purple hair and jammed on stage with his teenage band in newly unearthed snaps. 

The actor, 31, commanded attention as he put on a show for packed audiences in Camden, London, while being the group’s lead singer back in the noughties.

In snaps taken between 2005 to 2009, Regé looks completely at home as he performs on stage alongside the other The Super Nashwan Kids band members and plays up for the crowd.

One image shows him jumping in the air while donning blue jeans and a printed t-shirt, with his purple locks spilling our from under a bandana as he lands.

Regé also shared clips of his bands high-energy gigs to YouTube, with one video revealing their fans getting up on stage with the teens to rock out to the music. 

The actor reflected on his teenage rocker phase in a recent interview with Square Mile, however he didn’t give up the name of the band.

He said: ‘What else are you going to do as a teenager? You’re going to scream at people one way or another. You might as well do it in a productive way. Was my logic.’

When asked to name the band, Regé refused as he joked: ‘There’s only so far that one pulls back the dark and very well placed covers of their teenage indiscretions. 

‘But it was good fun. It was a healthy place to have opinions, and have them very, very loudly.’  

Regé lived in North London as a teenager after growing up in Harare, Zimbabwe. He then spent lots of his 20s in LA.
