Phoebe Dynevor and Matthew Goode film The Colour Room as Bridgerton star Rege-Jean Page won’t return

They recently began filming for the Sky Original drama, The Colour Room. 

And Phoebe Dynevor and Matthew Goode looked almost unrecognisable as they chatted between takes, a day after Bridgerton co-star Regé-Jean Page revealed he WON’T return for series two.  

The actress, 25, was seen taking a break from filming in the Midlands on Saturday as she joined co-star Matthew, 43, for some coffee.

The Bridgerton beauty transformed into real-life pottery pioneer Clarice Cliff as her hair was styled in tight ringlet curls.

To keep her hair in place, Phoebe sported a hair net around her locks as she chatted between takes.  

She appeared to be in good spirits as she snacked on set, wearing a brown tailored jacket at three quarter length trousers.

Matthew, meanwhile, looked dapper in a stone three-piece suit and bottle green knee-high socks. 

He added a further pop of colour with a bright yellow tie, and also sported smart brogue shoes.  

The film tells the true story of Cliff, a pioneering ceramic artist who became a rising star in the pottery industry in Stoke-On-Trent in the 1920s. 

Gushing about the production earlier this month, Phoebe said: ‘I am so excited to be joining the cast of The Colour Room, especially in the role as one of the nations most celebrated artists, Clarice Cliff. It’s truly such an honour to take on such a remarkable character.

In real life, Cliff broke the glass ceiling to revolutionise the workplace during the 20th Century, and the film will see her take ‘more and more dangerous risks’ to bring her creations to life.

The artist went on to create the Art Deco ‘Bizarre’ range while apprenticing for renowned Art Designer Fred Ridgeway, played by David Morrissey.

The hit Netflix series took to its official Twitter account to reveal that the actor, 31, who plays Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings, will not return. 

Regé-Jean, who is set to star in The Gray Man, also took to Instagram to confirm the news as he emotionally said it had been a ‘pleasure and a privilege to be your Duke’.  

In a tongue-in-cheek statement penned as the mysterious show lead Lady Whistledown, Bridgerton tweeted: ‘Your Grace, it has been a pleasure.’   

The statement read: ‘Dear Readers, while all eyes turn to Lord Anthony Bridgerton’s quest to find a Viscountess, we bid adieu to Regé-Jean Page, who so triumphantly played the Duke of Hastings.

‘We’ll miss Simon’s presence onscreen, but he will always be a part of the Bridgerton family. 

‘Daphne will remain a devoted wife and sister, helping her brother navigate the upcoming social season and what it has to offer – more intrigue and romance than my readers may be able to bear. Yours truly, Lady Whistledown.’ 

Regé-Jean later confirmed his show exit in his own statement posted to Instagram where he shared a picture of himself in character and behind-the-scenes.

He penned: ‘The ride of a life time. It’s been an absolute pleasure and a privilege to be your Duke.

‘Joining this family – not just on screen, but off screen too. Our incredibly creative and generous cast, crew, outstanding fans – it’s all been beyond anything I could have imagined.’

Signing off his message, he added: ‘The love is real and will just keep growing ❤️❤️❤️.’ 

MailOnline has contacted both Regé-Jean and Netflix for further comment.  

Bridgerton was officially renewed by Netflix for series 2 in January after weeks of speculation.

The second season will focus on Anthony Bridgerton’s (Jonathan Bailey) quest to find a wife after his turbulent love life was played out in the first series.
