"Bridgerton" stars Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page have kept in touch since wrapping production on Season 1.

In an interview with The Guardian, Dynevor, 25, spoke about her close ties with her onscreen love interest, revealing that she and her 31-year-old co-star often communicate while waiting for the renewal of their period drama series on Netflix.

"Unfortunately now he’s off in Los Angeles, but we check in with each other a lot," she said of Page.

The British actress added that playing the roles of Daphne Bridgerton and Simon Basset in the show, which is based on the "Bridgerton" series by Julia Quinn, has been a massive thing for their respective careers.

"It was a big moment in both of our lives in a lot of ways, and we were both quite nervous about it. We spent so much time rehearsing together that we’ve become good mates," the "Snatch" alum said.

While "Bridgerton" Season 2 has not yet been confirmed, Dynevor said she is already excited about the upcoming installment's story.

"I genuinely have no idea what they’re going to do with the second season, but I imagine if they’re following the books, then it would be Anthony’s journey," she told Deadline. "I’m sure Daphne will end up getting involved. But yeah, I do wonder what it looks like. I’m excited to find out."

Dynevor also expressed her concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic affecting production.

"I can’t imagine how it would be possible to film under these circumstances," she explained. "There are so many extras and so many crew members and it’s a very intimate show. It just baffles me how we would film it under COVID rules unless there was a vaccine beforehand."

As for the dating rumors, both Dynevor and her co-star have denied that their onscreen chemistry has spilled over to their off-screen relationship. Page credited the writers and the "beautiful scripts" for telling a convincing love story.

"I think that everything you need to know is on camera. The sparky words, scripts, and material are more than enough," he said.

Page also made light of the dating rumors by joking that they were "actually together" in an interview despite being in different locations.

"We’re playing footsie under here," he said.
