"I had a bit of a heads up, so I knew," the 26-year-old actress said during this week's Variety Awards Circuit Podcast. "But yeah, I guess it is a spanner. But again, the show centers around the Bridgertons and there are eight books. And I think maybe the fans of the books were more aware of that happening than the fans of the show. I think the fans of the books know that every episode is about a different sibling."
"And we're very much passing on the baton to the lovely Jonathan [Bailey], who plays Anthony. And that will be the main storyline of season 2 and the story arc of season 2" she continued, adding, "We were all aware of that. Obviously, it's sad to see [Page] go but I'm looking forward to being reunited with my family."

Jonathan Bailey Reacts to ‘Bridgerton’s Season 2 Pickup and Reveals Dream Guest Star (Exclusive)
The first season centered around Daphne and Simon's love story. While fans expected to see the continuation of their life as newlyweds and parents in season 2, that won't be the case.
"I remember shooting the last scene in episode one where Regé and I have, like, our first dance together. And I remember thinking, 'Wow, this feels kind of special,'" Dynevor recalled. "There were, like, fireworks going off behind us and it was, like, really romantic music. It felt like a really special moment, but you never know if it's going to come out on camera and the audience is going to feel that buzz, too. It's hard to tell."
"Pleasure and a privilege! An honour to be a member of the family - on and off screen, cast, crew and incredible fans - the love is real and will just keep growing," he wrote.
Executive producer Shonda Rhimes previously told Vanity Fair that Page had a one-season deal at the beginning of the project and that anything else was "extra." She also clarified that the actor and a few other characters were invited to return for season 2 cameos, but Page ultimately turned it down.
The actor previously told Variety that he was drawn to the role because it was a "one-season arc" with a "beginning, middle, end." He said it was always his intention to "contribute my bit and then the Bridgerton family rolls on."
