Page plays the villainous Denny Carmichael in The Gray Man, which premiered Friday on Netflix. The film is an action thriller also starring Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans.

On GMA, Page said it felt "great" to transition from playing heartthrob Simon, the Duke of Hastings on Bridgerton to portraying Carmichael.

"The joy of villains is you get to just relish them. With Denny Carmichael in The Gray Man, I was leaning into relishing how deliciously devious he can be," Page said.

"They joy of villains is if you do them right, the audiences get to enjoy escaping their own niceness through you," he added. "It's a holiday from myself. All the things I like about myself? Put them in a little box, just shove them under the seat, and let rip."

Page played Simon in Bridgerton Season 1 but did not return in Season 2. On GMA, the actor further shut down speculation about his possible return.

"He is now married, he now has kids, he is emotionally available and communicating," Page said of Simon. "They lived happily ever after. We're not going to touch that."

Page will next star in the upcoming film Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.
