The actor, who is best known as Viscount Anthony Bridgerton in Netflix’s steamy regency romance series, looked handsome in an elaborate green and gold suit and black boots as he filmed alongside Ariana Grande on set in Buckinghamshire.
Wicked, which is mostly set before Dorothy’s arrival in Oz, tells the story from the perspective of the witches, Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, played by Cynthia and Glinda, the Good Witch, played by Ariana.
Bailey plays Fiyero, who is at the centre of a love triangle between Elphaba and Glinda. He gets engaged to Glinda, but his true feelings for Elphaba gradually surface and he helps her escape.
The 35-year-old was seen filming scenes with Ariana and Michelle Yeoh, who plays evil headmistress Madame Morrible, on a purpose-built Land of Oz set in a farmer’s field in the village of Ivinghoe near Leighton Buzzard. Bailey, who had his hair slicked back, was seen on set hugging Ariana, 29, who was wearing an elaborate blue and purple sparkly dress and a dazzling tiara.
They looked relaxed together as they laughed and joked in between takes for the two-part Universal Pictures production, with Bailey putting his arm around Ariana.
