“Bridgerton” actress Phoebe Dynevor is explaining how racy sex scenes in the hit Netflix show were choreographed “like a stunt, or a dance.”
The 25-year-old stars opposite Regé-Jean Page in a number of steamy situations.
Dynevor has now revealed that an intimacy coordinator was responsible for helping to make the scenes feel “safe and fun”.
“My first-ever scene was in episode six, where Simon is going down on Daphne,” she said, speaking with Grazia.
“And it was so great, because it felt safe and fun: you choreograph it like a stunt, or a dance,” Dynevor continued. “It’s crazy to me that [an intimacy coordinator] hasn’t been there in the past. I’ve done sex scenes before that I can’t believe I did: it was only five or six years ago, but it would not be allowed now.”
She added: “I love her [Daphne’s] coming-of-age story and her sexual awakening. I love seeing them female gaze and watching her figure it out for herself. She’s a late bloomer, but it’s not like she can google it.”
“Bridgerton” is streaming now on Netflix.
