‘Bridgerton’ star says ‘intimacy coordinator’ helped shape the sex scenes everyone is talking about

The period that produced the Shonda Rhimes play became the latest play and struck a chord with everything from the cast (British Queen Charlotte is black and played by actress Golda Rosheuvel) to whether there will be a second season .

But the steamy sex scenes also caught the attention of the audience and according to one of the stars of the program, it was not that easy to make it look.

Phoebe Dynevor stars Daphne Bridgerton and told Grazia magazine the first scene she shot was a graphic one that an intimacy coordinator helped plan.

“And it was so wonderful because it felt safe and nice: you choreograph it like a trick, or a dance,” she said. “It’s crazy to me that it’s not been in the past. I’ve done sex scenes before. I can not believe I did it: it was only five or six years ago, but it would not be allowed now not.”

Based on the 2000 novel “The Duke and I” written by novelist Julia Quinn. -Zimbabwean actor Regé-Jean Page.

Dynevor said Page was ‘perfect cast’ and had a message for those who think black characters in a Regency-era series are unrealistic.

“Will Mondrick, the boxer, is based on a real boxer of the time,” she said. ‘And there were many rumors – and many historians still say – that Queen Charlotte was mixed. The fact that we have not seen these stories before seems insane to me. ‘

And those who are really hoping for more seasons can rejoice that Chris Van Dusen, the runner-up, has enough source material to work with, while Quinn has written a series of “Bridgerton” books.
