We admit that we got a little hot under our collars Bridgerton’s sex scenes on your own – so imagine your embarrassment if you had to see it with your parents or grandparents.
One of the show’s lead actresses, Phoebe Dynevor, has revealed she had this exact problem when she was forced to skip entire episodes of the hit Netflix series just so her grandparents wouldn’t see she was being naughty with Lord Hastings.
Expressing her embarrassment to Mail on Sunday You magazine, she said, “The remote was always in my hand. We skipped the sixth episode completely. I said, ‘This is just not worth watching!'”
The actress went on to explain that watching the show was a “family affair” that included her grandparents, as she still lives at home with her parents, who include Coronation Street actress Sally Dynevor.
Bridgeton, which has been a great success to date and has around 82 million viewers worldwide, plays Phoebe as the oldest of the Bridgeton girls, Daphne, who falls in love with Regé-Jean Page’s character, the Duke of Hastings.
While many of us want a real romance between the two, Phoebe admits from day one that it was a ‘professional relationship’: “There was so much pressure on us to get it right that it was just about Work went We have a really professional working relationship. I’m actually happy about that. It would be very complicated if it continued. “
In fact, it was only revealed this week that her lover is actually being recorded on-screen
– and loved the writer and part-time soccer player Emily Brown.
While Phoebe went on to admit that despite the success of the show and because of the banning, her life is pretty much still the same as it was before.
“I’m still home arguing with my brother about doing the dishes and doing jigsaw puzzles with my father,” she says. “It’s very surreal because I know something is going on, but I can’t really see it.”
Based on the bestselling series Bridgerton by author Julia Quinn, the Netflix drama has thrilled viewers from the first episode. Last month it was also announced that filming for Bridgeton’s second series would take place this spring.
