Nicholas Coughlan He says he’s going to ask the creators of Bridgerton to make “the PG version” of his character’s sex scenes, after finding the prospect of filming them “terrifying”.

The actor plays Penelope Featherington in the successful Netflix drama, which has become famous for its intimate scenes.

While Nicola has so far been spared filming those moments on the show, which debuted its second series on Friday, she is aware that the novels the drama is based on mean there is a lot in store for Penelope.

Speaking at a Bridgerton press event, Nicola said (via Digital Spy): “I mean, it’s exciting and it’s terrifying. I think because when I signed up for this show, because it’s based on the books, I knew that her love story would come at some point, but it felt like a moment in the very distant future. And I already know his love interest, it’s Colin Bridgerton.”

She continued: “Luke [Thompson, who plays Colin] and I used to joke about it all the time, and then it gets progressively less funny and more intimidating as time goes on…

“I’m really interested in how it’s going to play out because she’s quite modern in a lot of ways in the sense that she’s a business woman. She is very serious about her career, but she also wants the love, she also wants the marriage that she wants.”

Revealing the request she intends to make to the producers, Nicola said, “I think I genuinely am and I’m not kidding, I’m going to ask Shondaland for a special cut for the whole family. Because I think it’s embarrassing enough to see the scenes where I’m not there like that.”

He continued, “I’m just like haha, so I think I’m going to put a special request in my contract to say, can we get one that’s the PG version, like maybe a little kiss and then you’re good, because I’ve read the book .

“So I know he gets extremely raunchy in that scene. I already know things that are going to happen. So I’m like, no, we’re good. We are fine. It’s intense.”

While Bridgerton’s sex scenes are a talking point, there are actually far fewer of them in the new season than there were in the first.

Explaining the change, creator Chris Van Dusen told attendees at a Bridgerton press conference on Monday (via Metro): “We’ve never done a sex scene for the sake of doing a sex scene and not I think we will never.

“Everything has a greater purpose and it’s a different story this season. Different characters, where we’re with Anthony and Kate most of the season and that’s very different from Daphne and Simon.”

Both seasons of Bridgerton are now available to watch on Netflix.
