  • Phoebe Dynevor is opening up about shooting those Bridgerton sex scenes alongside Regé-Jean Page.
  • The actor plays Daphne Bridgerton alongside Regé's Simon in the hit show.
  • "I never really felt exposed at all," Phoebe said of filming the more intimate scenes with her co-star, revealing just how "choreographed" they were.

Phoebe Dynevor says she "never really felt exposed at all" during those sex scenes with co-star Regé-Jean Page.

Phoebe plays Daphne in Netflix's Bridgerton alongside Regé's Simon. The two are a couple in the series and later go on to share a few steamy scenes together.

Phoebe and Regé recently addressed dating rumours and opened up about watching those scenes with their family. Now, Phoebe says in an interview with The Guardian: "I'm happy for Mum and Dad to see it, because they know the industry, and they know how hard I worked, and how much it meant to me getting that role."

She added: "But not my grandparents. And with my younger brother… well, it's awkward."

She went on to reveal, however, just how those scenes actually went down, sharing that they were "intricately choreographed" – "like stunts".

"I would literally know exactly where a guy was going to put his hand at what moment," she said. "And we'd have props, like mats, that went in between us. It was more intricately choreographed than our dance routines in a way, so I never really felt exposed at all."
