The actor felt very comfortable bringing the intimate moments to life, as he explained to Digital Spy.
“You know what, it sort of felt like stunts and brilliantly so, because we had an intimacy coordinator, which is relatively new I think in the industry, and I can’t believe there was ever a time when they weren’t in place,” he shared.
“Because of that, it was all incredibly safe and it became really fun,” added Bailey, before referencing his co-star’s professionalism.
“Sabrina Bartlett [who plays Siena Rosso] is brilliant, who a lot of my creamy scenes were with, and we knew each other socially from years before, so we hit the ground running.”

The Broadchurch star also discussed how Bridgerton will provide a platform to express on-screen sexuality in a new light.
He explained: “It was a brilliant opportunity to show how there’s different ways in which you can have sex.
“You can tell the story in their relationship and their power dynamic and how they’re feeling in that one moment, in the way they do interact sexually.
“So yeah, it was brilliant. I really enjoyed it.”
