Bridgerton actress Phoebe Dynevor recalls a hilariously awkward season 1 moment that occurred when she was filming a love scene with Rege-Jean Page.
Bridgerton actress Phoebe Dynevor recalls a hilariously awkward season 1 love scene moment. Dynevor certainly had her share of intimate love scenes with Daphne’s friend-turned-romantic-interest-turned-husband Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings (Rege-Jean Page). Netflix recently confirmed that Bridgerton would be returning for a second season.
One of the major sources of conflict during the first season of Bridgerton resulted from Daphne’s complete lack of sex education. It’s Basset who ends up teaching her about the art of intimacy while withholding one crucial detail about how children are actually made. Daphne and Simon end up thoroughly enjoying their honeymoon phase until Daphne figures out that Simon is lying to her about the fact that he actually can father children. Regardless of this, the couple still can’t keep their hands off each other, and ultimately have a happy season 1 ending with the birth of their son.Continue scrolling to keep reading

Dynevor revealed that some scenes she filmed with Page weren’t so sexy behind the scenes. She revealed a hilarious moment that happened during season one filming during an interview with The Netflix Afterparty (via E! Online). Check out what happened below.
“We were filming on a Saturday one day, and I was not wearing much. It was summer, so me and Regé were sort of in robes and flip flops, filming at this very beautiful palace. They do tours on weekends. So we happened to be there while they were doing a tour, with tourists with full-blown cameras, ready to go. And I had my wig on, and I sort of look like the girl from The Ring when it’s all down. I ended up walking into a toilet with my robe and my hair down and looking pasty white as I am. I gave a family of tourists the shock of their life, I think they thought they saw a ghost.”
Dynevor paints a hilarious picture of the awkward moment. It’s amusing to know that filming Simon and Daphne’s love scenes had a light tone behind the scenes. Hopefully, the entire Bridgerton cast will have the chance to reveal more fun behind-the-scene stories before, during, and after they begin filming season 2, which will focus on Daphne’s brother, Anthony, this spring.
Daphne and Simon’s love story was the focal point of season 1, and the incredible chemistry between Dynevor and Page made each of their shared scenes sparkle with genuine passion. It’s difficult to imagine a second season without their presence. It’s great that Bridgerton will follow the order of author Julia Quinn’s original Bridgerton family novels, with season two following the events of The Viscount Who Loved Me, but the beauty about television adaptations is that production does have some creative flexibility. After all, Anthony had a season 1 love story subplot with the opera singer Siena. Why not let Daphne and Simon raising their baby be a subplot in season 2, with scenes of the couple also enjoying some new romantic moments?
Bridgerton is unapologetically sexy, romantic, and fun to watch. Daphne and Simon’s love story might be over, but fans will likely still burn for some of their fire in season 2. A premiere date for the highly anticipated season 2 has yet to be confirmed, but it will likely be worth the wait.
