Why Bridgerton Star Nicola Coughlan Chose to Be Naked on Camera

Irish actress, Nicola Coughlan who starred as Penelope Featherington in the Netflix series- Bridgerton says she found filming intimate and sensual scenes of the new season very empowering.

The brand new season revolves around the love story that builds between Penelope and Colin, and in classic Bridgerton style, there are several steamy scenes.

The 37-year-old star told PEOPLE that she requested for certain moments and lines to be included during the filming of intimate scenes with co actor Luke Newton.

“I specifically asked for certain lines and moments to be included.”

“There’s one scene where I’m very naked on camera, and that was my idea, my choice.

“It just felt like the biggest ‘f— you’ to all the conversation surrounding my body; it was amazingly empowering,” she said.

“I felt beautiful in the moment, and I thought: ‘When I’m 80, I want to look back on this and remember how f—ing hot I looked!'”

Coughlan said she feels “great” about the nudity in the season “because not only did I consent to it but I drove it.”
