The 'intimacy coordinator' from Bridgerton has revealed how cast and crew members avoided any awkwardness when filming some of the show's racier scenes.
Lizzy Talbot explained how each aspect of filming was so well rehearsed that any embarrassment was "ironed out" beforehand.
Bridgerton is Netflix's most popular show to date, with a record 82 million households around the world watching the series in its first 28 days.
It was confirmed last month that it has been renewed for a second season, with a focus on Lord Anthony Bridgerton this time around.
Ms Talbot told Newstalk Breakfast with Susan Keogh how she undertook the role after first working in the theatre and then moving onto stunt work and intimacy coordination.
"An intimacy coordinator is someone who looks after the advocacy for cast and crew on set and also does all of the choreography for the intimate scenes," she explained
She was contacted by the producers of Bridgerton to be part of the show, then subsequently met with the cast members and they got down to the "nitty-gritty" about what everyone is comfortable with in terms of intimate scenes.
"They [the producers] were very specific with me, they said 'we want this from the female gaze', which was very unusual and particularly interesting," she said.
Any awkwardness when filming on set "has been ironed out beforehand" as everyone knows what they're doing, Ms Talbot added.
There was extensive rehearsal time allotted when making Bridgerton, meaning that people were very aware of what they had to do before each scene.
"One you get into it, it's like a fight or a dance at that point because you know exactly what movement's happening and which hand is going where," she said.
"I think that removes a lot of the awkwardness because you're not sitting there wondering 'what do I do next'."
Ms Talbot stated it was wrong to assume that intimacy coordinators are the first people to care about actors' safety as for years there have people on set advocating for the cast, even if it wasn't specifically in their job descriptions to do so.
She explained: "I think it's just been quantified as a job at this point, and we're there to facilitate all of the intimacy from start to finish.
"No one was really there to facilitate that before so things could get waylaid, things could get misconstrued, and of course there have been nefarious directors and producers out there for many years.
"So it's just sort of a bit more regulation into something that you would expect from any other physical discipline in the arts."
