83. Fearlessly Failing: Steamy Bridgerton sex scenes with intimacy coordinator, Lizzy Talbot
Are you a Bridgerton fan like me? I binge watched it over the holidays and I'm listening to the soundtrack on repeat. I'm really excited to have interviewed Lizzy Talbot the intimacy coordinator from Bridgerton; you know those steamy sex scenes that leave you wanting more; well it's Lizzy's job to literally choreograph them, much like fight scenes are choreographed. Believe it or not; being an intimacy coordinator is a relatively new job, it's only existed in the last 5 years or so and for the cast of Bridgerton, this was their first experience working with an intimacy co-ordinator. Lizzy's job coverers advocacy, co-ordinating and choreographing safe simulated sex and/or nudity scenes.
If you've seen Bridgerton; you'll know there's some really steamy scenes, one of which occurs in a library, Lizzy explained that this scene was in fact the first scene that actor Phoebe Dynevor (Daphne Bridgerton) shot for the entire show, Lizzy explained that it felt so cheeky; because it was shot in a gentlemen's club (Reformed London) and up until 1981 women weren't allowed to even enter, pretty cool considering that this is the scene where Daphne has a sexual awakening.
Time stamp: 24:20 "Choreographing simulated sex to Wildest Dreams By Taylor Swift. What is that? That's amazing. it was really cool because it was such a surprise."
