‘The Bridgertons’ does not stop setting audience records with its second season, new more ‘modest’ episodes whose sexual scenes have been commissioned by Lizzy Talbot, choreographer of the intimate moments shared by Kate and Anthony. This coordinator gives details of how those racy encounters starring the aforementioned characters of Simone Ashley and Jonathan Bailey were focused, emphasizing the contribution of both interpreters who turned completely.
“They know their characters completely”Talbot tells Insider. “They know exactly what their character would do in each moment, and thanks to that they can bring a lot to the scene. It’s always a gift when you have actors who really understand their characters”more so in this case, in which the success of the scene must not only be left to the mercy of chemistry, but requires a special interpretative dedication. This, seen from the point of view of the Regency, the time in which the series is set, It is a headache due to the showiness of the outfits. “A big part of designing any intimate scene in the Regency period is thinking about how to undress the protagonists, because it’s not easy”.
“Back then, they were often worn by other people, so all the closures were in the back. That’s always a real challenge because you’re working with two characters who are potentially not used to stripping the opposite sex in that way. Jonny and Simone had really wonderful suggestions on how to take off your own clothes.because obviously his characters put it on and take it off every day”. The idea stuck, even though Bailey’s character wasn’t exactly blind when it came to undressing a woman.
“It was really cool to see them suggest how to take off the gloves, or how they wanted Anthony to very deliberately take Kate’s stockings off“Talbot adds. “Jonny brought a lot of energy, charm and humor, while Simone was self-assured and collected. It was a really nice fusion”.
In addition, in line with the statements offered by Bailey in defense of the fact that there are few sex scenes in season 2, Talbot clarifies that it is necessary to remember the time in which ‘The Bridgertons’ is framed. “We see a different intimacy than Daphne and Simon because that couple gets married much earlier in the first season, hence their relationship is loaded with much more explicit details. [Con esta temporada] we’ve done the characters justice and really made sure that every sex scene clicked. We’ve stayed true to the female gaze, and I think we’ve also stayed true to the arc of the characters on their journey of forbidden love”.
The erotic of yes
Talbot talks about Ashley and Bailey’s suggestions regarding the choreography, but the star of the second season of ‘The Bridgertons’ brought much more to the first sexual encounter between his characters. In an interview with Bazaar, Bailey explains that one of the key dialogues of that moment arose in an improvised way.
“I think there’s something incredibly sexy about consent in general. [La línea en la que] Anthony says, ‘I’m going to stop. I’m going to stop’, it was not written, and that it’s something we decided to add, because I think it’s really important that he is respectful and understanding, and there will never be a time when that isn’t the most important narrative point. Anthony is obsessed with her throughout the series, so it makes sense that everything revolves around Kate’s pleasureHe wants to eat her. In addition, presenting Kate as a woman who knows what she wants seems great to me, it shows who these characters are and differentiates them from the couple from the first season.
