Earlier this week, Dynevor told Grazia that the first scene she shot for the entire eight-episode series was an oral sex scene with her fictional husband Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page). The scene appears in episode six of the show and was carefully choreographed with intimacy coordinator Lizzy Talbot.

In the show, which is set in 19th Century England, people of color are equal members of society so the on-screen dukes and duchesses are far more diverse than they are in traditional period pieces. During the same interview with Grazia, Dynevor praised the show's casting choices.

"Bridgerton" has yet to be officially renewed for a second season, but the show's creator Chris Van Dusen has teased several follow-ups to the period drama. He told Collider: "This being a family of eight children and there being eight books, I would love to be able to focus and really tell stories and love stories for all the Bridgerton siblings. For each character, for sure. I would love that."
