Bridgerton's Nicola Coughlan speaks on the drama success and says she was 'daunted' by her racy sex scenes as she takes the lead in season three

Nicola Coughlan has admitted she didn't know whether Bridgerton would be popular with viewers when she first joined the cast, Daily Mail writes.

The actress, 37, has taken centre stage as Penelope Featherington in the third series of the racy Regency drama, which follows her romance with Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton).

But Nicola has confessed that she didn't know if Penelope would get her turn in the spotlight as she was unsure if the Netflix hit would be renewed past its first series.

Posing for a stunning magazine photoshoot, she told Marie Claire Australia:  'I remember reading the books and thinking, "Geez, these are really steamy, that's gonna be a lot," but we didn't know if the show would get picked up after the first season.

'Once we found it was going ahead, it was definitely daunting.'

Despite her uncertainty, Bridgerton has become one of Netflix's most-popular shows since its 2020 debut and its second series broke single-week viewing records.

Nicola has taken centre stage in series three as Penelope's blossoming romance with Colin is followed, with the pair going from friends to lovers in a much-awaited story.

Nicola recently teased that series three of Bridgerton will be even raunchier than the previous two, and hinted that fans can expect one 'very naked' sex scene.

The Derry Girls star said filming sex scenes were her favourite part of the season and said she would have struggled to do them with anyone but Luke, who plays Colin.

'Luke and I are really good partners and we had a lot of trust in one another. I would have struggled to do it with someone else, because we could talk about it and text about it and we had a lot of say in how those scenes were done,' she told Marie Claire Australia.
