Things got so steamy the scene went viral for weeks! Outside of them sharing a kiss, this was Colin and Penelope's first intimate moment together. And Season 3, Part 2 picked up just where things left off, and with just as much spice!

After proposing to Penelope, they reached another milestone in their relationship by moving things from the carriage to the bedroom. This scene was beautiful in so many ways because not only did he profess his love to her, but he also reaffirmed her as a person — acknowledging her intelligence, kindness, and, of course, her beauty.

But despite making viewers sweat, these moments can actually be painfully awkward, and sometimes extremely funny, for the actors involved behind the scenes. Luckily, with a great intimacy coordinator and their real-life friendship, Luke and Nicola were able to share more laughs than winces during these scenes.

In a recent interview with Men's Health, Luke opened up about filming erotic scenes in front of cast and crew, and the one moment he and Nicola couldn't stop giggling.

Because he was going to be naked or partially naked, Luke said he didn't really think about how he'd look on camera until he saw himself in the mirror wearing his intimacy garment.

"I was wearing my intimacy garment," Luke told Men's Health. "Which is just like a sock with a cup on it, sort of taped on you up in the front, and I saw myself in the mirror and started laughing."

“I had a robe on, so I went to Nic and said, ‘Nic, I need to show you this before we do a take, because you’ll just laugh at me, and it won’t be this romantic, sexy scene anymore."

Once he showed her, they both couldn't help but giggle. The hard part came when it was actually time to film the scene because they had to try and suppress those giggles.

"In the end, it was actually fun. The production allowed us the time we needed. I think we shot one of those scenes over three days. And it’s quite a short scene—five minutes, maybe. But having that luxury meant there was no pressure. No ‘let’s go, let’s get on with it, let’s get to the next scene.’ It felt surprisingly relaxed.”

Although they did enjoy themselves, Colin said he initially assumed things would get a little tricky as he attempted to simulate sex with his close friend, but he said the overall experience felt very comfortable.

“In your head, you imagine getting undressed in front of one of your close friends and then simulating sex with them, and of course you imagine it’ll be really awkward,” Luke said. “But we actually felt really comfortable because there was already a sensitivity from knowing each other through all these years—not just as Luke and Nic, but as the characters.

“Because their story is a friends-to-lovers story, there needs to be that history between them. And because of our friendship and our rapport on set, each of us could predict how the other person was going to play it, so there was more trust there.”
