If You're Obsessed With A Certain Steamy Scene In The Second Part Of "Bridgerton," Here Is A Hilarious Pic Of Nicola Coughlan Behind-The-Scenes

WARNING: Spoilers for Bridgerton Season 3 Episode 5.

If you've been keeping up with the Bridgerton lore, you may be familiar with the tale that Nicola Coughlan and Luke Newton literally broke furniture while filming a steamy scene. Now that Season 3 is fully out, we can fully confirm that that moment was the whole chaise lounge bit.

"We were just going for it! We've worked together for so long that we can communicate without having to say much — I knew we both thought, 'We're killing this!'" Nicola said in a new interview before mimicking the sound of wood splintering.

"They had to repair it," she continued of the real antique furniture. Alas, the moment did not make it into the show as Nicola immediately broke character and spoke in her Irish accent. Luke added, "There's a beautiful moment where they laugh, and we were obviously laughing in that moment."

Indeed, courtesy of Nicola's Instagram, we even have a photo of the aftermath:

In the same interview, Nicola explained what happened with the carriage scene in the previous part of the season. "It was filmed on a sound stage in an enclosed carriage," she began. "We were waiting for the director to call cut when we went to Bridgerton House."

"The director is known for wanting multiple options of stuff, so we just went with it," Luke said, with Nicola adding that she eventually decided to end the scene after what felt like "ages" of kissing.

"Then there was silence. Andrew [Ahn], the director, came to the window and went, 'What were you doing? I was shouting stop! Stop!'" Nicola recalled. "We, hand to god, did not hear him."
