The hit series Bridgerton has been the topic of conversation for many since its debut, especially for its romantic carriage scenes that have fans swooning.  Recently, the actors Luke and Nicola, alongside the episode director, revealed some intriguing production secrets that add to the charm of the scenes.

Surprisingly to fans, the iconic carriage scenes were not filmed outdoors but on a soundstage with a real, moving carriage.

 But how did they make it look like the carriage was galloping through the countryside?  The answer lies in the impressive work of the studio crew — by rigorously shaking the carriage from the outside, they created the convincing illusion of movement.

The whole scene wasn’t just done in a couple of takes but actually filmed across three days, Luke Mewton told Vanity Fair.

Because of the limited space in the carriage, there were no actual camera people inside, just cameras and the crew all watched from monitors outside, whilst others shook the carriage.   “We knew what we were doing and the general choreography of it.   But it started to feel really long,” Nicola said to Netflix’s Tudum.

Nicola was told to ‘hold back a little’ on the kissing.

And finally, Nicola revealed that she had to be told to tone down the kissing a bit because “Penelope hasn’t kissed anyone before,” and they wanted to “hold it back a little” for future scenes when Pen is more experienced.

She also said they learned how to kiss “prettier” on screen, adding, “Also, what we learned, and it was quite funny, is that sometimes what feels good for kissing in real life doesn’t look as good on-screen!  So, we were smushing our faces together, and they were like, ‘No, pull back a little bit, and then it will look prettier.'”
