Bridgerton Season 3: Nicola Coughlan Gets Very Naked!

Nicola Coughlan plays a prominent role in the third season of Bridgerton.

As the character Penelope Featherington, Coughlan starts looking for a husband early on, changes her wardrobe and enters the marriage market.

This new sense of empowerment for Penelope is an example of art imitating life… as Coughlan explains in a new interview that she made a request to producers this year when it came to her portrayal on screen…

…she wanted to reveal everything.

“I specifically asked to include certain lines and moments,” the actress told Stylist magazine this week. “There’s a scene where I’m completely naked in front of the camera, and that was my idea, my choice.”

Coughlan may not have the ideal body, at least not according to her critics – most of whom are completely unknown on the internet.

To her great credit, the Netflix star refuses to let these criticisms influence her work. Or her confidence.

“It just felt like the biggest ‘fuck you’ with all the conversations around my body; It was incredibly powerful,” Coughlan says of her decision to pull out of Bridgerton entirely.

She added to Stylist:

“I felt beautiful in that moment and thought, ‘When I’m 80, I want to look back on this and remember how damn hot I looked!'”

Amen! We absolutely love it.

Coughlan had never filmed a sex scene before her role in Bridgerton.

Previously, in a conversation with the Los Angeles Times, she expressed high praise for how comfortable she felt with Like Newton, who plays Colin Bridgerton, her character’s lover in the Netflix drama series.

“At the end of the day we both lay naked under a blanket and relaxed. We thought, ‘That’s why nudists do this,'” she told this newspaper a few days ago.

Unfortunately, it took a while for Coughlan to get to this point.

In 2022, Coughlan urged critics to leave her alone in an emotional Instagram post.

“Hello! So just one thing: If you have an opinion about my body, please don’t share it with me,” the actress wrote alongside a mirror selfie.

“Most people are nice and aren’t trying to be offensive, but I’m just a real human being and it’s really hard to bear the weight of thousands of opinions about your appearance sent directly to you every day,” Coughlan continued continued. concluded as follows:

“I understand that I am on television and that people have something to think and say, but I ask you not to send it directly to me.”
