The 37-year-old actor also spilled that she has a special clause in her contract so that her scenes don't get too revealing, unlike most of her co-stars.

"It's literally written into my contract," Coughlan said. "People think I'm like saying it as a joke. I just don't want to."

The Derry Girls star added that it was her Irish Catholic upbringing that influenced the decision, saying simply, "That's ust not how we vibe."

Coughlan joked that her mother didn't react very enthusiastically to the first two seasons because of its many erotic scenes.

"When she first saw Bridgerton, she didn't know it was gonna be so saucy," Coughlan said of her mom. "And then you get a bottom, Jonathan Bailey's lovely bottom, about two minutes into the first episode ever. And she was like, 'What is this?'"

Thankfully, the Big Mood actor's parents have warmed up to the period drama.
