As far as steamy period dramas go, we're big fans all round - making Netflix's Lady Chatterley's Lover adaptation our brand new favourite watch.
The film premiered on Netflix on Friday, prompting a whole load of chatter from viewers - from the one detail that fans all agree on, to everyone's same reaction over star Jack O'Connell.
Of course, viewers have been particularly focused on the movie's steamier moments, with O'Connell and co-star Emma Corrin now opening up about their already-iconic naked dance scene.
To recap, Lady Chatterley's Lover sees Corrin and O’Connell starring alongside one another as Lady Constance Chatterley and local gamekeeper Oliver Mellors. When Lady Chatterley becomes unhappy in her marriage, a forbidden but passionate romance ensues between the pair.
As for the duo's naked dance scene, the moment in question features the pair dancing nude in the rain - with Corrin and O'Connell now opening up about how the moment wasn't choreographed.
Speaking to the Radio Times, O'Connell revealed, 'I've been naked on camera before so it couldn't be any worse. I've been naked on stage. I think what was especially daunting is that you didn't know how it was going to pan out. Because literally, the description was just dancing in the rain.'
Corrin went on to share that the scene was left to play out naturally, saying that the cast and crew chose not to choreograph the moment in order to make it spontaneous. They explained, 'I'm glad we didn't, but it also did mean that like it was completely up to us in the moment of what we did, and like we just had to sort of dive in.'
Sharing his initial apprehension over the scene, O'Connell added, 'I didn't know how it was gonna unfold. But I think thankfully, I feel like we got to a place that was freeing and liberating, but you know, still made sense as well.'
Lady Chatterley's Lover is streaming now on Netflix.
