The 25-year-old actress has some intimate scenes with co-star Regé-Jean Page and she revealed in a new interview that these were actually some of the first ones they filmed!
Phoebe confirmed there was indeed an intimacy coordinator on set to make sure everyone felt comfortable.
“My first-ever scene was in episode six, where Simon is going down on Daphne,” Phoebe said in an interview with Grazia. “And it was so great, because it felt safe and fun: you choreograph it like a stunt, or a dance. It’s crazy to me that that hasn’t been there in the past. I’ve done sex scenes before that I can’t believe I did: it was only five or six years ago, but it would not be allowed now.”
She added, “I love her [Daphne’s] coming-of-age story and her sexual awakening. I love seeing them female gaze and watching her figure it out for herself. She’s a late bloomer, but it’s not like she can google it.”
Wondering how old Daphne is on the show? The books provided the answer!
