Bridgerton‘s Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page sat down to discuss one of their most swoon-worthy scenes, which occurred on their character’s wedding night. 

While participating in Variety’s Making a Scene video series, the duo admitted they were both stunned by the audience’s feverish reaction to the special way Dynevor’s character Daphne Bridgerton tells the Duke of Hastings (Page) she’s in love with him.

‘You have no idea what lines people are going to care about,’ the 26-year-old actress said, nodding to the iconic moment she says: ‘I burn for you.’

She continued: ‘That was surprising to me. It wasn’t like I saw ‘I burn for you’ in the script and was like, ‘This is what people are going to talk about.’  

In response, Page theorized fans were under the ‘Mandela effect’ because many of them wrongly attributed the line to his character. 

‘I do not say, ‘I burn for you!’ It’s not my line!’ he clarified. ‘Everyone clearly was feeling very burned for, which I’ll take as a compliment.’

Speaking of her choice to deliver the line in an almost questioning manner, Dynevor explained she wanted to make the dialogue sound ‘as organic and as real as possible.’

‘There’s no other way to play saying a line like that than to make it an inward feeling,’ she noted.  

Meanwhile, the hit Netflix drama’s director Sheree Folkson added, ‘It’s so much more sexy to watch the anticipation of sex than actual sex. So I just wanted to drag [it] out as long as I could… having to undo the laces and the buttons, it delays it.’

Late last month, Dynevor broke her silence over Page’s exit from the show, which left fans devastated.

The pair became household names after landing the roles, but Page, 31, broke hearts across the nation when he confirmed in April that he would not be reprising his role as the Duke of Hastings.

Speaking about her co-star’s decision on Variety’s Awards Circuit podcast, Dyvenor talked about learning the news with just a ‘bit of a heads up.’

‘I knew but yeah, I guess it is a spanner,’ she noted. ‘But again, the show centers around the Bridgertons and there are eight books.’

The Younger star explained: ‘I think maybe the fans of the books were more aware of that happening than the fans of the show. I think fans of the books know that every episode is about a different sibling.’

Despite her pal’s departure, she reminded listeners that the second installment of the popular period drama, based on Julia Quinn’s novels and produced by Shonda Rhimes, was always set to star ‘the lovely Johnny, who plays Anthony.’

‘We’re very much passing the baton,’ the beauty said. ‘Obviously it’s sad to to see [Page] go but I’m looking forward to being reunited with my with my family.’

While reflecting on the success of Bridgerton, she recalled ‘shooting the last scene in episode one’ where she and Page had their ‘first dance together.’

‘I remember thinking, wow, this feels kind of special,’ she admitted.

Additionally, Dynevor spoke of the hard work required of her leading role, which included piano lessons, etiquette classes and learning how to ride horseback.

‘We had six weeks prep, so it was pretty mega,’ she said. ‘I was so nervous about dancing because I’ve always thought of myself as a terrible dancer.’

With the assistance of a ‘great dance instructor’ she enjoyed learning to bust a move.

She and Page also worked with an intimacy coordinator to ensure their love scenes looked ‘very consensual’ even though ‘Daphne has no idea what she’s doing.’

‘It was finding that balance and how we were going to portray that on screen in an authentic way,’ the daughter of screenwriter Tim Dynevor and actress Sally Dynevor said.
