‘Bridgerton’ star on those sex scenes and playing Meghan Markle

“Bridgerton” actress Kathryn Drysdale spent part of last year time-traveling. 

On the set of the hit Netflix show, she squeezed into a corset to play high-society seamstress Genevieve Delacroix — and alternated that with morphing into a much more contemporary figure, Meghan Markle, on British sitcom “The Windsors.”

Drysdale, 39, wisely isn’t taking sides in the Megxit drama, declaring herself both Team Meghan and Team Royal Family. 

“I really like Meghan Markle,” the 39-year-old actress told Page Six. “I think she’s a strong, independent woman. She hasn’t changed who she fundamentally is to fit in anywhere. She sticks by the things she believes in.”

The “Vanity Fair” star also doesn’t see Prince Harry and Markle’s shocking decision to bolt the UK for California as anything too serious.

“It’s like any newlyweds, isn’t it? You get married and you try something out for a couple of years and you think well I might fancy living there for a bit and I think when you have a family your priorities change,” she continued. “So yeah I mean some people think they’re not members of the royal family anymore, I think they still are, they’ve just had a bit of time out to raise their son and take a little bit of a breather.”

And as for “Bridgerton,” Drysdale admitted she had no idea that the new period series would become a global sensation.

“We knew that it was good but we didn’t ever expect the response to be quite as extraordinary as it has,” she revealed. “It’s a testament to the writing but the feedback has been people really enjoyed the inclusivity of it and seeing themselves represented on screen and being something they can escape into during a really dark time in people’s lives.”

And those racy sex scenes are fundamental to the show, Drysdale explained, calling them “pivotal to Daphne’s journey … This sex was never something we looked at and thought was naughty. We knew that it was integral to the story we were trying to tell. The scenes were quite beautiful and a lot of women watching those scenes want to be Daphne.”
