NETFLIX drama You has recently released its eagerly anticipated third season, with actors Penn Badgley and Victoria Pedretti revealing a secret struggle behind its steamy sex scenes.
The psychological thriller – which is one of the most-watched shows on the streaming service – follows the creepy return of serial killer Joe Goldberg and his strange obsessions with the women he meets.
Playing Joe and Love Quinn-Goldberg, the couple have become the perfect poster white-picket fenced suburbanite family after welcoming their beautiful baby son, Henry – or so you'd think, anyway.
Though the actors have played a couple all throughout season two, the new filming experience provided a host of challenges, with its sex scenes becoming a problem in particular.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Victoria revealed that filming intimate scenes with each other was difficult initially in terms of their safety.
“This is not a show where you can be like, ‘nobody’s going to kiss, it’ll be fine’, so it took months to figure out how to do it safely,” she told Entertainment Weekly.
“I felt very lucky that they start off their relationship at odds with each other, navigating the awkwardness of being new parents, because it felt strange to be physically intimate very early on – even though we’re supposed to be a married couple.”
Fortunately, Victoria said she and Penn began to feel more comfortable as time went on.
“It’s weird. We have a rapport. We played a couple before, but it didn’t just immediately come back after being in a global pandemic," Victoria continued.
Penn agreed, adding: “It’s really true, the implications of all that stuff was really felt.”
Showrunner Sera Gamble also revealed that they were “really lucky” to be able to do the show the way they wanted.
Badgley added: “There were significant rewriters throughout the whole season to try and negotiate around these scenes that would require a lot of people.”
The show will also be returning for season four, with die-hard fans desperate to know what will happen to Joe after a shock twist ending.
Sera added that Joe has a “hole in his heart” and that fans will have to wait and see what will fix it while exploring his “baggage”.
She teased: “The story from here, if we get to tell it, is about how he gets any of [that loss] back or how he finds something else.”
You is available to stream on Netflix.
