Most women would kill to have a sex scene with Jamie Dornan, but actress Bronagh Waugh said being naked with the actor isn’t that sexy.
Bronagh, 32, plays Jamie’s on screen wife in drama series The Fall, and admitted a sex scene from last season was seriously awkward.
“We had a lot of nakedness it was really awkward. We had to get in to the bath in the first season,” she explained.
“It was a tiny, tiny bathroom and we had eight crew squeezed into it. I had a tiny little modesty plaster on, Jamie held my hand and helped me into the bath.

“I had a fight with the director I wanted bubbles, everyone wants some radox but he said ‘no no this will be arty’.
“So Jamie lowered me into the bath, and I get down and I’m lying in the bath and he’s looking up to me,” she revealed.
“His shoulders start shaking like he’s looking, he’s looking at my lady garden and the modesty plaster had lifted up and had taken flight down the bath
“It was awful, there is nothing sexy about sex scenes on TV.”
Speaking to Ryan Tubridy on the Late Late Show Bronagh was joined by fellow Irish actress Aisling Franciosi who stars as Katie in The Fall.

The Dublin actress admitted she had no idea who Jamie was when she started on the show, but since his casting in Fifty Shades of Grey all her friends are jealous.
“The funny thing is I didn’t know Jamie was cast, I wasn’t really sure what he looked like.
“But then in the second season when you say to particularly females that you are working with him you get a reaction.

“I was expecting some hate reaction on social media because I got to bite his lip but I didn’t,” she explained.
“I’m really protective of him, he’s really great.”
