 "Bridgerton" star Nicola Coughlan says she had an alternate cut of the Netflix series, popular for its intimate scenes, included in her contract for her Irish Catholic family.

Her comments came during an interview on radio show SiriusXM Hits 1 after the hosts cited reports that she had asked for a PG version of the show.

The Irish actor, who as Penelope Featherington will take on a more prominent role in the upcoming season three of the series, said people tend to think she is joking.

It's literally written into my contract. People think I'm saying it as a joke. I just don't want to  We grew up Irish Catholic. That's just not how we vibe, Coughlan said.

The "Derry Girls" star also described her mother's first impression of the series.

When she first saw Bridgerton,' she didn't know it was going to be saucy. And then you get a bottom  Jonathan Bailey (who plays Anthony Bridgerton)'s lovely bottom  about two minutes into the first episode ever. And she was like, What is this?' But then now she thinks it's fantastic and really funny, she added.

Based on the bestselling romance novels by Julia Quinn, "Bridgerton" hails from Shonda Rhimes' Shondaland. It follows the stories of the Bridgerton family, primarily focusing on the lives and love stories of the eight children.

The new season will focus on the budding romance between Penelope and Colin Bridgerton, played by Luke Newton. Season three finds Penelope finally giving up on her long-held crush on Colin after hearing his disparaging remarks about her in the second season.

Netflix will premiere the third season of Bridgerton in two parts: the first on May 16 and the second on June 13.
