Actor Tom Hiddleston has revealed that he had to do multiple takes of the famous love-making scene in The Night Manager to make it look “believable.”

In a recent interview, the 35-year-old actor said that the Danish director, Susanne Bier, motivated him to shoot the scene time and again as she felt it was not “sexy enough,” reports Channel 24.

The Crimson Peak actor, who played spy Jonathan Pine in the BBC One crime thriller, upped the oomph quotient when he grabbed his co-star Elizabeth Debicki and made passionate love to her up against a wall in the steamy sequence.

Elizabeth played Jed Marshall in the series and the pair’s erotic performance was so convincing that it set tongues wagging that there was a real spark between them. But Hiddleston later clarified, “it was all acting.”
