Daisy and co-star Paul Mescal have been hailed for their performances

The actress has gained huge recognition for her performance in the show. In particular, the intimate scenes between her character Marianne and Paul Mescal's character Connell have been applauded for their authenticity and sophistication. But it seems that actor Paul also had an awkward moment while a loved-one watched those scenes, and they saw more than they bargained for!

Speaking on The Graham Norton show recently about whether his family tuned into the intimate scenes, the Irish actor said: "My granny warned my great aunt that there were a lot of sexy bits." He continued: "[She told her] that when she felt those were about to happen she should go off and do something else. In episode two when we started kissing she took the dog out. But she underestimated the time it would take and as she came back in we were right in the throes of it all. I suggested that a good long chore or a couple of cups of tea would do the trick next time!"
