The star also chatted about his role in Bridgerton, and joked about warning his family not to watch some of the more risqué scenes. While on The Today Show, he said: "We missed one of my cousins. She sent me a message that was like, 'I had to make so many tactical cups of tea during the show.' She said, 'I came back, and you were still going, so I had to go back and put the kettle back on.'

"So my family are very stimulated and caffeinated at this point, which sounds like a deadly combination," he joked.
