Connor opens up about their romance during an interview with The Telegraph last year.

He insists, 'There is no confusion to be had between our sex scenes on the show and our own personal life.'

The actor believes it's important, 'not take anything from your own personal life when you’re doing a sex scene.'

He goes on, 'You don’t want to show people how you have sex, so you think about what animal your character would be.'

'That way it’s like you’re not taking anything from your own life.'

Connor explains, 'When you do that, you get home at the end of the day and you’re depressed and you feel vulnerable, because you’ve just shown people what you do in the most personal, vulnerable situation.'

He reveals the cast learned how to act out these scenes at an intimacy workshop.
