This scene could even make Lady Whistledown blush.

Queen Charlotte actress Arsema Thomas, who stars in the Bridgerton prequel as young Lady Agatha Danbury, recently spilled the tea about one of her favorite moments from the series. Let's just say it involves her acting alongside India Amarteifio, who plays the titular young queen, and a dog with diva-like tendencies.

"There's a scene with me and India where we're discussing intimate things, and it was extremely fun to film," Arsema exclusively told E! News' Francesca Amiker. "It was the very first scene we had filmed. And to just be able to come in with a very graphic scene and film with this Pomeranian that had its own temperament and did not care what the schedule was like… I really am excited for people to watch it."

Arsema's role as Agatha Danbury, whose older version is portrayed by Adjoa Andoh in Bridgerton, was also a career highlight she'll never forget. After all, the fan-favorite character is known for her forthright personality and sharp wit.

"I don't exactly even know what it was like embodying her besides something quite magical," Arsema added. "This is a woman that I think is such an empowering representative for Black women and to be able to step in her shoes, I was like, 'Am I ready?'"

But it was her character's growth throughout the season that personally impacted Arsema the most.

"We're actually quite similar in where we both start off—in different aspects, of course," she continued, "but then to see where she gets to, it's like a having a step by step on how to become an empowered woman and how just generous of a gift that is to get."

Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story is out now on Netflix.
