*WARNING: Spoilers for Sex/Life season two below*
Sarah Shahi has opened up about working with real-life boyfriend Adam Demos on season two of Sex/Life, admitting that they couldn’t keep it together during one scene.
The pair met on the set of the steamy Netflix drama in 2020, and became close, and confirmed their romance later that same year.
Although they became inseparable off screen, Sarah – who plays Billie Connolly – insisted that they are able to put their romance ‘aside’ to concentrate on their characters on set.
However, the 43-year-old confessed that they weren’t able to stop giggling while filming the scene where their characters eventually tie the knot in a romantic wedding.
‘It definitely creates a lot of giggles between the two of us having to film that wedding scene’ she recalled.

‘But he still is one of my favorite scene partners because everything becomes very easy with him – whether or not it’s a scene about loving one another or hating one another – all I have to do is kind of look at him and my work is done. I’m pretty lucky in that aspect.’
It was a rollercoaster season as Billie ended her marriage to Cooper Connelly (Mike Vogel) but lover Brad Simon (Adam) had already moved on with Gigi (Wallis Day), meaning that she was forced to explore other options.
She eventually fell in love with chef Majid (Darius Homayoun), but they were unable to make it work in the end.
In an emotional finale, Billie made her way back to Brad and they got married in the final moments – where she revealed that she was pregnant with his child.

Discussing reprising her role for the second series, Sarah admitted that she wanted to star opposite Adam more than the script allowed.
‘We were pretty happy to come back and both of us love our characters so much,’ she added to People Magazine.
‘I would’ve wanted to be with him more, only because I think just because we’re in a relationship together and when you’re working, the hours are pretty grueling, and so you really don’t see each other as much if you’re not there at the same time.’
Adam previously spoke about starring opposite Sarah, describing their working relationship as ‘effortless’.
‘It didn’t influence the way we acted, because the thing is, we met as actors. So, we’re very well-aware that’s our job, and that we have a job to do,’ he told the Hollywood Reporter. ‘What’s home is home, and once on set, you’d be professional and you do your job.
‘The lines don’t get blurred like that. We’re both there to do a job and make sure we do it well. If anything, I find it easy to act with her because there is chemistry there, of course. Sometimes it feels very effortless.
‘In some scenes, it can be easy to feel the heartbreak when I’m looking at her upset, because I know her as a person.
‘But at the end of the day, we met as actors. We care too much about repaying the favor to these people who trusted us with these characters. But it does feel a little easier because there’s that connection that we have already.’
Sex/Life season two is available to stream on Netflix now.
