What We Do in the Shadows season 4 spoilers follow.

What We Do in the Shadows' fourth season featured one of the funniest sex scenes ever committed to television.

In the show, Nadja (Natasia Demetriou) and Laszlo (Matt Berry) get intimate with each other, but it isn't your standard sex scene. Instead, the water-fuelled romp is one of the most hilarious and distinct scenes in the entire show.

Speaking to Digital Spy and others during a panel at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend, Demetriou shared her experience filming such an outrageous scene, which was directed by Yana Gorskaya.

"The scene we filmed—we actually did it in two parts: making love on the sofa and then falling to the ground we did a few months later because they had to build the water tank. It was the last thing I filmed and it was absolutely incredible," Demetriou said.

"Matt was improvising loads of stuff when he was actually pretending to drown and I was really confused in the moment whether I was actually killing him or if he was acting but, of course, he’s a professional and he can swim so he wasn't drowning. But it was amazing."

Demetriou continued: "And Yana was like directing it up above and hearing your director shout notes down at you while you're in a pool was an experience I'll never have again."
