When it comes to his relationship with Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom has a habit of revealing a bit too much at times – and it seems like this time is no different.

Ahead of the release of his new Amazon Prime show Carnival Row, the actor took a moment to open up about his sex life with his fiancée, telling news.com.au that he feels "pretty good" about his participation in life on the love, religion and sex fronts.

"I would say that sex is a really important part of life because it's a way to connect, it's a way to show intimacy," he added.

"Intimacy is an incredibly important part of life because if you can be intimate with somebody, then you're blessed, right?"

The couple confirmed earlier this year that they had gotten engaged after three years of dating on and off, and Orlando added to the publication that the couple are "doing great" right now.

"Being engaged is a lot of work, but we're building a castle that we can inhabit – a metaphorical castle," he explained.

"For both of us, we feel old enough and wise enough to know that the odds are stacked up against any relationship. In every important relationship, it's always the little things you do for each other that add up.

"Things like writing a note, showing appreciation for that person and making sure they feel that you care, that you see what they're doing, that you appreciate what they're doing and that you try to make them feel safe and connected and grounded.

"That's something that I think we both try to do for one another," he added.

Carnival Row stars Bloom as human detective Rycroft Philostrate and Cara Delevingne as refugee faerie Vignette Stonemoss. Things soon grow complicated for Rycroft when he develops feelings for Vignette when he's charged with investigating a series of murders on Carnival Row.

The series has been created for Amazon Prime Video by Star Trek: The Next Generation's René Echevarria and Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams veteran Travis Beacham, and was renewed for a second series a month before the first run even aired.

Carnival Row will premiere in over 200 countries on Friday, August 30 in English on Amazon Prime Video, with foreign-language versions to arrive later in the year.
