I don’t like looking at myself naked and I sure as fuck wouldn’t want anyone looking at me naked. So yes, I admire those that have the courage to show themselves naked on television and movies.
If you have seen Normal People, you know that there is a lot of naked in the series. Paul Mescal‘s performance as Connell Waldron in the Hulu show is phenomenal.
And he went full frontal in Normal People. But how did he feel about that?
“I’m not concerned about it because I made a choice that this project is something that I’m proud of,” Paul said to Mr Porter, adding “well, on paper, that makes sense.”
In the fifth episode of the series, the actor goes full frontal and I will admit that I had to rewind and take a second look, because I thought I was imagining things.
There are also a lot – and I do mean A LOT – of sex scenes in Normal People. But they are all so realistic and beautifully shot. So much so that to a point you feel as though you are prying in on peoples personal lives.
The actors sex scenes were choreographed by an intimacy couch, Ita O’Brien.
“We would discuss the scene and then Ita would block what we had discussed, so it wasn’t mine or Daisy’s responsibility to decide what was appropriate… You’re told what to do. It’s freeing!” he added.
Well Ita did an amazing job. Cause those scenes are absolutely beautiful and passionate.
