Lena Hall, who actor Sean Bean said “was up for anything” while filming a sex scene, has responded to his comments.
Hall appeared next to that game of Thrones star one snowpiercera TV series based on Bong Joon-ho’s film of the same name, from 2020 to 2022.
During an interview with The times On Saturday (August 7), Bean discussed the introduction of intimacy coordinators for sex scenes in the wake of the #MeToo movement in Hollywood.
Bean, who has been criticized for his comments, said of Hall, with whom he filmed an unaired sex scene, “She came from a musical cabaret background, so she was up for anything.”
Hall, who played Miss Audrey on the show, has now responded in writing to the comment on twitter on Monday (August 9): “I probably need to clarify some information in this random article as people are reaching out to me like ‘girl are you alright?'”
“Just because I’m in the theater (not cabaret, but I do it every once in a while) doesn’t mean I’m ready for anything,” she continued.
Hall called Bean “a great actor” who “not only felt comfortable, but felt like I had a real acting partner in these bizarre scenes.”
She further emphasized the importance of intimacy coordinators, calling them “a welcome addition to the set.”
Hall continued, “If I’m comfortable with my scene partner and with others in the room, I don’t need an intimacy coordinator. BUT if there’s a part of me that feels weird, gross, overexposed, etc… I’ll either question the necessity of the scene or I’ll want an IC.”
Speaking of intimacy coordinators, Bean said in the controversial interview, “I would imagine it slows the thrust. Ha, not the boost, that’s the wrong word.
“It would inhibit me more because it draws attention to things. Someone who says, “Do that, put your hand there while you touch his thing…” I think the natural way lovers act would be ruined if someone brought it down to a technical exercise.”
