Sean Teale: ‘Skins’ sex scene was ‘awkward’

Skins actor Sean Teale, who plays rugby captain Nick in the E4 show, has described filming one of his character’s sex scenes as “seriously, seriously difficult to endure”.

Teale told CultBox: “To an extent, I have no problem doing it with the cast, that’s what we’re there to do, that’s just the way it goes. But with the guest actress who’s in Episode 5, that was awkward.”

He continued: “It wasn’t that it was unprofessional, there weren’t any issues between me and her – it was purely the fact that I had literally just met her!”

He added: “She was really great, but the bit where she starts crying mid-sex… that’s seriously, seriously difficult to endure when that’s on top of you! I’m not sure if it ended up being cut from the episode actually.”

Episode 5 of the current series, focusing on the character of Nick, aired last night on E4.
