Amanda Seyfried is reminiscing about her career and the pressure she felt to shoot n*de scenes when she was a teenager. Even as a newcomer, Dropout Emmy nominee actor wishes there had been intimacy coordinators to help with awkward situations.
As a 19-year-old, “walking around naked – like, are you kidding me?” Asked by a reporter with Porter, “How did I let that happen?” she replied. “Oh, I see now: I was 19 at the time, and I didn’t want to offend anyone or lose my job. The reason for this is because of this.”

It was on soap operas like As the World Turns that Seyfried made her name. As Lilly Kane on Veronica Mars, she would also play a pivotal role in the season-long mystery, which lasted the entire season. Seyfried previously stated that she felt “grossed out” when boys approached her and asked her for a weather forecast because her character was able to predict rain based on her breasts in this most recent film.
“I must have been about eighteen at the time. She described the experience to Marie Claire magazine as “just disgusting.” According to Game of Thrones actor Sean Bean, intimacy coordinators “spoil the spontaneity” of scenes, which is why he doesn’t like them.

Bringing it down to a technical exercise, he said, would ruin the natural way lovers behave. “Because it’s drawing attention to things, it would be more difficult for me to do my work.”
Star of West Side Story Rachel Zegler expressed her displeasure with Bean’s remarks, stating, “spontaneity in intimate scenes can be unsafe.” When personal moments are being filmed and actors and production are working together, intimacy coordinators can now join SAG-AFTRA as members of the national board.

When it comes to filming personal moments, intimate coordinators have a significant impact on safety and well-being, says Fran Drescher, the union’s president. Adding intimacy coordinators to the ranks of SAG-AFTRA members will provide them with the same level of benefits and protections that other members already enjoy, according to the National Board.
