The Wrong Girl star Jessica Marais talked about her sex scenes with actor Ian Meadows.
Marais portrays breakfast TV producer Lily Woodward in the new Channel Ten series. The character longs for a life full of romance, a dynamic career and a happy family. However, she will be constantly thrown off course as she finds the right guy.
In the series, Lily will hook up with her closest male friend Pete Barnett, played by Meadows. This will complicate their existing friendship.
Marais revealed some details of the sex scene she had with Meadows. The South Africa-born actress admitted it was not sexy at all, but totally awkward. “It is quite comical. There’s literally someone like 10 centimetres away from your face with a camera pointed at you. And they all try not to look as they are trying to be polite and be respectful of the fact it is a difficult scene,” she told The Daily Telegraph.
Lily will be in more trouble when she mistakenly sends an awful email written by her flatmate to her boss and to the hot chef her show is trying to work with. According to The New Daily, the email talks about “turds” and “sh*t sandwiches.” Lily will try to repair her friendship with Pete and her professional relationship with Chef Jack Winter (Rob Collins).
