First, bathing him in a tub and, second, lying motionless -- appearing reluctant and disengaged — beneath him in bed while he has sex with her.Carey, who was 17 at the time she read the script and 18 at the time of filming, says in an interview with that she was initially «scared» of performing the scenes with the then-47-year-old Considine.«We have an intimacy coordinator who was amazing,» Carey told the outlet«Again, still being 17, the first scene that I read from the show was my sex scene and my intimacy scenes, that includes the scene where I'm bathing the king — anything that felt intimate was considered an intimacy scene, which I thought was great.»An «intimacy coordinator» is someone whose job is to choreograph simulated sex scenes on film and television sets while being mindful of the wellbeing of the actors involved. «But, it scared me, because at that point I still hadn't met Paddy, I didn't know how much of a joy he was and how easy he was going to make [the scene], and all I saw was, you know, a 47-year-old man and me, I was a bit concerned,» she continued.
