English Actor Sean Bean in a recent interview talked about the passionate intimate scenes that didn’t get the natural essence because of the intimacy coordinators who turn them into mechanical nudity which in turn makes the scene soulless. The Game of Thrones actor is currently starring in the Snowpiercer thriller series after joining the series in the second season.
He has worked for many television roles including Accused, Broken, Game of Thrones, etc, and has contributed to the big screen roles in the movies like The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Troy, Silent Hill, and others.
Sean Bean Blames Intimacy Coordinators for Disrupting Passionate Sex Scenes
The Lord of The Rings actor shared his opinions via Variety to the UK’s Times Magazine criticizing the intimacy coordinators, who “spoil the spontaneity” of passionate s*x scenes.
“It would inhibit me more because it’s drawing attention to things.” He added, “Somebody saying, ‘Do this, put your hands there, while you touch his thing… the natural way lovers behave would be ruined by someone bringing it right down to a technical exercise.”
The actor went on to share his experience in 1993 starring opposite Joely Richardson in the series Lady Chatterley and stated, “It was a joy. We had good chemistry between us, and we knew what we were doing was unusual. Because she was married, I was married. But we were following the story. We were trying to portray the truth of what DH Lawrence wrote.”

While the actor has shared his opinions on the intimacy controllers, he also stated that the decision depends on the actress when the interviewer stated the purpose of the intimacy coordinators who help to protect actors in the wake of #MeToo allegations, “I suppose it depends on the actress. This one [referring to Lena Hall] had a musical cabaret background, so she was up for anything.”
He had mentioned the sex scene that he shared with his Snowpiercer co-star Lena Hall with the help of a mango, sharing,
“I think they cut a bit out actually. Often the best work you do, where you’re trying to push the boundaries, and the very nature of it is experimental, gets censored when TV companies or the advertisers say it’s so much. It’s a nice scene, quite surreal, dream-like, and abstract. And mango-esque.”
The actor starring in Snowpierces is an American thriller television series that premiered on TNT back in 2020 and is based on the 1982 French graphic novel Le Transperceneige which will conclude after its fourth season.
