Sean Teale laughed his way through Skins sex scenes
Sean Teale has admitted that he found filming sex scenes for the new series of ‘Skins’ “hilarious”.
The young actor – who plays golden boy Nick Levan in the E4 teen drama – confessed that he wasn’t shy or awkward during filming, because he spent the entire time “mucking about” with the crew.
He explained: “That was hilarious. The day when I had that erection scene, it was just so funny. Half the crew were dressed up in dresses anyway, mucking about. It was just a fun day. I’m walking around with a strap-on on – obviously things are going to get silly!
“It was a lot of fun and it wasn’t particularly awkward because we all knew it had to be done. It would be a bit more awkward if it was real!”
Despite being “incredibly close” to co-star Freya Mavor – who plays his on-screen girlfriend Mini McGuiness – Nick explained the couple’s romance could soon be set to come to an end when his alter-ego realises it’s Mini’s friend Liv Malone (Laya Lewis) he’s really into.
He added to Digital Spy: “He can’t get Liv, he’s losing to Matty (Sebastian de Souza), he needs to do something, he can’t lose everything, so he tries to reconcile his troubles with Mini – trying to ignore the fact that Mini probably knows he cheated, which is quite a strange concept.
“And obviously they’re just not clicking. It all boils up in a bar when Nick gets drunk and starts to realise he’s with the wrong person.”
