The Witcher season 1 : why Anya Chalotra (Yennefer) did not use lining for the sex scenes

It is in the skin of Yennefer that Anya Chalotra is revealed in the season 1 of The Witcher, the new event series from Netflix. And for the good of her character, the actress has denied the use of a lining, even for the sex scenes. Attention spoilers.

An actress true to her character

The Witcher is not (yet ?) Game of Thrones, but the series Netflix has already benefited from the season 1 to put in scene a few sequences of sex and nudity. Moments always complicated to play for an actor or an actress, but as Anya Chalotra – the interpreter of Yennefer, was keen to turn itself despite the presence of a lining on the trays.

“I only used a liner for the very first sex scene” she admitted to Metro, prior to explain why it was important for her to be finally at the centre of the action then : “I quickly realized with this scene that I was not comfortable with the idea that someone else embodies Yennefer. Because in the end, [be lining] it’s still in the game. I found it hard to attend to it“.

No scene is unnecessary

However, if the actress is happy to have been able to give life to Yennefer in all its forms, “These intimate moments between Yennefer and Istrid, it was me“, she is also relieved not to have had the need to constantly play naked, “we realized that we could turn a lot of these scenes without nudity“.

Also, like Emilia Clarke in Game of Thrones, Anya Chalotra is proud of the fact that the scenes in question were never free : “The only things for which I had to put myself naked were those scenes that were used to actually develop the story and were really needed“.

Hopefully, things won’t change in season 2.
