Caity Lotz Talks Sex Scenes
Caity Lotz, the actress who portrays Sara Lance/ White Canary on the CW show Arrow, spoke during a panel at POPSUGAR’s Play/Ground Fest about the reality of being on set during a sex scene.
“Any time there’s any kind of sex scene, it’s always kind of nerve-wracking.” Lotz revealed. “And when you have to be in like lingerie or anything like that. When I first got cast on Arrow… Which, if you’re Arrow fans, you probably already know that there was another Sara Lance in the very first pilot episode. And then when we reshot that, with me getting sucked out of the Gambit, I had to be in lingerie. And it was literally the same lingerie that the other girl wore. And they’re like ‘Here, it has to be this.’ And I was like ‘It doesn’t fit me. My boobs are too small.’ And they’re like ‘We’ll just fill it, it’s fine. It has to be the same one.’”
It is not the first time celebrity has opened up about the awkwardness of a sex scene but who can blame them, I would definitely not to be naked with my co-workers either.
Lotz opened about her character’s Bi-sexuality and the sex scene with Chyler Leigh.
“And they always shut down sets anytime there’s like a sex scene, or like when Chyler Leigh and I had our one-night stand on the crossover.” Lotz continued. “And we were naked in bed, and they cleared out the entire set, and everyone makes a huge deal out if it. They’re like ‘Are you comfortable? We’ll clear everybody out. If there’s ever anything that feels uncomfortable, just yell stop, and we’ll stop.’ And I’m like ‘Can you just calm down? Everyone just take a break. Just be normal.’ That’s always nerve-wracking.”
Hollywood is a completely different world than our everyday jobs but I always find it interesting to hear into a aspect of their life you would never know existed.
