Coronavirus recommendations limit the amount of time that actors can interact, so what will have to scenes of intimacy? Intimacy coordinators, who've been hired in recent years, to protect actors on set, are trying to find creative ways to sustain their work. For instance, Sex Education intimacy coordinator Ita O'Brien had to figure out how to coordinate a scene in which actors spit on each other. She found a way to have the scene filmed that ensured the safety of the actors. “At the end of the day, that’s what an intimate scene is,” she says. “It’s two people moving together physically at whatever rhythms, to tell the story. And that needs a professional who is practiced in the whole art of the dance … When their personal body is being taken care of, it means that professionally they can bring all of their skills of acting to the intimate content.” ALSO: Shows like Queer Eye will have to avoid hugging in the pandemic era.
