If you missed it, earlier this week Sean shared his thoughts about using intimacy coordinators—and they were not well received.
The Game of Thrones actor stated that he believes that coordinators “destroy the spontaneity” of shooting a sex scene and “hinder” his performance.
And while Sean is obviously not a fan of intimacy coordinators, Emma is speaking out to share her belief that they’re “fantastically important.”
“You can find people going, ‘It made me feel comfortable, it made me feel safe, it made me feel like I could do this job,'” Emma said on the Australian radio station, Nova.
Then she immediately called out Sean’s “spontaneity” comments, shutting down the idea that sex scenes should be done naturally.
“And no, you can’t just let it flow. There’s a camera there and a crew. You’re not on your own in a hotel room, you’re surrounded by a bunch of guys, mostly,” Emma said.
She added that overall it’s just “not a comfortable situation.”
“intimacy coordinators create an environment of safety for actors… spontaneity in intimate scenes can be unsafe. wake up,” Rachel wrote on Twitter.
Jameela added: “It should only be technical. It’s like a stunt. Our job as actors is not to make it look technical. Nobody wants an impromptu grope…”
Despite many actors speaking out, Sean has yet to respond or clarify his comments.
