Charlie Brooks of EastEnders reveals his biggest sex scene fears ahead of new drama Lie With Me
Charlie Brooks of EASTENERS revealed his biggest sex scene fears ahead of his new drama Lie With Me.
In the scary Channel 5 drama, Charlie plays Anna Fallmont, who moves to Australia with her family after infidelity rocked her marriage in London.
They hire a young local nanny called Becky who isn’t as innocent as she looks, and deadly consequences ensue.
The drama features steamy sex scenes, and while Charlie wasn’t really involved in it, she was still thinking about how she would react if asked.
Speaking to The Sun’s TV Mag, Charlie – who played Janine Butcher on EastEnders – admitted there was a sense of relief about it, saying, “I couldn’t believe it. Nobody needs it. to see that.
“Although there is a part of me that kind of feels comfortable with it because all the women, of all different shapes and sizes, are on screen, so if I was faced with that , I don’t know how I would feel about it.
“I don’t know how lucky I would be, ‘oh, all my pieces are lying around’ can’t you shoot from below? ‘ “Don’t get my double chin” I should be a breathing statue. “
Charlie, 40, stars alongside Neighbors star Brett Tucker and she joked that she wouldn’t mind if their characters got a little scorching.
She laughed, “I mean, have you seen Brett? I would have liked a little more onscreen action.
“No, they have an intimacy coach these days which I had never heard of before and this is the first time I have met one even though I didn’t have that much privacy.
“They did a brilliant job choreographing the dance going on between them and making them feel comfortable, but I’m not getting that sexy.”
The series was shot in Melbourne and Charlie loved the city so much that she would like to spend more time with his longtime partner Ben Hollington.
She said: “It was so good. I absolutely had a love affair with Melbourne and I want to work there again and come back and live there for a little while.”
Lie With Me begins Monday, July 12 at 9 p.m. on Channel 5 and will air for four consecutive nights. TV Mag is available every Saturday, only in The Sun.
