A FEW THOUGHTS ON NUDITY
by Katrina Law
I have received several letters asking me about how I handled all the nudity on the show and I thought it was a really good topic to blog about. I wanted to try to explain all the things that an actor goes through when he or she is both considering handling such a scene and also when they are actually shooting it.
When I was given the audition for Spartacus, the very first question I was asked was if I was okay with doing nudity. My initial reaction was to say, “No!” But I asked the Producer what sort of nudity was being done on Spartacus and why was it being done. Was it simply to titillate and for shock or was there a deeper motivation behind those scenes?
