Filming a sex scene is tricky business as it is, but it becomes even trickier when you have to keep the chit-chat to a minimum when the cameras aren’t rolling.
Actress Casey Wilson was faced with such a problem, as she made it her mission not to probe Sam Asghari on his romance with none other than Britney Spears.
Appearing on SiriusXM’s “The Jess Cagle Show” on Monday, the “Happy Endings” star described the difficulty of working with the singer’s beau, who is now her husband, at the height of the “Free Britney” movement.
Asghari, an actor in his own right, appeared in three episodes of Showtime’s hit series “Black Monday” alongside Wilson.
“We really love Britney and wanted her freed desperately,” Wilson told hosts Jess Cagle and Julia Cunningham. “We wanted to be just obviously appropriate and not ask the thousands of questions that we had.”
To avoid asking questions she’ll later regret, Wilson said she opted for a slightly unconventional approach.
“We were like, ‘Let’s pretend we’re aliens who have just come down to Earth. We don’t even know what music is,’” she said. “‘Like, we’re not of that world. We’re thespians.’”
Wilson filmed a raunchy sex scene with Asghari for the show’s season 3 premiere.
“Sometimes God puts you in a time and a place,” Wilson added. “You’re the chosen one. Someone has to simulate sex with this man in the middle of what’s happening with Free Britney. And it was me.”
The #FreeBritney movement launched in early 2019 following online speculation that Britney was being held in a mental health facility against her will — which she later confirmed in explosive court testimony last June.
The pop icon was famously freed from her conservatorship on Nov. 12 after 13 years of being under the control of her father, Jamie Spears.
