Simon Quarterman Says He's Thankful For His Full-Frontal Scene In HBO's Westworld
The second season of Westworld is underway and we were blessed with a full frontal scene within its first few episodes.
HBO is a cable station that’s not afraid to put naked bodies on our viewing screens. That said, shows like Westworld or Game of Thrones usually only film boobs and man pecs with only a few exceptions for shots of lower regions.
That said, it looks like Westworld is one upping Game of Thrones when it comes to giving viewers the full frontal we all so desperately demand.
The sci-fi tv show included a full frontal scene with actor Simon Quarterman and many were taken aback (in both positive and negative ways).
In reaction, Quarterman spoke with Vulture to say he doesn’t regret the scene. In fact, he wishes more male actors would do the same
(So do we).
” Jonathan and Lisa talked to me about it and asked how I’d feel about doing that. My immediate response was, “Sure, whatever you need.”
“It’s not often that we see a man naked. It’s a rare thing. Women have to reveal a lot all the time, and it felt so in keeping with what we were doing with the themes and with the tables being turned.”
Quarterman added: “I found it incredibly powerful, actually. When we were shooting, I was very clear to the team that they could shoot it however they wanted to. I thought it was important for that scene to happen.”
Finally, Simon Quarterman noted that he feels that he benefited from doing the scene.
“I’d recommend it to anyone. I was really concerned about that moment. As you can imagine, you’re sitting in an auditorium full of a bunch of people. You know it’s coming up and you’ve built yourself up to this. And it’s coming, I’m about to get naked in front of everyone here. After it occurred, it’s quite liberating because it is shown now. Can’t go back, can’t hide that anymore. It is just a body. I mean, we’ve all got one. It’s very liberating.”
