Ewan McGregor had a nude bath scene in the premiere episode of Fargo.

The 46-year-old actor had to gain weight to play Ray, while also portraying Ray’s brother Emmit in dual roles.

“You see my naked body,” Ewan recently said (via Vanity Fair). “Although I wear some padding for Ray to make him heavier, this scene had to justify that padding. It wouldn’t make sense for me to wear padding and not be fat when I got out of the bath. So when I got out of the bath, I was properly overweight for me.”

He added, “I’m a small guy. I’m not really used to carrying weight. It doesn’t make you feel great. I like to feel fit and healthy. But it was effective. It worked.”

Fargo airs Wednesday nights @ 10PM on FX.
