Claire spoke to BBC Radio 4’s “Woman’s Hour”, via The Guardian, to promote her new series, A Very British Scandal.

She said of filming sex scenes that “it’s a really hard line because basically you do feel exploited when you are a woman and you are having to perform fake sex on screen. You can’t help but feel exploited.”

Claire went on, “It’s grim – it’s the grimmest thing you can do. You feel exposed. Everyone can make you try to not feel that way but it’s unfortunately the reality. But my thing was that I felt very strongly that it had to be in it, but I wanted it to be female.”

“I did not want it be that sort of awful climactic sexual experience you often see on the cinema screen.”

Also starring Paul Bettany, A Very British Scandal focuses in on the highly publicized divorce of the Duke and Duchess of Argyll.

It will premiere on BBC One across three nights, from December 26 to 28. It will be available for U.S. viewers to watch on Amazon in 2022.
