Taylor Schilling: 'Sex scenes are pretty easy now'
Taylor Schilling's sex scenes with Laura Prepon in Orange Is the New Black are "old hat" now.
The two women play on-off love interests Piper Chapman and Alex Vause in the hit Netflix show about a women's prison, which is set to return for a fourth series in June (16). There's been plenty of steamy scenes in the programme since it began in 2013, especially between Taylor and Laura, but luckily the ladies aren't phased by getting up close and personal in front of the camera.
"They're pretty easy," Taylor told Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine. "To me it's a bit of choreography, then everyone is on their way home. It's not comfortable, but it's simple. For Laura and me it's just old hat now.
"I don't know who wouldn't (have a nudity clause). But nobody is trying to sneak a nipple in there without telling you. Or an errant pubic hair!"
Production of the show takes place in New York, which Taylor loves as it allows her to stay in one place and relax. It also means the female cast members can hit the town together, going to restaurants and museums during their spare time.
Taylor, 31, feels disorientated when travelling for work and since Orange Is the New Black wrapped shooting last December (15), the blonde beauty has been jet-setting to the likes of London and Gran Canaria - for upcoming movie The Titan. After such a full-on schedule the star confirmed during her interview that she's "close to the finish line", but it hasn't been without its struggles.
"It's deeply difficult," she sighed. "It's not having a break in between. My body is not used to it. I miss my friends a lot, and I miss rest. I'm very much a creature of habit. I do well with a routine. You can reach maximum capacity and then I feel like I've hit a wall.
"You feel lonely but also so deeply plugged in with your work and you forget almost. But then it gets to the weekend when I do remember and it's like, 'Gosh, I haven't talked to anybody in real life for a week. I've only been talking to fake people, my fake friends and my fake family.' It's so crazy..."
