Former Doctor Who actor Christopher Eccleston said that “A-list” actress accused him of groping her on the set during an adult scene earlier in his career. He called the allegation an abuse of power. He told the Independent,
“I did a s*x scene with an A-list actress—not Nicole Kidman, who was brilliant—and she implied, in front of the crew, that I was copping a feel. Because she didn’t like me.”
“I was fortunate that happened to me before the Harvey Weinstein stuff came to light, so I wasn’t put in the stocks for it. But I’ve never felt more betrayed by a fellow actor than I did that day.”
“I have to say to you that I would sooner have put my hands in a food blender than copped a feel of that person. It was an abuse of power, what she did.”
“I don’t think that would have happened with an intimacy coordinator on set. I could have been accused of all manner of things… that’s about what passes between actors, with trust and the abuse of it.”
“Those are a wonderful innovation in the industry. Not just because it protects people, but to creatively decide how a scene should be played. If I were a writer, that would be very important to me—because the way people have sex is how they communicate.”
However, Christopher is the first actor who parise the relatively recent advent of intimacy coordinators in recent months.
