Speaking on Belstaff’s The Road Less Travelled podcast, hosted by Reggie Yates, Mackey said: “The first time I even read the script, I was like ‘I don't know if I can do this’. Regardless, I never thought I was going to get the part in the first place.
“I was like ‘you might as well just try’ but reading the script, I was so taken aback by it. I was like ‘I can't, I don't know if I can’. I was quite prudish about it all anyway.
“Luckily like we were just really well looked after from start to finish, even before we started filming, we were given all of these tools by Ita O’Brien, who's the intimacy coordinator.”
She added: “The tools we were given were specifically to prevent any sort of like, trauma post-sex scene. We were given all these tools like psychical consent and we choreographed it quite significantly.”
