Broadchurch's Eve Myles talks about those intense sex scenes
Eve Myles reveals that it wasn't as steamy as it appeared

It might have looked sensual and sexy when Broadchurch's Claire and husband Lee Ashworth got it on in Monday's episode of the hit crime thriller on ITV, but actress Eve Myles admitted that it was far from either when she and actor James D'Arcy filmed the scenes.
The scene which featured Lee lying on top of Claire as she instructed him to tie her up next time, took a bit of a Fifty Shades of Grey turn. But when we asked Eve about it, the actress dismissed that idea and likened the scene to being as "sexy as a wet banana". Yes, quite.
"Sorry James D’Arcy. It was as sexy as an old cloth", Eve, who joined the cast in series two, laughed as she added: "It was bizarre because obviously when you get a scene like that, what people don’t understand that it is choreographed within an inch of it’s life. It’s like a dance. You talk it through. You know where you’re hands are going to go. You know where you’re going to kiss, you know what you’re going to do. You make sure the person opposite you is completely comfortable and aware of everything that’s going to happen. We had the conversation and we went through it like a dance, we knew exactly what we were going to do."
Revealing how long it took to film the not so sexy sex scene, Eve, whose character has started to become a suspect in the Sandbrook case, continued: "What you see - which is one or two minutes on television - takes two and a half hours to film.

But this is where it gets funny because whilst Claire looked like she was having the time of her life, Eve was actually making a shopping list in her head of what to buy to take on holiday. Reenacting what was said between her and James when the cameras stopped rolling, Eve began: "So two hours of D’Arcy, sweating naked on my back, he gets off and says - as she puts on a posh accent - ‘Darling I’m so sorry. Oh God, this is such an ordeal for you. I’ve been on top of you for two hours'. I was like, 'Oh no I'm so sorry because in two weeks time, I'm going on holiday with my kids and all I can think about is what [sun cream] factor to put them in'.
Eve revealed that James was "devastated" when she told him what she'd been thinking about during it (ITV)
"I said I've just been doing a boots list of toiletries. I did a list of toiletries in my head for two hours going, 'Yes, for the first three days they will be factor 50, right I'm probably going to need three bottles of aftersun just in case'. So I was making this list with a naked James D'Arcy on my back". And it didn't go down to well when Eve told James what she was thinking about. After adding that she was also thinking about how hot she was and what was for lunch, she said of her on-screen husband: "He was devastated when I told him."
