I do a lot of nude film work. I do it because I’m not afraid to see nudity as another costume. So my question is “would the character do this?”. And generally I can accept that they would.

So, for me, performing nude isn’t for any shock value and it’s certainly not to show off a body in the peak of physical condition! But simply because I am comfortable to do so. And want to challenge myself to do so in situations where that comfort level is broken. For example, a recent film required me to be fully nude, feet buried in the ground, wrists tied to two tree trunks whilst fully stretched. The challenge being that any member of general public could have stumbled across the shoot location and I would be fully exposed to them until and unless a member of the crew covered me up. So mentally strengthening me by allowing the release of control to others.
