Max strips off in period drama

Max Irons admits that filming sex scenes for period drama The White Queen was a strange experience.

The actor, who plays King Edward IV in the series, quickly got used to being directed when getting steamy on screen with co-star Rebecca Ferguson.

We had to do three sex scenes in a day very early on in the shoot,’ says Max, 27.

There’s someone off camera shouting, “Right, orgasm now! And finish…”

Once you’ve done one, it gets easier.’

Good-looking Max – the son of actors Jeremy Irons and Sinéad Cusack – also had to don a rather unflattering garment to film the raunchy footage.

It’s OK [stripping off] once you get used to wearing a really weird-looking thong that makes you look like a eunuch!’ the former model quips.

The White Queen concludes in August.
