Dear Edward star shares what it was like to film her first intimate scene
Dear Edward star Anna Uzele has opened up about what it was like to film her first-ever intimate scene.
The new Apple TV+ drama, which also stars Connie Britton, follows a 12-year-old boy who is the sole survivor of a plane crash. As he deals with the fall out of the tragedy, new friendships, relationships, and communities are formed.
Uzele, who plays Adriana in the show, spoke exclusively to Digital Spy about the series and how she worked with Idris Debrand on her first ever intimate scene.

"He is such a good actor. Oh my gosh. First of all, he’s British, and I would completely forget it every single day because his Ghanian accent was so on point. I fully, fully believed it every single day," Uzele said.
"I believed every single word that comes out of his mouth. It was so easy. His character is so pure, so full of love, so earnest."
Uzele then spoke directly about the intimate scene, which she said was "very, very easy" thanks to the two of them being friends during shooting as well as the assistance of an intimacy coach.

"We had a lot of milestones together. It was the first time I had ever done an intimate scene, and it was the first time he had, too. So it was lovely to just be friends during that journey. We had a wonderful intimacy coach named Heather who guided us through that process."
Uzele said: "And it was really fun. We laughed a lot, and he was like, 'What is your husband going to think about this?' And I was like, 'What’s your fiancée going to think about this?'"
She continued: "We just cracked up, and high-fived, and did our best. So it was lovely to have a buddy and a friend for these bursts. Yeah – love you, Idris. I’m grateful for you."
Dear Edward is streaming now on Apple TV+.
