Katherine Ryan has revealed she would rather have actual sex on camera than to film another ‘cringe’ sex scene in a movie.
The comedian and actor, 37, was so mortified at having to simulate sex on camera for her show The Duchess that she thinks doing the actual deed would be less horrifying.
Katherine, who will be appearing on The Jonathan Ross Show on Saturday, explained why she wrote that scene in: ‘I felt like you needed to believe in the intimacy of that relationship, so I wrote a sex scene. I just figured it would be fine.
‘It’s so cringe and it takes so long and I’m unprofessional. I just found it difficult.
‘I think it would have been easier to have full sex on camera – then I could really let loose and show my personality… But no, I won’t be writing any more sex scenes ever again.’
Katherine had written The Duchess based on her own experience as a single mother, and she wanted to focus the show on her relationship with her daughter.
She explained: ‘[My daughter] Violet was born here. I loved being a single mother. That’s the central relationship in the show.
‘I’m really tired of rom coms where it’s, “If only I could get a man”. That’s never been my story. I fall in love with them accidentally every now and again. I don’t seek them out,
‘I just want to hang out with my daughter. Those were the most cherished times in my life, when she was little and it was just the two of us.
‘I loved our life so much. Now, she’s getting older and she doesn’t like me that much. That’s what I got a husband for.’
Katherine is now in a civil partnership with Bobby Kootstra, who she had previously dated while living in Canada as a teenager.
The pair reconnected when Katherine returned to her hometown while filming an episode of Who Do You Think You Are?.
The Jonathan Ross Show airs on Saturday at 10.15pm on ITV.
