Anna Paquin on Pop's Flack in bed

Anna Paquin is heading back to television in 2019 with a new role where she’ll be a bit of a fish out of water. She’s set to star in Flack, a UK-based series where she’ll play an American fixer working in London. On thing that won’t be new to the actress is that she’ll occasionally be surrounded by nudity in the new series, actress, just like her former gig on True Blood. She addressed how this show gets around showing genitalia while at TCA.

Speaking out about the first trailer for Flack, which features a dressed Anna Paquin surrounded by nude gentlemen, the actress revealed the camera took great pains to make sure no one’s naughty bits were in full view. Per the actress,

Well, we're not allowed to show anybody's genitalia. So, head positioning was really important.

It sounds like a joke. Due to the scene in question and the cock socks the dudes had to wear for Flack, it’s really, really not, however. You can take a look at the full trailer for the series below.

Speaking to CinemaBlend and other outlets at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, Anna Paquin revealed more about the nude scene, noting that the really tricky part was shooting around the cock socks the dudes in the scene were wearing. Per the actress,

And the gentleman in question were wearing their cock socks. So we're also not supposed to see those, because then you can tell they're not really naked. So aside from the fact that it's a closed set, technically speaking – which just, you know, really went quite well with the fact that we were shooting in a real live hotel that didn't know we were essentially shooting porn up there – was it complicated? Well, if my head moved a few inches in the wrong direction a few times, we saw things we weren't supposed to see. Also, when you're pretending to give somebody chest compressions, apparently it's quite easy to accidentally fracture their rib cage and kill them. So that was one of the factors that day.

Avoiding porn shots and trying not to kill people -- all in a day's work. Anna Paquin's been pretty busy in recent years, headlining TV projects like Bellevue and Alias Grace. (She also has a stint on The Affair coming up.) However, her work in Flack sounds like it should be some of the most interesting since her HBO series wrapped up.

Considering we see Anna Paquin’s character Robyn getting some of her other clients out of sticky situations, not every single storyline in the TV series will involve Robin's head clearly cock-blocking the camera from showing any explicit genitalia. So, far we'll get to see Robyn's competently crush publicity in her professional life and total muck up her personal life through the first 6 episodes of the brand new series, which will air on Pop stateside. You can catch the new series starting on February 21, 2019. In addition, you can take a look at what else is hitting the schedule this winter with our midseason TV premiere schedule.
