talent. It’s not fair to say to an actor they “might” have to appear nude in a love scene if you know that “might” really means they “will.”
Reinforce this point at casting calls by highlighting specific roles and scenes in the script that will require nudity. Keep sides (not a full version of a script) available for actors to read. This allows an actor to read the context in which nudity plays a part in a scene.
I’ve been asked many different kinds of questions when casting roles that require nudity. Usually it’s “can you shoot the role without the nudity?” or “what will exactly be shown on camera?” It’s helpful to have this dialogue with potential actors early on. I have found as a director that when actors ask questions it helps tighten my vision of how I will shoot those scenes. Be clear and direct on what will be expected of actors
