Yael Stone who plays lovelorn inmate Lorna Morello in “Orange is the New Black,” revealed to Huffpost Live during an interview with co-star Selenis Leyva that she was a virgin when she filmed her first sex scene reports The New York Daily News.
When discussing the sex scenes on the hit Netflix show, Stone was asked if she had filmed any previously.
“That’s interesting that you would ask that,” she said. “I’ve never said this, but I did my first sex scene before I’d actually had sex in real life.”
“It was a leap of imaginative faith,” Stone added, “A lot of times we create roles and their experiences we haven’t had but we have to imagine it. I happened to do that as a young 15-year-old person.” The scenes were in a 2001 miniseries called “The Farm.”
When Leyva asked what research she did, Stone laughingly replied, “Made out a little.”
Earlier the Aussie actress spoke about the often graphic sex scenes in the prison show.
“The sex scenes are also a privilege, and we have to see it that way,” she said. “'If it’s written by great people — these people that write the show are really smart, we can trust them — I do feel like those scenes are really necessary. It’s a big part of (prison) life.”
