Paul Mescal and Andrew Scott Open Up About Their Intimacy in ‘All Of Us Strangers’

All of Us Strangers

Paul Mescal and Andrew Scott have opened up about their onscreen romance for the ghostly gay film ‘All Of Us Strangers.’

Mescal and Scott talked to Entertainment Weekly to discuss about their “intimacy” for their critically acclaimed queer movie.

In the interview, Scott, 47, joked that they only knew of each other “a little bit” before the filming of ‘All of Us Strangers,’ but “not as well as we know each other now,” which alluded to the sex scenes that the two shot together. 

“We know everything. The whole kit and caboodle!” he jested.

The two actors also quipped about their Irish heritage which helped them understand what director Andrew Haigh wanted to go for. Mescal, 27, said that being Irish meant expressing something the Irish people are still processing to this day. He claimed that he thinks the reason why Irish actors are good at acting about “stuff beneath the surface” is because they are “repressed.” 

On the themes of intimacy which was strengthened by the two’s performance, Haigh added that he wanted to express the “feeling of connection” plus being “vulnerable” and then allowing oneself to “feel a bit freer and then tense up and be nervous and awkward and then let the sexuality of it override you. It’s all of those things.” 

Haigh added that regardless of whether it is the first time with someone or in a long-term relationship, sex is bound to be complicated.

Meanwhile, Scott tacked on that playing being in love with someone is “the best, completely wonderful thing to be able to do.” He remarked that he and Mescal were starting to get to know each other as people. 

“We were starting to get to know each other [as people], as well. Beyond our preliminary friendship, it was like both of those experiences were coexisting,” Scott said.

‘All of Us Strangers’ opens in theaters on December 22.
