Elsewhere in the film, Joely Richardson also stars as Sir Clifford’s nurse, who can be heard asking who is looking after Connie when she is looking after him.

It comes after, Emma, who uses the pronoun ‘they’, spoke about the freedom of filming naked scenes with Jack in Lady Chatterley’s Lover in an interview with The Cut, which is accompanied by an edgy photoshoot.

They said: ‘I’m so glad that it didn’t feel like gratuitous nudity. We spoke about that a lot when we started rehearsing. 

‘We always wanted any sex scene, or any part of the film, to be totally justified in their experience, and also to evolve.

‘The last scene, when Connie goes to Scotland and she knows he’s behind her before he’s there, we filmed that quite near the beginning, and I’d forgotten. When I was watching it for the first time, it really got me.’

Emma also spoke about the importance of touch in the movie.

They said: ‘I think [touch] was a huge part of it that in COVID everyone felt that lack of intimacy not being able to hug family, or be near people you care about.

‘Connie is so starved of any intimacy, physical intimacy. I wonder if studies have been done now about how people haven’t realized how much we need that. 

‘We need comfort, touch, and intimacy as part of our mental wellbeing and stability.’

Emma continued that intimacy is a common theme in her most recent work.

They said: ‘There can be so much in a simple touch. In Chatterley, Policeman, The Crown, if you’re going to find a common denominator there, it’s that these women long to be freed within themselves, and recognized, and validated in their sexuality.

‘It’s amazing if you think about how they’re all set at very different periods of time, and yet that is something that is sort of timeless, the need to be wanted, to be desired. 

‘They explore it in very different ways. Connie manages to find that freedom. It grounds her and brings her back to life.’
