How much of the strip scene was pre-planned and how much of it was improvised?
Quarterman: I was naked the whole day, and it took hours to shoot. But I mean, after you did it once, that was it. It was like, Well, the cat's out of the bag, so to speak. As with a lot of the work on the show, it has a lot to do with exploring in the moment -- that's what I really love about it. It's like a joint exploration, not only with the director, but with us too, and finding the best way to navigate a scene. This one found its footing quite quickly, though one of the lines -- "all of it" -- wasn't written. Initially, it was just "Strip!" I can't remember who suggested it. It might have been me. I'm not too sure. But we realized we needed another prompt because otherwise Lee, of course, would have just been like, Alright, I'm just gonna put the trousers on over my boxer shorts. So it was important to say, "No, all of it. Take it all off." Maeve wanted to create that whole "This is what you've done to us all this time, and this is gonna happen to you now because the tables have turned." Interestingly, in terms of the difference between Dolores and Maeve this season, that's Maeve's much softer way of dealing with retribution, I suppose. Her revenge is gentle enough just to say, "Take your clothes off." She's not gonna murder him or kill him, like Dolores would. There's a real difference between those two characters there.
