Father Ted and Shameless star Pauline McLynn
has told of her difficulty in writing sex scenes.
The Sligo star (49) knew that she had to include sex in her books
to appeal to a readership but it was something she found awkward.
“It used to kill me to write them,” she told Anton Savage
on Today FM’s Ray D’Arcy show.
“It’s hard enough to do it in real life, without then writing it down and then reading it out loud for people,” she said about also having to voice the audio books of her novels.
McLynn starred as Mrs Doyle in Father Ted, but blew away the frumpy image with a series of sex scenes in C4’s Shameless.
