Rachel Weisz opened up about the graphic birth scenes in the first episode of dead wrestlers.
In the Prime Video series, based on the 1988 David Cronenberg film of the same name, Weisz plays two obstetricians.
Episode one features a scene that shocked many viewers with its graphic depiction of childbirth.
Asked about the “visceral” moment at BBCs hour of the woman Weicz explained on the radio broadcast: “[Writer Alice Birch] and I was really interested in showing the birth in the first episode. I think we felt like it’s something we don’t see often.
She continued: “We’re incredibly used to seeing violence and people being killed, death, blood all around it. We are currently almost immune to this. For me it’s a beautiful moment. It’s something we really want to show.
“We didn’t want to be shy. We were really interested in seeing it. The show is quite grounded and graphic at first and develops from there. I hope you believe in these doctors’ dreams.”
Earlier this week, Weisz also opened up about her own relationship with the celebrity and the ease of living a life away from the public eye.
Weisz lives in Brooklyn, New York with her husband Daniel Craig and their children.
“Celebrity — it really doesn’t mean anything to me,” she said The guard.
“And it’s no work at all to keep not showing up at events. It’s not work at all to have a personal life. Life can be tough, family life can be complicated, but I don’t even know what “celebrity” means. I don’t think of myself that way.”
dead wrestlers is now available to stream on Prime Video.
