Josephine Langford talks working with an intimacy coordinator on After We Fell: ‘It was different and necessary’

Josephine Langford and Hero Fiennes Tiffin have returned for the third instalment of their movie franchise After We Fell.

This time around, the movie included an intimacy coordinator to help Langford (Tessa) and Tiffin (Hardin) through the steamy scenes the series is renowned for.

“It was different and necessary. Sex scenes are like fight scenes and there should be choreography,” Langford exclusively tells 9Honey Celebrity.

“We were lucky on the third and fourth one, we got to work with someone and block it out beforehand. She thinks of stuff you don’t necessarily think about. It makes sure you’re comfortable and that everyone is comfortable, and that everything runs smoothly.”

Castille London, 29, who signed on to direct the third and fourth films, was thrilled to have someone step into that role. The idea of intimacy coordinators was popularised in response to the #Metoo movement in 2017 and has become a fixture on film and TV sets.

“I think it’s really important especially with young actors,” London says.

“I think it’s also easier with a female director involved. But I also think for me and the actors, it made things easier and more comfortable. You have to plan those scenes the same way you plan a stunt scene. You plan it with the same care to their emotions.

“A lot of the time people go in and say ‘make out’, but you have to say exactly what you want. It’s very technical. It’s awkward at first but it becomes a bit of a puzzle.”

In After We Fell, Tessa and Hardin navigate life after college following a brief separation in the previous film, After We Collided. When Tessa is offered her dream job in Seattle, Hardin’s jealousy heightens and tests the strength of their bond.

“We continue to explore their relationship, their lives and whether they can make it work. I think cause they’re older, the obstacles are higher stakes,” Fiennes says.

“The tone of the film is similar, a bit more of the same but turned up.”

The movie franchise is an adaptation of the popular five-book young adult fiction (YA) series After by Anna Todd. Interestingly, it’s the product of Harry Styles fan fiction and has generated buzz worldwide among its younger audience.

“There’s something magnetic about these characters. There’s a bit of an X factor, that we don’t have the formula or recipe as to what makes it captivating,” Langford says.

“There’s something in the words and characters, that it had such a huge audience before the films. It’s been an honour to bring that to life. The X factor is something we’re unaware of, that’s hidden deep within the development of the story life. And in the books.”

Fiennes credits the books for capturing the “magic” that translates seamlessly on screen. “There’s something to be said of a coming-of-age love story that is timeless. Once you have that rough blueprint, Anna Todd found a way to bring the best out of that,” he says. “She ticked all the boxes that others failed to do. I think that’s where the magic is.”

Fiennes and Langford, who have now spent three years of their acting careers playing love interests, learned “trust and communication” are integral to the survival of any romantic partnership.

Fiennes says, “We know Hardin’s intentions are so pure towards Tessa, it’s sad that the lack of communication and trust.”

“I probably have learned something but I haven’t worked out what it is. It will probably hit me in the head late at night one day. Doing this story has hit it home that trust and communication is important,” Langford adds.

After We Fell is in cinemas on September 10…
