The White Lotus actor Murray Bartlett addressed episode 4’s finale. In it, Armond is seen ‘rimming’ one of his employees after Shane comes in on them.
Bartlett recently sat down with our colleagues at Digital Spyto reflect on filming this scene.
“I think that there’s ways to show intimacy, that you don’t need to be explicit, and it can be even more intimate and amazing when you don’t see stuff,” he began to explain.
In this scene, we wanted it to be shocking and, as you know, it was shocking.
