‘The White Lotus’ sex scene shock: Are Tom Hollander and Leo Woodall uncle and nephew? The stars weigh

The White Lotus Season 2 Episode 5 “It’s Amore” ends with enough the shocking twist. After taking her new boyfriend Quentin (Tom Hollander) on his invitation to Palermo, Tanya (Jennifer Coolidge) thinks she’s finally found a friend she can trust. However, that trust is shattered when Tanya, unable to sleep, wanders into the lavish villa and discovers that Quentin’s nephew, Jack (Leo Woodall), is having sex with…Quentin??

Quentin is sleeping with his nephew??? Does Jack not Quentin’s nephew? What the hell is going on in HBO The White Lotus Season 2?

“Well, there’s a whole bunch of stuff about what’s real and what’s not, at this point in the story,” white lotus star Tom Hollander told Decider. “And in keeping with that, I’m not even sure I can remember if we’re nephew and uncle.”

“Are we really? We are not, are we? he asked his co-star Leo Woodall, who was also on the call.

“I think not. I don’t know,” Woodall said. “I think you’re supposed to ask yourself all the questions at the end.”

“I’m not sure you ever really get an answer to that,” Hollander said. “Although a clue might be in the fact that they have completely different voices. So you could say, if you were a pedant on the nuances of British accents, you’d say, ‘Hmmm, he doesn’t look anything like him. His nephew looks like he’s from Essex and the uncle looks like he’s from, you know, Boris Johnson’s house. But that doesn’t mean they couldn’t be. They could still be. You know, there are a lot of classy people who claim they’re not classy.

We first met Quentin and Jack in The White Lotus Season 2 Episode 3 “Bull Elephants”. Quentin had spotted Tanya at dinner while Jack caught the eye of Tanya’s romantic assistant, Portia (Haley Lu Richardson) by the pool. In Episode 4 “In the Sandbox,” Tanya found herself reveling in the fun Quentin and his group of European gay men were having. Likewise, Portia was caught up in lust with Jack. It’s a relationship that Woodall described as “really fun.”

“I think he thinks she’s very sweet and obviously there’s a lot of attraction there and they’re just having a good time,” Woodall said. “I think he accomplishes for her exactly what she wanted at the start of the series.”

Meanwhile, it looks like Jack is doing a very similar job for his “uncle” Quentin. A bit like in season 1 of The White Lotus, where creator/writer/director Mike White lets the audience (and a White Lotus guest) catch a character in a super intimate moment, Quentin and Jack’s sex scene leaves little to the imagination. Woodall sang the praises of intimacy coordinator Miriam Lucia for helping create a safe environment for the scene.

“It was a closed set. Tom and I had already hit it off by then and it was a laugh, you know? It was completely ridiculous, but it was really, you know, well handled. So yeah, it was fun,” Woodall said.

“It’s quite intimate to do an intimate scene,” Hollander said. “You have the experience in a way, without actually performing the act itself. Literally, you virtually are, and you kind of feel like – you kind of feel like you just had sex with someone and it’s in the most pleasurable way possible. By that I mean it was an experience that brought us together. Leo, am I saying something disastrous? »

“No, not at all,” Woodall said. “I felt very close to you after that, Tom.”

“Yeah, so that was good,” Hollander said. “And everyone was awfully nice about it and sweet and respectful and -“

“The favorite part was when you were working out at the very beginning what positions you should be in,” Woodall said without elaborating too much from there.

So what does this revelation mean for Tanya? Will she leave Palermo? Is she in physical or financial danger with Quentin? And will Tanya tell Portia that her new boy toy is schtupping her “uncle?” How will this all work out in the final two episodes of The White Lotus Season 2? Or is nothing working?

“I guess that’s the whole show’s problem, The White Lotus. This is what we observe. We look at the misery of people who have everything, but it doesn’t work,” Hollander said.
