Paul Mescal has spoken of his insecurities as an actor while filming intimate scenes, saying he sometimes feels as if he's in a 'blind panic' on set.

The actor, 28, had to do raunchy sex scenes with Fleabag's Andrew Scott for his role as Harry in All of Us Strangers.

The film follows Andrew Scott's lonely screenwriter Adam as he encounters the spirits of his dead parents in director Andrew Haigh's latest film. 

While Paul has a wealth of experience as an actor and while All of Us Strangers was nominated for an impressive six awards at the BAFTAs last Sunday, he admits he can still feel very vulnerable while performing.

Irish star Paul is seen playing out some very intimate moments as Harry with Andrew's Adam in the film. 

Paul told All of Us Strangers writer and director Andrew Haigh during an interview for AnOther Magazine: 'I feel like sometimes, though, it’s blind panic. Because I think acting has the capacity to be the most embarrassing thing that any of us ever do.

'And it can be in an instant. I’ve seen actors that I really admire do bad, embarrassing things. 

'When you’re in a scene where that’s heightened – say, if your body is on show or there’s an emotional weight to a scene – weirdly, if you’re working with good actors, you can just throw a bubble around yourselves and white-knuckle it. 

'Andrew Scott is just outrageously good.'

Paul went on to praise his co-star Andrew, saying their closeness in real-life allowed for an intimacy and trust on screen that he's only had a couple of times with other people, being Normal People's Daisy Edgar-Jones and Saoirse Ronan in Foe.

The screen star said their acting abilities go beyond talent, adding that they have a 'well of emotionality where all you have to do when you’re in scenes with them is sit there and listen'. 

Paul posed for an arty photoshoot for the magazine, posing in sporting attire for a variety of photographs.

It comes after Andrew admitted he barely rehearsed his raunchy sex scenes with Paul while working with an intimacy coordinator ahead of his latest role in All Of Us Strangers. 

The film is an adaptation of Japanese author Taichi Yamada's 1987 novel, Strangers. 

While an explicit sexual encounter with Harry, played by Irish heartthrob Paul has dominated the commentary surrounding its release, Scott insists they both adopted an organic approach towards its development.
