"Masters Of Sex"- Enter Lizzy Caplan

Take another look @ footage from Showtime's "Masters Of Sex", plus new images of actress Lizzy Caplan aka sexologist 'Virginia Masters' in the July/August 2015 issue of "Playboy Magazine":

"I think I drank 'Grey Goose', kept in the freezer from the night before and mixed into a bottle of 'Vitaminwater'," said Caplan about her first nude scene in the TV series "True Blood".

" was a surprisingly delicious cocktail. I drank the entire bottle and had to get my stomach pumped. I was encouraged to get loose. For that 'True Blood' scene I had to walk across a room wearing only tiny panties and climb on a guy, and that was it.'

"Unfortunately that's not an option on 'Masters', even for the more intimidating nude scenes, because they're always in the middle of the day, with nine pages of intense dialogue.

"Because I was mainly known for doing comedy, not drama, I just couldn't shake the idea that the people who had hired me would quickly get wise to the fact that I was the wrong person for the job, that I was in over my head. Luckily, that's what the real 'Virginia Johnson' felt when she showed up for her first day with 'Dr. Masters', so it worked for me.

"There's nothing on our show around the feminist issues that I don't feel has a huge echo today. If anything, it makes me angry about today. I've never said this out loud before, but I don't know if we'll get there in my lifetime. Until we can convince our own side - women - that this is a good thing for all of us, I don't see how we stand a chance convincing all the men.'

"But a guy who wants a chance with me has to have a sick and dark sense of humour. 'I've had a handful of serious relationships. I take that shit very seriously. Before breaking up I will try everything to make it work, because if I love somebody, it means a great deal.

"But when it's over, there's a DO NOT RESUSITATE sign hung around the relationship's head..."
