The body that represents UK TV and film directors is aiming to show best practice for working with actors, intimacy coordinators, and others. The news comes a day after Emilia Clarke said she found Game of Thrones' nude scenes "hard" and that she was pressured to go naked in other roles. The guidelines advise a ban on full nudity in any audition or call back and no semi-nudity in first auditions. The document states that "by their nature, auditions are based on a power imbalance", and that "some performers can feel obligated to agree to uncomfortable requests to get a job". Instead they suggest performers wear a bikini or trunks and also bring a chaperone, as well as demanding 48 hours' notice and full-scripts be given for any recalls that require semi-nudity.

It was so badly handled from casting to actual filming.
