Seems the poor girl is in absolute terror of our own dear Carver, but wants to point out that she has a nudity clause.
Evidently the love scene is written somewhat ambiguously and
she wants to know how far he intends to take it. Can you ask him?

||Can we get a stand-by on the set for
contingency purposes? That way if we want to display a little more,

||Just curious, but how do they actually list these engagements?
||Well with famous doubles they'll come right out with it. ‘Winona legs’-- that sort of thing. If it's for
