Natalie Faye may be one of Singapore's first actresses to bare all in a Singaporean film. The 20-minute film, titled Hush, features a brief full frontal shot of Faye, among other steamy scenes.
Hush is being hyped as "Singapore's most erotic film" and tells the story of a family with dark secrets. It has been passed by the Board of Film Censors with no cuts.
In an interview with RazorTV, Faye says that she has no qualms about taking her clothes off for the camera if the plot calls for it.
Executive producer Kelvin Sng says that no other local film has ever shown full-frontal nudity involving a woman, even though male frontal nudity has been featured in Royston Tan's 15, Ekachai Uekrongtham's Pleasure Factory, Kan Lume's Solos and other films.
After its gala premiere at the Cathay, the film will be screened for the public in Sinema at Old School in August.
