The scene in which we saw Maeve Dermody naked in Carnival Row is a bit of a stealth nude scene. We discussed the irony of this briefly in the previous post for the series, the one for Karla Crome, but to reiterate now that we’re on the scene itself, the part where we see Maeve Dermody nude in Carnival Row is literally the very first nude scene in the entire series. A blessed position to hold, but that didn’t stop it from getting overshadowed by the pair of nude scenes we got from Cara Delevingne later in the season.
That said, connoisseurs of celebrity nudity aren’t known for missing a trick, so in anticipation of Season 2 of Carnival Row, which is due to release on February 17, 2023 – only about a fortnight from now, as I write – I’m sweeping up with the nude scenes that I didn’t address when I covered Cara as Vignette Stonemoss back in November. We did Karla’s nude scene a few days ago, and we’ve got the Tamzin Merchant nude scenes to close the series off. Then when the second and final season rolls out, we can start afresh and hopefully with continuing nude scenes from the cast.
As for the first season, we get treated to the Maeve Dermody nude scene about half an hour into the pilot episode. The Australian actress plays Portia Fyfe, the landlady to Orlando Bloom’s Minecraft Ryprostate. As in every landlady-tenant relationship, they are also having sex on the side. Maybe this is why Philo’s rent was attainable, though how he still couldn’t afford better digs on a military officer’s pension and a police inspector’s salary, I’m not entirely sure. Maybe he was paying Maeve for the pleasure. Who knows? I would. The good news in all of that is we get to enjoy seeing Maeve Dermody nude in a great, albeit perhaps too clothed, sex scene, the gallery of which is below.
