However she kept the identity of the director under wraps while committing this toW Magazine.She recalled, “A director, on a callback, had a camera shooting up my skirt and asked me to touch my t–s and think about the guy making love to me in the scene. I thought, ‘Ok, this is a little weird,’ but there was a female casting director in the room and I’d done weird stuff before so I did it,”.

And how she came to know that director used her video as fun amongst his friends. It all happened when at a film festival, a producer came to her and said , “’Oh, Thandie, I’ve seen you recently!’ And went away realising that he said something wrong. “It turns out that the director was showing that audition tape to his friends after poker games at his house.
