Thanks for your answer last night. You asked questions back of me and I wanted to answer them in case it helped you with your advice:
If it goes against your values then you have a choice to make. Is the benefit to your career worth taking a hit to your values?
It doesn't go against my values. It fits the part and isn't exploitive and is a serious movie. The three things that make it, for me, not immoral.
Some things to consider:
Once done, it will always be around to follow you whatever you do in acting or other careers. Are you comfortable with that?
No. lol. That scares the crud out of me. Wouldnt it you? Doesnt mean I can't face that, but it scares me.
Are you comfortable knowing that your family, friends and future co-workers may see it?
Comfortable is a big word lol. I wouldn't be ASHAMED (see what I said above about morals) but "comfortable"? Heck no. lol
Will you be able to hold your head high and proudly point to your name in the credits as it flashes by for less than a second?
Yes. Without a doubt.
Can you further your career without doing it?
Maybe. Hard to say. Certainly no current offer as big as this one.
Do many other beginning actresses do nudity roles that are not porn videos? Did it help or hurt their career?
Others have. Some have gone on to do great things, others not. It seems most only get hurt by the nudity directly if they do too many parts where the nudity is frivolous/exploitive
The body check probably means you will be removing your clothes so they can check how photogenic your body is and how comfortable/uncomfortable you are in doing so.
Yikes. That is scary. Will there be many people there?
