Olivia Lytton’s deleted scene in anatomy of a scandal

In television fiction, James Whitehouse (Rupert Friend) denies the accusations of violation of Olivia Lyton (Naomi Scott) and maintains that the sexual act was consensual. Also, his main defense was that they both had an extramarital affair for five months. She denies having given her consent and, even though they had an affair, she claims that she was forced to have intimate relations with him. More is unknown about her private life other than what is seen in flashbacks of her during her depositions in court.

“What I love about this series is that it puts the audience in the jury’s seat. I think that’s really effective because ultimately, if you’re a juror, you’re dealing with these memory fragments, which I think makes these cases really difficult to prosecute,” Scott said in an interview with RadioTimes. Along the same lines, he revealed that there was a scene of anatomy of a scandal which tells more about Olivia’s life after that event, but failed to survive the director’s cut.

The scene that told the most about Olivia's fate was cut by the production. "It didn't seem like he did the character justice.", justified the actress. (Netflix)

What was the reason for leaving her out? “She did not feel well [dejarla]”, he replied. “It didn’t seem like it did the character justice, tying him up with a bow. In fact, I think it’s more powerful to let people say, ‘Wow, what happened to him?’. And a lot of times these kinds of victims are forgotten, so I think it’s really appropriate.”

Created and written by David E Kelley (Big Little Lies) Y Melissa James Gibson (House of Cards), this television adaptation is starring Sienna Miller, Michelle Dockery, Rupert Friends, Naomi Scott, Josette Simon, Geoffrey Streatfeild Y Joshua McGuire.
