According to Max Riemelt, the sex scenes in “Sense8” are less original and more like oil paintings. The German actor is reprising his role as Wolfgang from the previous season of “Sense8.” Speaking of the cast of the show, Max said that Aml Ameen, Doona Bae, Jamie Clayton, Tina Desai, Tuppence Middleton, Max Reimelt, Miguel Angel, and Brian Smith play Toby, Sun Bak, Nomi, Kala Dandekar, Riley, Wolfgang, Lito, and Will Gorski, respectively. However, the actor is not sure about the nature of their characters, saying that he’s more focused on his role and has nothing to do with performances of other stars.
