Footage of Jesse Williams appearing nude during a scene for the Broadway play Take Me Out has leaked online.
The Grey’s Anatomy actor stars as Darren Lemming in the revival of the show, which follows a gay baseball player coming out to his teammates and the press. Williams has landed a Tony Award nomination for his performance.
Despite audience members being required to keep devices in sealed cases throughout the duration of the play staged at the Hayes Theater, a video of a completely nude Williams began circulating on the Internet on Monday.
Neither the actor nor the show organisers have made a statement on the footage.
However, the leaked video has caused the Williams to trend on Twitter and also sparked an interest in ticket sales.
“I haven't been to a Broadway show in years. I guess now is a good time to start back up,” one fan commented, while another wrote, “Currently securing tix to see Jesse Williams on Broadway. Yes I live in LA, so what?!”
Last month, Williams admitted he was initially “terrified” of Take Me Out’s nude scenes.
“I asked to be terrified. I asked to do something that was scary and challenging and made me earn it and made me feel alive and not comfortable,” he commented to Page Six.
The 40-year-old is also currently promoting his upcoming film Secret Headquarters.
