Raeden Greer claims she was fired from the HBO show after refusing to go topless

Actress Raeden Greer claims she was fired from the hit HBO show True Detective after refusing to go topless for a strip club scene following pressure from director Cary Joji Fukunaga. 

In an interview with The Daily Beast, Greer claimed going topless was not in her contract, and was reassured on multiple occasions that she would not have to go nude for the role as a stripper. 

But when Greer refused to take off her clothes, the speaking role ended up going to an extra who was fine being nude but who had no prior acting experience.

‘Cary said to me at that moment, “Everybody on this show goes topless. All the women on the show go topless. Your character is a stripper, so you have to,”‘ Greer recalled Raeden telling her.
