Anti-Family Role In Black Sails!
Unfortunately, in most of the television series, we’re used to being more disappointed than not to be when it comes to the depiction of lesbian characters in the show and how their sexuality is defined.
Starz’s new pirate drama Black Sails also doesn’t define the sexual orientation of the characters Max (Jessica Parker Kennedy) and Eleanor (Hannah New) even though they have a steamy sex scene in the first episode of Black Sails.

Hannah’s character as Eleanor is that she is the daughter of the local smuggling kingpin who is looking to make a name for herself, and Eleanor’s family conceive a plan to hunt the ultimate treasure as well as save their home.
In an interview with AfterEllen during Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, Hannah New spoke about her lesbian role on January 17, 2014.
I think it’s really interesting when you look into the history of sexuality and you look at how lesbianism became defined and how it became legislated. I suddenly realized that, “Wow, I’ve got this opportunity to play this woman who is growing and developing without those constraints, without that obligation to be part of anything, to be part of a group.” She is completely on the margins of all of that.
Moreover, she added:
Some people might feel that by not defining her, it kind of draws away from her identifying with a particular group but I actually think that it’s a stronger move to be a fluid woman whose sexuality is completely her own and she’s in control of it and she doesn’t have to answer to anyone. It’s incredibly empowering. I can’t express how excited I am about it.
Hannah also spoke about her imitate scenes with Jessica Parker and said;
I find it really interesting. It’s always awkward, obviously, that there’s a crew in the room. But I actually think the way we choreograph scenes and it is choreography basically, is almost like crafting a scripted scene.It has to be meaningful and I think that first scene with Max was actually really incredible as we talked about it. Talking about it, you learn so much about a character. Why is it that she at this time of real pain seeks a moment of pleasure? I think that’s very interesting and it ties into so many psychological arguments about why people use their sexuality to act out or to become, to release themselves from a situation. I just hope that, that scene reads that way.
On July 20 of 2016, Starz announced that the upcoming fourth season would be last of the lot in the series which is scheduled to premiere on January 29, 2017.
