NEW YORK (AP) _ Acting in a three-way sex scene requires concentration and skill _ and a glass of wine doesn't hurt, either.

That's the advice of 24-year-old actress Neve Campbell, who has such a scene in the new thriller ``Wild Things.''

A high school student who seems to be setting up her sexy guidance counselor in the film, Campbell says breaking from her wholesome television persona on ``Party of Five'' was one of the reasons she took the part.

``Because it's so extremely opposite to anything I've done before. And it's the opposite of me in a lot of ways,'' she says in the Feb. 20 issue of Entertainment Weekly. ``It's fun, because you get to learn a lot about yourself. You have to find things within yourself that connect to the character.''
