Popular comedian Sarah Silverman will make her debut on Masters of Sex this season. Silverman is set to play Annaleigh Ashford’s on screen lover Helen.

Ashford, who starred on Broadway in Kinky Boots , described Silverman as a beautiful actress and human being and said they had such a ball together on set.

Ashford’s character Betty was revealed to be a lesbian in season one of the popular Showtime series, but went on to be in a relationship with a man.

The actress said the new season is promising to be titillating, as Betty keeps a number of secrets from her husband.  One of which is her relationship with Helen.

And Masters of Sex being what it is, there’s little doubt Betty and Helen will wind up in bed together.

Ashford told After Ellen: “Sarah Silverman and I do have a love scene and she was luxurious as a scene partner in that way as well. We laughed a lot and giggled,” Ashford said. “We sang the entire ‘If Mama Was Married’ from Gypsy and the whole crew was laughing so hard.So we had a great time and oh, she was just such a dream to work with.

"She’s one of the most gifted comediennes of our generation and oftentimes we forget that great comedians are great because they’re honest and that makes them honest, interesting actors and she brought all of that comedy and humanity to the role that she played and I couldn’t be more grateful to have a fabulous scene partner. She’s beautiful as an actress and then she was incredible as a human. We had such a ball on set.”
