House of the Dragon star Matt Smith thinks there are a lot of sex scenes in the series.
In an interview with Rolling Stone (through THR) tells Smith that his character is part of “a little too many sex scenes. At one point I wondered, ‘Is there really yet need a sex scenes?’ The makers would then say ‘yes, there is’. You have to ask yourself what you are going to do next. Do you want to do the books justice or are the books too far away from today’s society? I think our job is to do justice to the books and to do it the way they are written.”
Game of Thrones has been criticized for the amount of nudity in the series. Actress Gemma Whelan played Yara Greyjoy and said the sex scenes “a big messEmilia Clarke said that after Game of Thrones no more nude scenes.
House of the Dragon is based on George RR Martin’s Fire & Blood. The story originally came out in 2018. Smith stars in the series as Prince Daemon Targaryen, one of the main protagonists in the conflict now known as Dance of the Dragons. The story takes place several hundred years before Game of Thrones.
In addition to a large amount of sex scenes, House of the Dragons naturally contains dragons. There will be nine different dragons in the first season of the series. Co-showrunner Miguel Sapochnik says each bear has “it’s own personality.”
House of the Dragon will air on HBO Max on August 21, with a new episode airing every week.
