Matt Smith Wants To Rephrase His
House Of The
Dragon Sex Scene
Violence, sex, and avarice are frequently positioned at the forefront and heart of the "Game of Thrones" franchise, as well as its future spin-off series "House of the Dragon." Matt Smith recently provided an honest opinion of the show's sex scenes, but ‌he has already walked these remarks back and is now providing a somewhat different perspective.
Given Smith's past remarks, it would appear like "House of the Dragon" will not shy away from nudity and sexual situations. According to Screen Rant, the subject of Smith's sex scenes came up again at a roundtable interview with several publications, and he said "No one likes doing sex scenes. They feel quite exposing, do you know what I mean?"
Smith complimented those involved in the production of those scenes, especially his co-star Sonoya Mizuno, saying, "We had an intimacy coordinator, and that all felt quite good and safe." Smith believes those scenes are necessary because "That’s the world that we’re representing [...] And we’re trying to represent the books as truthfully as possible."
