In just a few weeks (August 21, to be exact), HBO’s highly anticipated Game of Thrones precursor, House of the Dragon, finally arrives.
If you’re a Got superfan, you may already know that Matt Smith will play Prince Daemon Targaryen in the new series.
You probably also know that the original Game of Thrones series featured quite a few sex scenes throughout its run – and it sounds like House of the Dragon will follow.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone UK, Matt revealed that the number of sex scenes in House of the Dragon perhaps a little unnecessary, in his estimation.
“You find yourself asking yourself, ‘Do we need? another sex scene?’” he said as he talked about making the show. “And they say, ‘Yes, we do.'”
“I think you should ask yourself, ‘What are you doing? Are you representing the books, or are you diluting the books to represent the time? [we’re living in]?'”
“I actually think it’s your job to present the books truthfully and honestly, as they are written,” he added, before laughingly saying his amount of sex scenes was “a little too much, if you put it to me.” asks.”
Obviously Matt laughed a little at the whole thing – but we’ll see how much he actually jokes soon enough. In the meantime, watch the House of the Dragon the trailer below:
