House of Dragons: Emily Carey was “terrified” of sex scenes due to “violence” in Game of Thrones

Emily Carey has admitted she was “scared” about filming house of the dragon sex scenes because they appeared to be “violent” in the series’ predecessor, game of Thrones.

The now 19-year-old British actress – who plays young Alicent Hightower on the HBO drama – was 17 when she first read the script and 18 when they began filming.

“I’ve never seen game of Thrones before, and so I sat down in pre-production to try it out and watch [it] and of course the first season, even just the first episode of thrones, There’s a lot of violence against women,” Carey said news week in a recent interview.

“There is a lot of violent sex and it made me nervous. I was like, ‘Oh god, what do I have to do on this show?’”

Fan favorite Fantasy is known for its violent scenes. Carey’s co-star Milly Alcock also revealed this in a separate interview game of Thrones“Sexual violence” made her “uncomfortable”.

However, Carey went on to credit the “amazing” intimacy coordinator for making her feel safe.

“Again, I’m still 17, the first scene I read from the show was my sex scene and my intimacy scenes, which includes the scene where I bathe the king.” The role will be played by British actor Paddy Considine played.

“But it scared me because at that point I hadn’t met Paddy, I didn’t know how much fun he would be and how easy he would make it for me [the scene]and all I saw was, you know, a 47-year-old man and I, I was a little bit concerned,” Carey continued.

She added, “And having that intimacy coordinator outlet to be able to talk through everything and not be shunned or uncomfortable or like, ‘Oh, that’s not your job. I don’t want to make you uncomfortable, but may I ask…’ it was never any of that, it was just this open dialogue.”

house of the dragon airs weekly on Sundays in the US, with the UK premiere arriving on Sky the next morning at 2am. The episode will then be repeated on Mondays at 9 p.m. and can then be streamed on Sky and NOW.
