This is the controversial scene from “House of the Dragon” that took months to record – Diffusion (HBO Max)

Since its premiere in 2022, the “Game of Thrones” prequel has become a streaming success as anticipated by critics and the expectations of the public and the producer himself. It was almost certain that “House of the Dragon” would not only be appreciated by the public, but would take the viewing levels during its premiere to another level and so it happened, but the company already had a goal to achieve and not. it did disappoint the fans.

Of all the expectations the new HBO series had to meet and please with audiences, it was the treatment that would be reserved for scenes that talk about sex, and is that, in the original series, some of them have upset and aroused the anger of some groups that have branded it as misogynist, violent and sexist. Now the way was to make up for it, with scenes treated with dignity and acceptable to the audience.

The producers of ‘The House of the Dragon’ had already indicated that they would approach the sex scenes in a completely different way, nothing compared to what they did in GOT, promising that the prequel series would not include “free” sexual violence against the women, despite having occurred 200 years before the original, which in the past has earned them a lot of criticism and which we appreciate, have taken into account.

The production thus took care of incorporating in the working group a special team of intimacy coordinators who had the task of not repeating the unpleasant experiences, more precisely what happened with Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), who during the filming of the first film seasons of “Game of Thrones”, his character was hacked by Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa).

This series of changes and cures is what led to the production taking a few months to record the princess’s controversial and intimate scene. Rhaenyra Targaryen (Milly Alcock) in which she has relations with her protector Ser Criston Cole (Fabien Frankel), both actors had to discuss and agree exactly how she would look in front of the cameras to avoid the displeasure and offense of the followers, above all, not to encourage the violence against women and much less normalize this type of acts.

It took seven months to superimpose the scene of Rhaenyra Targaryen and Ser Criston Cole

The actor Fabien Frankelwhich in fiction reads Ser Criston Colerevealed for the podcast West of West (Entertainment Weekly) that this scene was the one that took the longest to be recorded and / or materialized in ‘House of the Dragon’. For seven months they talked about what the episode directed by Clare Kilner would represent, and it is that, he assures, the goal was different from the rest of all the scenes.

“It was something we talked about for seven months. It was one of the first things I really wanted to talk about. We were incredibly lucky that the episode was directed by Chiara Kilnerwho I think is one of the best directors on television today, “Febien explains.

The episode where both characters share intimacy, was to show two people whose sexual experience was almost zero, so they dedicated themselves to finding the keys so that it would appear on screen, albeit for some with experience didn’t seem nice or aesthetic to present.

“Anyone who has had sex will tell you it’s not that cute. It’s not aesthetic and surprising. It’s uncomfortable, especially when you’re young. There’s an awkwardness you have to get used to and there’s a process of discovering and understanding your body. on the other hand, not to mention the practical side of the whole thing, “adds the actor.

“House of the Dragon” premiered in August 2022 in the streaming service’s catalog hbo maxpresented as the prequel to the legendary and successful “Game of Thrones” and this time features the past of House Targaryen, premieres one episode a week every Sunday.
