HBO’s #Incest Obsession Tarnishes Your Brand

Game Of Thrones Nudity

MAY 2020 GIANTFREAKINROBOT.COM

During its run on HBO the original Game of Thrones series became infamous for the amount of nudity the show was willing to air, both male and female. Don’t expect that to continue on House of the Dragon. The world has changed and things like the #MeToo movement have made it more politically correct for people to be ashamed of their bodies.

Many of the actresses who revealed themselves on the show (like Emilia Clarke) now regret it. For instance, most recently Carice Van Houten (who played Melisandre on Game of Thrones) came out and admitted she now has second thoughts about agreeing to being naked on the series.

Carice tells Insider, “When the #MeToo movement started, that’s when it started sinking in for me… And it did sort of change my perspective on my whole career, not just Game of Thrones. In retrospect, I thought, ‘Why did that scene have to be nude? Why was that normal?’ I did question things and it was not so much that I was blaming anyone, but that’s just how we evolved, and just how the movement affected me.”

Attitudes like that are sure to guarantee that even if the production has a valid artistic reason for a nude scene on House of the Dragon, future actresses are likely to refuse to do it.

THE INTERCEPT

“But there was always something unsettling about the show: its unremitting thirst for cruelty. Incest, decapitation, tongues torn out, pregnant women stabbed in the stomach, castration, people having their skin peeled off, rape, crucifixion, children thrown from windows, children jumping from windows, children being burned at the stake, people eaten alive by dogs, more incest. Then it culminated in actual genocide. Its enormous conglomeration of talent was harnessed to exquisitely depict ever more baroque barbarism.”

“…and the Targaryen family’s love of incestuous marriages (which didn’t help much with the hereditary madness), so there’s a lot of potential here.

The series was co-created by Miguel Sapochnik and Ryan Condal, who will both serve as showrunners.”
