‘We were told to go for it’, nothing was choreographed’ – Game of Thrones’ star Gemma Whelan speaks on movie s3x scenes

HBO hit TV series, “Game of Thrones” actress, Gemma Whelan has explained how sex scenes were played in the movie.

According to Wheland filming sex scenes was a “frenzied mess.”

Whelan joined the series in the show’s second season, playing the fierce warrior Yara Greyjoy. The actor continued to have a key role until the end of the series in 2019.

Speaking with The Guardian about her new show “The Tower,” Whelan mentioned the sex scenes in “Game of Thrones,” saying they were not really choreographed.

“They used to just say, ‘When we shout action, go for it!’ and it could be a sort of frenzied mess,” Whelan said. “But between the actors, there was always an instinct to check in with each other.”

She continued: “There was a scene in a brothel with a woman and she was so exposed that we talked together about where the camera would be and what she was happy with. A director might say, ‘Bit of boob biting, then slap her bum and go!’ But I’d always talk it through with the other actor.”

One of Whelan’s significant sex scenes in “Game of Thrones” was in season two, episode two, when her character was seduced by her own brother, Theon Lovejoy (Alfie Allen), who did not recognize his sister.

Whelan previously said on “The Graham Norton Show” that she auditioned for the show using that scene but originally Yara was seducing her brother.
