In the fourth episode “king of the narrow sea“, The knight who serves in the Princess’ Royal Guard and heir to the Iron Throne Rhaenyra Targaryen he is convinced by the latter to break his vow of chastity and “take his virtue”. The whole scene aims to show the character of Rhaenyra, minutes before left blank by Uncle Daemon.
What, on screen, could have been perceived as a sex scene like any other, nevertheless required colossal preparation on the part of Fabien Frankel, as he himself revealed to Weekly entertainment. “We talked about it for seven months – he said – It was one of the first things I was interested in discussing. The important thing for me was don’t make it look like another free sex sceneof those who have the sweat on their backs, because it’s not like that at all“.
The actor then revealed his opinion on sexual relationships, especially among young people: “Anyone who’s had sex will tell you it’s not that good. It’s not that quaint, fantastical thing. It’s embarrassing, especially when you’re young. There is a certain discomfort in living, a discovery and understanding of the body of the other, not to mention the practical side.“.
More precisely, in fact, to make everything as human as possible his Sir Criston Cole and the character played by Milly Alcock they had to fix the issue of the knight’s armor. “I remember telling them [alla Alcock e alla regista di puntata director Clare Kilner, ndr]: “There’s no way this armor will come off unaided”Frankel said.
It is always: “The knights had the squires to remove it. Even for a very good one, it takes 10 minutes to remove it. Let’s say 5, at best. There’s no way Rhaenyra and Cole can do it in 10 seconds. […] I said it was important to see the struggle to remove the armor. Is heavy. How to remove the buckle? Boots? These are the things that worried me, because in my mind, they take away this feeling of archaic sex scene that has been around on tv and movies for so longand make everything real and as it should be“.
