Although it is still a little over two weeks before ryan county & Miguel SapochnikThe prequel series of ten episodes of “Game of Thrones” house of the dragon is unleashed on our screens, is it starting to look like maybe HBO could bring the premiere forward? We’re just posting that because we don’t know how many questions there are left to ask, answer, ask again, and then answer again (and so on). But until that happens, we’ll continue to cover the most surprising quotes from the entire sea of interviews. For example, rolling stone uk had an excellent profile matt smith (doctor who), who plays Prince Daemon Targaryen, the younger brother of considine riceKing Viserys. For this walkthrough, Smith offers a fan’s perspective on the GOT series finale. And from there, he discusses his character’s sex scenes and his feeling that the number was “a little excessive.”
Smith on the end of GOT: “I think you’re always going to disappoint some people. In the end, the body of work they produced stands out. Was it a perfect ending? It’s a matter of opinion. It didn’t bother me, I liked it.”
Smith in sex scenes: Confirming that Daemon won’t be short of sex scenes (“Yeah, a little too much, if you ask me”), Smith wondered if they were all necessary: Do we need another sex scene? And they say, ‘Yes, we do.’ I guess you have to ask yourself, ‘What are you doing? Are you representing the books, or are you diluting the books to represent time? [we’re living in]?’ And I actually think it’s your job to truthfully and honestly represent the books as they were written.”
And here’s a look back at the previously released official trailer for the series, which will premiere on August 21:
