Sex scenes add spice to the Game

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

NATHALIE Em­manuel (pic­tured), from Game Of Thrones, fails to un­der­stand why some view­ers were of­fended by the raunchy scenes on the hit TV se­ries as she’s con­vinced they add au­then­tic­ity to the show. The show has at­tracted con­tro­versy over the graphic sex scenes but the Bri­tish ac­tress, who plays slave girl Mis­sandei on the me­dieval fan­tasy se­ries, in­sists the drama is a true por­trayal of hu­man na­ture. ‘‘Ev­ery­one is en­ti­tled to their own opin­ion but in the books it’s very raw and real and that’s why a lot of peo­ple love the show,’’ she says. ‘‘It’s not afraid to push the bound­aries and make you feel shocked. ‘‘Sex is what we do as hu­mans. It’s not any­thing alien, it’s just real. ‘‘The sex scenes make it re­al­is­tic and au­then­tic, it’s some­thing the show does re­ally well.’’ And Em­manuel is so sup­port­ive of the show’s sex scenes she wouldn’t mind strip­ping off her­self.
