Sex scenes add spice to the Game
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.
