“You do find yourself asking, ‘Do we need another sex scene?’” he said. “And they’re like, ‘Yeah, we do.’”

He continued, “I guess you have to ask yourself: ‘What are you doing? Are you representing the books, or are you diluting the books to represent the time [we’re living in]?’ And I actually think it’s your job to represent the books truthfully and honestly, as they were written.”


When asked if his own character, Prince Daemon Targaryen, has his own sex scenes in the show, Smith joked, “Yeah — slightly too much, if you ask me.”
