In addition to the epic battle scenes, the feature of “Game of Thrones” is the hot scene. In the “House of Dragon” prequel, the film also attracts the audience’s attention because of the 18+ scene. Even movie actors find it awkward to play the role.
According to the Daily Mail, Emily Carey – star of House of Dragon – said she felt scared while filming a hot scene with her co-star Paddy Considine, who is 30 years older than her.
In the Game of Thrones prequel, the 19-year-old female star plays Alicent Hightower. She is married to King Viserys (Paddy Considine). In the latest episode, Alicent was woken up in the middle of the night by a servant to meet and serve the king.
In an interview with Newsweek, Emily shared that she was nervous, even afraid to know that she would act in a hot scene with strangers: “At that time, I was very scared when I read the script because I had not met Paddy. I did not know. Was he cooperative and was the scene easy to make?”

According to the actress, the first scene she read when she received the script was the intimate scenes, having sex. “You know, all I know is to have to watch sex with a 47-year-old man. I was a little nervous and scared,” she added.
Emily said she watched Game of Thrones to prepare for the role. Some violent sex scenes made her nervous and unsure of what she would do in House of Dragon. She just feels more comfortable with a guide.
“It’s like a door to escape and makes me not awkward. I handle hot scenes much easier,” she shared.
House of Dragon is set 172 years before Game Of Thrones and is based on the novel Fire & Blood by George RR Martin. The film follows the Targaryen family and conquers and dominates the continent of Westeros through the ability to control dragons. The key point of the film is that inbreeding relationships make the family weak, the descendants unhealthy.
The movie is getting as much attention as Game of Thrones.
In addition, a civil war called Dance of the Dragons between two sisters Princess Rhaenyra (the character heir to the throne played by actress Emma D’Arcy) and Prince Aegon II (played by Tom Glynn-Carney) of The Targaryens are notable. The competition for the throne after the king’s death, the rise of the great clans… are factors that attract the audience.
After airing on August 21, the film received many positive reviews. According to Variety, the fantasy series had more than 10 million views on its opening night. Now, that number has skyrocketed to 20 million, making the Game of Thrones prequel the film with the largest audience following HBO’s debut.
