‘We Were Told To Go For It’, Nothing Was Choreographed’ : Game Of Thrones’ Star Gemma Whelan Reveals How They Filmed S3x Scenes

Published

HBO hit TV series, “Game of Thrones” actress, Gemma Whelan has revealed how sex scenes were filmed on the show.

According to Wheland filming sex scenes was a “frenzied mess.”

Whelan joined the series in the show’s second season, playing the fierce warrior Yara Greyjoy. The actor continued to have a key role until the end of the series in 2019.

Speaking with The Guardian about her new show “The Tower,” Whelan mentioned the sex scenes in “Game of Thrones,” saying they were not really choreographed.

“They used to just say, ‘When we shout action, go for it!’ and it could be a sort of frenzied mess,” Whelan said. “But between the actors, there was always an instinct to check in with each other.”

She continued: “There was a scene in a brothel with a woman and she was so exposed that we talked together about where the camera would be and what she was happy with. A director might say, ‘Bit of boob biting, then slap her bum and go!’ But I’d always talk it through with the other actor.”

One of Whelan’s significant sex scenes in “Game of Thrones” was in season two, episode two, when her character was seduced by her own brother, Theon Lovejoy (Alfie Allen), who did not recognize his sister.

Whelan previously said on “The Graham Norton Show” that she auditioned for the show using that scene but originally Yara was seducing her brother.

Whelan told The Guardian that intimacy directors — professionals who help choreograph intimate scenes between actors — would have been helpful during that scene.

“Alfie was very much: ‘Is this OK? How are we going to make this work?’ With intimacy directors, it’s choreography — you move there, I move there, and permission and consent is given before you start,” she said. “It is a step in the right direction.”

Whelan also talked to The Guardian about how the film industry had changed since the #MeToo movement, which shed a light on sexual abuse and harassment in Hollywood.

“There’s a very different choice of language now,” the “Game of Thrones” star said. “If anyone makes an innuendo, everyone shuts down. I think, five or 10 years ago, if there was a double entendre, everyone would jump on the bandwagon and see how many laughs they could raise.”

“I remember when an actor would have a microphone fitted, and sometimes you have to root around the waist,” she continued. “And, in the past, there’d be all this, ‘And while you’re down there, hur, hur!’ But now you don’t have to play along with things like that.”

Whelan praised the effects of the movement in Hollywood.

“But I don’t miss it,” she told The Guardian. “You have to be a bit more genuine now if you’re saying hello. You can’t hide behind a big hug,” she added. “And there’s no question mark over it: Do we double kiss? Do we hug? Clasp hands? No, we just say hello to each other.”

“Whenever I’m Releasing Music They Try To Pull Some Real Bulls**t” : Chris Brown Reacts To Being Sued $20Million For Alleged Rape

Chris Brown has reacted after he was sued for $20 million for alleged rape.

According to TMZ, the 32-year-old artist is accused of raping a woman in late 2020 outside Diddy’s Star Island home. The plaintiff, identified as Jane Doe, claims she was speaking to a friend via FaceTime when Brown grabbed the friend’s phone and told her to come to Miami immediately.

The lawsuit states the woman who describes herself as a model, choreographer, and musical artist arrived on the property on Dec. 20 and met Brown on a yacht parked at Diddy’s residence.

Shortly after she boarded the yacht, Brown allegedly asked her if she wanted a drink. The complaint states she accepted the offer and followed the singer into the yacht’s kitchen area, where she was handed a mixed drink.

Jane Doe says she and Brown began talking before she was given a refill; it was at that time, the woman claims to have experienced “a sudden, unexplained change in consciousness.”

The lawsuit alleges the woman became “disoriented, physically unstable, and started to fall in and out of sleep.” Brown then allegedly took her to a bedroom while she was “drugged” and wouldn’t let her leave. Jane Doe says Brown then removed her bathing suit bottom and began kissing her.

She claims the artist ignored her pleas to stop and proceeded to rape her.

According to the complaint, Brown then ejaculated inside the woman, stood up, and told her that he was “done.”

The woman is seeking $20 million damages over the emotional stress caused by the alleged attack.

Reacting on Instagram, the American R&B singer describe the claim as ” bulls**t” and went on to suggest that there is always an agenda brought up against him whenever he’s planning to drop new music or a project.

Side Chicks Are The Major Reasons A Lot Of Men Still Stay Married : Blessing Okoro

Published

Aside from the devil, side chicks have been tagged as the latest unapologetic creatures causing a nuisance to the institution of marriage.

These mistresses, usually young women, have a penchant for the husbands of other women and in the long run, end up ruining beautiful homes with their stinking habit to get rich quick.

A number of debates and proffered solutions to this canker have yielded no results, leaving married women in a dilemma about how to save their homes from such women who don’t stop in their tracks until they get what they want.

However, a popular Nigerian relationship coach has spoken to the importance of side chicks in a men’s life.

According to Blessing Okoro, side chicks are “one of the major reasons a lot of men still stay married.

She explained that side chicks are like spare tyres to cars. They act as a replacement when the main tyre is deflated until the owners fix the substantive tyres to keep the car going again.

Well, her elucidation is highly disputable because it does not solve the problems of married women but only gives more grease to the elbows of side chicks to reinforce their modus operandi.
