D&D working hard at adapting the Song of Ice and Fire into Game of Thrones
This is such an important yet underrated scene.
#this fucker says maybe 5 or 6 lines the whole film and yet everyone is thirsty as Heck for him #no wonder HYDRA keeps him in the freezer #’cause when they let him out he burns down entire cities with the force of his Sad Trash Hobo gaze

what idiots just do it already
(*) When I interviewed Alex Graves about “The Lion and the Rose,” we also spoke briefly about the Jaime/Cersei scene and about how the encounter starts out as Jaime forcing himself on her, then turns into something else. This is what he said:
"Well, it becomes consensual by the end, because anything for them ultimately results in a turn-on, especially a power struggle. Nobody really wanted to talk about what was going on between the two characters, so we had a rehearsal that was a blocking rehearsal. And it was very much about the earlier part with Charles (Dance) and the gentle verbal kidnapping of Cersei’s last living son. Nikolaj came in and we just went through one physical progression and digression of what they went through, but also how to do it with only one hand, because it was Nikolaj. By the time you do that and you walk through it, the actors feel comfortable going home to think about it. The only other thing I did was that ordinarily, you rehearse the night before, and I wanted to rehearse that scene four days before, so that we could think about everything. And it worked out really well. That’s one of my favorite scenes I’ve ever done."

THIS IS THE FUCKING PROBLEM WITH NOT HAVING ENOUGH WOMEN ON YOUR WRITING STAFF AND ON YOUR CREW.
WOMEN WOULD KNOW…
WHAT THAT FUCKING SCENE WAS.
There’s something seriously wrong when a tv network believes that it’s audience would rather see Jaime Lannister rape Cersei instead of enjoying consensual sex with the woman he loves. HBO’s insistence on adding extra violence towards women in the series is truly disgusting.
My friend said this tonight and I agree: “They weren’t comfortable with period sex, so they had to make it rapey.”
