First, bathing him in a tub and, second, lying motionless -- appearing reluctant and disengaged — beneath him in bed while he has sex with her.Carey, who was 17 at the time she read the script and 18 at the time of filming, says in an interview with that she was initially «scared» of performing the scenes with the then-47-year-old Considine.«We have an intimacy coordinator who was amazing,» Carey told the outlet«Again, still being 17, the first scene that I read from the show was my sex scene and my intimacy scenes, that includes the scene where I'm bathing the king — anything that felt intimate was considered an intimacy scene, which I thought was great.»An «intimacy coordinator» is someone whose job is to choreograph simulated sex scenes on film and television sets while being mindful of the wellbeing of the actors involved. «But, it scared me, because at that point I still hadn't met Paddy, I didn't know how much of a joy he was and how easy he was going to make [the scene], and all I saw was, you know, a 47-year-old man and me, I was a bit concerned,» she continued.

House of the Dragon star Olivia Cooke 'traumatised' as director ordered her to lose weight
“I was 18, so I had a chubby face because I was a child. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, I’m in the movie business, someone’s asked me to lose weight. It’s happening.’”She explained when the cast found out, they began sneaking her food and she added the experience “traumatised her”. Olivia went on, claiming that the unnamed director would taunt her with plates of sweet snacks. The Vanity Fair star thinks the atmosphere in film production is now “more sly” since that time, with directors knowing how to “word it” now. Speaking to the Daily Mail, she said she tries her best not to worry about her body, after discovering she had cellulite at the age of nine. Despite trying to fight it, she does find herself “down the rabbit hole” of Instagram occasionally, looking at others’ bodies. House of the Dragon will arrive this weekend on HBO Max and Sky. The series is set prior to the events of Game of Thrones and follows the origins of the house Targaryen. In the UK, viewers will be able to tune in on Sky Atlantic and the NOW streaming service. Speaking in an interview from March 2021, after she had recently been cast in her role, Olivia said she didn’t watch Game of Thrones until after she had landed the role. Talking with Metro.co.uk at the time, she admitted she couldn’t jump on to the fantasy bandwagon. She said: “I only watched it once I got the offer.
