Carice Van Houten Defends The Plentiful Nudity On GAME OF THRONES

The gorgeous Dutch actress, who plays the mysterious witch Melisandre on HBO's fantasy drama series, has defended the regular instances of people getting butt nekkid on the show. She also teases a little of what we can expect from her character in season 4.



HBO's Game Of Thrones has come in for a fair bit of criticism for it's liberal use of sex and nudity, but one actress from the show definitely doesn't see what all the fuss is about. While attending a press event in London to promote Season 4 of Game Of Thrones, Carice van Houten (Melisandre) was quick to jump to the defense of the series when asked about the bare skin on display. “We can see machine guns but we can’t see f**king – sorry – people? I really don’t get, I have to make a point here. Who sleeps with their bra on? I mean, sorry if that’s a Dutch approach but I think we need to get used to it. It’s part of life.” Whatever your views on the amount of nudity, she's right -- we can see shootings, blood, guts, severed heads and disembowelments all day long and nobody bats an eyelid; but if someone gets their kit off there's uproar! Van Houten also comments on where we'll find her character in season 4, admitting that we won't see quite as much of Melisandre as last year (boo!) “Stannis has a light season this year but we have a few meaty scenes", she promises. "Our storyline is going to move somewhere else and it’s going to be interesting because it’s going to collide with a world which we also know, and what’s going to happen there.” More at the link below.
