1. Neil Marshall on nudity and sexposition in ‘Game of Thrones’

    Empire: I have a question about the nudity. We didn’t bring this up with George when he was here, but obviously it’s kind of become a thing in pop culture—the amount of nudity and “sexposition” scenes in Game of Thrones. You have a sexposition scene in this. Can you talk about that? [Laughter] What’s your position on sexposition?

    Neil Marshall: It was pretty surreal. I’d not done anything like that in my films before. But the weirdest part was when you have one of the exec producers leaning over your shoulder, going, “You can go full frontal, you know. [Laughter] This is television—you can do whatever you want! And do it! I urge you to do it.” So I was like, “Okay, well, if you—you’re the boss.” 

    So they’re not worried, they’re not trying to pull back on it?

    Not in the slightest, no, no. This particular exec took me to one side and said, “Look, I represent the pervert side of the audience, okay? Everybody else is the serious drama side—I represent the perv side of the audience, and I’m saying I want full frontal nudity in this scene.” So you go ahead and do it.

    —from Empire Magazine’s podcast interview with director Neil Marshall about his work on the “Blackwater” episode of Game of Thrones
