Shocking Game of Thrones Scene Too Extreme for TV! Cut from House of the Dragon!

The actress Olivia Cooke, who plays Alicent Hightower in “House of the Dragon,” disclosed that one of her most outrageous sex scenes got trimmed off from the “Game of Thrones” prequel’s final cut.

After two years of anticipation, season 2 of House of the Dragon has finally premiered, and it’s here to stay for several weeks! While fans have already experienced the first episode of this Game of Thrones spin-off series, they still have seven more episodes to savor to complete the season.

This second batch of episodes, based on George R.R. Martin’s novel Fire and Blood, promises a bloody and bewildering journey as it plunges into the heart of the matter right from the first episode, launching the infamous “Dance of Dragons,” a bloody war between Rhaenyra’s clan (Emma D’Arcy) and Aegon’s clan (Tom Glynn-Carney) that spanned several years and ravaged the Targaryen empire.

While violence is an integral part of the Game of Thrones universe, sex also punctuates the relationships between the characters in this ruthless world. However, House of the Dragon fans missed out on a “beastly” sex scene, according to one of the series’ actresses.

A Beastly Sex Scene Cut from Season 2 of “House of the Dragon”

In Season 2 of House of the Dragon, Alicent Hightower, portrayed by Olivia Cooke, does everything to ensure her son Aegon keeps his Iron Throne while indulging in moments of pleasure with knight Criston Cole (Fabien Frankel).

From the first episode, the two characters share intimate scenes and season 2 is expected to feature several more. However, Olivia Cooke disclosed to Elle that a sex scene, described by her as “beastly” and “carnal,” was edited out.

“It was really a mess. It wasn’t pretty, and it was really fun to do,” she stated, “I think Ryan [Condal, the showrunner] said that we didn’t learn more about the characters, which I slightly disagree with, but that’s okay. It’s his show.”

Even though she would have liked that specific sequence to be kept in the final cut, Olivia Cooke is quite pleased to see that House of the Dragon doesn’t overdo sex scenes. “I thought there would be a lot more [in the series], and I’m thus relieved that my scenes mainly serve to show that Alicent is enjoying herself and being cared for, which is amazing and doesn’t seem gratuitous”, she explained. According to her, “It serves the story.”

The first episode of “House of the Dragon” Season 2 is now available on the MAX platform.
