'Game Of Thrones' Actress Wants More Male Nudity On The Show

Game

German actress Sibel Kekilli, who plays prostitute Shae, Peter Dinklage’s (a.k.a. Tyrion Lannister’s) love interest on HBO’s Game of Thrones has called upon the show’s creators to inject the show with a bit more of the naked male form, according to The Independent:

When asked whether more of the show's male actors should shed their clothes, she said “ Yes, of course. Why are all the women naked? “I mean good-looking guys. I want to see Conleth Hill and [Nikolaj Coster-Waldau] and Peter Dinklage.”

Speaking during a recent press conference in London, she jokingly added “We’re going to talk to [writers] David Benioff and Dan Weiss.”

Kekilli...is another actress to call for more male nudity on the show, her co-star Carice van Houten has also expressed similar sentiments.

Kekilli and van Houten aren’t the only ones wanting to see more of the men. Vulture’s Matt Zoller Seitz last year called upon the hit fantasy series to focus its gaze more on the male characters' bodies:

I’d like Game of Thrones to enlarge the scope of its fantasy­ — to show more same-sex couplings and male nudity — as Starz’s Spartacus series has done with such panache. For all its tough, complicated women characters, Thrones is rightly perceived as too much of a ­sausagefest. The producers could change that perception by adding more sausage.

As previously reported, actor Finn Jones, who plays Ser Loras Tyrell, a character who’s no stranger to the homosexual tryst, also complained that the show was specifically lacking in the hot gay action department.

'Game of Thrones' Actor Kristian Nairn Comes Out: 'The Gay Community' is 'MY Community'

Nairn

Kristian Nairn, who plays Hodor on Game of Thrones, came out of the closet publicly in an interview at Winter is Coming.

Nairn was asked about his big following in the gay community, specifically the Bear community.

Said Nairn:

Well, in all honesty, when you talk about “the gay community,” you are talking about MY community, haha. I AM aware of it yeah, and I think it’s really lovely. There’s not a day that I don’t get a few messages, but 99% or more are super sweet and nothing smutty at all! Again, it’s a privilege, and I really mean that. I’ve never hidden my sexuality from anyone, my whole life in fact, and I’ve been waiting for someone to ask about it in an interview, cos it’s not something you just blurt out. I’ve tried to lead the questions a few times, to no avail!

Kit Harington Shares The Secret Of His Abs

Kit Harington Pompeii

In stark contrast to the heavy coats and furs he wears as Jon Snow in HBO's Game of Thrones series, Kit Harington doffs the winter wear in exchange for a loincloth and arm guard for his role in Pompeii and accompanies the outfit with the perfect accessory of a shredded six pack. In his interview with Vanity Fair, Harington was generous enough to share the secret to his stomach, and it turns out it's a simple 4-part process. All that's required is a daily regimen of:

  • An hour of lifting weights
  • An hour of cardio
  • Two hours of weapons training
  • An 1,800 calorie diet

Easy! As an added bonus, Harington's weapons training has improved his fighting performance on the set of Game of Thrones as well, so much so that director Neil Marshall called Pompeii director Paul W.S. Anderson to thank him personally.

We thank you too, Neil.
