House of The Dragon crew responds to Sean Bean’s comment about the unnecessity of intimacy coordinators




The success of Game of Thrones was littered with a minefield of controversies, and some of the most explosive ones were those labeled as “nudity and sex scenes”. Over the years, fans, critics, and the actors themselves have come up with their own ideas and experiences regarding how they felt about those scenes, and they vary a lot, from funny, and annoying, to downright scary and uncomfortable. However, there are some people who are well-versed in the act of filming love-making sequences and help the performers get cozy in front of the camera, known as intimacy coordinators. And Game of Thrones alum Sean Bean recently pointed out that these so-called “coordinators” seem unnecessary to him.

Miriam Lucia, an intimacy coordinator on House of The Dragon, recently responded to Bean’s comment in an interview with Deadline, “I love him as an actor, and I’ve just watched Marriage: he’s great in that. I just think he is a man of a certain age, who has been in this industry for a very long time, and he doesn’t have an experience of the other side. Or maybe he’s had a bad experience of working with an intimacy coordinator.”

She continued, “All I would say is that in my experience so far, I don’t think it gets in the way of the creative process. I think it helps to enable the creative process, because I think once you’ve worked out what the actors are comfortable with in terms of touch and consent, and what the movements are going to be, then you add the emotion to it. And then you find the freedom, because you’re not scrambling and fumbling and trying to find it there and then in the moment.”
