In an interview with The Post, the young actress said that –

No, strangely enough. [Matt Smith and I] were just kind of mates. So, it was quite comfortable. We had an intimacy coordinator, and we worked with her through the rehearsal process and blocked it out months before. Clare Kilner, our director, made sure that we hadn’t seen any of the brothel stuff until we were shooting. So, that was our first time walking through the brothel, and he’s guiding her through the room with all of these other bodies. So, that was quite shocking. You’re like, ‘This is kind of weird and silly.’ There were extras who we had just met who were like, 69-ing for 12 hours. It’s pretty gnarly. We felt pretty overdressed, because everyone else was nude.”

I think it’s complicated, I think Daemon is good for her … but whether or not he’s the right thing for her, time will tell.

In a previous interview, the actress said that –

Rhaenyra is at an age where she can’t tell the difference between platonic love, romantic love and lust, because she hasn’t lived long enough and gone through those experiences. I think that she understands that there’s a feeling here [with Daemon], but she’s not quite sure where it lands, and how to behave with it and navigate it.”

Daemon leaves Rhaenyra after they have a moment together. Rhaenyra goes home and loses her virginity to Ser Criston Cole, who is supposed to be guarding her door at night. After the king hears about what happened, Daemon gets exiled again.

I wrestled with [her feelings for Criston] the whole time, in the show. I think that she wants to be seen, and ultimately Daemon and Cristan Cole are the only two people who really see her. Both of them see her for different reasons. Daemon kind of has the upper hand, and Rhaenyra has the upper hand with Cole, and that turns her on a bit.

I think that she genuinely likes him. But I don’t think she would pick him over Daemon, ultimately.”
