Iwan Rheon recalls with horror one scene with Sansa Stark.
Iwan Rheon, who played one of the main villains in Game of Thrones, shared his memories of filming the series with Metro. He noted that the day of filming the scene in which Ramsey Bolton rapes Sansa Stark was “the worst of his career.”
“It was horror. Nobody wanted to be present. Nobody wanted to do this, but since we decided to tell a story, we must tell it honestly. But it was very hard to watch. It was the worst day of my career, ”Ivan said.
The actor says that the bloody scenes are flowers. “When you cut off someone’s finger, it doesn’t really happen, they just show a close-up of a piece of plastic later. This is a game, this is unreal. But in scenes like this [насилия] you are immersed in the reality of what is happening, and it’s hard to bear. It was a terrible, terrible day. We shouldn’t worry about it at all, in fact, because this shouldn’t be the case in the world at all. But, unfortunately, it is there, ”the actor shared.
Last year, Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa, also commented on the shooting of the violent scene. It seems that it was easier for her. “At first it seemed to me that everything that Sansa had gone through had not attached to me. But then I realized that, although it did not affect me emotionally, I began to think about such things as domestic violence and assault, and this awakened an activist in me, ”Sophie told Harper’s Bazaar.
