Game Of Thrones has faced criticism regarding acts towards the women. As for the last season of GoT, fans of the drama series were angered when a particular scene shows Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) violently raped by Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon).
The scene was not in the book series. In the scene, Ramsay Bolton raped Sansa on their wedding night. Theon Greyjoy, Sansa’s former friend, was forced to witness the act.
Fans threatened to boycott Game Of Thrones back then, and a fan of the series tweeted, “There is such a thing as crossing the line, and you definitely did that with #Sansa. Don’t ruin a great show for shock.”
At the present, the Game Of Thrones director made it known to viewers that depictions of sexual violence will change.
However, a recent interview with Natalie Dormer, who plays Margaery Tyrell in the series, has addressed claims that Game of Thrones glorifies violence. Dormer’s character has had some controversial scenes in the series that include seducing a 12-year-old boy to stay on the throne.
Natalie stated, “All I know is that I turn on the news, and it’s covering a boy drowning off the coast, or children being shown beheading videos.
“The horror of human nature is a common thing in our world, and I admire that some individuals want to turn on their television for escapism – but if that’s what people want, don’t watch Game of Thrones.”
Dormer added, “An actor is a channel to a writer. The message comes from the writing. I can’t defend everything Margaery does, as that’s not my job.”
The Daily Star reports that 34-year-old Dormer also said there were some characters of Game of Thrones who are misogynistic. Game Of Thrones season 6 will first air on Sunday, April 24, 2016.
