Women directors and screenwriters
Steve Toussaint, who rebuffed racist attacks very recently, is aware of the criticism of Game Of Thrones. Both from fans and insiders about how the universe portrays women. House of the Dragon, without pouring into watered down or censorshipintends to face it by adapting to the times.
The actor notably talks about Emilia Clarke and the embarrassment she shared about sexual scenes or moments of nudity.
I never met Emilia Clarke but I read what she said and how it has asserted itself over the seasons. In the beginning, you see all sorts of things happening to him. I hope in House of the Dragonthe importance of other voices in the room is felt.
The fact that we have women directors and screenwriters makes things better. There are violence and sexbut the heart of the story is the conflict between two women, Rhaenyra and Alicent Hightwoer.
I don’t know if this reflects the status and power of women in our society. It is a relationship. of people who try to maneuver. To read in the eyes of the other.
