For many actors sex scenes are nothing but awkward but one Game of Thrones actor actually doesn’t seem fussed about them.

As part of the publicity tour for Game of Thrones season six, the actor Dean-Charles Chapma (who plays the less evil Baratheon bastard Tommen) took part in a round table interview, when the topic of his sex scene came up, the Independent reports.

More specifically, the 18-year-old was asked about the scene between his character and Natalie Dormer’s Margaery Tyrell, which is noteworthy for being one of the show’s more awkward sex scenes – and, considering this is a programme which frequently shows incest, that should tell you something about how excruciating it was.

The reason for the awkwardness isn’t the age difference between the two actors – Dormer is 34-years-old – although that certainly plays a role in it.

It’s more that Tommen is a pre-teen boy copping off with his dead brother’s wife who’s using him in an attempt to become Queen, in a ploy which is about as subtle as a Lannister wedding.

Yet, according to Chapman, the scene wasn’t awkward for him at all.

Chapman explained:

I wasn’t expecting that and [creators] David Benioff and Dan Weiss as a joke came up to me and told me, ‘Oh, we’ve done you a favour, we’ve written you in a cheeky little sex scene’ and I was like, ‘cheers.’ That was the last thing I was expecting.

It’s not awkward, it might look awkward on screen because of the age difference but it’s pretend, it’s all pretend. We’re actors, Natalie’s a lovely person; she made me feel unbelievably comfortable. Hopefully she was comfortable with me. But the sex scene and stuff, it all ran smoothly. It’s all planned, we talk about it… it’s a normal day.

He added that the most difficult thing about playing Tommen was acting younger than he really is. Seems to us like Chapman is maturer than his years may imply…
