Game of Thrones actress asks: ‘Why are all the women naked?’
American fantasy drama Game of Thrones saw more nude women actresses than men
Game of Thrones star Sibel Kekilli recently highlighted double-standards over why women are required to reveal far more skin in comparison to men in the American fantasy drama television series.
When the 33-year-old German actress was asked during a London press conference whether more of the show’s male actors should shed their clothes, she said “Yes, of course. Why are all the women naked?” UK daily the Independent reported on Saturday.
“We’re going to talk to [writers] David Benioff and Dan Weiss,” she sarcastically added.
Known for its sexual content, Games of Thrones has its female characters often seen naked, while the male actors remained covered.
Kekilli, who had earlier in her career acted in pornographic films using the stage name “Dilara,” is not the first female actress to express such sentiments. Her co-star Carice van Houten has also voiced her opinion over the disparity when it comes to who appears naked on the show.
The show will enter its fourth season in April.
