Addresses rape scene

22 Apr, 2014

Martin responds to fans who are disturbed by a violent sex scene in GOT Season 4 Episode 3 Breaker of Chains. The scene differs from its portrayal in the book, closely resembling rape on screen:

On the TV show, the camera is necessarily external. You don’t know what anyone is thinking or feeling, just what they are saying and doing… The scene was always intended to be disturbing… but I do regret if it has disturbed people for the wrong reasons.
