The second season of “Game of Thrones” may have ended a few weeks ago, but you done lost your mind if you think we’re going to stop discussing it here. Especially if cast members are going to be giving profanity-filled interviews about nudity and pubic hair, like the one Natalia Tena (who plays Osha on the show) did with The Independent. She seems like a fun lady.
I ask her how she felt about doing the scene and Tena does not mince her words. ‘I don’t give a f-ck about nakedness. As an actor, […] obviously if it calls for it. You’re not just going to get naked otherwise that’s just basically doing porn. But if it calls for it, I really think you should get over yourself.’
Tena explains that she asked the makers about wearing a pubic wig or even growing her hair for the scene. ‘I was a bit upset about the fact that they showed my minge without hair because I think my character would have a massive bush. I would have muff, like a muff coming down the thighs.’
Just like “Rome” and “Spartacus: Blood and Sand,” “Game of Thrones” is well-known for its bare breasts and sex. In each episode there is at least one nude or semi-naked woman yet the male characters are rarely seen unclothed. Does Tena think there is a disparity in the nudity ratio between men and women?
‘There’s that in everything in the world. I think it’s really unfair, every actor, any actress has had her tits out. Every single actress I know. Blokes it’s like, let’s see some cock. Do you know what I mean? Let’s make it more even.’
She certainly makes some fair points here. There is a great disparity in male and female nudity on film and television.

It’s important to be informed, everybody.
