"It was such an important scene, we shot it from so many angles. I think I washed his body 50 times. There would be a lot of people who would be very jealous, including my mother and sister. I was joking about that with him – ‘if only my mother could see this’ – and he loved that."
-- I edited that quote from Carice Van Houten (aka Melisandre on A Game of Thrones) to take out a spoiler from this past week's episode (and there are more spoilers at the link), although I'm pretty sure everybody knows what went down by now. I don't want to be the one to ruin anything though, since even though I saw it coming from outer space I still had it definitively spoiled for me since I had to wait 24 whole hours to watch the damn episode. God forbid you wait 24 hours!
Anyway we're not here to talk about spoilers, we're here to talk about being jealous of washing Naked Kit Harington, which we all are. (At that same link Kit describes the process of shooting this scene as "a teenage boy's wet dream" so you know, let your mind's wander.) Damn you, Carice! First you get to molest Joe Dempsie and now this. If I'd have realized what a coup that role was gonna be I'd have auditioned for it. I'd have made a super Melisandre. Or at least the one she looks like after she takes off her necklace.
