'House of the Dragon' Writer Says the Show Won't 'Depict Sexual Violence' Against Women On-Screen

One of the writers on HBO’s new Game of Thrones spinoff House of the Dragon is speaking out.

Last month, House of the Dragon director and co-showrunner Miguel Sapochnik told THR that the series would be “pulls back” on depictions of sexual violence, but added that “violence against women is still very much part of the world.”

“[We] don’t shy away from it,” Miguel said. “If anything, we’re going to shine a light on that aspect. You can’t ignore the violence that was perpetrated on women by men in that time. It shouldn’t be downplayed and it shouldn’t be glorified.”

But in a new interview with Vanity Fair, writer and executive producer Sara Hess shared that the new show will “not depict sexual violence” onscreen.
