5 Pornstars Who Appeared In ‘Game Of Thrones’
If there was any series that would accommodate the crossover from porn to television, it would be HBO’s Game Of Thrones. These five women got their big break playing prostitutes in the wildly successful show and were able to draw from their experiences from their previous jobs.
1. Jessica Jensen.
Jessica Jensen was 24 when she got her big break in Game Of Thrones. She had been in the porn industry before landing a small role as a prostitute in the many illicit Game Of Thrones scenes.
2. Samantha Bentley.
Samantha Bentley worked up close and personal with Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth) and she noted the differences between a porn set and TV series set. “It’s such a different experience. For example, a closed set is 100 people. If a porn set is closed, it’s the camera dude and whoever is f******. They say closed set and still have 100 people.”
3. Maisie Dee.
Maisie Dee is one of the more successful porn actresses turned Game of Thrones stars, as the writers were so impressed with her audition they created a role for her. She played Daisy, a prostitute at the Little Fingers Brothel.
4. Aeryn Walker.
Aeryn Walker’s name was swirling around the casting directors of Game of Thrones not only because of her work in porn but because of her obsession with cosplay. They cast her as one of the 19 wives of Caster, the Wilding who lived in the forest.
5. Sahara Knite.
Sahara Knite was another star who filmed her scenes in the Little Finger Brothel in the season one episode called “You Win or You Die”. She has acted in the porn industry for over ten years and starred in 60 porn films.
6. Sibel Kekilli.
Sibel Kikelli played a big part in Game of Thrones, appearing as Shae, a prostitute that ends up being Tyrion Lannister’s girlfriend. Although she’s received rewards for her incredible performances in Head-On and When We Leave, she’s not ashamed to admit she started out as a pornographic actress under the stage name Dilara.
The casting of porn stars was a stroke of genius really. The casting of the rest of the main characters was always going to be hard, especially when they had already been so extensively described in George R. R. Martin’s books. We now know the HBO versions of these characters so well but do the characters in the show look how they were supposed to look? Let’s see…
1. Tywin Lannister.
2. Joffrey (Lannister) Baratheon.
3. Tyrion Lannister.
4. Cersei Lannister.
6. Oberyn Martell.
7. Bran Stark.
8. Catelyn Stark.
9. Eddard (Ned) Stark.
10. Robb Stark.
11. Jon Snow.
12. Lord Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish.
13. Brienne of Tarth.
14. Ser Davos Seaworth.
15. Syrio Forel (First Sword of Braavos and Arya Stark’s teacher).
16. Melisandre (aka The Red Woman).
17. Stannis Baratheon.
18. Theon Greyjoy.
19. Sandor Clegane, aka “The Hound”.
20. Daario Naharis.
21. Daenerys Targaryen.
