Like the question says, what's with this? Not like it don't like it. I love porn but what do they cast them in the show?

The girl who plays the silent whore, the one on Bronn's lap. She is a porn star.

And Shae too, that actress is a retired porn star.

I think they should cast a porn star for Arianne's character too. Destiny Deville would be perfect. She's Indian and from England, and hella sexy too!!

Now Shae is beautiful, but I must say she looked way hotter in season one. I don't know wat happened in season too, but she still got it. An alterative, if they even did or needed to cast one for her character, then I think Katsuni should portray her. Now Katsuni is French and Vietnamese, and I know Shae is not, but Talisa's background was changed.

But long story short if Katsuni was cast. as a replacement they could say she's from Yi Ti

In conclusion why does D&B cast porn stars? And who what porn stars would you like to see on GOT, and as who?

It's a mystery to me why they would cast people who've had sex on camera for money to play prostitutes on a TV show.

I'm having a hard time understanding what the mystery is here. Read your question again, closely:

"Why would anyone cast super hot porn stars in a TV show?"

I'm guessing it has something to do with casting actors who are completely comfortable around sex, and porn stars are exactly that. I would call it a mistake with Shae, because that role requires acting talent that the girl simply doesn't have.

This, basically

Sibel isn't going to win any Emmys, but she does what the role asks of her.

lol

But what's the problem with porno actresses if they fulfill the role they are playing. Some scenes can't be portrait by normal actresses.

Well they can, but if you're going to have a gratutious fanservice scene involving a naked woman, why not use someone who's comfortable in that role? The woman playing Shae might not be up to it, but the way she casually slips off her clothes when Tyrion asks - well, no acting required; this is clearly a woman who's used to stripping off for men, and doesn't regard it as a big deal.

Seriously was Shae a porn star? I'm apalled. She's not that bad an actress. I love her accent too anyone knows what accent that is?????
I'm all for it. Maybe they got tired of having sex in front of cameras all the time and want to try something new.
I would like for a male porn star too, please. We women have equal rights dont we? Maybe as a body double for Tormund.

Sibel Kilkeli is German of Turkish descent. Probably one of those.

Probably because real actresses don't do nude scenes for 50 bucks.

Pretty much. She appeared in approximately 20 titles in a two-year period. She was then cast in a proper film called Head-On in 2004, which won immense praise and numerous awards (including several for Kekilli herself). Since then she has appeared in nine mainstream films, winning several more awards.

If you want to categorise it as such, Kekilli had a brief porn career lasting two years and then retired from the field to become a mainstream actress, and has not made any adult movies for more than a decade. This is different to some of the other actresses named, who are still adult film stars now and have been recruited more for their comfort in performing scenes naked. Kekilli was cast mainly for her acting ability (which I think is quite impressive, despite her accent; she's not been speaking English for very long).

It is done to attract the porn audience as well. You can't underestimate the money / extra viewers it brings in. I don't mind it as long as they can act. They're humans too, you know.

Why the hell not? The actress who plays Shae has won prestigious awards for her acting talent outside of porn, you know. She hasn't been in the adult film industry for over a decade.

As for the others who are still adult film actresses, well; the majority of them are playing prostitutes and this comfort in appearing naked and performing sex acts might just be a good reason to cast actors who have worked in the porn industry.

Yes!
Although that would require actually showing the bear sex scene in the show. Now that would be something no TV has ever done before!

It's to do with getting cheap unknowns that are fine with doing nudity. Esme Bianco(who plays Ros) was also a cabaret/burlesque performer, according to wiki. Not nearly on the same level as porn, but you get the idea. The whore that was beaten on Joffrey's orders was also a porn star, IIRC. I'm guessing that you'd probably need to bump up an actress's salary if she needs to do full-frontal nudity, which is why they choose to instead get unknown pornstars-it costs less, and requires minimum levels of acting.

Lol, good luck trying to ban porn in the age of the internet.

You have nudity scenes with male actors. Theon (shortly) and don't forget Hodor. Be happy what you get.

This. Can't really see the problem as long as it doesn't affect the quality of the acting or the show in general (which I don't think it does).
