Shae played by pornstar- not an issue?

Recommended Posts

I´ve been wondering what the attitude of GRRM and the producers is towards Sibel Kekilli´s early career as a hardcore pornstar? I was bit surprised when I read that she had been cast for the role, she created quite stir here in Germany when she won a major movie award a few years ago and her past was revealed. I´d have expected the Merkins to be a bit more prim and prudish about that...glad to see I´ve been wrong :-)

HBO has hired convicted felons on their shows - and Chloe Sevigny of Big Love is also quite famous for a hardcore oral sex scene in one of her movies. Not shocking at all, considering that Sibel is supposed to be quite talented and a legitimate actress now. It would be more surprising if this was say, network television. But HBO knows what they are doing and they aren't afraid to take risks with their stars if they are the right person for the job.

Why would anyone sane give half a shit as lons as she can do her job and do it well?

Also, you try to read something other than BILD once in a while. You might even like it.

Madking,

just google her name and maybe add torrent, I'm pretty sure you will strike gold in short order.

She's not a porn star. She starred in one porn. Let's not make her out into Belladonna or Sasha Grey or something.

She was also acclaimed in acting roles she's done.

WTF is your problem??? That´s legitimate question, isn´t it?

You complain about BILD, and in the next sentence you go ahead and tell everybody and his dog how to find her stuff???

Plus, if you stop to think about it for a minute, it´s not very likely I´d have been on the board as long as I have if I read nothing but BILD, is it...

It's not a problem. It was something from her past, and in any case, she's a mainstream actress now who's revealed a great talent as an actress. The many awards she's been nominated for and won proves that. She'll be terrific as Shae, I expect.

I don't give a shit either, but I'm also confused by the OP's apparent belief that Americans would be aware of various tabloid scandals involving actresses with very little exposure over here. Head-On--which is where I know her from--made something like fifty bucks in its American theatrical release, almost entirely from an art-house audience that wouldn't be shocked by the news that Kekilli had once starred in a pornographic movie. (Its audience presumably overlaps a lot with The Girlfriend Experience, which starred Sasha Grey and which also made like fifty bucks.) Now she's playing a tertiary role in an upcoming TV show. She doesn't have anywhere near the presence for this to become an issue for the American public.

I, for one, champion more porn stars to show up in this show! Gianna Michaels would make a lovely tavern wench. ~_^

So who else wants to confess that they immediately googled her name, having never heard of her, and was somewhat disappointed that she hardly even looks like an industry porn star :P. Very waifish looking woman, and most of her photo stills are conservative.

Also, quick look at her wiki entry shows that she was more acclaimed for her dramatic roles in German films, and her "porn" history only surfaced afterwards by ravenous tabloids. I'd say give her a break -- she's not some Sasha Grey here. I was more disturbed by that ex-porn star who became a high school teacher.

Kirk Cameron is not pleased. Not just about Sibel Kekilli, but about the show and book series in general. Also, about atheists. And heathens, too, probably.

Actually, HBO hired Sasha Grey for about half of last season on "Entourage" to play herself as Vince's girlfriend.

On "The Wire," they hired a number of ex-cons to play roles, the most notorious no doubt being "Little" Melvin Williams, who was the #1 drug kingpin in Baltimore in the 1970's and 1980's, where he played a reverend. (Before he was finally caught in the 80's by "The Wire's" co-creator Ed Burns, he claims he had made several hundred million dollars.

I know, Brude, that's why I brought it up.

And that's a good point - Sasha Grey (and other porn stars, actual porn stars) have starred multiple times on HBO shows. HBO has had no problem simulating sex of all sorts and kinds, having massively brutal violence on screen and to my knowledge the biggest protests they've ever had have come over their portrayal of mormons as all wanting multiple wives.

I dunno about that she's only come out in one porn. I went to a site and put her name into the search and it popped up (hey now!) 52 different clips. They definitely were not all from the same movie/video.

But as you guys have mentioned, more than one porn actress has made a successful transition to mainsteam film. We haven't even mentioned Traci Lords who starred in porn at age 15 (causing a huge scandal) and went on to appear in movies with actors like Johnny Depp and to appearing on tv shows like "Gilmore Girls"

I can not imagine a better casting fit, an (verifiably purported) excellent actress who has the experience of having sex on film for the role of Shae. I think it's small-minded to believe that if a person has sex on film, that automatically bars them from having talent and appearing in "mainstream" film.

I, for one, champion more porn stars to show up in this show! Gianna Michaels would make a lovely tavern wench. ~_^

Precisely who I see when I envision a tavern wench, busty and just a little up to no good... :leer:

From imdb, somehow I doubt that only one of these titles is a porn. :P

But it certainly looks like she can do sexy/cute/innocent from what I've seen of her :blush:

and she'll be a perfect Shae.

I remember some talk about another actress replacing Sibel. What happened there? Do we know for sure Sibel did her scenes?

I believe that was just speculation by fans because there was talk of actors being replaced; the actual actor or actors who were replaced were the actor playing Illyrio and Roy Dotrice, who I think was playing Pycelle.

Just a funny FYI about some of those wire actors --

So my girl Snoop was still slingin' AFTER becoming a semi-celeb from her memorable role in "The Wire". I don't think the hbo execs will lose any sleep over a porn star and I actually think its pretty appropriate for Shae... she can channel that sexual energy for those scenes where her giant of lannister is chasing her through dragon skulls
