It’s been more than 10 years since Game of Thrones premiered on HBO, and even so, actor Jason Momoa recently got a question about a scene depicting rape from the series while being interviewed by the New York Times. During the exchange, he was asked if he “thinks differently about those scenes today,” in reference to a season 1 scene in which his character, Khal Drogo, appears to rape Emilia Clarke’s character, Daenerys Targaryen.
