House of the Dragon may be moving away from Game of Thrones' uncompromising portrayal of sexual violence, but there are still certain tricky scenes in the upcoming spin-off.

Miguel Sapochnik, showrunner, executive producer, and director of House of the Dragon, has revealed that there is one "quite taxing" moment in the new series that was difficult to film.

We suspect that touch is also important to keep an eye on.

Sapochnik explained to Metro.co.uk that five children aged 9 to 12 had to mute one another in a ruthless game.

The House of the Dragon's CEO claimed that one of the children "stabs another." "It was quite, quite demanding," he continued.

Miguel also revealed how the prequel series would differ from Game of Thrones in a slightly less depressing update, stating that there will be "more nuance."

"Game of Thrones was about tens of thousands of different families on many different continents," he added. "This one is about one family kind of in one place fighting against each other. It gives us more time to spend with less characters."

"There are quite a few, but... I think you gain more nuance."

When House of the Dragon is released in a few days, you'll get to experience that detail. The new series, which stars Matt Smith, Paddy Considine, Emma D'Arcy, Olivia Cooke, and Rhys Ifans, begins 200 years before Thrones' events.

House of the Dragon will air on HBO on August 21 in the United States, and on August 22 in the United Kingdom, via Sky Atlantic and NOW. Seasons 1-8 of Game of Thrones are available on DVD and Blu-ray.
