Jennifer Jensen, 23, will be one of the many naked people in Season 4 of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Unlike at Jensen’s regular day job, however, during her appearance on Game of Thrones more than 6 million people will see her naked. Jensen is a popular British porn star and her casting in the new season of the hit show is making a buzz on the web.
Here is what you need to know:
1. Jensen Will Play a Prostitute in an Upcoming Episode
Jessica Jensen is slated for a small, but-as-of-yet unknown, role in Season 4.
According to the Game of Thrones wiki, Jessica Jensen was also involved in the filming of Game of Thrones Season 3, working as an extra on set. Although Jensen was not allowed to discuss the specifics of her role, the Mirror quotes her as saying, “Game of Thrones was nothing like I’m used to. But I got on with the job. It was exciting rubbing shoulders with the cast. Everyone was really nice.”
Above you can hear an interview with Jensen about her career, though warning, the things discussed are NSFW.
She Won the ‘Best Newcomer Porn Award’ in 2012
Jensen has only been working in the adult industry since 2009 but has already made an impression. Since she began she’s already shot videos for over 10 adult entertainment companies, including Playboy, and has won a number of awards. In 2012 she was given the Best Newcomer Porn Award at the UK Adult Producers Awards.
3. Samantha Bentley Was Also Cast for a Season 4 Appearance
Samantha Bentley, 26, is another acclaimed English porn actress, winning a prestigious AVN award for “Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene” in 2013, and winning a United Kingdom Adult Performer Best Female Performer of the Year award also in 2013.

4. They’re Not the First Adult Entertainers on ‘GoT’
These two are not the first current or former adult entertainers to find themselves in the brothels of Westeros. Armeca, a prostitute character who reappeared often in seasons 1 and 2, was played by Indian adult actress Sahara Knite. Also, the actress who plays the supporting, yet important, role as prostitute Shae, Sibel Kekilli, once made adult films before her acting career took off in 2004.
5. ‘GoT’ Has Been Criticized for Its Nudity
The perpetual use of nudity in Game of Thrones has been a source for both satire and serious critique, with some arguing there should be less, and others arguing there should be more male nudity. Even the show’s male star Kit Harington believes it’s “only right” to show as much male nudity as there is female nudity.
