ReFramed Episode 3 - Genevieve Clay-Smith - 'Game of Thrones' + 'Me Before You'
September 28, 2021
You're up to the third episode of 'ReFramed - Disability in Media'!
In this episode, Jason & Steph catch up with Genevieve Clay-Smith and discuss 2 very important pieces of media:
- Game of Thrones... do we really need to explain this one? Based on the novels by George R R Martin, the crew dive into conversation around 2 main characters with disability - Tyrion Lannister & Bran Stark. And yes, there's spoilers! Queen in the North!
- Me Before You... in Jason's own words, this one is an absolute "bin fire". Based on a novel of the same name by Jojo Moyes, it follows a young man with disability (played by the ridiculously handsome but NON-DISABLED actor, Sam Claflin) as he meets the love of his life, and then chooses to die by assisted suicide anyway. Seriously, what is with our culture of celebrating terribly ableist books and turning them into Hollywood films with huge star power!?
