Emilia Clarke ‘Genuinely Happy’ She Did Topless ‘Game Of Thrones’ Scene
Warning: Spoilers and NSFW images below.
Viewers were treated to an eyeful during Sunday night’s episode of “Game of Thrones.”
Daenerys Targaryen — played by 29-year-old Emilia Clarke — shed her clothes and went fully nude on camera after she set fire to a Khal Moro and several of his bloodriders during the fourth episode of the sixth season.
It’s no wonder why the Dothraki immediately kneeled at her feet. (RELATED: That Wasn’t Lena Headey’s Body During Cersei’s Naked Walk Of Shame On ‘Game Of Thrones’)
Clarke proudly confirmed that a body double was not used for the scene.
“I’d like to remind people the last time I took my clothes off was season 3,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “That was awhile ago. It’s now season 6. But this is all me, all proud, all strong.”
“I’m just feeling genuinely happy I said ‘Yes.’ That ain’t no body double!”
During an interview in September, Clarke said that she no longer wanted to film sex scenes for the show and vowed to only appear topless on camera from now on.
“I’m British, so I cringe at that sort of thing anyway — I can’t stand it,” Clarke told the Daily Mail. “I don’t want to have sex thrown in my face.” (RELATED: People Would Rather Watch ‘Game Of Thrones’ Nudity Than Porn)
“I’ve always thought the suggestion is so much more titillating than the act itself. Most sex scenes you see in films or on TV are gratuitous and they’re usually just to attract an audience.”
“On screen, the subtler the better.” (RELATED: Emilia Clarke Hates The Nude Scenes In ‘Game Of Thrones’)
