Many of the fans may have remembered the role of Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen on the Game of Thrones. The show aired in 2017 had more nude scenes as expected, and she has even defended them from the critics regarding the number of sex scenes.
Clarke was recently interviewed by Dax Shepard from Armchair Expert.
The actress spoke about the nude scenes she did from the Game of Thrones.
According to her revelations, Clarke was pressured to do the nude scenes.
“I’m a lot savvier with what I’m comfortable with, and what I am okay with doing.”
“I’ve had fights onset before where I’m like, ‘No, the sheet stays up,’ and they’re like, ‘You don’t want to disappoint your Game of Thrones fans.’ And I’m like, ‘F—k you,'” she added.
“I’d come fresh from drama school, and I approached [it] as a job – if it’s in the script, then it’s clearly needed, this is what this is, and I’m gonna make sense of it […] Everything’s gonna be cool.”
One of the reasons why she was accepting those “f—k ton of nudity” during Season 1 was because of her less experience in acting.
“I’m floating through this first season. I have no idea what I’m doing; I have no idea what any of this is,” she claimed.
“I’ve never been on a film set like this before — I’d been on a film set twice before then. I’m now on a film set completely naked with all of these people. And I don’t know what I’m meant to do. I don’t know what’s expected of me. And I don’t know what you want, and I don’t know what I want. Regardless of there being nudity or not, I would have spent that first season thinking I’m not worthy of requiring anything; I’m not worthy of needing anything at all.”
Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa’s Friendship
Emilia Clarke owes some gratefulness to her costar Jason Momoa whose character was the husband of Daenery, Khal Drogo. He took care of her at times when she didn’t even know she had to be taken care of.
She elaborated, “Jason had experience — he was an experienced actor who had done a bunch of stuff before coming on to… He was like, ‘Sweetie, this is how it’s meant to be, and this is how it’s not meant to be, and I’m going to make sure that that’s the f—king case.’ [he] was always like, ‘Can we get our f*cking robe? Can we get our goddamn robe? She’s shivering.”
Fans of the Game of Thrones would have been familiar with her nudity scenes.
Emilia Clarke was only 24 years old when she became a GOT actress.
She has learned a lot from those old days. She is still fortunate because, according to her, that could have gone in many, many, many different ways.
