Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke Reveals She Was Told to Do Nude Scenes

'It was definitely hard'

 

Emilia Clarke was no stranger to a nude scene during her time as Daenerys Targaryen on Games Of Thrones.

 

But despite what people may think, stripping naked wasn't exactly the easiest of tasks for the actress.

 

The British star, 33, has since revealed she felt pressured to film nude scenes on the hit HBO show, and isn't prepared to do it again.

 

Her on-screen character, known as the Mother of Dragons, appeared in a handful of sex scenes throughout the series, which often led to "fights on set."

 

“Season one was was a f**k tonne of nudity. I’m a lot more savvy [now] with what I’m comfortable with, and what I am okay with doing," she admitted to Dax Shepard on his Armchair Expert podcast.

 

"I’ve had fights on set before where I’m like, 'No, the sheet stays up', and they’re like, "'You don’t wanna disappoint your Game of Thrones fans'. And I’m like, 'F*** you.'"

 

Co-star Jason Momoa, who played her on screen love interest, encouraged her to speak up when the scenes got a little too much. "It was definitely hard," she added. "Which is why the scenes, when I got to do them with Jason, were wonderful, because he was like, 'No, sweetie, this isn't OK.' And I was like, 'Ohhhh.'"

 

And if filming the steamy scenes in front of a whole crew wasn't embarrassing enough, Emilia also had the problem of her own brother being a cameraman on the show.

 

She revealed on the Jimmy Kimmel Show back in May: “He's in the camera department, which is brilliant, it's amazing, it's really nice.

 

“Yeah, so there are some days where he's like, 'Oh, I'll swing by', because he's in the next unit that's filming next door and I'll go, 'No it's good. I'm good, you can stay there.

 

“He's like, 'I just want to say hi, I haven't seen you in ages', and I'm like, 'No!’”

 

Talk about awkward.
