Picture the scene – you’re an actress who signed a no-nudity clause, but you’re appearing in one of television’s most nudey shows, and you have to do a naked scene… How do you do it? Vodka, apparently.
And that’s exactly what Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke did, as she revealed that she had no problem stripping off for the hit TV series – after a quick drink and a bit of technical help.
Known as Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO/Sky Atlantic epic, Emilia recalled, ‘All I needed was vodka and some flattering lighting and I was ready’, reports The Sun.
And it certainly went down a treat with the fans who were left thoroughly shocked by the full frontal nudity scene which seemed to come from absolutely nowhere.
Emilia also insisted that the drastic change in opinion was ’empowering’ for her, especially when Daenerys — the Mother of Dragons — walked through an inferno to emerge naked.
It was just a wonderful, strong moment I wanted to own, a real empowering, girl-power wow scene.
I was so thrilled with it. It’s not a sexy scene, she’s not naked for no reason, it’s not gratuitous. She’s naked because she’s just destroyed her enemies in this almighty blaze after they underestimated her.
In the past, Emilia has kicked off about the topic of nudity, and when fellow GoT star, Oona Chaplin, said that she refused to take off her clothes in the show, she responded heavily saying, ‘I wan’t to be known for my acting, not my breasts’.
I guess things change…
