Game of Thrones has gained a bit of a reputation for its sex scenes and depictions of nudity on screen – so much so that some critics even think they’re overdoing it now.
Emilia Clarke, however – who plays Daenerys Targaryen in the smash hit HBO show – thinks that GoT could actually do with more nudity – of the male variety.
Appearing on Conan on Thursday, Clarke discussed how she actually wants more male nudity on the show and all but created a hashtag movement with her calls on the show bosses to #FreethePenis.
Speaking about the inequality between male and female nudity on the show, Clarke said:
There’s plenty of female nudity, myself included, and I feel like… I think there should be a discussion so we should get some equal male nudity and female nudity.Advertisement
Last year, Clarke also called on the showrunners to make the sex scenes on the show more ‘subtle’, and she has also reportedly refused to take part in any more topless scenes herself because she ‘wanted to be known for her acting, not her breasts’.
In her appearance on Conan, Clarke also spoke about the time she accidentally crashed a Game of Thrones wedding.
That was probably especially awkward considering how weddings on GoT have ended in the past…
