Emilia Clarke on Last Night’s Big ‘Game of Thrones’ Nude Scene
“That ain’t no body double
Emilia Clarke, aka Daenerys Targaryen, set the Internet aflame after her epic finale in last night’s episode of Game of Thrones. Her character, trapped among the Dothraki, breaks free in a powerful scene in which she burns her captors alive. Daenerys, who previously showed her fireproof abilities in season 1, triumphantly emerges from the burning temple nude and unscathed.
“I’d like to remind people the last time I took my clothes off was season 3,” Emilia tells 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!”
“Taking off my clothes is not the easiest thing, but with the magic of the effects, I don’t have to do a season 1 and go on a cliff and do it,” Emilia says of filming the scene on a closed set in Belfast this time around, “I’m in control of it.”
