Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa played on-screen couple Khaleesi and Khal Drogo once upon a time in Game of Thrones. Because their role as a couple involved intimate scenes, the two had to be nude in front of each other. As it turns out, Clarke really loved the nudity going on the set of the hit HBO series.
In a new interview with Glamour, the 29-year-old actress spoke candidly about having to go nude with Momoa in the show. The Mother of Dragons revealed:
I saw his member, but it was covered in a pink fluffy sock. Showing it would make people feel bad. It's too fabulous.
The actress also revealed how she liked seeing another co-star's nude body up close:
I'd like to bring your memory back to Mr. Michiel Huisman [who plays Daenerys' bedmate Daario Naharis] and I copulating for the first time which began with me saying, ‘Take off your clothes,' and then you got to see his perfect bottom.
In fact, if only the Mother of Dragons was the showrunner of Game of Thrones, Clarke would apparently be encouraging more male nudity into the series. She said in the interview:
I want to see Daenerys and her three dragons share the throne. And bring back all the pretty boys, get them to take their trousers down, and be like, ‘I'm now the queen of everything! I'd like close-ups of all the boys' penises, please.'
Alright, the actress may be kidding with that comment, but it isn't the first time Clarke had expressed open views that she had about the show in general. Late last month, the Me Before You star told EW how she thought the show isn't anti-feminist:
There's so much controversy. Yet that's what's beautiful about Game of Thrones – it's depiction of women in so many different stages of development. There are women depicted as sexual tools, women who have zero rights, women who are queens but only to a man, and then there are women who are literally unstoppable and as powerful as you can possibly imagine.
So it pains me to hear people taking Thrones out of context with anti-feminist spin – because you can't do that about this show. It shows the range that happens to women, and ultimately shows women are not only equal, but have a lot of strength.
The show has been criticized many times, most especially for its depiction of women and it's quite refreshing to see an actress speaking so candidly about the issue, as well as the nudity involved in the show.
