The Mother of Dragons, Emilia Clarke, has spoken about stripping naked for Game of Thrones and why she won’t do it again anytime soon.
Emilia Clarke has confirmed that she doesn’t want to sign onto another franchise at the moment, including any that involve her getting naked.
She broke into the world of Hollywood and became known for stripping on television when in actual fact, she has only shown her boobs for a role a handful of times throughout her career.
During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she said, “One thing I would not like to do is something that would have a sequel. Something that could have, like, ‘And then two and then three and then four.’ I’d like to not do one of those for a minute.”
A lesser known fact about Emilia is she turned down a role in Fifty Shades of Grey but did however perform on stage in Breakfast at Tiffany’s in which she once again, took her clothes off. She wants to make it clear, now, why she did it, “Well, Sam [Taylor-Johnson, the director] is a magician. I love her, and I thought her vision was beautiful. But the last time that I was naked on camera on [Game of Thrones] was a long time ago, and yet it is the only question that I ever get asked because I am a woman.
And it’s annoying as hell and I’m sick and tired of it because I did it for the character — I didn’t do it so some guy could check out my tits, for God’s sake.”
She continued to finalise her thoughts on people constantly asking her about that time she stripped on camera, “So, that coming up, I was like, ‘I can’t.’ I did a minimal amount and I’m pigeonholed for life, so me saying yes to that, where the entire thing is about sensuality and sex and being naked and all of that stuff, I was just like, “No way am I going to voluntarily walk into that situation and then never be able to look someone in the eye and be like, ‘No, you can’t keep asking me this question.’”
In summary, she wants people to not necessarily forget about those types of scenes, but to look at them as she did — a form of art and passion for a writers dream.
