I’ve never understood the need for all the constant nudity on Game of Thrones. I’m certainly no prude. I enjoy porn and sexual plot lines like the rest of you. I just find HBO has a real hard on (pun intended) for making women strip down when it’s not necessary to the story.
Now Emilia Clark, Mother of Dragons, is speaking up about the pressures she faced on the GOT set and the one cast member who came to her aid.
“I’ve had fights on set before where I’m like, ‘No, the sheet stays up,'” she said on Dax Shepard ‘s podcast, “Armchair Expert, “And they’re like, ‘You don’t wanna disappoint your Game of Thrones fans.’ And I’m like, ‘F— you!”
The 33-year-old starlet stated Jason Momoa, who played her husband, Khal Drogo, in the first season, helped her learn how to express her boundaries. “I’ve never been on a film set like this before, I’d been on a film set twice before then, and I’m now on a film set completely naked with all of these people, and I don’t know what I’m meant to do,” she remembered. “Regardless of there being nudity or not, [without Momoa] I would have spent that first season thinking I’m not worthy of requiring anything; I’m not worthy of needing anything at all.” She remembered how much she enjoyed to do risqué scenes with him, “Because he was like, ‘No, sweetie, this isn’t okay.’ And I was like ‘Oh.’” The duo remains close even after the show ended.
God, I love Jason Momoa.
Emilia and Jason recently met up with Kitt Harrington and posted a photo on Instagram.
