‘Game of Thrones’ Star Emilia Clarke Defends Her Racy Nude Scenes: ‘It’s A Part Of Life’


Emilia Isabelle Euphemia Rose Clarke (born 23 October 1986)is an English actress. Born in London and brought up in Berkshire, Clarke first gained an interest in acting as a child after seeing the musical Show Boat, on which her father was working as a sound engineer. Clarke studied at the Drama Centre London, and appeared in a number of stage productions. Her television debut came with a guest appearance in an episode of the British soap opera Doctors. In 2010, she was named as one of the UK Stars of Tomorrow by Screen International magazine for her role in Syfy’s film Triassic Attack (2010).

The Mother of Dragons isn’t interested in what critics have to say about her sex scenes.

Emilia Clarke, who stars as the platinum-hued Daenerys Targaryen in HBO’s hit fantasy drama “Game of Thrones,” has no qualms about going nude or even filming a raunchy moment for the show. In fact, the British actress can’t understand why it’s such a big deal for everyone else.

“I’m starting to get really annoyed about this stuff now because people say, ‘Oh, yeah, all the porn sites went down when ‘Game of Thrones’ came back on… There are so many shows centered around this very true fact that people reproduce,” the 31-year-old told Harper’s BAZAAR for its December/January 2018 issue.


“People fuck for pleasure – it’s a part of life,” Clarke added.

The star’s confidence to bare it all in front of cameras may come from overcoming her early years in Hollywood when she did questioned her talent as an actress.

“I think in the early days I second-guessed everyone,” Clarke admitted. “I mean, I do that in life anyway, but especially with fame and [becoming] successful, and strangers knowing you more than your circle of friends, I would worry about what people thought of me. Then you get to a point where you’re like, ‘You know what? I’m okay.’”

Clarke insisted she didn’t possess the “right look” as a typical star, which only motivated her to pursue challenging characters who aren’t afraid to raise some eyebrows along the way.

“It pushed me into another casting type; forced me to be an actor,” explained Clarke. “Instead of playing Juliet and doing the light, airy stuff, I would be the granny who cracks wise, or a down-and-out hooker who has seen better days.”

And so far, it’s working. Since “Game of Thrones” premiered in 2011, she’s on her way to participating in movies that further ensure her status as an A-lister. Her next role is that of Kira in “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” which is set to premiere in 2018.

It’s no wonder Clarke isn’t in a hurry to fine “the one.”

“There is ‘the one’ for particular parts of your life – you change as you get older,” said Clarke. “So when I was in my teens, there was ‘the one’ for my teens, for sure, and then, you know, there’s ‘the one’ for the next time of your life.

There’s this Buddhist philosophy that says you can only really understand yourself through your interactions with other people.”
