That ain't no body double'. Daenerys Targaryen added another spectacular feat to her legendary history on Sunday night's Game of Thrones. She not only escaped her Dothraki captors, but also brought the house down — literally — with an epic fire-goddess scene that reminded everyone the Mother of Dragons is not to be trifled with. While fans have assumed Dany would somehow eventually escape her confinement at Vaes Dothrak, the most common prediction was that Ser Jorah and Daario Naharis would simply smuggle her out, or that Drogon would swoop down to torch her enemies like at the end of season 5. But showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss concocted a far more clever, shocking, and character-driven twist.

Emilia Clarke says she was pressured to do nude scenes to please 'Game of Thrones' fans
That was awhile ago. But this is all me, all proud, all strong. Every season I get at least one spine-chilling moment. She now wants to make it clear that isn't the case:. So I feel now, with the beauty of Instagram I should clarify my statements, if for nothing else than for posterity. After last nights GameOfThrones emiliaclarke has cemented herself into the no.
Emilia Clarke speaks about shooting 'terrifying' nude scenes in Game Of Thrones
Speaking to Dax Shepard for his Armchair Expert podcast this week, Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke pulled the curtain back on what filming nude scenes as Daenerys Targaryen for the show was actually like—especially in the first season, when nudity was a main attraction. But she "came to terms with that" before arriving on the set. As a newcomer in the industry and recent drama school graduate, Clarke said she didn't feel she was in the place to make complaints or demands. Clarke found comfort in filming with costar and on-screen husband Jason Momoa Khal Drogo , who had more experience on film sets and taught her how she should or shouldn't be treated. Years after GoT 's first season in , Clarke said the way nudity is approached on sets now is "very, very, very, different" and that she's "a lot more savvy" about expressing what she's comfortable with doing on camera.
Worse were the frequent scenes of sexual violence, which served little to no purpose in furthering the plot — despite showrunners insisting that they did. Emilia Clarke , who starred as Daenerys Targaryen in all eight seasons of the hit HBO show, recently spoke about those early scenes, revealing that she had no idea nudity would be required of her until after she had signed on for the role. It is a little sad, though, that she felt her lack of experience was the culprit in those early days. The guidelines advise a ban on full nudity in any audition and no semi-nudity in first auditions. Performers can feel as though they have no choice but to do things that make them feel uncomfortable.
