British actress, Emilia Clarke who featured as Daenerys Targaryen in the popular HBO series, “Game of Thrones” has come out to reveal a stunning statement about the producers of the show.
Clarke, who stripped and acted sex scenes as Khaleesi in the first episodes of the Tv show, revealed that she was pressured by the producers to perform several nude scenes since, according to her bosses, she would disappoint her fans if she fails to do them.
She added that she had to depend on alcohol to act the scenes.
Her words, “I’m a lot more savvy [now] with what I’m comfortable with, and what I am okay with doing.”
“I’ve had fights on set before where I’m like, “No, the sheet stays up”, and they’re like, “You don’t wanna disappoint your Game of Thrones fans”. And I’m like, “F**k you”.
“I took the job and then they sent me the scripts and I was reading them, and I was, like, “Oh, there’s the catch!”
But I’d come fresh from drama school, and I approached [it] as a job – if it’s in the script then it’s clearly needed, this is what this is and I’m gonna make sense of it. Everything’s gonna be cool.’
So I came to terms with that beforehand, but then going in and doing it… I’m floating through this first season and I have no idea what I’m doing, I have no idea what any of this is.
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 and I don’t know what’s expected of me, and I don’t know what you want and I don’t know what I want.”
“Regardless of there being nudity or not, I would have spent that first season thinking I’m not worthy of requiring anything, I’m not worthy of needing anything at all…
‘Whatever I’m feeling is wrong, I’m gonna cry in the bathroom and then I’m gonna come back and we’re gonna do the scene and it’s gonna be completely fine.
“No, I don’t know why. But I’d like to bring your memory back to Mr. Michiel Huisman 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.”
“I love that so many women watch the show. If you look at ‘Game of Thrones’ on face value — blood, t**s, dragons, swearwords — you’re like, “Oh, this must be for guys”.’
“But if you take that away, the story lines are fascinating depictions of the struggle for power. And women are in on that conversation.’
On Khal Drogo, “Oh, I did. I saw his member, But it was covered in a pink fluffy sock. Showing it would make people feel bad. It’s too fabulous.”
