Emilia Clarke has opened up about the pressure she faced when it came to her nude scenes early on in her film career.
Clarke’s first naked scene saw her walk into a luxe bath tub baring almost everything.
She recounted some tense encounters where she was being guilt-tripped: “I’m a lot more savvy (now) with what I’m comfortable with, and what I am okay with doing,” she explained.
“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*** you.'”
Talking to Dax Shepherd on his podcast Armchair Expert she explained: “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,” she went on.
