For Khaleesi’s eyes only? Game of Thrones fans have long complained about the double standards between male and female nudity in the hit HBO fantasy series and star Emilia Clarke got candid about the discrepancies in the May Issue of Glamour magazine.
“I saw his member,” Clarke quipped of her co-star and on-screen husband, Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo). “But it was covered in a fluffy pink sock. Showing it would make people feel bad. It’s too fabulous.”
The 29-year-old actress doesn’t necessarily feel that the nudity is unfair on the show.
“I want 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,” she said of her other on-screen love.
And though the subject matter can be controversial, Clarke celebrates the fact that her show’s audience is made up of 40 percent women.
“I love that so many women watch the show. If you look at Game of Thrones on face value -- blood, t*ts, dragons, swearwords -- you’re like, ‘Oh, this must be for guys,’” she told the mag. “But if you take that away, the story lines are fascinating depictions of the struggle for power. And women are in on that conversation.”
Clarke also gave some of her own fan fiction suggestions for her character, saying, “I want to see Daenerys and her three dragons share the throne. Eat goat they’ve barbecued. And bring back all the pretty boys, get them to take their trousers down, and be like, ‘I’m now the queen of everything! I’d like close-ups of all the boys’ p**ises, please.’”
The British star’s latest role, as Louisa in the highly anticipated film adaptation of Me Before You is a departure from her confident mother of dragons persona on GOT.
“I’m very close to Lou as a person. At school I was uncertain and unsure,” she said. “So there was a sincerity that I was so desperate to play, because with Daenerys I’ve spent a career putting armor on.”
