Even Emilia Clarke, 29, gets nervous! The actress, who plays Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones, confessed that she just had to drink some vodka before that pivotal nude scene. Funny thing is, the alcohol was left in her dressing room by the show’s creators!
“All I needed was vodka and some flattering lighting and I was ready,” she told The Sun. That’s all, Emilia? The girl doesn’t ask for much!
The alcohol was conveniently left in her dressing room by the Game of Thrones creators. After taking a few swigs, she felt comfortable enough to take everything off for Daenerys’ big season 6 moment. Even though she was nervous, Emilia had no problem stripping down.
“It was just a wonderful, strong moment I wanted to own, a real empowering, girl-power wow scene,” she continued. “I was so thrilled with it. It’s not a sexy scene, she’s not naked for no reason, it’s not gratuitous. She’s naked because she’s just destroyed her enemies in this almighty blaze after they underestimated her.”
After the nude scene, Emilia make sure everyone knew that she did NOT use a body double. Emilia doesn’t take off her clothes for no reason. The moment had to be big for her to be naked onscreen, HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY.
“If she was always naked, then that scene wouldn’t have had the same cache,” a source told us. “She took a stand on the amount of nudity in the show that she wanted to do, and is glad that her beliefs are now working out to her advantage and the show’s advantage. She is happy how everything turned out.”
