Despite filming explicit scenes in 'GOT', the actress admits that she is not comfortable filming similar scenes in another projects-a fact that many filmmakers don't seem to get.
They say in showbiz, it's easy to get typecast. And when a particular role in a film/series works, actors tend to only get offered similar such roles. Actress Emilia Clarke, who is best known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen in the hit show 'Game Of Thrones' seems to have been a victim of similar stereotypes.
The show had Clarke filming several nude scenes. While the show has gotten over, it seems several filmmakers and series creators are unable to imagine Clarke in any other kind of roles.
Clarke recently revealed that several producers have asked her to film similar nude scenes in other projects. One even suggested she would be letting 'Thrones' fans down if she didn't bare it all.
"I'm a lot more savvy about what I'm comfortable with, and what I am okay with doing," Clarke said on a recent episode of Dax Shepard's 'Armchair Expert' podcast. "I've had fights on set before where I'm like, 'No, sheet stays up,' and they're like, 'You don't wanna disappoint your Game of Thrones fans.' And I'm like, 'F*** you.'"
"I feel like I've seen enough now to know what's actually needed," she added.
Clarke admitted that she had initially agreed to nudity on 'GOT' because she was an inexperienced 23-year-old actress fresh out of drama school.
"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," she said. "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."
Clarke, though, appreciated co-star Jason Mamoa (who played her husband Khal Drogo) for being protective of her on the set and teaching her to set boundaries for herself.
" "He took care of me too, in an environment where I didn't know I needed to be taken care of," Clarke said. "He was an experienced actor who had done a bunch of stuff before coming onto this. He was like, 'Sweetie, this is how it's meant to be and this is how it's not meant to be and I'm going to make sure that that's the f***ing case.' So he was always like, 'Can we get her a f***ing robe?"
