Emilia Clarke Didn't Have a Body Double for Her Naked Game of Thrones Scene
When scenes call for nudity, it's not uncommon for actors to use body doubles rather than going full buff for all the world to see.
Emilia Clarke is not one of those actors. The actress sent Game of Thrones fans into a frenzy Sunday night when her character, Daenerys Targaryen, escaped from the Dothraki leaders by setting their hut on fire, trapping them inside with her and emerging from it alone, completely nude and unburnt.
The nude body GOT fans saw on screen was actually Clarke's—not a body double—and she's fine if everyone knows it. Clarke told Entertainment Weekly, "I'd like to remind people the last time I took my clothes off was season 3. That was awhile ago. It's now season 6. But this is all me, all proud, all strong. I'm just feeling genuinely happy I said 'Yes.' That ain't no body double!"
While she went fully nude, production made sure to take extra precautions as they shot the Dothraki murder scene. Clarke's portion of it took place on a private closed set in Belfast, while the rest of it was shot in the desert in Spain.
"Taking off my clothes is not the easiest thing," she said, adding it helps that "I'm in control of it."
