Nudity concerns

After portraying Daenerys Targaryen for almost a decade, Emilia Clarke is entering a new era. Although her ‘Game of Thrones’ character will continue to be iconic for years to come, her upcoming roles in films such as ‘Last Christmas’ and ‘Above Suspicion’ will certainly seek to brush off the Mother of Dragons.

Years ago, the actress was famously considered for another huge adaptation of a series of novels. Before Dakota Johnson took on Anastasia Steele in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’, Emilia Clarke had been in talks to join the franchise. As she moves forward in her career, the actress has got candid about why ‘Fifty Shades’ wasn’t the right move for her at the time.

In her words, “The last time that I was naked on camera on [‘Game of Thrones’] was a long time ago, and yet it is the only question that I ever get asked because I am a woman. And it’s annoying as hell and I’m sick and tired of it because I did it for the character — I didn’t do it so some guy could check out my tits, for God’s sake.”

The downside of playing a character as loved as Daenerys is it’s going to be tough for her to shake her off. It hasn’t helped that the ‘Game of Thrones’ character is quite well known for her nude scenes early on in the series. Clarke agreed to bare it all in service of Dany and the show, but it seems like it backfired a bit when it constantly became the center of conversation.
