23 years. This is how old Emilia Clarke is when she accepts the role of Daenerys Targaryen. A beautiful showcase for a young actress just out of school. Only downside: the actress did not know that she was going to appear naked on the screen. Almost four years after the end of Game Of Thronesthe mother of dragons entrusts the DailyMail that she was in tears before every sex scene: “I was terrified, I had never been on a film set before and suddenly I had to undress in front of all these people.”
The one who is now 36 years old felt lost: “I didn’t know what I was supposed to do, what was expected of me, what they wanted, or even what I wanted“Professional and inexperienced, she decides to shoot the scenes without flinching.”Regardless of whether there’s nudity or not, I spent the first season thinking I wasn’t worthy to demand anything.. If it’s in the script, it’s necessary.”
Jason Momoa, gentleman
In the first episodes of the series, Emilia Clarke has to shoot several daring passages with Jason Momoa, alias Khal Drogo, her on-screen husband. In one of the most memorable scenes of season 1, his character rapes the young bride on their wedding night. A difficult sequence to shoot for the two actors: “He cried more than me. Only now do I realize how lucky I was, because it could have taken many, many different paths.“
She thanks her partner for making it as easy as possible for her to shoot: “He was always going, ‘Can we get him a f*****g bathrobe? She’s shivering!’ He was so kind and caring and cared about me as a human being.“What a gentleman this Aquaman!
