On Monday, Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to discuss Clarke’s roll as the famed Khaleesi in the hit series, which of course leads to nudity and the like. According to Kimmel, Clarke was naked through the “first half of the first” season, and the two had a chat about nudity onscreen and how the young actress broke the big news to her parents, as well as what we can expect from Season 3.
Apparently, the nudity news was much easier to get across to her parents than one might think. The trick is to have to have a system in place before you get the news across.
“It was the kind of thing that I told my mum and then my mum kind of told my dad… with me being nowhere near.”
Clarke does have a cautionary tale, however. If a person chooses to go into acting and then chooses to move forward with a role that will require nudity, that person needs to explain the nudity to more than his or her parents before the show airs. Clarke’s Uncle Ken didn’t get the memo, and as you can guess, it was a bit of a mini-fiasco.
“My Uncle Ken, he’s from Yorkshire, and it was over Christmas, but he was kind of alarmed, I think, when he saw it... He sort of looked me dead in the eye, and was like ‘Emilia, you didn’t tell me! You didn’t tell me that you’d be naked for that long.’”
If you are looking forward to more nudity in Season 3, Clarke also hints there is a likelihood she’ll be bare onscreen, again. So, if you happen to be that weirdo that mostly looks forward to the nudity in HBO’s fantasy drama, you'll be in luck. If you are looking for a teaser with more than the promise of nudity, however, you can check out some new characters and the warfare Season 3 will also present to viewers.
Game of Thrones premieres Sunday, March 31, 2013 on HBO.
