Emilia Clarke pressured on 'Terrifying' Nude Scenes, to Please 'Game of Thrones' Fans

As a recent guest on Dax Shepard's Armchair Expert podcast, "Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke spoke about her experience filming intimate scenes on the HBO show and the pressure she sometimes felt to participate in onscreen nudity.

When asked by Shepard if performing nude scenes is "terrifying," Clarke agreed. Shepard then described some of Clarke's early scenes as "virtually rape scenes" that are very aggressive. The actress is quick to mention that fellow "GoT" actor Jason Momoa was helpful in guiding her on set. "He took care of me, he really did. In an environment where I didn't know I needed to be taken care of." She went on to say: "He was so kind and considerate and cared about me as a human being."

While the actress said she is "a lot savvier" with indicating what she is and isn't comfortable doing, she explained that there was pressure to perform a certain way for fans. "I've had fights on set before where I'm like, 'No, the sheet stays up,' and they're like, 'No, you don't wanna disappoint your 'Game of Thrones fans'.' And I'm like, 'Fuck you.'"
