Los Angeles, May 30 (IANS) Actress Emilia Clarke says she needed “vodka and some flattering lighting” to film nude scenes in the popular TV series “Game of Thrones”.
The 29-year-old, who stars as Daenerys Targaryen in the show, says she needed a little help and encouragement before she agreed to strip off for “Game of Thrones”, reports dailymail.co.uk.
“All I needed was vodka and some flattering lighting and I was ready,” Clarke told The Sun newspaper.
Clarke, who had previously signed a no-nudity clause, said she found one particular nude scene to be “empowering”, when her on-screen character Daenerys walked through an inferno to emerge naked.
“It was just a wonderful, strong moment I wanted to own, a real empowering, girl-power wow scene.
“I was so thrilled with it. It’s not a sexy scene, she’s not naked for no reason, it’s not gratuitous. She’s naked because she’s just destroyed her enemies in this almighty blaze after they underestimated her,” she said.
