Emilia Clarke described her Game of Thrones sex scenes as “terrifying,” especially when one of her relatives was present. Not a fictional relative, either (with Game of Thrones, you never know), but an actual family member.
Clarke, who plays Daenerys on the HBO series, commented on her first sex scene with Kit Harington while attending the TJH Superhero Car Show & Comic Con over the weekend.
“I do remember the day, our sex scene day, and my brother was there,” she said. “That day, my brother was on site in the camera department. ‘Mate!’ it was literally spoken. You must get him out of here. He is not permitted to be here!'”
You know how they say you should never date a co-worker? You should also never have your brother as your co-worker on the “tits and dragons” show.
While Game of Thrones was still on, Clarke shared her thoughts on sex scenes in media. “In drama, if a nude scene forwards a story or is shot in a way that adds insight into characters, I’m perfectly fine with it. Sometimes explicit scenes are required and make sense for the characters/story, as they do in Westeros,” she wrote on Instagram. “If it’s gratuitous for gratuitous sake, then I will discuss with a director on how to make it more subtle.”
