Emilia Clarke Defends The Sex And Nudity In The Show

That is all sex and nudity. (It's amusing how the male actors on the show are rarely ask about their nudity.) At the end of the day, she's an actress doing her job-and if she's comfortable, that's all that matters.

Emilia Clarke covers the December/January issue of Harper's BAZAAR, looking handsome as usual in a bunch of floral gowns I would very much like to own and talking about - what else?

In a new interview with Harper's BAZAAR UK, the British actress said she's had it up to here with people bringing up the nudity. That is all sex and nudity. Many viewers say that porn has lost its popularity after it started to show "Game of thrones".

"People f-k for pleasure - it's a part of life", Clarke added.

Clarke's comments raise two salient points.

The Game Of Thrones star gave the ideal answer when she was ONCE AGAIN asked about those who've criticized the excessive amount of nudity on the HBO hit. Over the years, Western culture has become increasingly more tolerant in how sexuality is portrayed in the media and there will likely always be a vocal minority that wish to halt that progression and retain the status quo. Since "Game of Thrones" premiered in 2011, she's on her way to participating in movies that further ensure her status as an A-lister. We don't even see a consensual sex scene until episode 5, part of which is shaped by its nudity instead of the more clinical "ceremonies" we're shown on multiple occasions. Dany emerged from the flames unscathed as everyone else perished. Likewise, it would seem very odd indeed if a scene set in one of Littlefinger's brothels didn't feature patrons in the buff.

GoT is infamous for its gratuitous-and sometimes problematic-sex.

HBO has confirmed to Gold Derby that while Clarke and Harington are jumping up to the lead races at the 2018 Golden Globes, all of the other "Game of Thrones" performers will be submitted in the supporting categories.
