“Game of Thrones” has a bit of a reputation for using gratuitous sex scenes. Earlier this week Emilia Clarke was asked about her opinion on the sex scenes and she was quoted as saying she “can’t stand” them. According to Clarke that quote was taken out of context.
Emilia Clarke took to Instagram to clarify her thoughts on the “Game of Thrones” sex scenes and you can see what she had to say below.
“I was followed into a party by a journalist who asked me a question about female empowerment and then quoted me entirely out of context for an outlet I didn’t agree to speak with. So I feel now, with the beauty of Instagram, I should clarify my statements, if for nothing else than for posterity. 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. If it’s gratuitous for gratuitous sake, then I will discuss with a director on how to make it more subtle. In either case, like a good Mother of Dragons, I’m always in control. #dracarys #bodiesmaybetemplesbutmindsarewhatmatter #MODforreal”
