Anything is possible on “Game of Thrones,” but fans probably won't see another sex scene with Daenerys. Actress Emilia Clarke said she generally dislikes graphic sequences.
“Sex scenes should be more subtle,” Clarke told the Daily Mail. “I’m British, so I cringe at that sort of thing anyway — I can’t stand it.”
Clarke was involved in some very explicit scenes in “Game of Thrones” Season 1. Her character, Daenerys Targaryen, was raped by her husband Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa) at the beginning of the season, and the two went on to have several sex scenes together. However, despite taking Daario (Michiel Huisman) as her lover, she didn't have many love scenes throughout Season 5. Clarke is rumored to have refused appear in future gratuitous love scenes.
While the actress never mentioned “GoT” specifically, she generally slammed the overuse of nudity and sex scenes. “Most sex scenes you see in films or on TV are gratuitous and they’re usually just to attract an audience,” she explained.
However, the star hasn’t completely stopped appearing nude. She also took off her clothes on Broadway when she starred in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” in 2013, and then again this summer when she starred in “Terminator: Geneisys.” Clarke explained that no one could see much in her latest movie, due to the PG-13 rating.
“I double-checked the age-rating and was like, ‘Okay, we're good, there's only so much you can see.’ … Nude harness time travel, it's an interesting one to add to the CV,” she told the Belfast Telegraph. “You've just got to have a sense of humor and laugh. Loudly.”
Even without sex scenes, “Game of Thrones” will still have an interesting storyline for Daenerys in Season 6. “It’s just go, go, go, go,” Clarke told the Los Angeles Times of the 2016 epsiodes. “Shocking moment to shocking moment. Epic moment to epic moment. It’s mental; it’s epic. And definitely Dany’s a part of it.”
“Game of Thrones” returns to HBO in 2016.
