Since the very first episode, Game Of Thrones has developed a bit of a reputation for its rather bold approach to nudity — it's all "tits and dragons" as new cast member Ian McShane put it oh so succinctly earlier this month. The show isn't what you'd call "shy," and apparently Emilia Clarke isn't either.
As if we weren't jealous enough that Clarke got to star opposite Jason Momoa in the first place, now we know that she also had the privilege of a front seat before Khal Drogo’s, well, personal khalasar — if you know what I mean. The British actress, who is known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen, was asked why, in a show so fond of female nudity, "we never saw Khal Drogo's dong."
She told Glamour magazine:
"Oh, I did. I saw his member, but it was covered in a pink fluffy sock. Showing it would make people feel bad. It’s too fabulous."
It wouldn't make us feel bad, honest! She was quick to remind us, however, that the show has provided its fair share of male action over the series too. She continued:
"I’d like to bring your memory back to Mr. Michiel Huisman [Daario Naharis] and I copulating for the first time, which began with me saying, “Take off your clothes,” and then you got to see his perfect bottom."
Okay, we'll admit: that was certainly something, but was it enough? It turns out if Clarke had her way, there would be many more manhoods flying around the Seven Kingdoms. She finished up the interview by saying:
"I want to see Daenerys and her three dragons share the throne, and bring back all the pretty boys, get them to take their trousers down, and be like, ‘I’m now the queen of everything! I’d like close-ups of all the boys’ penises, please.’"
Is that a little Targaryen fire we see in Miss Clarke?! Mother of Dragons, indeed! But we can't say we disagree with her demands. Find out who's getting naked next when Game Of Thrones Season 6 returns at long last this April 24 on HBO. Watch the trailer below:
