Emilia Clarke refuses to justify her Game of Thrones Nude Scenes
Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has refused to give in to sexist questioning about appearing nude in the hit fantasy TV series. Known for playing the fierce female Khaleesi in the series, Emilia recently opened up about how she handles all that comes with Game of Thrones, delving into ways that women everywhere can make a difference, and more in a Huffington Post blog.
She wrote: “Do I get treated equally at work? Not always. Does every woman? No, and the statistics back that up. Do I get asked questions at press junkets by men and women alike, specifically because they will get headline-grabbing responses coming from a young woman? Yes.
“If you’ve watched Game Of Thrones then, spoiler, you will have seen me in the nude. There are plenty of ways in which people want me to respond to questions about this fact. And plenty of reasons why I do not feel the need to justify myself.”
Emilia definitely isn’t the one to shy away from the camera or voicing her opinion, particularly when it comes to feminism and her passion for women's rights and equality is nothing new.
"My life has been shaped by a true sense of equality," she said. "It was simply etched into every action, choice, and behavior of my family."
Game of Thrones season 7 is will premiere on Star World Premiere HD, Star Word HD and Star World in summer 2017.
