Envy is coming! Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke revealed in an interview from Glamour‘s May issue that starring opposite Jason Momoa in season 1 had its share of perks.
The British actress, 29, who plays Daenerys Targaryen on the Emmy-winning HBO drama based on George R.R. Martin‘s best-selling novels, was asked in the interview to explain why male characters — such as Momoa’s Khal Drogo — don’t often get fully naked on the show, despite the series’ frequent female nudity. Drogo was married to the Mother of Dragons in the first season before she ended his life out of mercy after Mirri Maz Duur (Mia Soteriou) left him in a vegetative state.
“I saw his member, but it was covered in a pink fluffy sock,” Clarke says of Momoa, 36, who has a small role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. “Showing it would make people feel bad. It’s too fabulous.”
In regard Thrones’ comparative lack of male cast members revealing themselves, the Me Before You star adds: “I don’t know why. But I’d like to bring your memory back to Mr. Michiel Huisman [who plays Daario Naharis] and I copulating for the first time [in season 4], which began with me saying, ‘Take off your clothes,’ and then you got to see his perfect bottom.” In other words, baby steps.
Game of Thrones‘ sixth season premieres on HBO Sunday, April 24, at 9 p.m. ET.
