Emilia Clarke needed little vodka to go nude for the series "Game of Thrones"

Actress Emilia Clarke says she needed “vodka and some flattering lighting” to film nude scenes in the popular TV series “Game of Thrones.”

The 29-year-old, who stars as Daenerys Targaryen in the show, says she needed a little help and encouragement before she agreed to strip off for “Game of Thrones”, reports

“All I needed was vodka and some flattering lighting and I was ready,” Clarke told The Sun newspaper.

Clarke, who had previously signed a no-nudity clause, said she found one particular nude scene to be “empowering”, when her on-screen character Daenerys walked through an inferno to emerge naked.

“It was just a wonderful, strong moment I wanted to own, a real empowering, girl-power wow scene.

“I was so thrilled with it. It’s not a sexy scene, she’s not naked for no reason, it’s not gratuitous. She’s naked because she’s just destroyed her enemies in this almighty blaze after they underestimated her,” she said.
