The Mysterious Case of Emilia Clarke: Body Double Edition

Despite the fact that Emilia Clarkepubliclyproclaimedthat she didn't use a body double for last night's literally firenude scene on GoT, many people do not believe her (or, conversely, us—we are the experts, ladies and gents). It's understandable skepticism, considering last season's buzz about her reluctance to bare her Bs. Here's the thing, though: According to Emilia herself,the Quote of Mention was taken out of context.

I was followed into a party by a journalist who asked me a question about female empowerment and then quoted me entirely out of context for an outlet I didn’t agree to speak with. So I feel now, with the beauty of Instagram I should clarify my statements, if for nothing else than for posterity. In drama, if a nude scene forwards a story or is shot in a way that adds insight into characters, I’m perfectly fine with it. Sometimes explicit scenes are required and make sense for the characters/story, as they do in Westeros. If it’s gratuitous for gratuitous sake, then I will discuss with a director on how to make it more subtle. In either case, like a good Mother of Dragons, I’m always in control. #dracarys #bodiesmaybetemplesbutmindsarewhatmatter #MODforreal
