“I didn’t do it so some guy could check out my t-ts”: Game of Thrones Star Emilia Clarke Refused Fifty Shades of Grey Because She Was Tired of Being Asked to Get Naked Numerous Times

Game of Thrones Star Emilia Clarke Refused Fifty Shades of Grey

Playing the Mother of Dragons on the sets of Game Of Thrones, Emilia Clarke has been the center of attraction for all the GoT fans from the series as well as from the books. Her portrayal of Daenerys Targaryen is referred to as one of the best performances in the whole show. But what the fans of the series would also know is the fact that playing the role of the character is not that easy, both physically and mentally, especially when the said character has to look a little… unchaste.

See, the series, based on George RR Martin’s book series of the same name, has explicit content that involves foul language, gore, sexual content, and nudity, which were adapted without any filters into the famous show. Thus, when Emilia Clarke revealed that she turned down the lead role in the Fifty Shades Trilogy, most fans of her work were not too surprised by it, as she revealed her reasoning for it.

Why Emilia Clarke Declined Fifty Shades Of Grey

There are many upsides to being remembered for playing a character in a project as it adds to an actor’s legacy, but what many might not know are the downsides of it. When you are famous for playing a certain type of character, it becomes hard to explore new horizons as you are seen as valuable in a certain enclosure. Thus, the reason for Emilia Clarke declining the role of Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey series becomes understandable.

For those of you who don’t know about the series, Fifty Shades of Grey is based on erotica novels of the same name written by E.L. James, and the films yet again have no filters for explicit content. So when Clarke came to know her role would be to act on set with no clothes on her body, she was quick to decline the offer. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Clarke said that she was not interested to shoot scenes where her bosom would be on full display to anybody.

“But the last time that I was naked on camera [on Game of Thrones] was a long time ago, and yet it is the only question that I ever get asked because I am a woman. And it’s annoying as hell and I’m sick and tired of it because I did it for the character—I didn’t do it so some guy could check out my t*ts, for God’s sake. So, that coming up, I was like, ‘I can’t.’”

After her very successful run as the Mother of Dragons in GoT, the actor deserves a well-earned rest, but it seems like the fans want her back in action. With the recent news of Amber Heard being removed by DC Films from the upcoming Aquaman 2, rumors have started to arise that Clarke might potentially be the next in line to become Mera in the upcoming sequel. While nothing official has been revealed by the company or Clarke herself, it would certainly be awesome to see Daenerys Targaryen reunite with Khal Drogo.
