For those who missed it, after breaking free from the Dothraki by burning her captors alive, Clarke’s character, Daenerys Targaryen (who is, conveniently, fireproof), emerged from the burning temple unharmed. She was also unclothed, which promptly set the Internet on fire, too.
This isn’t the first time she’s appeared nude for the series—“GoT” fans will remember that Clarke’s clothes were burned off several seasons ago. “I’d like to remind people the last time I took my clothes off was season three,” Clarke told Entertainment Weekly. “That was a while ago. It’s now season six. But this is all me, all proud, all strong. I’m just feeling genuinely happy I said ‘Yes.’ That ain’t no body double!”
Clarke said that she was more comfortable shooting the nude scene this time around, as she was able to film in a private closed set in Belfast. “Taking off my clothes is not the easiest thing, but with the magic of the effects, I don’t have to do a season one and go on a cliff and do it,” she said. “I’m in control of it.”
