“Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke had one of the more attention-grabbing scenes in the show’s new season Sunday night, when she emerged from a burning Dothraki temple with her clothes burned off but otherwise completely unharmed by the flames.
It was a triumphant moment for the character, and Clarke wants everyone to know that it was all her.
“I’d like to remind people the last time I took my clothes off was Season 3,” Clarke told Entertainment Weekly. “That was a while ago. It’s now Season 6. But this is all me, all proud, all strong. I’m just feeling genuinely happy I said ‘Yes.’ That ain’t no body double.”
And at least this time, unlike her fire walk from the end of Season 1, she got to do it on a closed set indoors. So there’s that. “Taking off my clothes is not the easiest thing, but with the magic of the effects, I don’t have to do a Season 1 and go on a cliff and do it,” she said. “I’m in control of it.”
