Apart from the show's intriguing storyline and magnificent cast, one of the biggest elements that drew a lot of attention for the show was its nude scenes. The show in its first few seasons comprised of several nude scenes and recently, actress Emilia Clarke opened up about shooting them and the impact they had on her career. Shocking!

The Mother of Dragons bared it all in a couple of scenes and recently as she appeared on Dax Shephard's podcast Armchair Expert, spoke about how she was expected to be okay with doing nude scenes for other projects too. During her interaction with Shephard, Clarke said, "I’ve had fights on set before where I’m like, ‘No, the sheet stays up’, and they’re like, ‘You don’t wanna disappoint your Game of Thrones fans’.

She’s shivering!’ He was so kind and considerate and cared about me as a human being.”Emmys 2019 Best Dressed: Zendaya, Emilia Clarke and Kim Kardashian Take Home the Trophy for Ruling Purple Carpet this Year (View Pics).
