(Not EVERYONE has an inappropriate relative who stirs up a yearly family forum on whether dad’s gross uncle so-and-so deserves an invite to Christmas Eve dinner.)
London-born Emilia Clarke plays Daenerys Targaryen, also known as the Khaleesi and Queen of Dragons, on HBO’s better-than-all-current-onscreen-fantasy Game of Thrones.
On Monday Clarke visited Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about the third season, which premieres March 31, 2013.
Brunette Emilia, who wears a white-blonde wig on Thrones, tells Kimmel about her family’s reaction to her many nude scenes. She says it was less her dad (“he’s pleased that I was employed”) and more her uncle Ken who was thrown off.
It was over Christmas… But he was kind of alarmed, I think, when he saw it… It was last Christmas. He sort of looked me dead in the eye, and was like ‘Emilia, you didn’t tell me! You didn’t tell me that you’d be naked for that long.’
Clarke confirms that the horse heart she ate for the Dothraki pre-birth ritual in season one was “like a big gummy bear sort of covered in fake blood that sort of tasted like bleach.”
“There was a moment when we were filming it that I disappeared, and I was stuck to the toilet,” she says. Oh, and in “Season three, Khaleesi gets properly badass.”
Seriously, how could she become more badass? Are new dragons going to fly out of her uterus?
