Emilia Clarke Talks Controversial 'Game of Thrones' Rape Scene: 'Ask George R.R. Martin'

Emilia Clarke looks fabulous and fierce on the cover of Glamour magazine’s May 2016 issue.

Here’s what the 29-year-old Game of Thrones star had to share with the mag:

On the controversial Game of Thrones rape scene: “Yes. Well, Daenerys and Khal Drogo’s arranged marriage, and the customary rape that followed—ask George R.R. Martin why he did that, ’cause that’s on him. But I thought the consensual sex she has thereafter was genius. She is physically saying, ‘You can’t rape me again. I’m going to be in control and show you something you’ve never seen before.’ At the heart of it, we’re telling a story; you need that part of the story to feel empathy for Daenerys. You see her attacked by her brother, raped by her husband, and then going, ‘F—k all of you, I’m gonna rule the world.’ That’s where we are now.”

On nudity in GoT and why fans didn’t see Jason Momoa in the buff: “Oh, I did. I saw his member, but it was covered in a pink fluffy sock. Showing it would make people feel bad. It’s too fabulous. No, I don’t know why. But I’d like to bring your memory back to Mr. Michiel Huisman [Khaleesi’s love interest in seasons four and five] and I copulating for the first time, which began with me saying, ‘Take off your clothes,’ and then you got to see his perfect bottom.”

On how she’d like to write Game of Thrones fan fiction: “I want to see Daenerys and her three dragons share the throne. Eat goat they’ve barbecued. And bring back all the pretty boys, get them to take their trousers down, and be like, ‘I’m now the queen of everything! I’d like close-ups of all the boys’ pen*ses, please.’”

    Why is she still talking about the rape scene 5 years later?

  • Will

    So Emilia thinks women win when they submit to sex they don’t want to avoid a brutal rape. She fits in well on that show.

  • laura

    She’s not talking of nowadays in our society, obviously.

  • celine

    if i am not mistaken, in the books Drogo didn’t rape her character at their wedding night. he even asked her permission. it has been so long i read that book but i don’t remember any rape between those two characters.

    emilia is the best!

  • Wendy

    I’m going to assume because she was asked a question about it.

  • Wendy

    The point clearly went over your head. Nice job.

    I wished I was in that seen with Jason Momoa… We would be doing retakes all night… I figure out a way to get that fluffy sock off😳😜. I love me some Jason Momoa.
