During her conversation, Emilia discussed the elaborate costumes featured in the hit HBO series, and shared a key difference between how the male and female actors were costumed.

“The guys in the Night’s Watch, Jon Snow, are wearing a woolly mammoth all the time,” she said.

“When we were shooting things in a hot country when they had all of those things on, they had this pump that had its own little generator attached into the costumes. They used it to pump cold water into these pipes and cool them all down so underneath they had this weird kind of cooling system,” she continued.

“Girls weren’t allowed that. All I could get was the back of my wig to be lifted up. It’s too hard, I’ve got a wig on, they don’t make cold packs you know, you put ice packs on yourself.”

One of Emilia Clarke‘s co-stars recently revealed they almost signed a fan petition about the show’s finale.
