Emilia Clarke’s Candid Confession Why She Would Cry Before Filming Love Scenes With Jason Momoa
Game of Thrones was a cultural phenomenon that enthralled millions of fans around the world. Among its star-studded cast, Emilia Clarke stood out as the fierce and beloved Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons. But playing such a powerful and complex role came with a price. Clarke discovered a hidden weakness in her character that she had never noticed before joining the epic fantasy saga.
She didn’t know a major part about her role.
In a candid podcast interview, Emilia Clarke revealed that she cried before filming her intimate scenes with Jason Momoa in Game of Thrones. The actress, who played the iconic Daenerys Targaryen, said she was unaware of the explicit scenes when she signed up for the role.
The actress shared her feelings about the situation in a candid interview. She said, "I took the job, and then they sent me the scripts, and I was reading them, and I was like, ’Oh, there’s the catch!’
She overcame her doubts and tackled the role with professionalism, having just finished drama school. She trusted that the script was necessary and well-written. Jason, who played her doomed on-screen spouse Khal Drogo, always helped her feel more comfortable.
Jason Momoa was very considerate while shooting.
Emilia Clarke praised Jason Momoa for his supportive behavior during the difficult scenes. She thanked him for his kindness and expertise, which made her feel more at ease on set. Jason did everything he could to look after Emilia, even getting her a robe when she was cold between scenes.
She matured as an actress after her role in the series.
Momoa’s care for Emilia Clarke on set shows his professionalism and kindness. Actors need to feel safe and comfortable on set, especially during sensitive scenes. And Momoa made sure that Clarke was well-looked after. Maybe Khal had a softer side than he let on.
Clarke is grateful to the show for kickstarting her career and making her famous. The Me Before You star has since grown more confident and has learned to say no to scenes that make her uneasy despite the pushback from others.
