During a sitdown with Patricia Arquette, Michelle Williams, Christine Baranski, Danai Gurira and Niecy Nash for The Hollywood Reporter's Drama Actress Roundtable, Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke opened up about her decision not to play Anastasia Steele in the "Fifty Shades" franchise because of the reaction to her nudity in "Game of Thrones", reports etonline.com. The role went to Dakota Johnson. "Well, Sam (Taylor-Johnson, the director) is a magician. I love her, and I thought her vision was beautiful. But the last time that I was naked on camera on ('Game of Thrones') was a long time ago, and yet it is the only question that I ever get asked because I am a woman," she said.
"And it's annoying as hell and I'm sick and tired of it because I did it for the character -- I didn't do it so some guy could check out my t*ts, for God's sake." The actress continued: "So, that coming up, I was like, 'I can't'. I did a minimal amount and I'm pigeonholed for life, so me saying yes to that, where the entire thing is about sensuality and sex and being naked and all of that stuff, I was just like, 'No way am I going to voluntarily walk into that situation and then never be able to look someone in the eye and be like, 'No, you can't keep asking me this question'." "Game of Thrones" is over, but the actress is looking forward to the documentary "Game of Thrones: The Last Watch". It will air in India on Star World on May 28.
The sixth episode of the final season saw the death of one of the major characters, Daenerys Targaryen. Her character was brutally killed on screen by Jon Snow and off the screen by the writers, allege GoT fans. Earlier, Emilia, in an interview had spoken about the fate of her character. She said, "I feel very taken care of as a character in that sense. It's a very beautiful and touching ending. Hopefully, what you'll see in that last moment as she's dying is: There's the vulnerability there's the little girl you met in season 1. See? She's right there. And now, she's not there anymore. But having said all of the things I've just said, I stand by Daenerys. I stand by her! I can't not."
