"I would like to remind people the last time I took my clothes off was season 3. That was a while ago. It's now season 6. But this is all me, all proud, all strong. I'm just feeling genuinely happy. That ain't no body double," Clarke told ew.com.

Clarke also addressed rumours about her disapproval towards filming naked scenes for the show.

"It's difficult to be misquoted and it's nice to have something like Instagram to say the truth," she said.

"How many times has Michiel Huisman (who plays Daario Naharis on the show) been asked about the fact he's taken his clothes off a bunch? Is that even a discussion? No. So, I'm doing it this year and people can talk about it and I'm ready to answer any questions about it, basically," Clarke added.

In the meantime, the actress has also been asked a lot of questions about her powerful scene in episode four — the latest — in Game of Thrones' season six. In a featurette released by HBO, Emilia explained the scene from "The Unburnt". You can watch the video here — warning: major spoilers ahead.
