Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen in 'Game of Thrones'

According to HBO, several scenes from the fantasy drama series — which is known for pushing the boundaries with its nudity, sex and violence — were uploaded to the pornographic website, in addition to parodies of porn stars imitating characters such as Lord Varys (Conleth Hill), Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), reports usmagazine.com.

“HBO is aware of the issue and is in the process of getting material taken down from PornHub,” HBO said in a statement to The Sun newspaper.

PornHub recently released data stating that searches for Game of Thrones were “slightly above average” in the month of April, but “shot up in the days before the season premiere” on 24 April, peaking at 370 per cent.

“More specific searches include Walk of Shame, referring to a scene in which the character Cersei was forced to walk naked through the town,” PornHub revealed last month.
