Los Angeles: Actress Emilia Clarke says she needed “vodka and some flattering lighting” to film nude scenes in the popular TV series Game of Thrones.

The 29-year-old, who stars as Daenerys Targaryen in the show, says she needed a little help and encouragement before she agreed to strip off for Game of Thrones, reports

“All I needed was vodka and some flattering lighting and I was ready,” Clarke told The Sun newspaper.

Clarke, who had previously signed a no-nudity clause, said she found one particular nude scene to be "empowering", when her on-screen character Daenerys walked through an inferno to emerge naked.

“It was just a wonderful, strong moment I wanted to own, a real empowering, girl-power wow scene.

“I was so thrilled with it. It's not a sexy scene, she's not naked for no reason, it's not gratuitous. She's naked because she's just destroyed her enemies in this almighty blaze after they underestimated her,” she said.
