Daenerys Targaryen — also referred to as actress Emilia Clarke — covers the May challenge of Glamour journal in all her badass glory.
In the candid cowl story, the 29-yr-previous actress talks concerning the ladies that comply with “GoT,” explains her character’s disturbing rape scene and discusses all the male nudity she needs to see.
“I love that so many ladies watch the present,” Clarke stated of the forty % feminine viewership following the HBO collection. “If you take a look at ‘Game of Thrones’ on face worth — blood, tits, dragons, swearwords — you’re like, ‘Oh, this have to be for guys.’ But when you take that away, the story strains are fascinating depictions of the wrestle for energy. And ladies are in on that dialog.”
Part of the present that will get robust for each female and male viewers to observe are the jarring depictions of rape on “GoT.” Though they’re troublesome for each the viewers and the actors, Clarke feels as if her specific scene constructed “empathy” for her character.
“Well, Daenerys and Khal Drogo’s organized marriage, and the customary rape that adopted — ask George S.S. Martin why he did that, ’trigger that’s on him,” Clarke stated. “But I thought the consensual intercourse she has thereafter was genius. She is bodily saying, ‘You can’t rape me once more. I’m going to be in management and present you one thing you’ve by no means seen earlier than.'”
The actress continued to defend the brutal scene. “At the guts of it, we’re telling a narrative; you want that a part of the story to really feel empathy for Daenerys,” she stated. “You see her attacked by her brother, raped by her husband, after which going, ‘E**okay all of you, I’m gonna rule the world.’ That’s the place we at the moment are.”
