Emilia Clarke wants Daenerys to be the queen of Westeros (and penises)
“I want to see Daenerys and her three dragons share the throne,” Clark explained to Glamour before detailing the dick utopia she has in mind for the series finale. “And bring back all the pretty boys, get them to take their trousers down, and be like, ‘I’m now the queen of everything! I’d like close-ups of all the boys’ penises, please.’”
That grand finale would help counteract the Game of Thrones track record of a disproportionate amount of female nudity. Clarke wants her character to help empower women.
“This gorgeous girl once said to me, ‘Watching Khaleesi makes me feel like I can be a strong woman,'” she said. “I remember being like, ‘That’s proper.’ That is a wonderful thing. Then, there are times with certain dudes where I’m like, ‘You’ve seen my tits. OK, sure, you can have a selfie.’ Awkward!”
When directly asked about why Khaleesi’s husband, Khal Drogo, did not show his junk, Clarke has her own ideas based on first-hand experience.
“I did,” she said. “I saw his member, but it was covered in a pink fluffy sock. Showing it would make people feel bad. It’s too fabulous. No, I don’t know why.”
The show has made improvements evening the playing field, though, as Clarke points out. She then singles out male co-stars that viewers have had the opportunity to objectify.
“I’d like to bring your memory back to Mr. Michiel Huisman [who plays Daenerys’ bedmate Daario Naharis] and I copulating for the first time,” she told the Glamour reporter, who happens to be named Jonah Weiner. “Which began with me saying, ‘Take off your clothes,’ and then you got to see his perfect bottom.”
All hail the queen of dragons.
