'Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke looks like a modern-day Khaleesi on Flare magazine
During the interview with Flare, Clarke opened up about some of the misconceptions about Hollywood glamor. "There are no captions on red-carpet photos that say, 'This girl trained for two weeks, she went on a juice diet, she has a professional hair and makeup person, and this dress was made for her,'" Clarke says. "I just wish they'd say, 'It ain't the truth.'"
For "Thrones," Clarke hasn't had to put herself through an extensive exercise regimen like some of the other cast members have. However, that will change in her upcoming "Terminator " reboot.
"This is the most physical transformation I've ever done. But I haven't done anything before this -- I've done 'Game of Thrones' and that's about it," she says. "With Dany, it's all CGI dragons, so not much training is needed."
As for her onscreen nude scenes, Clarke says those weren't the most difficult parts of shooting "Game of Thrones."
"The aftermath was the thing that was harder to deal with," she admits. "Going in to do my first press junket, that's a hell of a lot scarier than being naked up on TV!"
"Game of Thrones" Season 4 premieres on HBO on April 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
