Game Of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke passionately defends controversial rape scenes as she claims Daenerys Targaryen was empowered



Emilia Clarke from Game Of Thrones has defended controversial rape scenes in the show’s first series.

Terminator star Emilia insisted that her character, Daenerys Targaryen, was empowered by the rape in her marriage after she overcame it and insisted only on consensual sex with husband, Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa).

“The consensual sex she has thereafter was genius. She is physically saying, ‘You can’t rape me again. I’m going to be in control and show you something you’ve never seen before’,” the British actress told Glamour magazine.

“At the heart of it, we’re telling a story; you need that part of the story to feel empathy for Daenerys.

“You see her attacked by her brother, raped by her husband, and then going, ‘F**k all of you, I’m gonna rule the world.”

The show’s creator, George RR Martin has spoken about his choice to cover rape in the show and books.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, he said: “Rape, unfortunately, still a part of war today. It’s not a strong testament to the human race, but I don’t think we should pretend it doesn’t exist.

“I want to portray struggle. Drama comes out of conflict. If you portray a utopia, then you probably wrote a pretty boring book.”

Season six of the show starts in the UK on April 25.

Around 40 per cent of the show’s viewers are women, and Emilia also explains that she “loves” that so many women watch the show.

Emilia is outspoken in her feminism – and was recently places on a list of the most powerful Europeans under 30 in the entertainment industry .

In the first “30 Under 30 Europe” list, compiled by US magazine Forbes, the United Kingdom dominates the entertainment category.

A dozen of the 30 actors, musicians and sports stars are from the UK.

Other Brits on the list aside from Emilia, which mirrors the long-established US version, include Star Wars lead Daisy Ridley, tennis ace Andy Murray , athlete Jessica Ennis-Hill, singers FKA Twigs, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Florence Welch, and rapper Little Simz.

Representing Ireland are actress Saoirse Ronan, singer Hozier, and golf star Rory McIlroy.

We’re sure than Daenerys would approve of that.

Strongman added that he believes the fans were expecting a whole lot “since we were not able to meet it them they are a bit disappointed but we tried our personal best.”
