Los Angeles: Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has said she refuses to give in to sexist questioning about appearing nude in the hit fantasy TV series.
Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen in the adaptation of George RR Martin's books known for their violence and nudity, wrote about the topic she is always quizzed over, for a Huffington Post special blog for International Women's Day, reports independent.ie.
The actress, who is guest editing the All Women Everywhere edition of the Huffington Post UK, wrote about her experiences of inequality at work.
She wrote: "Do I get treated equally at work? Not always. Does every woman? No, and the statistics back that up. Do I get asked questions at press junkets by men and women alike, specifically because they will get headline-grabbing responses coming from a young woman? Yes."
"If you've watched Game Of Thrones then, spoiler, you will have seen me in the nude. There are plenty of ways in which people want me to respond to questions about this fact. And plenty of reasons why I do not feel the need to justify myself."
Clarke admitted feeling like a "guilty feminist" for not having taken a more public stand more often, and also labelled herself a "girl-boss" as she discussed her upbringing and being made to feel that she could achieve anything her brother could.
Season one to six of Game of Thrones will air in India on Star World and Star World HD from April 8.
