Page 3 Profile: Emilia Clarke aka daenerys Targaryen

Co-star Oona Chaplin, who plays Talisa Maegyr, told The Telegraph that one of the women on the show who “got her kit off the most in the first couple of seasons, now doesn’t at all because she said, ‘I want to be known for my acting not for my breasts’.”
Clarke has not confirmed the claims, though in the current season of the show she has at least been allowed to wear something approaching a garment. Still, the rest of the female cast regularly have to bare all.
