*WE REPEAT THAT SPOILERS FOR THE LATEST GAME OF THRONES EPISODE FOLLOW BELOW*

The latest episode of Game of Thrones (read our review here) saw a fiery climax as Daenerys won over the command of her Dothraki captors - a moment which saw the character, played by Emilia Clarke, shed her clothes.

Despite past reports stating the actor was no longer willing to go nude for the show (following a number of moments in the HBO series' first and third seasons), Clarke was quick to point out that this moment was, in fact, all her.

“I’d like to remind people the last time I took my clothes off was season 3," she said in an interview with EW. "That was awhile ago. It’s now season 6. But this is all me, all proud, all strong. I’m just feeling genuinely happy I said ‘Yes.’ There ain’t no body double!”

While the Dothraki scenes were shot in Spain, this moment was shot on a closed set in Belfast.

Clarke has recently spoken out about the high ratio of female to male nude scenes, using her Thrones co-star Michael Huisman (Daario) as an example.

In the interview with chat show host Conan O'Brien, she teased this episode's closing moment: "...I’m doing it this year and people can talk about it and I’m ready to answer any questions about it, basically.”

Reflecting on Dany's turning point, Clarke commented: “It’s so exciting, very tingly-making. Every season I get at least one spine-chilling moment. I just stand up and I go, ‘I’m hearing what you’re all saying, but funny thing, I’m going to kill you all. I forgot that I have an ace in my back pocket and now I win.’”
