Warning: spoiler alert. If you haven't seen the latest episode of Game of Thrones (episode five: 'The Door), stop reading NOW.
For those that have, you'll probably be aware of the, ahem, revealing scene in question. In the scene, a male actor is idling backstage after performing a play, when he clutches his penis and complains about his warts, and - not to make too big a deal of it - we see everything. Of course, this is nothing new to the Game of Thrones universe - we've seen plenty of boobs and genitalia on the hit HBO show before. But still, considering this is one of the most watched TV shows on the planet - it's still pretty daring.
It's so controversial Emilia Clarke (who plays Daenerys Targaryen on GoT) addressed it on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert yesterday. The actress was questioned about her fire-lighting topless scene in Episode 4, and admitted that she didn't use a body double. It was "an empowered scene which wasn't sexual," she says. "It was naked, but it was strong." And as far as she was concerned, the penis scene was no biggie. "You know I did it, why can't the boys do it?"
Her comments reflect a widely reported story in Glamour magazine earlier this year where Clarke outlined her ballsy (literally) wishes for the show. "I want to see Daenerys and her three dragons share the throne. Eat goat they've barbecued. And bring back all the pretty boys, get them to take their trousers down, and be like, "I'm now the queen of everything! I'd like close-ups of all the boys' penises, please."
Making reference to her Glamour comments on Colbert, Clarke was quick to quip, "I think they heard me... Junk equality," she laughed. Now that's what we call female empowerment. Watch the interview clip below.
