Game of Thrones has gathered opinions, backlash and support for its long list of needed and unneeded desire to show skin on screen. Some actors got off the hook with just a bit here and there and there, while some had to strip down completely for long and recurring scenes in the seasons so far.
While there are many actors who have donned the birthday suit on the show, but here are some of the core cast members who stripped down for on numerous occasions.
Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen first caused an uproar in season one episode one when Danny’s creepy brother Viserys fondles her breasts before selling her off to Khal Drogo. Then for the second time when she was reborn in the fire as the eggs hatched and her clothes burned off in episode ten of the same season. A similar story went down in season six and Danny burned down her Khal enemies and took over the community.
Kit Harington as Jon Snow and Rose Leslie as his free folk, Ygritte. The two consummate in season three, episode 5 which lead to the Wildlings passing into the seven kingdoms and crossing the wall.
Kit also had a sequence with Emilia Clarke in the most recent episodes, season 7 episode 7, when Jon acknowledges Danny as he true Queen and falls for her.
Jason Momoa as Khal Drogo who when alive in season one time and again sexually assaulted Danny and later lets her take control.
Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister in the infamous ‘Walk of Shame’ sequence in season 5 episode 10. But even before that Cersei love making seasons with twin Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster Waldau) were more than what was fans were expecting, even if they were consensual, which was indeed a rare occurrence.
Carice van Houten as Melisandre gave us the shock of our life when she dropped her gown and her charmed necklace in season six episode one to revealed her true self- an old haggard women. But even before that in season two, episode four as Melisandre gave birth to a demon and the scene went on forever we were just as surprised.
Some of the noteworthy mentions are, Alfie Allen as Theon Greyjoy who we have come to love and hate tremendously, Finn Jones as Loras Tyrell, sister and queen (for a very short while) Natalie Dormer as Margaery Tyrell and who can forget the iron lady, Gwendoline Christie as Brienne of Tart.
