It was Emilia Clarke’s first big break in the industry. Speaking on Dax Shepard’s podcast, she revealed that it was quickly discovered upon reading the script that she was to do a simulated sex scene. Fast track to 2019, Game of Thrones was a smash hit— and of course, that meant more opportunities for her. Unfortunately, she may have had to bare all on those roles too. Thankfully new guidelines are laid out, and these new steps received much-needed support from industry bodies such as BAFTA and the Casting Directors’ Guild. The guidelines include banning full nudity in any audition or callback, securing an explicit written consent from the performer and a 48 hours’ notice with full scripts.
