As Game of Thrones approaches its final seasons, how should it end? With plenty of male full-frontal nudity, says Emilia Clarke — an opinion that is not likely to prove controversial among elements of the show’s fandom. “I want to see Daenerys and her three dragons share the throne,” the actress tells the latest issue of Glamour. “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.’” And while the audience never got a glimpse of her co-star Jason Momoa’s sun and stars, Clarke admits she snuck a peek: “It was covered in a pink fluffy sock. Showing it would make people feel bad. It’s too fabulous.”

Juicy quotes about male genitalia aside, Clarke also spoke about the show’s controversial handling of sexual violence. As she sees it, her own character’s wedding-night assault was integral for her journey. “At the heart of it, we’re telling a story; you need that part of the story to feel empathy for Daenerys,” she says. “You see her attacked by her brother, raped by her husband, and then going, ‘F**k all of you, I’m gonna rule the world.’ That’s where we are now.”
