In case you missed it, her character, Daenerys Targaryen, got very hot and heavy with Jon Snow, played by Kit Harrington, and some viewers thought there was a little too much, err, flesh.

And two years ago when a Daily Mail article alleged that Emilia "can't stand" sex scenes, she took to Instagram, saying: "In drama, if a nude scene forwards a story or is shot in a way that adds insight into characters, I'm perfectly fine with it..."
