“He was crying more than me,” Clarke said. “It’s only now that I realize how lucky I was with this, because it could have taken so many different ways. Because Jason had experience – he was a seasoned actor who had done a bunch of stuff before it got to this – he was like, ‘Honey, this is how it’s supposed to be, this is how it’s not supposed to be, and I’m going to make sure that’s that fucking look. He was always like, ‘Can we get her a fucking robe? She’s shaking! He was so kind and caring and cared about me as a human being.’

Clarke says she’s now “much savvier” with what she’s been comfortable with on set since Game of Thrones, especially when it comes to n-dity.

“I’ve had fights on set before where I was like, ‘No, the sheet stays up,’ and they were like, ‘You don’t want to disappoint your Game of Thrones fans,'” she said. “And I’m like, ‘Fuck you.'”
