Will the Real Khaleesi Please Stand Up!
Earlier in May, Emilia Clarke confirmed that her naked fireproof scenes in Game of Thrones did not feature a body double.
However, Khal Drogo’s widow, has used a body double in the past to film non-speaking scenes where Khaleesi only appears in the background. Rosie Mac is a singer, model, actress and Khaleesi’s body double in season 5.
Khaleesi Mother of Dragons
During season 5, Rosie Mac announced her role as Khaleesi’s body double, gaining her a strong following on Instagram. The young model now has over 150,000 followers on the picture sharing app.
You’d be forgiven for mistaking the 18 year old model for the 28 year old actress. Rosie’s likeness to Emilia is uncanny, even up close.On Set ! !!!! Rosie Mac Official Daenerys Double for #GameOfThrones Season 5 <3 Popcorn Time !! 😀 #TheWinterIsComing A photo posted by Rosiemac (@rosiemacc) on
Two of a Kind
Last autumn, the 18 year old body double confirmed that she will not appear in season 6, leading many fans to worry about the fate of Clarke’s character. However, we’re 9 episode’s in and so far the Mother of Dragons is still alive and well. It is claimed that Emilia Clarke refused to do nude seasons after season 3 as she wanted to be recognised for her acting, not for her breasts. However, the actress took to Instagram to clarify her comments, stating that she was fine with nude scenes as long as it forwards the story or adds insight to a character.Amazing Memories& Amazing Friends especially my right hand man @ignaciojimenezblanco double of Dario #got #gameofthrones A photo posted by Rosiemac (@rosiemacc) on

The most talked about scene this season, featured a nude Khaleesi emerging from a fire in episode 4 season 6. Emilia has said of the scene: “I’d like to remind people the last time I took my clothes off was season 3. That was a while ago. It’s now season 6. But this is all me, all proud, all strong. I’m just feeling genuinely happy I said ‘Yes.’ There ain’t no body double!”
We’re hoping that Game of Throne’s decision not to feature a body double for Khalessi in season 6 is due to Emilia taking on more of the scenes herself and not due to her character’s untimely demise.
