Emilia Clarke has revealed that her brother works with her on Game of Thrones – meaning that any sex scenes she’s involved in become deeply awkward.
The 32-year-old British actress told Jimmy Kimmell that Bennett, who is older than her, works for the crew on the HBO series.
“He’s in the camera department, which is brilliant. It’s amazing,” she explained, before quickly explaining how it’s not always amazing. At all.
“There are some days when he’s like, ‘Oh, I’ll swing by’ because he’s literally in the next unit that’s, like, filming next door, and I’m like, ‘No, it’s good! I’m good. You can stay there,’” she joked.
“He’s like, ‘I just wanted to say hi, I haven’t seen you in ages!’ And I’m like, ‘No.’”
Asked who is more embarrassed about that kind of thing, she replied: “Definitely him.”
Clarke, who plays the would-be Queen of Westeros Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO fantasy series, also prepped fans for some revelations in the remaining three episodes of the show before it winds up for good, and some action to rival last week’s climactic Battle of Winterfell.
“[The next episodes] are going to be mental,” Clarke said. “Episode five is bigger. Episode five is ahhhh. I mean four and five and six, they’re all insane, but…
“Find the biggest TV you can.”
Kit Harington has also been hyping the show’s final eps.
“One of my favourite episodes is four because the characters have seemingly got what they needed,” he told Entertainment Weekly.
“The world is safe now. They’re celebrating and saying goodbye to lost friends. But as an audience you’re going, ‘This is only episode four, something’s going to happen.’ And that’s the cool thing because I think the characters are aware of this as well.
“There’s something twisted and uncomfortable about it. It’s so Shakespearean.”
Game of Thrones continues on Monday on Sky Atlantic.
