Emilia Clarke, better known as Daenerys Targaryen in Westeros, made it known last month that she wanted #FreetheP on Game of Thrones. "I feel like there's a little bit of inequality between the amount of nudity that happens with women—this woman, in particular—and that happens with the other guys," she told James Corden at the time. "I just think that should be even."
She got one step closer this Sunday when a full-frame penis was shown (though on a lesser character). "I think they heard me! Junk equality!" she victoriously told Stephen Colbert when asked about that scene. Because it's about damn time, they both agreed. "I mean, I did it. Why can't the boys do it?"
Emilia also discussed the nude scene she did a week before—her first since season three. She walked out of flames naked—without the help of a body double—and just about broke the Internet. That was a strategic choice: "For me, I did it before in season one and people like to talk about it, so I just wanted to come out and do an empowered scene which wasn't sexual. It was naked, but it was strong. I'm kicking ass naked. If you can do it without any clothes, then you're a real badass."
She then showed off her equally badass accent skills with Stephen. Like ya do.
