Every little bit of news about HBO's hit TV series "Game of Thrones" managed to stay on top of the headlines as new spoilers continue to surface.

The most recent news is all about Emilia Clarke who plays Daenerys Targaryen, the exiled princess and a major Iron Throne contender in the show based on George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" book series.

According to Independent UK, the 28-year-old British actress admitted to being uncomfortable with 'unsubtle' and 'gratuitous' sex scenes, something her role may force her into doing considering her reputation for maintaining her composure even in explicit moments.

"I'm British, so I cringe at that sort of thing anyway -- I can't stand it. I don't want to have sex thrown in my face and I've always thought the suggestion is so much more titillating than the act itself," she told Daily Mail UK during a party in Mayfair.

"Most sex scenes you see in films or on TV are gratuitous and they're usually just to attract an audience. On screen, the subtler the better," she added.

However, this was not the first time she expressed her opinion quite so boldly.

Oona Chaplin, one of her co-stars in the "Game of Thrones," revealed to the Daily Mail that the actress had even spoken with the showrunners to refuse anymore nude scenes saying that she "wanted to be known for [her] acting, not [her] breasts."

While she may not want her body exposed the way it has been in the show, she has lauded the show for showing female characters who 'accept the femininity and take strength from it.'

"I think that's the beauty of the show: as women, we accept our femininity and take strength from it, as opposed to trying to hide it and behave in a masculine way," she explained in an interview with the Radio Times back in April.

By doing this, Clarke has defended the "Game of Thrones" TV series from accusations of misogyny for having very audacious female characters in the show.

And quite rightfully so considering how the 'creativity' of it all became the show's greatest asset, something which even earned them eight Emmy Awards on Saturday at the precursor to the main ceremony set for September 20, the Huffington Post reported.

The show took home technical awards such as Outstanding Makeup for a Single-Camera Series Non-Prosthetic Category, Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Contemporary or Fantasy Program, Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Drama Series, Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series and many more.
