Emilia Clarke was offered a role in Fifty Shades of Grey

Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke turned down the lead role in the Fifty Shades franchise.

She told the Hollywood Reporter this week that she didn't want to get naked on camera again.

Her nude scene in Game Of Thrones gained widespread attraction which she says is 'annoying as hell.'

Sam Taylor-Johnson directed the first Fifty Shades movie which did remarkably well.

Emilia says, 'Sam is a magician. I love her, and I thought her vision was beautiful.'

'But the last time that I was naked on camera on [Game of Thrones] was a long time ago, and yet it is the only question that I ever get asked because I am a woman.'

'It's annoying as hell and I'm sick and tired of it because I did it for the character. I didn't do it so some guy could check out my t*ts, for God's sake.'

'So, that coming up, I was like, "I can't." I did a minimal amount and I'm pigeonholed for life, so me saying yes to that, where the entire thing is about sensuality and sex and being naked and all of that stuff.'

'I was just like, "No way am I going to voluntarily walk into that situation and then never be able to look someone in the eye and be like, 'No, you can't keep asking me this question."'

The role went to Dakota Johnson

Johnson played Anastasia Steele in the franchise after Clarke turned down the role.

The first movie did incredibly well following the success of the book.

It follows the story of college senior Anastasia Steele's romance with Christian Grey played by Jamie Dornan.

The second movie came out in 2017 and it was called Fifty Shades Darker. 

In this movie, Christian Grey tries to win back the affection of Anastasia Steele.

However, she has a few demands of her own.

The third and final film of the franchise is called Fifty Shades Freed. 

Christian and Anastasia are married now and they're sharing a life of luxury.

Their romantic life together takes a turn when sinister events come to light.

The final ever episode of Game Of Thrones aired over the weekend so we can't wait to see what Emilia does next.
