The 33-year-old said, "Season 1 was what it was — it was a fuck ton of nudity... and obviously I took the job. And then they sent me the pilot, they sent me the scripts, and I was reading them and it was like, 'Oh, there's the catch! Ooh okay, alright then.'"
"I'd been on a film set twice before then and now I'm on a film set completely naked with all these people."
Emilia admitted, "It was definitely hard, which is why the scenes, when I got to do them with Jason [Momoa] were wonderful because he was like, 'No, sweetie, this is not okay' and I was like, 'Oh.'"
Emilia went on to say how helpful it was to have Jason on set, who played her love interest in Season 1:
He took care of me, he really did, in an environment where I didn't know I needed to be taken care of. It's only now that I realize how fortunate I was with that, because that could have gone many, many, many different ways. Because Jason had experience, he had done a bunch of stuff before coming on to this. He was like, "Sweetie, this is how it's meant to be and this is how it's not meant to be, and I'm going to make sure that's the way it goes." He was so kind and considerate, and cared about me as a human being.
