Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke made her Broadway debut this week for her turn in the classic Truman Capote adaptation Breakfast At Tiffany‘s — and caused a frenzy for snapshots during a nude bubble bath scene.
The play in which Emilia Clarke makes the risque debut doesn’t officially open until March 20, but, if fan reaction to the preview is anything to go by, the bubble bath scene certainly made a splash.
Initial reports from the Cort Theatre crowd during Clark’s in the buff Broadway appearance indicate that the audience was uncharacteristically unhinged when the star appeared naked — “frantically” and en masse ignoring the standing rule against taking pictures in a frenzy to get shots of the actress in her bubble bath scene.
Reports after Emilia Clarke’s explosive inaugural Broadway show suggest that the West 48th Street theater has been forced to bring in extra security in order to prevent a repeat of Monday night’s disruptive behavior from audience members during the bawdy scene — in which audience-goers say “strategically placed” bubbles protected the celeb’s modesty on stage.
(However, many internet screengrabs exist of Clarke baring all in her role on Game Of Thrones.)
In her first live nude scene, Clarke’s character Holly Golightly (played iconically by Audrey Hepburn in the screen version of Breakfast At Tiffany’s) is tending to another character after a horse-riding injury. A source explains that Clarke “undresses him and he gets in the tub,” and then “goes offstage and comes back in a towel” before she “takes it off and gets in with him.”
But the source says if you want to see Emilia Clarke nude, audience members “don’t see everything” as there “are bubbles strategically placed.”
Several outlets noted that one pervy Twitter user mused after Clarke’s debut that he would “drink Emilia Clarke’s bath water.” Ew.
If Emilia Clarke hopes to remain semi-unseen in her Broadway turn, she may be out of luck. During Nicole Kidman’s nude Broadway stint, many audience members actually brought binoculars to spy on the star.
