A lof of you may not know about this but Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke nearly played the lead role of Anastasia Steele in the steamy romance flick Fifty Shades of Grey

Emilia ultimately turned down the role, saying she was scared about being "pigeonholed". Dakota Johnson ended up snagging the role and went on to portray the part in the 'Fifty Shades' trilogy.

The Me Before You actress recently revealed the real reason why she turned down the role. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Emilia said it's because of the amount of nudity the film requires. The fan obsession with her nude scenes in the HBO fantasy series didn't help either. “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.”

She added, "And 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 tits, for God’s sake." Could you imagine what would have been if Emilia accepted the role?

How do you feel about this?
