Here’s an interview of the cast talking about the new cast members:

Game of Throne actress Emilia Clarke has been discussing how her own development has matched her character’s. When asked what similarities Emilia can see between her character and herself, the blonde actress admitted that the biggest shared trait was naivity:

“We both started out as naïve young girls with plenty to learn. Season one was sometimes petrifying and terrifying and horrifying. Dany was with me and helped me to step away from myself. I feel like I’ve learned a huge amount. I think we’re similar in that we try not to make the same mistakes twice. Not to sound too much like an obnoxious actor, but the character never really leaves me. I’ve read all the books many times over, so I sometimes find it easier being on set, because it can be hard to get out of character.”

Fantasy fans are a notoriously obsessive lot, but Emilia is relieved that she hasn’t had any crazy marriage proposals yet. She told the Telegraph:

“Nobody’s proposed yet, no. Nobody’s gone down on one knee. But my biggest aim in the first season was to keep the fans happy. I knew that Dany was a loved and hated character in the books, and I wanted to be true to everyone’s imagination of her while also being true to my interpretation. If I’ve managed that, then fantastic. But I don’t really look at stuff online. At the start I was looking and found something which wasn’t very nice, so now I leave it all. If there’s something that people are desperately happy with or unhappy with, you tend to hear about it anyway.”

When asked how life has changed for her, she admits that her life is now unrecognisable in comparison to pre-Game of Thrones:

“Game of Thrones has opened doors that were never there before. But it can be dangerous to see it in those terms, I think. It’s best to take it as it comes and work as hard as you can, and hopefully the other things fall into place.”

Emilia also said that the actors talk to George R R Martin, the author of the series, whenever they like:

“We can talk to him whenever we want. but on the whole he lets us get on with it. If we were doing anything really wrong I think he’d let us know, but he’s happy I think. But at the moment he’s writing so we don’t want to disturb him.”

Emilia Clarke has a certain kind of nubile beauty that’s irresistible to casting directors. She’s one of those child-women who’s all bee-stung lips, broad brow and soft, round visage, a facade of über-innocence that’s always hiding anything but. On an actress like Mila Kunis, a baby face is the alluring mask of a bad girl. But in the case of Game of Thrones star Clarke, it’s the portal to a type of young female character you’ve rarely seen, one whose womanly side isn’t largely expressed by her sexuality but by a solid core of inner strength and authority.

Of course, there’s a reason you haven’t seen many characters like that: Not many young women—or young men, for that matter—are masters-of-the-universe material. Not yet, anyway. So the executive producers of HBO’s highly rated fan favorite fantasy-epic series launched an extensive search for Daenerys Targaryen, one of the would-be monarchs of Game of Thrones’ dungeons-and-dragons world.

HBO signed a more well-known actress to the pilot, and then, as Hollywood tales often go, the part of the silver-haired goddess was recast to Clarke, now 24, after more than 100 had auditioned. “It’s just so rare that someone so young is called upon to be so commanding and have so much gravitas,” says D.B. Weiss, who cocreated Thrones with David Benioff based on George R.R. Martin’s wildly popular series of novels, A Song of Fire and Ice.

Her role as the Mother of Dragons has made her famous, but Emilia Clarke sounds relieved that she hasn’t really had to deal with the pitfalls of fame since the debut of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” (Sundays at 9 p.m. ET).

“I’m really oblivious to it, because I look so different,” said Clarke, whose natural brunette hair color makes her look quite dissimilar from her character, the white-haired, royal exile Daenerys Targaryen. Still, people do occasionally recognize her: A woman in a department store in Los Angeles was too stunned to get on the elevator when she saw that Clarke was in it. “Khaleesi?” the fan asked.

“And then the doors closed, and the lift kept going up,” Clarke said with a laugh. “Stuff like that happens, and there’s also, ‘You kind of look like that girl from “Game of Thrones.”‘”

Given that she prefers a low-key lifestyle, it’s perhaps good that the film role she just finished also has the actress wearing things that make it unlikely that fans will recognize her. In “Spike Island,” Clarke plays one of a group of early ’90s Stone Roses fans, and wears baggy overalls and that era’s puffy, fluffy hair.

She’s a huge fan of the band, but as she noted, “The ’90s were really just bad for fashion and hair.” It is known, Khaleesi.

That movie, which doesn’t have a release date yet, just wrapped a couple of weeks ago, and at the end of 2011, Clarke finished filming her “Game of Thrones” scenes, which were mostly shot in Croatia. Once again, she typically worked far away from the rest of the cast — this season, Dany is across the Narrow Sea, trying to keep her Khalasar (her Dothraki tribe) alive and ultimately trying to get back to Westeros, the land that the Targaryens used to rule. In last week’s episode of “Game of Thrones,” Dany and her followers finally found refuge in the mysterious city of Qarth, which is far from the capitol of the Seven Kingdoms.

Back in the real world, the London-based actress sees the rest of the cast whenever she can. “All of the boys, I see regularly because we’re all in London together, so that’s really nice,” she said. “A special bond was made with the whole of the cast from the beginning, when we were all a bit more together, and I don’t think that’s really going to go away.”

But as we discussed in our conversation, being away from home and all her friends and family is a situation her character Dany is quite familiar with — though of course the khaleesi’s situation is more extreme. She’s not only trying to keep her people safe and retake the Iron Throne, she’s also mourning the deaths of her husband, Khal Drogo, and her baby, and trying to nurture the three young dragons that hatched at the end of Season 1.

Clarke and I began by talking about the parallels between the actress herself and the young exile.
