STYLE MAGAZINE – For 25 minutes, the actor best known as ethereal blonde Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s Game of Thrones has been chatting breezily over the phone from her hometown of London, but now she chooses her words carefully. Emilia Clarke pauses. “That’s a really hard question,” she says, gathering her thoughts.

The subject: what character she most identifies with from ‘90s sitcom Friends. “I love Rachel,” she says. “We all want to be Rachel. But there’s something about Monica that is so reassuringly neurotic.” The true identity of her Friends spirit animal has been a subject of much debate with her best friend, Lola Frears, the daughter of Florence Foster Jenkins’ director Stephen Frears. “I feel like we both want to be Rachel but are both a bit Monica,” Clarke admits.

As proudly educated as Clarke is in the preposterously detailed world of Westeros built by George R. R. Martin in his “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels and refined by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss on the HBO phenomenon, returning July 16, Clarke is at least as big of a television nerd for the millennial must-see TV staple Friends. She outed herself as a Friends superfan on Graham Norton’s U.K. talk show last year, where she appeared alongside Matt LeBlanc. “I have one slight request for you,” she said to him as the cameras rolled. “Would you be able to ask me how I’m doing?” As LeBlanc mouthed Joey Tribbiani’s signature “How you doin’?”, she broke into nervous giggles.

Yes, Clarke knows what it’s like to be that kind of a fan, which is probably a very good thing considering her filmography, which includes such obsessed-over roles as Sarah Connor in 2015’s Terminator Genisys, an as-yet-unnamed character in 2018’s Han Solo prequel, and, most famously, Khaleesi herself on Game of Thrones.

The 30-year-old grew up in Berkshire outside of London, her father a sound engineer for the theatre and her mother a vice-president of marketing. She won her role in Game of Thrones in 2010 after the pilot had already been shot with British actress Tamzin Merchant playing Daenerys. (In an inauspicious debut, the pilot episode would be 90% reshot). Her brief résumé at that point included a guest-role on British soap Doctors and the direct-to-DVD Jurassic Park rip-off Triassic Attack, which no one has seen, including, according to last report, Clarke herself.

EXPRESS.CO.UKEmilia Clarke, who stars as Daenerys Targaryen, has dropped a huge spoiler about her character’s fate in upcoming episodes.

The Mother of Dragons was last seen sailing towards Westeros as she prepares to battle for the Iron Thrones – but will she survive?

The actress teased: “Right now, I’m sort of feeling – with her – optimistic. She’ll probably need some help, though. I’ll definitely be disappointed if she doesn’t make it,” she cheekily added.

Speaking about her determination to become a fair ruler, Emilia went on to tell the Belfast Telegraph: “I think that there was always that idea that she would know where she was going to, but the reality is frightening. I mean, I always believed that Dany had the highest of hopes for what kind of impact she could leave on this world. She is continuously reaching for purest level of rulership – is that a word? I just made it up.” (source)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – HBO has just answered a huge lingering question about Game of Thrones.

EW asked the network’s new programming president Casey Bloys if he plans to go along with showrunners’ David Benioff and Dan Weiss’ oft-stated desire to end their fantasy hit with season 8.

Bloys said yes, that is the current plan – the first time somebody at HBO has confirmed this.

Yes, they have a very specific plan about the number of seasons they want to do,” Bloys said at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills on Saturday. “Believe me, as the new [programming executive] coming in, if I could get them to do more. I would take 10 more seasons. But we take their lead on what they think they can do the best version of the show.”

The showrunners have also planned for the eighth season to consist of merely six episodes. On that front, however, Bloys said the exact number of season eight episodes is not yet final.

We then asked if the team is considering a Thrones spin-off to continue the valuable franchise. Thrones is one of TV’s most watched shows with 25 million total viewers this year across all platforms.

We’ve talked about it,” he said. “It’s something I’m not opposed to, but of course it has to make sense creatively. I’m not sure that [Benioff and Weiss] could really wrap their heads around it when they’re just about to start production [on season 7]. It’s a pretty intense production, they’re about to start production soon. I’m open to it. The guys weren’t opposed to it, but there’s no concrete plans for it at this point.”

Also, with the production delay of season seven – which will debut its seven episodes next summer – the executive confirmed the plan will take Thrones out of the running for the Emmys next year. Thrones received 23 prime-time 2016 Emmy nominations, more than any other show, but requires a heavy amount of winter location shooting for the next season (locations include a production unit filming in Iceland).

Still, Bloys pointed out, “Even if we took Thrones Emmys away this year, we’d still have more than anyone else.”

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – Summer is coming.

HBO is officially confirming some major changes for Game of Thrones.

Season 7 of the fantasy sensation will not return until summer 2017 – pushing back from the show’s usual strategy of premiering each edition of the series in the spring (typically April).

Also, the network is confirming for the first time that next edition will consist of seven episodes (a pull back from the show’s usual 10 hours).

Plus, HBO added that the next season will be shot in Northern Ireland, Spain, and Iceland. It’s been a couple years since the Thrones team used Iceland for significant shooting, having primarily used the location for North of the Wall scenes when Jon Snow was embedded with the Wildlings camp.

Now that winter has arrived on Game of Thrones, executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss felt that the storylines of the next season would be better served by starting production a little later than usual, when the weather is changing,” said Casey Bloys, president, HBO programming. “Instead of the show’s traditional spring debut, we’re moving the debut to summer to accommodate the shooting schedule.”

Benioff and Weiss also recently told the UFC Unfiltered podcast that production was getting a later start this year to film in wintery locations, which prompted speculation that the show’s return date might also be pushed. “We’re starting a bit later because at the end of this season, ‘Winter is here’ — and that means that sunny weather doesn’t really serve our purposes any more. So we kind of pushed everything down the line, so we could get some grim grey weather even in the sunnier places that we shoot.” (Usually the show begins production in July).

The producers have previously told EW they wanted to cap the hit series at 73 hours, with seven episodes next year, and six in an eighth-and-final season. (“We’ve known for several years now how many hours, roughly, we want it to go, it hasn’t changed,” Benioff said.) HBO has not yet confirmed anything about season 8, however, so that part of their plan is not yet official.

Thrones has managed to ratchet up its production values with each season, and having fewer episodes will likely allow more time for the team to polish every hour of the show. The producers have tapped directors Alan Taylor, Jeremy Podeswa, Mark Mylod, and Matt Shakman for next season.

Thrones season 6 broke HBO ratings records once again with episodes averaging more than 23 million viewers, including streaming, repeats and DVR playback The drama was also nominated for 23 primetime Emmys last week, more than any of other series for the third year running.

THEWRAP“You don’t need to have dragons to be a badass in your day-to-day life,” the actress also tells TheWrap.

Emilia Clarke doesn’t have much time to ponder what her life might have been like had she not gotten the role of Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” “I think about a lot of what ifs,” the Emmy-nominated actress told TheWrap, “but I don’t think that!”

For Clarke, landing her breakout role so early in her career has been a fascinating journey. “There was a lot of bright-eyed, bushy-tailedness about the evolution of me within the character and me within the world of the industry,” she said. “I got to learn a lot very quickly, like Daenerys does. The thing about the kind of success the show has seen is that I am unrecognizable without the wig. I’ve been able to watch it from afar and kind of observe it, as opposed to being thrust in it and not being able to breathe. I’ve been lucky.”

Clarke plays the flaxen-haired Mother of Dragons on the hit series, which is now in its sixth season. Showrunners and the network have hinted the show is winding down, and will likely end after Season 8. The role has been a game-changer for the 29-year-old British actress, who landed two Primetime Emmy nominations and opportunities to star in movies big and small, from the 2015 reboot of “The Terminator,” in which she played Sarah Connor, to Thea Sharrock’s recent adaptation of the best-selling tearjerker novel “Me Before You.”
