Actress Emilia Clarke is best known for her role on HBO’s Game of Thrones as Daenerys Targaryen, Queen of the Andals and the Rhoynar and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Princess of Dragonstone, Breaker of Chains, Mhysa, and Mother of Dragons. Now the actress can add Emmy nominee to her titles. EW chatted with the London-born actress on the phone this morning about the big news.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Congratulations on the nomination! How did you find out this morning?
Emilia Clarke: It’s genuinely the weirdest thing. 6 a.m. rolls around, and my alarm in the hotel went off, and I definitely didn’t set it — definitely, definitely. So I went into a frenzy, throwing everything I could at all of the electrical appliances in the room trying to make whatever noise was going on stop. Then I saw my phone and I was like, Ah! Oh my goodness, hopefully the show got nominated because I had a sleepless night praying Dan and David would get nominated for writing. Because I just think they deserve it so much. So it took a couple of phone calls for me to actually hear from my publicist that I myself was also nominated. [Laughs] And then I cried. [Laughs] It’s all quite too much to handle.
How are you feeling now?
For me, the nomination is literally the end of the line. It’s amazing. I’m so, so, so happy. I owe absolutely everything to HBO. I’m just happy that the show itself got recognized. It’s just wonderful.
The show, this season especially, features dramatic changes for its characters. Talk about Daenerys’ arc and where she is by the end of season 3.
Throughout the series, she literally started as a mute, terrified princess with a sort of vague idea that she should be on the throne. Three seasons in, and she is the mother of three fast-growing dragons and the queen of an army of over 10,000. I think it shows the power of what women can do. [Laughs] And hopefully by the end of the series, she’ll be stuck atop the Iron Throne. I’m still holding out for that.
What scene this season was most challenging or fun to film? Daenerys has some pretty badass moments.
Episode four, the getting of the army, the taking of the Unsullied army, was just as much fun to film as it was to watch. It took two days to film, and we had so many extras there. To turn around and shout in Valyrian was quite an empowering experience. Even after take 22, I was like, Yup. Still cool. I’m still shouting.
In a statement following the interview, Clarke added, “Yer chomoe anhaan. Jin ha Khalaan, shekh ma shieraki anni.” For those not fluent in Dothraki, it translates to: “You do honor to me. This is for the Khal — my sun and stars.”

Also Game of Thrones received other 16 nominations including Outstanding Drama Series, you can check the complete list here.
James Franco has dropped out as director and star of the indie drama “Garden of Last Days” just two weeks before production was scheduled to begin, citing “creative differences.”
Deadline reports Franco departed the project over disagreement with financier Millennium Films. The dispute reportedly involves Franco’s choices for certain crew positions.
“Last Days” is an adaptation of a novel by Andre Dubus III (“House of Sand and Fog”) that follows three interwoven stories exploring the “seamy underside of American life.” “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke was set to play the lead role of a stripper with a 3-year-old daughter.
Deadline reports “Garden of Last Days” is not likely to be so lucky and production plans are expected to be shut down entirely.
Even this year Game of Thrones will have a panel at the SDCC! And of course, as usual, Emilia is attending!!
