ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – She’s commanded armies and dragons. She’s sparred with slave masters and horse lords. But what Emilia Clarke had to do on the Game of Thrones set last October left her unusually nervous: Sit and have a polite conversation. Sound easy? Not when the other actor is Clarke’s Emmy-winning co-star Peter Dinklage. This was the first time in the show’s five-year history that the two stars have ever shared a scene. Watching their iconic meetup was like witnessing a charmingly awkward first date as the two actors briefly struggled to find their conversational rhythm—complete with flubbed lines, accidentally spilled cups, and more than the usual number of takes as they worked their way through several pages of intricately composed dialogue.
“I’m like: ‘Oh my goodness, I’m talking to that dude on my telly,’” Clarke said. “I’m nervous. Butterflies. This is huge.”
Indeed: Having Dinklage’s Tyrion Lannister meet Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen this season delighted fans, who were universally enthusiastic (for once!) about the showrunners making a narrative move not yet found in George R.R. Martin’s novels. The result was the most anticipated quite-drink chat since Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro got some coffee in Heat. A few minutes after the duo nailed that crucial scene, we talked to the actors about their newfound on-screen partnership.
SUNDAYWORLD.COM – Emilia Clarke’s mum is “badass” and helped her channel the part of ‘Sarach Connor’ in the new ‘Terminator Genisys’ movie.
The 28-year-old revealed that her mum was a big influence on her growing up and the star feels lucky to have been able to play such strong female characters in her career so far.
In an interview with Marie Claire magazine she said: “It’s funny to me to talk about strong, independent women because I’ve got a really badass mum, so I’ve grown up thinking that women weren’t anything other than absolutely equal to men.” She added: “My career so far has been all about playing strong women.”
The ‘Mother of Dragons’ as she is known in the smash-hit series ‘Game of Thrones’, confessed that she really doesn’t want to “f**k up” the role of Sarah Connor and is terrified of being ripped apart by the franchise’s legion of fans if she doesn’t do the character justice.
She said: “You just can’t f**k it up. There’s a million billion boy fan-boys who will literally pull my head off if I do.”
However the star revealed that she was determined to put her stamp on the character.
She added: “I am not playing a copycat – her back story has changed and I’ve got to put my own spin on it.” (source)
