ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – So Dany finally left Meereen!
Since marrying Khal Drogo, her one aim has been to get back to Westeros. But, oh bugger, I gotta learn how to rule. Oh god, we gotta get here first. Oh f—, I might as well rule this city. Ah, a revolt – bugger! Dammit, now I’ve got to go over there! No more slaves! Done! Brilliant! She’s got the dragons. She’s got the manpower. She’s got the ships thanks to the Iron Born. So there’s nothing else to do. She’s got to go now. Iron Throne!
And she’s got the confidence now too …
Exactly. She’s got the balls. And she also knows she’s got to go forward to help Meereen. She’s got to sit on the Iron Throne for the ripple effect. She knows she can do rule better than anybody else.
How does it feel to know Dany is finally going for it – unless there’s a storm at sea and all your ships sink.
Don’t even suggest that! You might give them ideas. I’m going to go back and see my mates, so Emilia feels really happy, I get to come home. It’s amazing. But the idea [Dany] might might not see [Jorah Mormont actor Iain Glen and Daario Naharis actor Michiel Huisman] again, that idea suddenly makes the show feel like it has a finite ending and that’s really sad. So there’s the excitement of getting there and being with everyone else and also being like, “Yo! Other queens! Bye!”
Speaking other queens, you have to think Cersei doesn’t stand a chance. You got dragons, the Unsullied and the Dothraki. She can barely control anybody around her aside from a gang of street kids.
I mean, yeah. That’s what I’m saying. If we talk about this: basically, I’ve got ships, I’ve got manpower, I’ve got dragons that breathe fire, and I apparently cannot be killed. I don’t even have an attractive man who wants to take his shirt off anywhere near me now, so there are no distractions. Though we have yet to see [Peter Dinklage] without his clothes on. The only thing missing is Jorah. He’s gotta come back. I said I can’t rule the Seven Kingdoms without him … But as with Game of Thrones, you know when your character is looking good, that’s when you know you’re not safe. Because [the writers are] all, “Oh, do you like her? We’ll kill her!”
Speaking of men taking off their tops, it seems pretty likely now that Dany will meet Jon Snow at some point, right? Fire and Ice?
Yup, but I just don’t know. Those rumors have never been substantiated within the Game of Thrones circle. It’s never been said. So I don’t know. I could kill him. He could kill me. He could be dead before we even meet. I could be dead before we even meet. Arya could kill us both! You never know! Anything’s possible. All I know is winter is coming … and I’m bringing the heat!
Sunday’s finale of Game of Thrones was EPIC! I loved it so much! Glad we got some answers – finally – and glad Danerys is finally going to conquer her throne (and Jon??). HD screencaps and some production stills from Winds of Winter have now been added to the gallery. Be sure to check them out as Emilia looks so great and badass! Enjoy :)
HD screencaps together with some production stills from Sunday’s episode of Game of Thrones 6×09 Battle of the Bastards have now been added to the gallery! The episode was – in my opinion – the best of all the series so far! I really really loved it, and Dany is a badass like always! (Donìt you all ship her and Yara??) Enjoy the update, looking forward to the season finale!
Emilia is featured in the June 22 issue of TheWrap. HQ digital scans from the magazine have now been added to the gallery, be sure to check them! Enjoy :)
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.”
