ETONLINE – ET called up Westeros newcomer Joe Naufahu, who plays Dothraki leader Khal Moro, to get the exclusive scoop on what’s coming next on our journey to Vaes Dothrak and what Emilia Clarke is really like on the GoT set!
How would you describe Daenerys and Khal Moro’s dynamic moving forward?
Joe Naufahu: It’s strenuous, but at the same time I think there is a lot of respect there at the moment. I think there is going to be some fireworks coming up, but at the moment, it’s all very respectful. There was a lot of natural attraction on Moro’s part, anyway, but once he knew what the situation was, he’s been nothing but a gentleman, and whether that carries on will remain to be seen…. I think his mentality is, ‘Well, if I can’t have you — no one can.’ And conveniently, as part of the Dothraki traditions, he’s like, ‘Since you are a wife of a Khal, and your Khal is dead, you’re going to spend the rest of your time in Vaes Dothrak.’ I think that’s his little way of getting back at her for not giving it up for him.
Dany always finds a way to gets what she wants. Will she be able to charm her way away from Khal Moro?
JN: She’s not too charming. She’s got a big arsenal of weapons at her disposal and she’s not the charming little girl you’d think. Everyone knows that she’s got a big army and I don’t know whether these Dothraki can handle it, but we’ll have to see what happened.
What were you most surprised to learn about Emilia?
JN: Just she’s a bit of a tomboy. I think I learned that she’s got a few brothers and when she was hanging out with the Dothraki, she was just like one of the boys and that was really cool. You always wonder what these people and these actors are like when you read about them in the papers and stuff, and it was cool to know that she’s just a really cool chick. Really down to earth and really funny and goofy and not a prima donna at all.
Did you ever prank Emilia?
JN: No, I didn’t, but I should have! She got me really good. I fell asleep and she decided to smother dessert all over my face and all over my Dothraki outfit and my beard, so I woke up to that one morning at 3 a.m. covered in caramel fudge! It’s every guy’s dream to be covered in caramel fudge by Emilia, right? I was living my fantasy. [Laughs] I shouldn’t have woken up.
A new production still has been released and added to the gallery from yesterday’s episode of Game of Thrones 6×03 Oathbreaker – also updated the other one with the HQ version. HD screencaps will be added later today/tomorrow. Enjoy!
Thanks to Neide, I’ve added HQ digital scans from the July issue of Total Film UK, which went behind the scenes of Emilia’s new movie Me Before You. Enjoy!

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – Daenerys Targaryen might be on her way to join other widows of dead Dothraki lords, but her alter ego Emilia Clarke certainly isn’t staying idle. In addition to her hotly anticipated role in this summer’s Me Before You, Clarke is also set to star in an adaptation of Joe Sharkey’s Above Suspicion alongside Boardwalk Empire alum Jack Huston.
Based on a true story of the first-ever murder conviction for an FBI agent, Above Suspicion will be directed by Phillip Noyce (Salt, The Giver), written by Chris Gerolmo (Mississippi Burning), and produced by Colleen Camp (American Rhapsody). Clarke will play an impoverished woman in Appalachian Kentucky who becomes embroiled with a newly arrived FBI agent (Huston).
Filming is set to begin May 23, with plans to launch international sales at next year’s Cannes Film Festival. (source)
