Emilia Clarke looks back on her time on Game of Thrones with Regina Hall

Emilia Clarke had been the centre of attention on Game of Thrones for its decade long run. The show by itself has been a driving force behind changing the television medium, among other things. After such a long and successful run that made her career, Emilia took some time looking back on the journey and the power of Game of Thrones, in Variety’s Actors on Actors conversation with Regina Hall. Read on!

She started off by talking about how she felt in the early days of the show:

“I was just so happy to be employed. It was my first job. I knew that being in an HBO show was amazing, but more than anything, I knew that having a regular paycheck that wasn’t from waiting tables was also amazing.”

She then talked about how she’s changed with her success:

“I feel empowered with female life skills. It’s only the last few seasons of the show where I’ve allowed myself to indulge, ever so slightly, in “Oh, you got really lucky.” As opposed to “Don’t mess it up.” Now I’m able to fully love the textures and the feeling of playing Daenerys.”

As we know, Emilia had brain haemorrhages when she was on the show. She discussed how the show helped her recover:

“I always say that Daenerys literally saved my life, because it puts you in quite the headspace when you’ve had a brain injury. Walking in her shoes, I just put so much more into each season because it really was life or death. I felt so powerfully that she was saving me. I could only see her. That was my single point of focus that allowed me to not think about anything scarier than just getting on set. “

Emilia then discussed finishing the show and taking home props from the show:

“I didn’t take anything, and I deeply regret it, and I’m very annoyed. I’m really hoping that the showrunners give me a dragon. I need my smelly socks. I think I did take those.

Having it come to its completion feels utterly surreal. So much life has happened in the 10 years that I’ve been on the show. I’ve grown into a woman. I was 23. It’s been almost a year in post, and it’s taken me that long to come to terms with it. Where are my dragons? That famous line. Where the hell are they? It felt deeply emotional.”

Emilia Clarke has been the darling of masses for over a decade now. Ever since she started to play the role of Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones she has won fans all over the globe. She has now given the best possible news to those fans. Read on to find out more.

As per Celebretainment, Clarke recently confessed about being single and that she doesn’t like to date actors.

“I am single right now. Dating in this industry is interesting. I have a lot of funny anecdotes, a lot of stuff I can say at a fun dinner. I was [dating actors] but I’m not now. I mean, I wouldn’t say I’ve completely sworn off them, but I do think actor relationships that are successful are few and far between, and you have to have a ton of trust.”

We know that must have been music to million ears!

On the work front, after her Christmas release Last Christmas, Clarke has moved on to doing theatres and she is absolutely loving it. She is currently doing a play called The Seagulls.

“It’s something I care really deeply about, because it’s fucking acting, it’s proper!”

Clarke had shocked her fans months ago when she revealed that she was suffering from a life-threatening illness during the early stages of the show. When asked why she didn’t talk about it earlier. She said:

“Well, you know, then. You know the worries. That people will think your soul, your movement, your voice, who you were. It was nerve-racking to share it, to be honest. It always is, when you make yourself vulnerable. I didn’t want people to think of me as… sick.”

Clearly, Clarke has been through it all and she deserves a partner who understands her better.

Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) wants to do something like The Avengers

Game of Thrones set out a world of fantasy and wonder in front of us. The show mimicked the real world with boldness, ease, and grandeur. It was a big deal for all the actors involved in the HBO TV series. Daenerys Targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke, spearheaded the show as one of the few main characters who survived till the end. Game of Thrones will always be a big part of her, no matter how bittersweet it tasted. But since the show is over, and Emilia is doing different things, could we expect something from her in the genre of fantasy again? The actress recently talked about her desire to do the same during an interview with The Times at the rehearsal space of her upcoming play, The Seagull. Read on!

Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) wants to do something like The Avengers

Emilia discussed her future projects and the possibility of doing something fantasy-filled. “I think, if I did, it would be me having a giggle. I want to do something absolutely stupid or silly, like you know, The Avengers or whatever. Something where I got to have a giggle with mates,” she revealed. There’s no surprise that Clarke would want to do something like that, especially as so many of her fellow GoT mates have already gone their separate superhero-ways.

Kit Harington (Jon Snow) and Richard Madden (Robb Stark) are already working on Marvel’s The Eternals, a key film in phase two of MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe); Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) has starred in one of the Avenger movies, The Avengers: Infinity War; Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) played Jean Grey in the recent X-Men movies; Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) will star in The New Mutants this April, and Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo) is Aquaman!

While there are as many as nine projects in the pipeline for her, she isn’t sure which one would go ahead first; many of them are “dark” in nature. She also talked about the role of fate in her journey. “I very much feel my career is something that’s happened to me; as opposed to the other way round,” she said. It would be great if Emilia’s Avengers wish happened too, and we see her don an avatar of a superhero in a Marvel film. We don’t know which slots are empty for Khaleesi, but a suit would suit her well for sure! We hope Kevin Feige is listening.

The English actress is currently busy with the run of her West End theatre drama, Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull. It’s playing in the Playhouse Theatre, London from March 11 till May 30, 2020.

So, which role do you guys feel Emilia could play in an Avengers or Marvel film? Tell us in the comments below.

Emilia Clarke was annoyed that Jon Snow “got away with murder”

Game of Thrones, Game of Thrones! We will keep talking and talking, and the discussions won’t end. Just what George R.R. Martin could feel about his song. Celebrity interviews reveal so much about the show they worked on that one wonders at the multiple levels actors operate upon. As the show becomes a distant truth in the past, and the cast moves on with other things in life, they could get more and more honest with their opinions about it. Emilia Clarke, our very own (yes, despite the ending) Daenerys Targaryen, opened up a little more about her feelings regarding Game of Thrones and the whirlwind final season while talking to The Times at the rehearsal space of her upcoming West End play, The Seagull.

Emilia Clarke was annoyed that Jon Snow got away with murder

The treatment that the mother of dragons received in the last season of Game of Thrones was something that irked a lot of fans. But what about Emilia? Did it bother her? “Yeah, I felt for her. I really felt for her. And yeah, was I annoyed that Jon Snow didn’t have to deal with something?… He got away with murder – literally;” she let out.

The hateful reaction that the show got from so many people around the globe, has been surprising for a lot of cast members. However, Emilia did take the audience into account when she took stock of it all. “When the show did end, it was like coming out of a bunker. Everything felt really strange. Then obviously to have the backlash it did… I knew how I felt when I first read it, and I tried at every turn, not to consider too much what other people might say, but I did always consider what the fans might think; because we did it for them, and they were the ones who made us successful, so… it’s just polite, isn’t it?” Clarke said.

The first six seasons were a treat for the fans, the build-up, the pace! But the last two seasons came under immense scrutiny, for having seven and six episodes respectively; as opposed to the usual count of ten. This was namely because a good number of people thought that the creators, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, hurried the story to its end; not giving ample time for the character-arcs to mature properly. Emilia echoed this opinion at least partly, “We could have spun it out for a little longer,” she said. The talk about the need for more dialogue in the final season led to her saying, “It was all about the set pieces. I think the sensational nature of the show was, possibly given a huge amount of airtime because that’s what makes sense.”

Furthermore, she reacted whether she was happy about the timing of the ending, “I mean, ‘happy’ is a funny word. It’s a strong word. Again, the show was so big. I was a small cog in a very, very, very big machine”. Being the subject of so much attention as part of Game of Thrones, she said, “Doing a show so many people had opinions about doesn’t serve your creativity at any level.
