Emilia Clarke reacts to the news of Game of Thrones prequel getting cancelled

Nobody likes it when plans get cancelled. The situation is on a whole different level when it’s Game of Thrones stuff that gets canned. There’s a good chance that you’ve heard about the cancellation of Game of Thrones’ highly-anticipated prequel starring Naomi Watts, informally dubbed The Long Night. It was set thousands of years into the ancient history of Westeros. The pilot had apparently been shot. But HBO decided to call it off right before it also announced a full series order of another prequel, House of the Dragon based on George R.R. Martin’s most recent work, Fire & Blood.

However, the cancellation is going to bring in some pretty strong reactions from fans and celebrities alike. Emilia Clarke, who played the famed mother of dragons on the show, reacted to this news while talking to Entertainment Tonight at the New York City premiere of her latest film, Last Christmas. Read on!

When she was asked if she had heard about the scrapping of the prequel, she said:

“I just heard that today. I am not really too sure (of how it happened). I think it’s just reflective of the fact that it’s tough to make people go and see stuff; to get stuff made. 

Maybe it will be reincarnated at some point. But if it wasn’t meant to happen now then I’m sure it’s because they knew it wouldn’t be as perfect as it should have been.”

The interviewer also asked her about the reunion with Game of Thrones co-stars Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) and Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo) on her birthday; to which she responded:

“It was really good. We are all really good friends still. So, I had a birthday party and I was like, who’s in town! I mean, I am best friends with Kit’s wife Rose (Leslie), they live literally two doors down so I see them on the regular, but Jason was in town. So, yeah, it was magical!” 

The British actress even jested about sharing on-screen love interest with the two handsome men, saying, “I’ve done very well!”

Her next cinematic outing is Last Christmas where she plays Kate, a young woman with an affinity for bad luck who goes through a near-death experience. Emilia has earlier had to undergo surgeries owing to two life-threatening brain aneurysms (a bulge in an artery). A while ago, she was brave enough to come out into the open and talk about it. Her character in Last Christmas shares similar yet even daunting circumstances. So did she draw from her personal experiences?

“Yeah, it was hard not to. We both had medical traumas around the same time in our lives. So there’s a huge amount of Kate’s truth that reflected my own truth as well. We deal with them in slightly different ways. My liver is still intact…but there was some crossover there for sure.”

Paul Feig has directed the film. Last Christmas hits the theatres on 8th of November. The Game of Thrones sensation also spoke about her equation and chemistry with acclaimed actress Emma Thompson, who plays her mother in Last Christmas,

“She’s absolutely my soulmate. I am so blessed and so grateful for Emma Thompson being in my life.”

So, Mhysa seems quite optimistic about the whole thing around the prequels. But this is just among the first of many reactions that are going to come our way. Let’s hope House of the Dragon brings in all the necessary ammo to quench everyone’s thirst for more ice and fire. What do you guys think? Tell us in the comments below.

Emilia Clarke calls Game of Thrones Season 8 backlash flattering, again

Game of Thrones stars have been faced with questions about their reactions about the ending of the show, and they don’t seem to stop. Emilia Clarke, who played Daenerys, has had a very positive response before, calling it flattering, and now she’s called it fragile again, in a recent interview. Read on!

Emilia has previously called previously called the Season 8 backlash “profoundly flattering”, and that seems to have become her go-to answer now, when asked about it. She was recently on This Morning to promote her new film, Last Christmas, where she discussed the backlash that Game of Thrones Season 8 received, repeating her previous comments:

“On every level, it’s just profoundly flattering that people genuinely cared that much and they were with us for that long and that they really, truly believed in it.”

She continued:

“I don’t read anything online really because it doesn’t help my brain, but largely speaking I think people are being really kind about Daenerys and Mother Dragon and backing me up, so that’s lovely.

I don’t think there’s an ending that anyone could’ve written. No matter how many signatures were on any bit of paper, you just can’t and that is really just so flattering.”

Well, what do you guys think? Was your backlash supposed to be flattering? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Would love to play James Bond in case of a gender switch, says Emilia Clarke

Game of Thrones stars have a lot of opportunities going forward, because of how successful the show was. While Emilia Clarke, who played Daenerys, recently said she doesn’t want to do big franchise projects anymore, there seems to be one franchise that could entice her. Read on!

In a recent interview with Empire, Emilia was asked if she would like to step into the role of James Bond, and she had a very positive response:

“Yeah! Of course! Hell to the yeah.”

She continued:

“James Bond is one of those franchises where it’s never not cool. You could literally make the naffest James Bond in the world and it would still be cool.”

Emilia also reflected on the luxuries that her part on Game of Thrones has fetched her, and how it has motivated her to launch her own production house:

“I’ve had the good fortune of being in this incredible show with this incredible character. And, my goodness, if I were to get stereotyped as the mother of dragons, I could ask for worse. It’s really quite wonderful.”

She went on:

“But what it’s left me with — after 10 years of seeing that, and being a part of that, and of doing quite big movies in my hiatuses and all of those things — is a yearning for a different sort of creative ownership.”

What do you guys think? Would you like to see Emilia as Bond? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Here’s where Emilia Clarke thinks Drogon went at the end of Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones ended with a bad fate for Emilia Clarke‘s Daenerys Targaryen. We saw Drogon fly off with his mother’s corpse, and we have since then had a question: where did Drogon fly off to? Well, Emilia has a theory about that. Read on!

In the series finale of Game of Thrones, we had to see Jon Snow betray Daenerys, and Drogon, late to the party, rage for a while and then simply fly off with a dead Daenerys. Emilia Clarke recently did a lie detector interview with Vanity Fair, which makes for a pretty great watch. Of course, she discussed Daenerys and her fate at the end of Thrones. Watch the full 18 minute video, below:

She was asked about who her favourite dragon of the three dragon children, to which she replied:

“Drogon is kind of like, he’s my oldest boy, who was the first, really. When the three of them came out, I think he came out first.”

She was then asked if she knew where Drogon was headed, to which she had the best response:

“I’d like to think he went to Hawaii. I know there is a specific place where dragons go [that’s in the books]. Otherwise he’s just roaming the seas. Crying.”

Well, if only Bran the Broken could verify this. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, below!
