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.”

John Bradley says playing Samwell Tarly gave him a stammer

John Bradley says Samwell role gave him a stammer

John Bradley played the character of Samwell Tarly in Game of Thrones for eight seasons, nearly a decade. In a show full of mavericks, geniuses, warriors and dragons, Samwell’s character was perhaps one of the sanest on the show.

Recently while speaking with Giles Paley-Phillips and comedian Jim Daly on the Blank Podcast, he shed some light about his portrayal of Samwell. Bradley said:

“I got into this trap with Sam, I set myself traps, because he had a traumatic childhood and suffered a lot – and it manifested through a stammer and a twitch sometimes”.

Bradley also spoke about how the character of Samwell began affecting his performances outside of Thrones. He added:

Towards the end of that journey, that stammer would turn up in non-Sam acting and I’d do auditions when I’d stammer because it just seemed like the default place that I went to when I acted”.

Bradley found himself so much into the character that, at times his co-stars had to politely push him to speak quicker. He recalled an incident with Kit Harington:

In one scene I came in first with Kit Harington and in the nicest way he said to me “can you come in a bit quicker?” so I can react a bit quicker and I was like “I can’t, I just can’t.

As lovely as the crew were, they assumed it was because I had forgotten my lines. It took me a while to get out of it and it went away over time.” 

Well, John Bradley sure seems like a perfectionist doesn’t he? It almost seems fitting that he played the most studious character of them all in a show full of larger than life characters.

Emilia Clarke reveals she had a hard time with Daenerys’ final Dothraki speech

Game of Thrones behind the scenes bits have been floating around on the Internet these days, since the disc sets for the full series hit the shelves. A new bit now has Emilia Clarke discussing how her final speech in Dothraki was “hell”. Read on!

Entertainment Tonight recently reported about the “Duty is the Death of Love” featurette from disc sets, and Emilia discussed her last speech as Daenerys:

“I knew that speech was going to be really important, and I spent a huge amount of time learning it. And for the first time in my whole Game of Thrones career, I got that word perfect.”

She continued to talk about how it was difficult to remember the language:

“I’m being so brutally honest here — I was in hell learning that speech. This pretend language was literally eating me up. I couldn’t do it. And then, magic happened. I woke up in the morning, went on, and it all came out. I was probably fighting not what I was fighting, but what Dany was doing.”

Well, it definitely must have been hard, watching her character give everything up that quick. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Kristofer Hivju wants a Tormund and Brienne spin-off

Game of Thrones has had a lot good on screen pairings through the run of the show, but there have also been a few ships that never became pairs. One of them was Tormund and Brienne, the subject of many a memes, but sadly we didn’t see enough of it on the show. Kristofer Hivju, however, is all for a Tormund-Brienne spin-off. Read on!

Hivju, who played Tormund, was recently at the UK disc set release event in London, and did a Q&A session, reports Fandom. When asked what he thinks about a Tormund-Brienne spin-off, he replied:

“I’m up for it.”

He added that he would like it to be a rom-com set at Castle Black, with the pair:

“…trying to run it together; it’s 19 minutes per episode.”

He’s clearly thought it through. Now that he’s said it, it honestly wouldn’t be the worst thing to follow up the timeline of the show. He then talked about how Khal Drogo was his favourite character:

“[My favourite scene] was Jason Momoa’s speech in the tent before he kills Daenerys’s brother. He’s just ranting and he’s going all the way.”

Well, we would definitely love that spin-off, and we bet it would fly well with the fans. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
