Emilia Clarke accepts fans were ‘really upset' by Game of Thrones finale

It has been 2 years, and it is still the hot topic of several online debates amongst fan communities across the internet. The controversial final season of Game of Thrones. Some of the fans were so disappointed that they petitioned for a rewrite of the final season. Some actors, like Charles Dance, even agreed to sign it. Even the mother of dragons understands and agrees with the viewers. Actress Emilia Clarke, who played Daenerys Targaryen on the show, was especially sad about the downfall of her character.

Clarke told Josh Horowitz on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, “I get it. I get why people were p***ed. I totally get it. But me being the actor, you can’t do justice to the character that you’ve poured your blood, sweat and tears into for a decade without getting on the same page. Do you know what I mean? So like, I’m not going to be there being like, “Fine, I’ll do the scene, whatever. So p***ed.”

Emilia explained that as an actor, regardless of where the story leads, ‘you have to turn up’.

“You have to turn up and you have to… because why? Because you’re doing it for you and you’re doing it for her and you’re doing it for the show and you’re doing it for the storytelling. So, I’m an actor. I get given a story and I need to tell that story,” she said.

Emilia is currently writing her own comics, and hopefully, she’ll give an ending to this character she had hoped for Dany. Do you agree with Emilia? Talk to us in the comments below!

Emilia Clarke accepts fans were ‘really upset' by Game of Thrones finale

Game of Thrones Season 8 wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea. The season finale divided the fan base into two. One was satisfied with the ending, the other demanded a season remake. Some blamed the absence of George R. R. Martin’s next instalment of books. While some blamed the showrunners’ piqued interest to launch a Star Wars feature film trilogy with Disney’s Lucasfilm. Even the show’s alum Emilia Clarke gets why fans were f**king p***ed about the final episode. After all, she cared deeply about her character, Daenerys, who wasn’t treated well by the showrunners. She once again accepted the fact that the finale disappointed a lot of fans who were expecting a lot more in a recent interview.

Emilia was asked about the fan reaction to the ending during a recent appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan. She replied, “Whatever ending we were ever gonna come up with — like, let’s say that made us all hairdressers — everyone still would’ve been really upset, because people joyfully didn’t want it to end at all. So I think any ending would have upset everybody. But our ending really, really did seem to really upset [people].”

The Mother of Dragons makes it pretty clear that she understands that people are deeply hurt, and so is she. But she seems to have come to terms with it. Have you? Tell us in the comments below!

Hannah Waddingham does not regret doing Game of Thrones’ Waterboarding scene

Gasping for breath, drowning in water is one of the most common nightmares people experience in their dreams. One Game of Thrones actress had to go through that in real, on set, for an excruciating 10 hours. Hannah Waddingham, who played Septa Unella on the show, was strapped to a table, to be tortured by Lena Headey’s Cersei Lannister. She described her harrowing experience in a recent episode of Collider’s Ladies Night.

She described filming the scene as her second most dreadful experience, right after childbirth. However, she’d gladly do it again, she validated her point speaking to The Talk in a recent interview.

What I said at the end of it that wasn’t picked up on, as I would 100% do it again,” she shared on the program. “Because being given the chance to be on something like Game Of Thrones, you have to go there.”

Hannah added, “That’s why the show is so magnificent, because it brings everybody out, it takes everyone to the nth degree of their emotions. And that’s why it was so successful because you believe it, you believe the gore and you believe the tragedy and the drama.”

She also talked about how her character, Septa Unella’s fate on the show was different from the original script. What do you think of the waterboarding scene? Talk to us in the comments below!

She said, “The crew is a hundred strong. The artistry involved is mind-blowing. The sets that have been created are fucking gorgeous, and the costumes. Down to the tiny prop that you hold in your hands, there’s just so much thought that goes into it and so much history as well. It’s amazing to work on a film, a TV show, or anything where everyone is just so passionate about it.”
