Ben Mendelsohn felt ‘intimidated’ to work with Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke



Game of Thrones was a decade-defining show; one of the biggest shows to grace the televisions of the 21st century. There’s a reason why actors from the show are held in high regard. Hence when a number of Game of Thrones stars began to make a move to other big franchises, they brought the crowd with them. And sometimes this crowd also includes your new co-stars.

Ben Mendelsohn watched Game of Thrones 4 times

Emilia Clarke became a household name as Game of Thrones’ Khaleesi, Daenerys Targaryen. That’s why when she joined Marvel’s Secret Invasion, it turned a lot of heads. Her co-star Ben Mendelsohn told The Direct, “I’ve watched that GOT thing four times, like, bang, bang, cover-to-cover. I was kind of like, I was nervous, right? I was. And I didn’t know what to expect. And then you made meals and I was just like… And we had to sit by a lake with a lot of ducks, a lot of planes.”

Emilia Clarke loved working with Ben Mendelsohn

Clarke said in the same interview, “I love him. I just love Ben [Mendelsohn]. I love working with Ben. It was so much fun. It was really easy, because obviously we’re playing… I mean, there’s tension all over the shop, but there is obviously a deep familiarity, and shorthand, and knowledge of each other that it’s just so easy and free acting with Ben that it felt… It was just gorgeous. We just had a giggle, didn’t we? We had a good time.”
