Emilia Clarke is one of the most familiar faces from the vast cast of Game of Thrones. Though she is famous mostly for her role ‘Daenerys Targaryen’ on the show, she has played major characters in various projects over the past few years. Emilia portrayed Qi’ra in the Star Wars spinoff Solo: A Star Wars Story. Clarke has responded to the return of her Solo character to the Star Wars universe, admitting it means so much.

Emilia played Qi’ra in 2018’s Solo: A Star Wars Story, and fans have been questioning if we could see her back after the Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters comic book hinted at Qi’ra’s potential return. However, as of right now, it sounds like there are no plans for the character to pop up on the big screen.

“I have heard nothing. Absolutely nothing,” Emilia said on the Happy Sad Confused podcast. “I loved Qi’ra. Loved her, really, really did. I loved Han, I loved the story, I loved the people, I loved the experience,” she said.

“It was one of those ones where if you know too much about a celebrity, and you go and watch that movie and you’re just thinking about how many kids Angelina Jolie has,” she said of the project. “Everyone went in knowing what our dirty laundry looked like. And you couldn’t separate that gossip from the overall experience,” she added, but noted she was “so over the moon that people are posthumously enjoying it”.

Comic books own a massive fandom today, thanks to the various TV and movie adaptations we’ve seen in the past few decades. The superhero genre practically rules the entertainment industry right now, prime examples being MCU and DCEU. Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke has recently signed up for a role in Marvel’s Secret Invasion. The actress is keen on exploring more comic book universes. She will now co-write a comic herself.

Clarke will write her first superhero comic book series M.O.M.: Mother of Madness from Image Comics this July. And she gave a subtle nod to the fact her character is inspired by Daenerys from Game of Thrones.

Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, she said, “It didn’t come out of nowhere. I wanted Maya to be a single mother; I wanted that first and foremost,” Clarke tells The Hollywood Reporter. “So I’m not going to say I’m Jenny from the Block, but it’s an acknowledgement of how I’m able to give this beautiful fanbase this other thing that I did because they supported me and gave me the props when I was doing [Game of Thrones].”

Her comic book characters design is very much based on Daenerys as well. Are you excited about Emilia Clarke’s first comic book series? Talk to us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones celebrities are seizing some of the biggest roles in the entertainment industry out there. Many of them have been associated with the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Game of Thrones alum Kit Harington and Richard Madden are about to make their debut in the Marvel Universe with the upcoming movie Eternals. Their Game of Thrones co-star Emilia Clarke is the next in line for a role in a Marvel movie. And she’s nervous she might accidentally tell the audience about it.

Emilia Clarke has been assigned to MCU’s upcoming project Secret Invasion. Samuel L Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn’s characters are the only ones confirmed right now. In her interview for the Happy Sad Podcast, she discussed her uncomfortable position.

The first people I spoke to with Marvel after getting the role was their security team,” she recalled. “I actually live in fear that something is going to happen, and I’m going to say something, and they’ll get upset.

“But, I play a character that I’m super into everything about it.”

Clarke is obviously referring to one specific actor, notoriously famous for leaking Marvel movie secrets. Yes, you guessed it right, MCU’s current Spiderman Tom Holland. There’s a reason why he had no clue about what was going on while walking into the set of Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame. Clarke fears she might become a blabbermouth and spurt secrets like Tom Holland.

Game of Thrones has often been described as the biggest blockbuster show of the past decade. The show was based on the highly popular novel series of George R. R. Martin – A Song of Ice and Fire. However, the series suffered during its end stage, mainly because of the absence of source material from the author. Many blame Martin for the controversial eighth season, for his output has been rather slow since the past few years. In fact, fans have been waiting for his next book ‘Winds of Winter’ for nearly a decade now. And it seems the veteran writer regrets the fact that he’s so behind.

In an interview with the WTTW, Martin said, “Looking back, I wish I’d stayed ahead of the books,” he said.

When they began [Game of Thrones], I had four books already in print, and the fifth one came out just as the series was starting in 2011. I had a five-book head start, and these are gigantic books … I never thought they would catch up with me, but they did. They caught up with me and passed me! That made it a little strange, because now the show was ahead of me and the show was going in somewhat different directions. I’m still working on the book, but you’ll see my ending when that comes out.”

Martin also said that he thinks that the first, House of the Dragon, will “probably be on next spring” — and the next, long-awaited book in this series, The Winds of Winter.
