Game of Thrones was sometimes too overwhelming for Emilia Clarke (Daenerys)




Emilia Clarke is without a doubt one of the best actors on Game of Thrones. The 36-year-old actress, best known for her portrayal as Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, has recently joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in the new series Secret Invasion. Reminiscing on her time as Khaleesi, the actress recently admitted that Game of Thrones was sometimes too much for her.

Game of Thrones would sometimes make Emilia Clarke sad

Clarke talked about dealing with her Game of Thrones fame when she had two aneurysms and lost her father with the Los Angeles Times in a recent interview, “All of that happening while Game of Thrones was happening, it sometimes could be very confusing. There were times when I was really sad on that show, just simply because I was a young woman in her 20s.” 

“It’s not a shabby role to be associated with [Daenerys],” she said. “Daenerys, I hope, is associated with a certain caliber of work, so lucky me that that’s the case. As long as people don’t ask me about nudity.”

Why Emilia Clarke joined Marvel’s Secret Invasion?

Clarke was starstruck by the cast of Secret Invasion, which later turned out to be a big factor in her joining the MCU. She said, “The cast is ridiculous. Olivia Colman, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Don Cheadle. I was like ‘where do I sign?’”

“The stigma is that people don’t do any acting in these shows and then you’re like ‘well, then why are they asking all these great actors to do it, and why are they saying yes?’”
