‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Emilia Clarke On Season 6: ‘It’s Mental; It’s Epic!’

Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke had a hugely successful year that culminated in an impressive 24 Emmy nominations with one of those nominations naming Clarke specifically. Emilia was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama, which she learned while seated in the waiting room of her doctor’s office.


“I was at the doctor’s waiting to go in. It was a very embarrassing moment. There’s a lovely British girl waiting in the doctor’s office, and you’ve got the best news ever, and you’re very excited and a bit loud on the phone…So, yeah, I had to try and contain my excitement for that moment. But it was pretty brilliant nonetheless.”

Looking forward to the new Game of Thrones season might seem unimaginable after so much recognition for the past year, but Ms. Clarke didn’t bask in that glory too long. Emilia confessed that she was far too eager to learn what the Game of Thrones writers had in store for her.

“Oooooh there’s so much in store for her. I’m saying that obviously because I’ve read the script for next season. Muwah ha ha! I know stories. It’s really exciting. Next season, I’ve said this before, but there’s a lot of season where you need to (rightly so) kind of need to set the scene. And you have a couple of episodes where you’re like, ‘OK, feeding information, I get it. We’re finding out about this person. And we know about that person. And oh, there’s that person.’ But this season coming up, that we’re about to film, there’s none of that. It’s just go, go, go, go. Shocking moment to shocking moment. Epic moment to epic moment. It’s mental; it’s epic. And definitely Dany’s a part of it.”

Speaking of Dany, Emilia thinks that the Game of Thrones character has learned from her past mistakes and that the new Game of Thrones episodes will find her trusting herself and making decisions with more self-confidence. Emilia recalls the scene in the previous Game of Thrones season where her character was forced to give up the ring and Clarke can’t deny the wisdom in making that choice.

“She loved that ring, but she sacrificed it because there were people coming to find her. I think there’s so much yet to come with Daenerys; she’s very exciting,” the Game of Thrones actress said.

Emilia Clarke wouldn’t give many details, even though she has read the new script for Game of Thrones, so fans will have to wait and see what exactly is in store for Daenerys.

The Game of Thrones season premiere is scheduled to air in April 2016 on HBO.
