Emilia Clarke who plays the role of Daenerys Targaryen in 'Game Of Thrones' recently made some comments on the ending of the series, and the fans are now confused.
HBO's final season of 'Game Of Thrones' is coming out this year and the fans are super excited to know it is going to end. The series has develo[ped a huge fan following over the years since its release and each of its characters have its own supporters. Now, as the release date of the final season gets closer, the fans cannot help but try to figure out what they expect to see.
Emilia Clarke who plays the role of Daenerys Targaryen recently made some comments on the ending of the series, and the fans are now confused. The character has become really popular as the storyline has progressed in her favor in the past seasons. Now her fans want to know whether she will survive the epic battle with the Night King and his army of the dead.
The season will begin with Daenerys meeting Sansa Stark, played by Sophie Turner for the first time. In an interview with Harper's Bazaar, she spoke about how her character is going to feel as the story goes forward. “She starts feeling pretty cocksure and confident, and then stuff happens,” Clarke says. She further spoke about how different her character has become as compared to how she was in Season 1 of the series.
The actress pointed out in the interview that Michele Clapton made sure Danerys's clothing "reflects" what is going on in the story at that moment. “Every single piece that I put on made sense for the scene that I was in, and made sense with the place that the character’s in at that time,” she said. “There’s a real through-line for this particular season, there’s a real arc and I feel like fans, like hardcore fans, will clock what’s happening within the reflection of the clothing.”
Clarke called the ending of Daenerys journey as "the mother of all releases". “It was just the metaphorical undoing of the bra, except it’s like a 10-year experience,” she says. Now we are not sure what exactly she means by that, it could signify a mental or an emotional release. In the interview, Emilia spoke about how it felt to meet Sansa Stark as Daenerys for the first time.
It's really surreal. I mean, you play into what it feels like for the character as well, because it's new and it's odd, and you're coming into someone else's turf and you've got a lot of actors that you know really well, who were like, "This is our home." Then you come in and you're like, "I know this only from the television; I've never been in this space here before in my life."
"But also I must admit for the character, I felt it. I felt with every one of those moments that obviously the show is packed to the gills with. I felt for her. I was like, “Yes! Here we are! We're in, we're speaking with Sansa, we are that much closer.” It felt great. Very, very exhilarating," added Clarke. She further spoke about the one big lesson that she learned from being on the show for so many years and growing up with it for some time.
"You're really good at remembering lines [laughs]. Oh heavens, I've learned how lucky I am to have the show. I've definitely learned how the people you work with can become such a family and such a support system, and to lean on them when needed because it's a singularly unique trait that our show has had because you don't normally get that much time with people. But more than anything, trusting myself and taking props for when it goes well, which I'm not very good at, " said Emilia.
The series is set to release on April 14 and we will finally get to know the fate of Daenerys Targaryen. Daenerys is unstoppable and really confident about what she wants but what happens after she finds out the true identity of Jon Snow, who she recently slept with? A lot would change after she finds out his true identity of him being her nephew, as the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen. The fact that Jon is the true heir to the Iron throne might shake her confidence.
Emilia had spoken about how much she would miss being on the show and how much pressure she felt on her when she was playing such a powerful role. “Game of Thrones is probably the hardest shooting I'll do, because it is so physical and you're in a corset!” she emphasizes. “You've got the physical places of where you are, the weather is so extreme, and the hours are really long and there's so much tension in each character towards the end. There's so much tension in the room, and you're concentrating so hard. It's strenuous.”
