‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 – Emilia Clarke Says It Will Be “Shocking, Epic and Mental”

Game of Thrones_Season 5 Finale_Mother’s Mercy (2)

‘Game of Thrones’ scored 24 Emmy nominations for Season 5, including Emilia Clarke’s for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama. Clarke found out about her nomination while waiting in the doctor’s office. “All you want to do is just scream and shout, and you have all these people glaring at you thinking, ‘What is that woman on?’,” Clarke told Los Angeles Times. “So, yeah, I had to try and contain my excitement for that moment. But it was pretty brilliant nonetheless.”

Talking to the LA Times, Emilia mentioned that Season 6 will be both “epic” and “mental.” Great! lol 

“I’m saying that obviously because I’ve read the script for next season. Muwah ha ha! I know stories. It’s really exciting.” she said.

Clarke teases what to expect in season 6:

“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.”

On whether her character, Daenerys Targaryen, learned from past mistakes as a ruler:

“I think that she’s definitely on the upwards trajectory of truly learning from the mistakes that she’s made as a ruler. It’s not so much a matter of learning from the mistakes that have gone before her, but it’s a matter of her trusting herself and being confident in the decisions that she’s about to make. And being confident enough to stand next to those decisions and take full responsibility for them.

Clarke spoke about working with a puppet on a pole (stand-in for Drogon):

“Yeah, there’s moments where you think, “I’m going mad. I’m being filmed talking to myself (basically) or talking to a big green polystyrene at the end of a wooden pole. What the hell?” Those days when you’re like, “Ummm … just me.” We’ve got a day of it. Me and the crew get on really well because it’s just me guys. If it goes wrong, I’m pretty sure it’s going to be my fault. It’s either the green sock or me, it’s probably going to be me. Thank goodness [Drogon] speaks the common tongue, that’s all I’m saying. Because if I had to speak to him in Valyrian all the time, that would just be a bit too much.”
