Game of Thrones Actress Emilia Clarke Discusses Her Character, Fans and Fantasy
Game of Thrones Actress Emilia Clarke Discusses Her Character, Fans and Fantasy

Game of Throne actress Emilia Clarke has been discussing how her own development has matched her character’s.

When asked what similarities Emilia can see between her character and herself, the blonde actress admitted that the biggest shared trait was naivity:

“We both started out as naïve young girls with plenty to learn. Season one was sometimes petrifying and terrifying and horrifying. Dany was with me and helped me to step away from myself. I feel like I’ve learned a huge amount. I think we’re similar in that we try not to make the same mistakes twice. Not to sound too much like an obnoxious actor, but the character never really leaves me. I’ve read all the books many times over, so I sometimes find it easier being on set, because it can be hard to get out of character.”

Fantasy fans are a notoriously obsessive lot, but Emilia is relieved that she hasn’t had any crazy marriage proposals yet. She told the Telegraph:

“Nobody’s proposed yet, no. Nobody’s gone down on one knee. But my biggest aim in the first season was to keep the fans happy. I knew that Dany was a loved and hated character in the books, and I wanted to be true to everyone’s imagination of her while also being true to my interpretation. If I’ve managed that, then fantastic. But I don’t really look at stuff online. At the start I was looking and found something which wasn’t very nice, so now I leave it all. If there’s something that people are desperately happy with or unhappy with, you tend to hear about it anyway.”

When asked how life has changed for her, she admits that her life is now unrecognisable in comparison to pre-Game of Thrones:

“Game of Thrones has opened doors that were never there before. But it can be dangerous to see it in those terms, I think. It’s best to take it as it comes and work as hard as you can, and hopefully the other things fall into place.”

Emilia also said that the actors talk to George R R Martin, the author of the series, whenever they like:

“We can talk to him whenever we want. but on the whole he lets us get on with it. If we were doing anything really wrong I think he’d let us know, but he’s happy I think. But at the moment he’s writing so we don’t want to disturb him.”

Heartthrob Chris Hemsworth has said that Thor 2 could learn from the HOB series, Game of Thrones.

The 28-year-old actor has revealed that he is looking forward to working with director Alan Taylor, who has penned a number of episodes of the hit series, on Thor 2.

“[Game of Thrones] had a real mythical element to it, but it was rooted in such an organic and tangible world,” Hemsworth told MTV News. “I think Asgard could really benefit from that sort of a grittier, aged feel to it and not so ethereal,” he continued.

“The big thing about the comics for me was the origin story. Thor was interesting, but what I found more fascinating was the other worlds and realms that you can be taken off into.”

Thor 2 is currently scheduled for release on November 15, 2013.

Game of thrones star Emilia Clarke has recently been discussing how the hit show has effected her life: “I’m really oblivious to it, because I look so different,” said Emilia, whose natural brunette hair color makes her look quite dissimilar from her character, the white-haired, royal exile Daenerys Targaryen. Still, people do occasionally recognize her: A woman in a department store in Los Angeles was too stunned to get in the elevator when she saw that Emilia was in it. “Khaleesi?” the fan asked.

Emilia Clarke has made a huge name for herself as the Mother of Dragons in hit TV series Game of Thrones, but she sounds relieved that she hasn’t really had to deal with the pitfalls of fame since the debut of her HBO fantasy.

“I’m really oblivious to it, because I look so different,” said Emilia, whose natural brunette hair color makes her look quite dissimilar from her character, the white-haired, royal exile Daenerys Targaryen. Still, people do occasionally recognize her: A woman in a department store in Los Angeles was too stunned to get in the elevator when she saw that Emilia was in it. “Khaleesi?” the fan asked.

“And then the doors closed, and the lift kept going up,” Emilia said with a laugh. “Stuff like that happens, and there’s also, ‘You kind of look like that girl from “Game of Thrones.”’”

Given that she prefers a low-key lifestyle, it’s perhaps good that the film role she just finished also has the actress wearing things that make it unlikely that fans will recognize her. In “Spike Island,” Emilia plays one of a group of early ’90s Stone Roses fans, and wears baggy overalls and that era’s puffy, fluffy hair.

She’s a huge fan of the band, but as she noted, “The ’90s were really just bad for fashion and hair.” The movie, which doesn’t have a release date yet, just wrapped a couple of weeks ago, and at the end of 2011 Emilia finished filming her “Game of Thrones” scenes, which were mostly shot in Croatia. Once again, she typically worked far away from the rest of the cast. This season, Dany is across the Narrow Sea, trying to keep her Khalasar (her Dothraki tribe) alive and ultimately trying to get back to Westeros, the land that the Targaryens used to rule.

Back in the real world, the London-based actress sees the rest of the cast whenever she can. “All of the boys, I see regularly because we’re all in London together, so that’s really nice,” she said. “A special bond was made with the whole of the cast from the beginning, when we were all a bit more together, and I don’t think that’s really going to go away.”

Emilia Clarke: ‘What to expect next from Game of Thrones…’
Emilia Clarke: ‘What to expect next from Game of Thrones…’

There’s no denying that the medieval series, Game of Thrones, has captured the hearts of fantasy-lovers everywhere, so it’s no surprise that in the run-up to the launch of season two earlier this month, Facebook was abuzz with local status updates eagerly anticipating its arrival.

One of the shows more popular characters, 25 year old English actress Emilia Clarke, spoke to timeoutdubai.com about what we can expect next from her character. Emilia said: “When we last saw Dany she was in this borderline spiritual place. Season two sees her crashing back down to a very practical earth and trying to deal with the realities she’s been given. She’s dealing with the fact that she’s a woman in a man’s world – that’s quite shocking when you think about all the things she has to deal with, because there’s no Drogo now, there’s no man to hide behind. I think she’s feeling a huge amount of pressure – heavy is the head that wears the crown.   

Emilia also spoke about how the show has changed her life. She told the website: “Absolutely everything in my life has completely transformed. All I’m trying to do is stay true to myself and realise that any hype is all froth and bubble at the end of the day. I never look at the internet – I can barely even look at myself on screen – so I keep a big distance from it.”

Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke, who plays the character Daenerys Targaryen in the hit HBO fantasy television series, has revealed how she won her role on the show. Emilia admitted that it was actually fairly simply and all she really did was audition.

Clarke explained, “My goodness, how I became involved with the show… auditioned!? That’s pretty much it. Yeah my agent called with the audition, I went in and by the time I’d got the second audition I’d read the book and was an official fan and a geek! I was just crazy in love with it.”
 
She added, “So happily by the time I got to L.A. for the screen tests they said yes. It really wasn’t very long it was probably over about a month I think. Yeah it was two auditions in London and the screen test in L.A. and that was it.”
 
Emilia Clarke also admitted that, if she was not working as one of the stars of Game of Thrones, she would probably still be working one of her three jobs, either in a bar, at a call centre or working as a waitress. However, she would still be pursuing her dream of becoming an actress.
 
Game of Thrones continues on HBO every Sunday before airing in the UK on Sky Atlantic on Mondays.
Emilia Clarke to leave Game of Thrones
Emilia Clarke to leave Game of Thrones

English actress Emilia Clarke has become a household name around the world, thanks to her portrayal of the character Daenerys Targaryen in the hit HBO fantasy television series Game of Thrones. However, it appears that Emilia is set to turn her back on the show.

Game of Thrones season two is set to premiere tonight and, while Emilia Clarke is set to appear in the whole of the second season, she has rejected the chance to return for the inevitable third season. That means that a new actress will be needed to play Daenerys Targaryen for Game of Thrones season three.
 
A Game of Thrones insider explained, “Emilia Clarke has decided to leave Game of Thrones at the end of the second season. She has stated that she wishes to pursue other projects and hopes of becoming a big screen movie star. We would like to thank her for her time on the show and wish her all the best for the future.”
 
It is expected that there will be a huge fan backlash and that the new actress who will be coming in to take Emilia Clarke’s place as Daenerys Targaryen will never be truly accepted by the Game of Thrones fans.

English actress Emilia Clarke became a household name and worldwide star last year, after appearing in the hit HBO fantasy drama series Game of Thrones. Emilia played the character Daenerys Targaryen and she has been talking to Entertainment Weekly about what fans can expect from her in the second season of Game of Thrones

Clarke explained, “Things kind of suck, because when you last saw her, it’s like magic was being re‑awoken and it’s all wonderful. Now [she’s in] complete and utter despair. She has dragons, but they are tiny. They’re babies.”
 
She added, “She doesn’t even know how to feed them. So, and she’s got all her people looking to her, including Jorah, and she’s losing the will to kind of see her way through it.”
 
Emilia Clarke recently discussed her favourite moments from the first season of Game of Thrones and claimed that, while it is a fantasy series, if you take the magic away, it is still a very good show.

Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke has been talking about the first season of the hit HBO show and what she found the most memorable about it. Emilia also discussed how being a part of the Game of Thrones series has changed her life.

Clarke explained, “There are loads but I think some of the most memorable ones was episode 10. All the things sort of came to fruition, that was possibly the biggest moment I think.” Emilia then went on to reveal how her life has changed.
 
She added, “Completely. Upside down, inside out, totally transformed it, yeah. I never thought I would be here, doing this, not only with a company that I love so much – HBO has kind of always produced the best television around – but for a character in a book that I just care about so deeply, so it’s just become a dream come true.”
 
Emilia continued, “You can take the magic away and it stands alone as a compelling drama with complex characters and it’s got themes running through it that everybody can relate to. Family, jealousy, rivalry and just lots of things that people can relate to basically. Then you put the magic on top of it and it just makes it something even more special.”
 
Game of Thrones season two is set to premiere on HBO on April 1.

English actress Emilia Clarke has revealed how she loves her scenes where she has to speak Dothraki in the hit HBO fantasy drama Game of Thrones. With the second season of Game of Thrones just a couple of months away, Emilia claims that she loves being able to immerse herself into the language, as it helps to feel part of the culture.

Clarke explained, “Yeah it’s really good, yeah. I was looking back at it the other day and I was like ‘oh yeah, I was really getting really good’. It’s just wonderful to kind of have that as a tool to sort of immerse yourself in the Dothraki culture. To be able to be so different and then also have a completely different language as well, that kind of helps you to feel much more Dothraki.”
 
Emilia Clarke is one of the few lucky ones who managed to not be killed off in Game of Thrones season one, so will be joined by a whole host of new cast members for the second season of Game of Thrones. Game of Thrones season two is set to premiere on HBO on April 1, 2012 before it hits the UK on Sky Atlantic one day later on April 2, 2012.
TV Show of the Year 2011 
TV Show of the Year 2011 

There have been many great television shows in 2011, from those that have been well established for many a year, to those that have become bigger and better than previous years and to those that have had their debut season in 2011. It is a very difficult decision to make when trying to decide which television show in 2011 was the best but we do not think many people will disagree with our decision.

 
Game of Thrones premiered on HBO on April 17, 2011 and it was instantly picked up for a second season. The fantasy series is based on the best selling A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels, the first of which is called A Game of Thrones, written by George R. R. Martin. The Game of Thrones television series would become bigger than anybody involved could have imagined.
 
The story line in the Game of Thrones television series does stick fairly close to that of the book. It is set in the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, where it is said that the “summers span decades and winters can last a lifetime.” Game of Thrones follows a number of noble families, as they all pledge war against one another in a battle to gain control of the Iron Throne. However, there are other threats, such as the White Walkers which lurk beyond the wall.
 
 
Game of Thrones starred a number of well established actors, such as Sean Bean, Mark Addy and Lena Headey, and also saw some new stars come forward, such as Maisie Williams, Emilia Clarke and Jack Gleeson. Many people believe that the lesser known actors and actresses in season one of Game of Thrones, actually stole the show and it would be difficult to disagree.
 
The first season of Game of Thrones was filmed in a number of locations, such as Northern Ireland, Malta and Scotland, using some of the most amazing, picturesque scenes around. Meanwhile, season two of Game of Thrones has added Croatia to the list of shooting locations, while the scenes which will feature as the north of the Wall have been filmed in Iceland.
 
 
All of these things add up and come together to produce one of the greatest television shows, not only of 2011, but possibly of all time. Therefore, we have chosen Game of Thrones as our TV Show of the Year 2011. Game of Thrones Season 2 is set to premiere on HBO in April.
