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.”
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.”

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.
