Game of Thrones ontving recentelijk een recordaantal Emmy nominaties voor het vijfde seizoen, te weten 24. Vele fans kijken nu al uit naar wat het zesde zal brengen, en volgens Emilia Clarke, “it’s going to be a doozy.”
De actrice vertelde in een interview over de Emmy nominaties (inclusief haar eigen nominatie voor de rol van Daenerys Targaryen). Over de 24 nominaties zei ze: “Well, I think it was a couple of things. I think that we’ve really come into a quite satisfying place, just on a plot level. You’re starting to see characters overlapping again; you’re really getting into the meat of it. And I think that five seasons on people are really invested in these characters. So I think it’s the combination of that, and with that, every season of “Game of Thrones” has become a little bit bigger. The sets have become a little bit more elaborate. The green screen has become a little bit more frequent. Just simply the growth of it is impressive. That mixed with the best writing you’ll find, anywhere. I think it’s probably a winning combination.”
Over het zesde seizoen: “Ooooh. 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.”
