If you were hoping to review Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen in one of the Game of Thrones spin-offs under discussion or in the works… We are so sorry. The actress, in an interview granted to the BBC, spoke at length about her acting career which now keeps her busy in the theater in the United Kingdom. Currently on stage will play the character of Nina ne ‘The Seagull’ by Anton Chekhov, directed by Anya Reiss.
Of course, the interview turned to Clarke’s previous work at one point. Especially Game of Thrones. The HBO-produced series marked Clarke’s mainstream debut as Daenerys Targaryen. Regarding it, Clarke confessed that it was a somewhat traumatic experience. Clarke doesn’t explain exactly why but it seems that before filming some nude scenes in Game of Thrones she was terrified. Not that she regrets it “remorse is not something that belongs to me” says Clarke.
It comes alive when you ask him if he was aware of the project by Kit Harington that will lead him to play Jon Snow again in a spin-off. Clarke admits to having learned about it thanks to the actor who allegedly confided in him the project and to have then had confirmation from The Hollywood Reporter. The interviewer asks him if she would ever think of reprising her role in a similar project. On the matter Clarke is dry “No. I don’t think I ever will”.
This does not mean that it has definitively closed the doors to the series. During the interview, Clarke confessed that he will be watching both Harington’s project and House of the Dragon due out in August. The series with Matt Smith represents a prequel to the origins of the Targaryen family, so, says Clarke, it will be strange for her to see it.
What do you think? You would have liked to see her again in the role of Born from the Storm, Khaleesi of the Great Sea of Grass, The Unburned, Mother of Dragons, Mhysa, Breaker of Chains, The Princess Who Was Promised etc etc etc etc?
