Emilia Clarke did not hide her disappointment with the “Game of Thrones” finale, telling The Sunday Times last year she was annoyed the series prioritized set pieces over dialogue scenes & character work. The actress also admitted she struggled khổng lồ come to terms with the killing of her character, Daenerys Targaryen, in the finale after she had gone mad with power. Now here we are over two years after the “Thrones” finale aired, and Clarke is more at peace with her career-defining franchise. Asked by The Hollywood Reporter if she’s made peace with “Thrones,” the actress answered, “I really have. I really, really, really have.”

“I think it’ll take me to lớn my 90s to be able khổng lồ objectively see what ‘Game of Thrones’ was, because there’s just too much me in it,” Clarke said. “I have too many emotional reactions for what Emilia, herself, was experiencing at that moment in time when we were filming it. You know what I mean? I watch a scene và I go, ‘Oh, that was when happened,’ which you didn’t see on screen. & I think there’s something timely about the prequels và the continuation of the ‘Game of Thrones’ story coming about now. I look at it and I’m like, ‘Wow, yeah.’ So I see it with only peace.”



Clarke added, “I’m still friends with people from the show, và I know I will be friends with these people until the day I die. So it’s had a lasting impact on my life, & it starts to lớn become, like, ‘Hey guys, remember when we were in college? Hey, remember the fourth grade?’ Daenerys has a part of my heart. She is in there, và I’ll never forget. I can’t remember who I was talking to, but they were like, ‘Oh my God, when you say ‘she,’ you’re talking about Daenerys.’ and I was like, ‘Yeah! Because she’s a whole person. She’s got her own life that I explore.’ So I think that there’s the show, the impact of the show, the impact of the show on me, personally and professionally, và the zeitgeist-iness of it. And then there’s Daenerys. So that’s my own private little space that I don’t need lớn make peace with because it’s just a beautiful memory. It’s just a beautiful memory.”

While Clarke is at peace with “Thrones,” she can still see why the series finale & the decision lớn turn Daenerys into a villain in such a rushed manner rubbed many fans the wrong way. As Clarke told MTV this week, “I get why people are pissed. I totally get it. But, me being the actor, you can’t vị justice to lớn the character that you poured your blood, sweat, và tears into for a decade without getting on the same page. So like, I’m not just going to be there being like, ‘Fine, I’ll bởi the scene, whatever. I’m so pissed.’ You have khổng lồ turn up.”

Clarke’s “Game of Thrones” days are behind her, but fans will get the chance khổng lồ dive into the history of Daenerys’ family lineage with the upcoming prequel series “House of the Dragon.” HBO unveiled a first look at the show’s cast in character at the start of May, và Clarke called it “very surreal” to see a whole new batch of Targaryens.

“I’ve been prepped for this because Miguel , who’s the co-showrunner, is a really dear friend of mine,” Clarke told THR. “So I’ve been chatting to lớn him about it for a while. So I was prepped. But yeah, it’s crazy! Those pictures came out and I was like, “Whoa! Whoa!” I was on my own last time. I didn’t know I had pals. (Laughs.) I could’ve had a bunch of friends to hang out with, but yes, it’s mildly surreal to be seeing all of that again. But good luck khổng lồ them is what I would say. I really mean that.”

“Game of Thrones” is streaming in its entirety on HBO Max. “House of the Dragon” won’t debut until 2022.
