AceShowbiz - Emilia Clarke has hyped up the anticipation for "Game of Thrones" season 6 while the show won't return until 2016. In an interview with LA Times, the Daenerys Targaryen depicter says she has read the script for next season.
"It's really exciting," she gushes, "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.' "
She goes on teasing, "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."
Dishing on what her character has learned from her failure as a ruler, the British beauty shares, "I think that she's definitely on the upwards trajectory of truly learning from the mistakes that she's made as a ruler. It's not so much a matter of learning from the mistakes that have gone before her, but it's a matter of her trusting herself and being confident in the decisions that she's about to make. And being confident enough to stand next to those decisions and take full responsibility for them."
Clarke has been nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series at the upcoming Emmy Awards. She's up against her own co-star Lena Headey in addition to other actresses in the category. Asked if she congratulated Headey for the nomination, she says, "We've not spoken, but we've been using the telecommunications to congratulate one another for sure."
She also tells Variety of Headey, "It feels bloody amazing. I wholeheartedly believe that she deserves it much, much more than I do. She's one of the finest actors ever, and I've grown up on the show admiring her and going to her for advice, so it's really bloody amazing, because she puts her heart out there, and every season ... she gives it so much. It's brilliant. I want everyone on 'Game of Thrones' to be nominated for something."
Headey chimes in, "Two for one, 'Game of Thrones'! It's great, it's gonna be great to be up there with Emilia - to finally have two of us in a category, two women, it's very cool. I need to talk to her about that; I need to call her and say well done."
