AceShowbiz - Emilia Clarke is having a post-finale blues just like the rest of "Game of Thrones" fans. The Daenerys Targaryen of the hit HBO fantasy series, which concluded its run after 8 seasons in May, reveals in a new interview that she has one regret from the show.
"I didn't take anything from the set and I deeply regret it," she said in the June cover of Variety magazine which she shares with Regina Hall. "I'm very annoyed and I'm really hoping that the showrunners will give me a dragon egg."
"Having it come to its final moment feels utterly surreal and completely bizarre and so much life has happened in the ten years…," the British actress went on saying. "At first it was an existential crisis. Who am I? Where are my dragons? It felt really deeply emotional… You saw everyone's truthful fragility as it ended… When it did finally end, it broke everyone."
The "Solo: A Star Wars Story" star also shared that playing Dany on the show not only changed her life, but saved it. "Daenerys really saved my life, because it puts you in quite the headspace when you've had a brain injury. Walking in her shoes, I just put so much more into each season because it really was life or death and I felt so powerfully like she was saving me it was like I couldn't see anything else, I could only see her," she explained.
Emilia posted a heartfelt message on her Instagram account ahead of the final episode on May 19. "Finding the words to write this post has left me overwhelmed with how much I want to say but how small words feel in comparison to what this show and Dany have meant to me," she wrote alongside a behind-the-scenes photo of her with her castmates including Kit Harington, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams and more.
"The mother of dragons chapter has taken up the whole of my adult life. This woman has taken up the whole of my heart. I've sweated in the blaze of dragon fire, shed many tears at those who left our family early, and wrung my brain dry trying to do Khaleesi and the masterful words, actions (and names) I was given, justice. Game of Thrones has shaped me as a woman, as an actor and as a human being. I just wish my darling dad was here now to see how far we've flown," she concluded.
