Emilia Clarke has teased that the upcoming new season of Game of Thrones is “sick” and promises that it will be even more shocking, violent, and disturbing than ever before.
Clarke, who has played Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO fantasy drama since its very first episode, has already had a sneaky peek at the scripts for the new episodes, and she couldn’t hide her excitement.
Speaking to the Daily Star, via the Mirror, Clarke, who earlier this summer starred as Sarah Connor in Terminator Genisys, admitted that the new scripts are truly incredible.
“I’ve seen some of the new scripts and I’m like a kid on a sugar high. I can’t handle how sick some of them are. We’re just going to hit the audience with every episode, coming up with something more mental than the last. I can’t believe some of the twists in store.”
The upcoming sixth season to Game of Thrones will see the return of Bran Stark, who will be played by Isaac Hempstead Wright, who has been missing from the show since Season 4.
However, the biggest question on Game of Thrones fans lips is whether Kit Harington’s Jon Snow will return to the show. The final episode of the last season of Game of Thrones saw the beloved character repeatedly stabbed while it appeared as though he would likely die from his injuries.
Meanwhile, Jerome Flynn, who portrays Bronn in the drama, has admitted that he originally believed signing up to Game of Thrones would ruin his career.
The English actor thought that he was “selling his soul” by signing to star in “American twaddle,” and he didn’t know that the show would eventually become so hugely successful.
Speaking to the Radio Times magazine, via the List, Flynn admitted, “I had ideas about how it went that were, of course, very naive.”
He added, “I walked into one of the most popular shows on the planet. I’d put it in a bracket of American twaddle. I had a picture of dying a terrible death, a selling-my-soul kind of feeling. I’d never done anything American before.”
However, after talking to the show’s producers and seeing the fellow members of his esteemed cast, Flynn soon changed his mind.
“Then when I met the producers,” he admitted. “I got an idea of what it meant to them, and the scale of the production. Then the cast turned up, and I realised this was epic. Wonderful to be part of.”
