Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke – aka the Khaleesi herself – confirmed that they’ll be a huge battle when Game of Thrones returns to our screens. A battle bigger than the Battle of the Bastards.
The 29-year-old actor who plays Daenerys Targaryen in the show has said that the show’s producers have ‘topped it again’, which is big news considering how epic last season’s ‘Battle of the Bastards’ was.
Her remarks echo co-star Maisie Williams, (Arya), who said ‘shit gets real’ in season seven.
“Oh my god. Confirm, confirm confirm. It’s ridiculous,” Clarke told TV Line.
“If anyone came on to [filming of] any day on Game of Thrones, it would be a spoiler. Every single word is a spoiler, almost. It’s ridiculous, [but] they topped it again.
“Last season’s battle was ridiculous. Miguel [Sapochnik], the director, have to shout out, he’s phenomenal. But this season is off the shizzy. There’s another battle.”
So who’s the battle with? Is it going to be a badass battle with Cersei at King’s Landing?
And when asked who she’d like more screen time with, Clarke said she would love more scenes with some female co-stars.
“Give me another girl!” she said. “I want to go hang out with Cersei [Lannister], or with Maisie or with Sophie [Turner], that would be nice.” And perhaps that, in itself, is a hint.
From the sounds of it the next season is going to be sick and I can’t wait.
