Emilia Clarke Reveals What Annoyed Her About GoT's Ending


When Game of Thrones ended, no longer everyone used to be as soon as happy. There used to be as soon as outrage from fanatics or perhaps a petition calling for a remake of the eighth season.

Of trail, this used to be as soon as just about a 12 months prior to now, and folks have since had time to process the finale—along with the cast.

In a modern interview for The Sunday Times, Emilia Clarke (a.ok.a. Daenerys Targaryen) seemed once more at the show’s completing and the fanatics’ response.

“When the show did end, it was like coming out of a bunker,” she knowledgeable the newspaper. “Everything felt really strange. Then obviously for it to have the backlash it did …”

But used to be as soon as this backlash something the actress anticipated?

“I knew how I felt when I first read it, and I tried, at every turn, not to consider too much what other people might say,” she endured, “but I did always consider what the fans might think—because we did it for them, and they were the ones who made us successful, so…it’s just polite, isn’t it?”

Clarke pointed to “the global temperature” and “how much horrific news there is consistently” as a “way to explain the enormity of fans’ outrage.”

“Because people are going, finally, here’s something I can actually see and understand and get some control back over…and then when that turns, and you don’t like what they’ve done….,” she knowledgeable The Sunday Times.

For those who didn’t see the completing, here’s what happened (warning: spoilers ahead for those who nevertheless wish to catch up): Nobody in spite of everything finally ends up sitting on the Iron Throne. This is on account of Daenerys’ dragon burned it after she used to be as soon as murdered by the use of Jon Snow (carried out by the use of Kit Harington). The leaders of Westeros then decided that Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) must be the new king of the kingdoms, and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) decided to rule the North independently.

During the interview, Clarke admitted she “felt” for her persona.

“I really felt for her. And yeah, was I annoyed that Jon Snow didn’t have to deal with something?” she discussed with a laugh. “He got away with murder—literally.”

She moreover addressed the critique that the overall season tried to cram in a great deal of content material subject matter in too little time, noting “we could have spun it out for a little longer.”

Harington moreover spoke about fanatics’ expectations during a 2019 interview with Esquire.

“How I feel about the show right now is quite defiant,” he knowledgeable the magazine at the time. “I think no matter what anyone thinks about this season—and I don’t mean to sound mean about critics here—but whatever critic spends half an hour writing about this season and makes their [negative] judgement on it, in my head they can go f–k themselves. ‘Cause I know how much work was put into this. I know how much people cared about this. I know how much pressure people put on themselves and I know how many sleepless nights working or otherwise people had on this show. Because they cared about it so much. Because they cared about the characters. Because they cared about the story. Because they cared about not letting people down. Now if people feel let down by it, I don’t give a f–k—because everyone tried their hardest. That’s how I feel. In the end, no one’s bigger fans of the show than we are, and we’re kind of doing it for ourselves. That’s all we could do, really. And I was just happy we got to the end.”
