Emilia Clarke Teases Next “Thrones” Season

HBO’s epic fantasy series “Game of Thrones” is usually famous for having two or three major shocks or events each season, with many of them taking place in the second half after the first few episodes lay the ground work.

With production about to get underway on the sixth season, and this time with even readers of the book series having no idea what to expect, actress Emilia Clarke (who plays Daenerys Targaryen) has spoken with The Los Angeles Times about what’s in store:

“Ooooh. Oooooh there’s so much in store for her. I’m saying that obviously because I’ve read the script for next season. Muwah ha ha! I know stories. It’s really exciting.

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.’

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.”

The series is expected to commence airing its sixth season in April next year.
