Just like the millions of “Game of Thrones” fans across the globe, Emilia Clarke is devastated the HBO series has come to an end.
“Having it come to its conclusion feels utterly surreal and completely bizarre and very, very very strange,” she tells Regina Hall in an upcoming episode of Variety’s Actors on Actors.
“So much of life has happened in the 10 years,” Clarke said. “I’ve grown into a woman. I started as a child. (I mean) I was 23 but mentally, I was so green.”
Clarke says she wrapped filming on “Thrones” in August of 2017, given the show’s epic post-production work, and that it’s taken her nearly this long to come to terms with her saying goodbye to the Mother of Dragons.
“At first I was like existential ‘Who am I? Where are my dragons?’ Why or where am I driving? Where the hell are we?’ It felt really deeply emotional.”
While some of her cast mates took what memorabilia they could from set, Clarke said she simply forgot to do so.
“I deeply regret it. And I’m very annoyed,” she laughed. “And I’m really hoping the show-runners give me an egg.”
Watch the full conversation between Clarke and Hall on the next season of Actors on Actors, which airs in June on PBS SoCal.
