Game of Thrones Actress Emilia Clarke Discusses Her Character, Fans and Fantasy

Game of Throne actress Emilia Clarke has been discussing how her own development has matched her character's.
 
 
When asked what similarities Emilia can see between her character and herself, the blonde actress admitted that the biggest shared trait was naivity:

"We both started out as naïve young girls with plenty to learn. Season one was sometimes petrifying and terrifying and horrifying. Dany was with me and helped me to step away from myself. I feel like I’ve learned a huge amount. I think we're similar in that we try not to make the same mistakes twice. Not to sound too much like an obnoxious actor, but the character never really leaves me. I've read all the books many times over, so I sometimes find it easier being on set, because it can be hard to get out of character."

Fantasy fans are a notoriously obsessive lot, but Emilia is relieved that she hasn't had any crazy marriage proposals yet. She told the Telegraph:

"Nobody's proposed yet, no. Nobody's gone down on one knee. But my biggest aim in the first season was to keep the fans happy. I knew that Dany was a loved and hated character in the books, and I wanted to be true to everyone's imagination of her while also being true to my interpretation. If I've managed that, then fantastic. But I don't really look at stuff online. At the start I was looking and found something which wasn't very nice, so now I leave it all. If there's something that people are desperately happy with or unhappy with, you tend to hear about it anyway."
 
When asked how life has changed for her, she admits that her life is now unrecognisable in comparison to pre-Game of Thrones:

"Game of Thrones has opened doors that were never there before. But it can be dangerous to see it in those terms, I think. It's best to take it as it comes and work as hard as you can, and hopefully the other things fall into place."

Emilia also said that the actors talk to George R R Martin, the author of the series, whenever they like:

"We can talk to him whenever we want. but on the whole he lets us get on with it. If we were doing anything really wrong I think he’d let us know, but he’s happy I think. But at the moment he’s writing so we don’t want to disturb him."
