LOS ANGELES: Actor Emilia Clarke has hyped up the anticipation for the Game of Thrones season six, saying it will be “epic” and will have many “shocking” moments.

“It’s really exciting. Next season, I’ve said this before, but there are a lot of seasons 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’.”

Clarke was quoted as saying by the Los Angeles Times, “But this season coming up, that we’re about to film, there’s none of that. It’s just go, go, go, and go. Shocking moment to shocking moment. Epic moment to epic moment. It’s mental; it’s epic. And definitely Daenerys Targaryen is a part of it.”

Dishing on what her character has learned from her failures, Clarke said Daenerys Targaryen is “definitely on the upwards trajectory of truly learning from the mistakes that she’s made as a ruler”.

“It’s not so much a matter of learning from the mistakes that have gone before her, but it’s a matter of her trusting herself and being confident in the decisions that she’s about to make. And being confident enough to stand next to those decisions and take full responsibility for them,” she added.

Clarke has been nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series at the upcoming Emmy Awards. She’s up against her Game of Thrones co-star Lena Headey, who portrays Cersei Lannister, in addition to other actresses in the category.
