Emilia Clarke Wants ‘Game of Thrones To ‘Finish On A High’ | TV News
Following a badgering of reports saying the end could be in sight for HBO’s beloved Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke – who plays Daenerys has confirmed she wants the show to “finish on a high”. With mere days to go before the debut of its sixth season, the fantasy drama has become one of the most talked about television shows; managing to win twelve Emmy Awards out of twenty-four nominations.
Speaking to Variety, Clarke explained how she wants to do the show justice: “I would like to see it go on as long as it’s needed. I think that’s something they’re very aware of and we are all very aware of, is to finish on a high and to do the story justice, which isn’t doing a million [seasons]”.
She continued, addressing that she doesn’t know when the definitive end will be: “Every story has a beginning, a middle, and an end, and so does Game of Thrones. I don’t know when our end will be, but it won’t be 10 years from now“.
Clarke was also keen to reveal how much pressure there has been to get the sixth installment right; considering the show has now overtaken author George R.R Martin‘s books: “When we were actually following the books, there’s a big thing about, ‘Did they leave anything out? Did we leave anything out? Did we do it well? Is that what you thought we wanted to do'”?
See Game of Thrones return in the US on Sunday, 24 April on HBO and in the UK on Monday, 25 April on Sky Atlantic. Watch a teaser trailer below:
