One of the best television shows Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has reflected on the ending of the series by saying that she’s ‘only sees it with peace.’
It’s been a little over two years since the end of Game of Thrones was released. The HBO series finale aired on May 19, 2019, and has been the subject of controversy, backlash, controversy, backlash, and even more controversy ever since.
But most of all, it was wondered what the stars of the series thought about the finale of Game of Thrones. Emilia Clarke recently interviewed The Hollywood Reporter and shared her memories and thoughts about the ending of the series.
Here’s what Emilia Clarke said:
“I think it’ll take me to my 90s to be able to objectively see what Game of Thrones was, because there’s just too much me in it. I have too many emotional reactions for what Emilia, herself, was experiencing at that moment in time when we were filming it.”
“You know what I mean? I watch a scene and I go, ‘Oh, that was when [such and such] happened,’ which you didn’t see on screen.”
“And I think there’s something timely about the prequels and the continuation of the Game of Thrones story coming about now. I look at it and I’m like, ‘Wow, yeah.’ So I see it with only peace.
I’m still friends with people from the show, and I know I will be friends with these people until the day I die.”
Daenerys talks about her character and the show’s ‘beautiful memory’:
“Daenerys has a part of my heart. She is in there, and I’ll never forget. So I think that there’s the show, the impact of the show, the impact of the show on me, personally and professionally, and the zeitgeist-iness of it. And then there’s Daenerys.
So that’s my own private little space that I don’t need to make peace with because it’s just a beautiful memory. It’s just a beautiful memory.”
