Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s “Game Of Thrones” revealed what she thinks of the big theory that has been swirling around the character of Jon Snow.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Clarke shares her thoughts on the persistent fan theory that Jon Snow and her character, Daenerys, are actually related.
She shares that she and actor Kit Harrington, who plays Snow, talk about this theory and the possibility that their characters would meet eventually.
Clarke even joked that perhaps when their characters cross paths, they might even develop a romantic relationship together.
According to The Hollywood Reporter , Clarke shared that Daenerys and Jon would romantically ‘get together’ because that is the Targaryen way in a “[keeping] the bloodline pure.” “If me and Jon Snow did meet, it would be interesting,” said Clarke.
“It would be funny, but I think Daenerys would ultimately kick his a**.” As for the other big meeting that fans are waiting for — that of Daenerys and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), Clarke says, “I reckon they’d probably get on quite well, because they’re quite similar in so many ways.” “It would definitely be a meeting of minds, that’s for sure,” the “Terminator” star adds.
This meeting of Daenerys and Tyrion has been heavily hinted at by a new promotional poster from the upcoming “Game of Thrones” season.
The poster features Tyrion looking at a dragon.
The trailers also show that Lord Varys is encouraging Tyrion to facilitate the arrival of Daenerys to King’s Landing to take over the Iron Throne.
The brand new season of “Game of Thrones” is different from the previous ones in that the story might have to spoil the books, instead of the other way around.
According to Vanity Fair , “[The TV show] will basically, meet up at pretty much the same place where George is going,” producer David Benioff shared.
“There might be a few deviations along the route, but we’re heading towards the same destination.” “I kind of wish that there were some things we didn’t have to spoil, but we’re kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place,” he added.
“The show must go on.
.and that’s what we’re going to do.”
