Emilia Clarke Promises ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 Will Be “Shocking”

emilia clarke lena headey

I don’t know about you, but I had pretty mixed feelings about Game of Thrones last season. It was largely boring, some of the most interesting characters were done a major disservice by either having them do nothing (Daenerys) or having them completely and totally torn apart (Cersei). Jon Snow’s death was the most “shocking” to many, but was it really? I mean, we all knew he couldn’t actually live forever, right?

Anyhow, while Season 5 might have been a bit disappointing, the Khaleesi herself, Emilia Clarke, is trying to drum up enthusiasm for Game of Thrones season 6, which is still nearly a year away. She’s read the first scripts and thinks fans will be pretty happy with what happens next time around.

From Variety:

“I’m looking forward to absolutely every part of it, it’s like go-go-go from episode one,” Clarke said. “You know how sometimes it’s like, ‘we’re just going to remind you and warm you up: remember this and remember that and I bet you forgot his name …’ sort of thing? [This season] it’s literally like ‘oh yeah, no chance to catch up, here you go, we’re just gonna hit you with it every episode, with something more mental than the last.’”

She added, “I’m like a kid having a sugar high — I can’t handle how sick these scripts are. We actually got the next load in as well and they’re really good. You know that David and Dan are really happy with a script when in the stage directions they just add their own commentary like ‘yeah, right, bitches, sixth season!’ There’s a lot of that.”

Oh, and Lena Headey is excited, too. Here’s her contribution:

“Every year you go ‘What?! Whaaaat!?’ and having read these, it’s the same feeling again … there’s a lot to be very excited about,” Headey teased.

I mean, I know they can’t really give anything away, but really? That’s all we get? Given that the one thing we do know for sure is that Bran Stark is coming back, I think I’ll keep my expectations low.

Channing Tatum Wants A Threesome With Daenerys Targaryen

Channing Tatum is rather happily married to his wife, Jenna Dewan, and has been for a few years now. They’re parents of a cute little girl and it’s all good… except there’s one thing missing: a threesome with Game of Thrones‘ Daenerys Targaryen. Or, you know, Emilia Clarke, the actress who plays her. If it all sounds a little random, don’t worry – I’ll explain.

Back in May, Emilia told Harper’s Bazaar about her first time meeting Channing and Jenna, and things got a little intense:

“I was at a Golden Globes afterparty and Channing f–king Tatum came up to me, and his stunning missus, Jenna Dewan. And they said, ‘We call each other ‘moon of my life’ and ‘my sun and stars’ and all that. And I was like, ‘I cannot contain this. Please, can we all have something sexual together? You’re both beautiful, even just a hug.’”

That fateful meeting has apparently never left Channing’s mind, and during an interview with Howard Stern this week, Channing opened up about his love of the Mother of Dragons (via US Weekly):

Tatum, a self-professed Game of Thrones fan — he called Clarke “Khaleesi” when they met — said that his ears immediately perked up at the mention of a possible threesome with the British beauty.

“And I’m just looking at my wife for reaction,” he told Stern. “Like, ‘I don’t know. I don’t know what’s happening. Is this happening? I think this might be happening.’”

His spouse of five years played it cool, but Tatum joked that if she were to entertain the idea of a threesome with anyone, it would be with Daenerys Targaryen (Clarke’s GoT character). “Jenna’s a pro,” he said of the Witches of East End alum, with whom he has a 2-year-old daughter, Everly. “She’s just like, ‘Oh yeah, let’s do it!’ And then it never happens.”

Should the opportunity ever present itself for real, Tatum is in. “Oh, come on. What guy in their right mind [wouldn't be into it]?” he asked Stern. “I would put on some loin cloths and some swords or whatever to make it happen. Look, I’ll go find a dragon if you guys really want me to. Like, I’ll figure it out.”

I love this story, and I love that Channing has a crush on the Khaleesi. I used to, but then she got boring as shit during Season 5 and I kinda tuned out. I hope they turn up the heat a bit again with her next season. I still don’t understand why Khal Drogo had to die so early on. I’d pay money to have them back together.

Madonna’s ‘Game of Thrones’ costume was actually the real thing

Unfortunately, the image of Madonna dressed as Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones for Purim is burned into our minds forevermore. However, even though it was an absolute mess, everyone had to admit she did a pretty impressive job in looking the part.

Well, turns out, there’s a reason for that: it was Emilia Clarke‘s actual costume from the show!

“It’s my real costume. I thought I was dreaming. I got an email from amazing HBO publicist Mara, saying, ‘Madonna would like to borrow the costume, is that okay?’ I thought, ‘God, this must be a dream. This can’t be real.’”

Oh girl, it is real, unfortunately. Here’s Emilia’s interview on Late Night Starring Jimmy Fallon if you want to hear more…

‘Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke Is Our New Sarah Connor in the ‘Terminator’ Reboot

emilia clarke

In case you missed it, there’s going to be a Terminator reboot and we couldn’t have just any actress filling Linda Hamilton’s iconic role, now could we? Instead, several actresses read for the part, and the one that fit the bill best was none other than Daenerys Targaryen herself, Emilia Clarke.

Here’s the scoop from Variety:

After taming dragons on “Game of Thrones,” Emilia Clarke is preparing to fight cyborgs as she will portray Sarah Connor in Paramount, Skydance and Annapurna’s “Terminator” reboot.

Clarke, along with Brie Larson, tested for the part but sources say that the “Thrones” star was the early favorite. Sources said the studio was also interested in Margot Robbie, but she never read for the part.

Clarke’s deal closed Friday.

“Thor: the Dark World” helmer Alan Taylor is directing the film with Skydance and Annapurna co-financing along with the studio with David Ellison producing for Skydance and sibling Megan Ellison producing for Annapurna. Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier penned the script.

Nice one! I’ve never seen Emilia in anything but Game of Thrones, so will be interesting to see what her chops are like in other projects.

What do you think of the casting? Will you see the Terminator reboot?

Emilia Clarke’s Face Was Used In a Russian Anti-Rape Advertisement… Without Her Permission

emilia clarke

Emilia Clarke, the lovely Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones, is obviously gorgeous, so of course seeing her face in an advertisement is a good thing. However, the Russian town of Yekaterinburg took matters into their own hands and used Emilia’s picture in an anti-rape PSA that’s in support of politician Yakov Silin. I don’t really get it, but here’s the translation of the ad – in which Emilia is a girl called Anya who feels safe in the city now (via Digital Spy):

“I suddenly noticed that for the last couple of years I’m not afraid to walk at night in Yekaterinburg.

“I now have confidence that the city is safe, that no-one will attack me or rape me.

“It’s so cool… There are only few people on the streets, the streets have lights, the city is fresh and incredibly beautiful. Especially after it has been raining.”

Well, that’s… great. Obviously it’s a good message, so it could be worse, but Silin’s campaign organisers have admitted that they haven’t asked for permission to use Emilia’s picture – even though they still posted it on Facebook. Dun dun dunnnnnn.

The No Makeup Movement Continues With Emilia Clarke Showing Off Her Bare Face

emilia clarke no makeup

Emilia Clarke is joining Demi Lovato in showing fans a makeup free face, via social media. Unlike Ms. Lovato’s photo, it appears that Ms. Clarke actually isn’t wearing any makeup.

Fans are used to seeing her on Game of Thrones and in Broadway’s much maligned Breakfast At Tiffany’s with a very prettily made-up face. Makeup, no makeup, whatever — she’s a beautiful girl. I love this makeup free movement, because this photoshop shit is getting f-cking ridiculous, to the point where the celebrities don’t even look like themselves. It’s unnecessary. I would love to see these women on the covers of magazines with little or no makeup, and not as a novelty issue.

Then again I can see how some people would roll their eyes and think, good for you, do you want a medal for showing the world what you look like as a normal person? I’m for it though.

For comparison, here’s what Ms. Clarke looks like with makeup:

Everyone Hates Breakfast At Tiffany’s On Broadway

emilia clarke

Breakfast At Tiffany’s, the Truman Capote novella, was famously adapted to film starring Audrey Hepburn and recently for Broadway, starring Emilia Clarke. Unfortunately, the reviews suggest they should have stopped at the movie. Let’s take a look.

Showbiz411:

Emilia Clarke is obviously talented, but she is so miscast as Holly Golightly that it’s kind of shocking.

Chicago Tribune:

There’s no palpable connection between [lead characters] Fred and Holly…[Clarke] has the air of an impostor, which is good (and her best quality in this role)…But this is not a nuanced performance that reveals personal dislocation or pain, or some emptiness inside, or any kind of journey.

The Hollywood Reporter:

Clarke doesn’t demonstrate the maturity to convey Holly’s unique dichotomy of breezy insouciance and jaded calculation…[her] delivery mostly comes off as effortful over-enunciation…Far more than the casting or writing, however, the insurmountable problem is Mathias’ cloddish direction. One scene bumps into the next with painfully awkward transitions…

Vulture:

Emilia Clarke…can’t pull it off. She’s likable, she sings her one song (not “Moon River”) well, and she looks lovely in Colleen Atwood’s costumes. But when a girl named Golightly has to work at effervescence, something’s wrong—and it’s wrong throughout the production…Breakfast at Tiffany’s gets dreary pretty fast.

Entertainment Weekly:

Richard Greenberg’s new stage adaptation of Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a meandering misfire lacking the charm and oomph of either Capote’s 1958 novella or the 1961 movie…[Clark] she comes off as shrill rather than insouciant…Greenberg’s entire first act is a slog, bogged down with dreary exposition and the introduction of far too many quirky but uninteresting characters.

 

All of the reviews agree on one thing: the cat is fantastic. Yeah, that’s a real-life motherf-cking cat, and it steals the whole motherf-cking show.
