Emilia Clarke says TV is not ready for Game of Thrones season 8
Emilia Clark doesn’t think TV is ready for Game of Thrones season 8.
The last season ended on a cliffhanger when the wall dividing men and White Walkers came crashing down. Hero Jon Snow (Kit Harington) attempted to build an army to fight them but struggled to convince others the threat was real.
Meanwhile, Queen Daenerys Targaryen (Clarke) is seeking vengeance after the death of her dragon Viserion by the Night King.
Speaking to Access at the HBO Golden Globe Awards afterparty, a reporter asked Clarke if fans were ready for season eight.
She replied: “I don’t know. I don’t know if anyone’s ready. I don’t know if TV’s ready.”
Clarke also reacted to the news that season eight wouldn’t air until 2019, promising light at the end of the tunnel.
“It’s gonna be worth it,” she promised. “Oh my god, it’s going to be worth it.”
There’s a lot to absorb in the new season, according to Clarke, who shared her reaction to reading the scripts.
“So I read the scripts this season, and in some kind of a daze walked out of my house. The only thing I took was my keys. About three hours later I arrived back home and I still hadn’t taken it all in.”
