Every ardent Game of Thrones fan will certainly agree to the truth that Emilia Clarke’s character, Daenerys Targaryen, has evolved a lot over the years. From the beginning, she was simply a naive princess used as a piece of currency traded to a tribe. But, now that the final season approaches, we are able to see that throughout the series she grows to be a fearless queen and mother of dragons.
Discussing the evolution of her character she told Entertainment Weekly, “The thing I now realise is she’s not a scared little girl anymore. So there’s less room for vulnerability or sentimentality or soft edges.”
The evolution of her character will also be drawn from the names Daenerys achieves with each development in the show. In Game of Thrones, she is called as, Daenerys Stormborn, Khaleesi, Mhysa, Mother of Dragons, The Unburnt, The Queen Across the Sea, and The Princess That Was Promised among many other names.
She also claims that she thinks the upcoming eighth and final season of the series a bit like Meet the Parents.
Meet the Parents is a 2000 romantic comedy, which features Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro and Teri Polo and is about a man meeting the parents of his girlfriend for the very first time.
In the forthcoming eighth season, Daenerys Targaryen arrives at Winterfell, the home of Jon Snow (Kit Harington), where she is will meet his sisters, Arya (Maisie Williams) and Sansa (Sophie Turner), and his brother Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright).
“I desire to believe that it’s like ‘Meet the Parents’. It’s like: ‘I hope they like me. This dude’s wicked. It’s a real good thing we got going on. He’s the final piece. We’re destined for greatness and world domination is a breath away,” claimed Emilia.
“And hence I really need to be like: ‘Can I braid your hair, Sansa? Little Arya, come over here, let’s play some cricket.’ So there’s that. And then, very, very quickly, it’s like: ‘Wait, is it just me, or do they hate me ?'” claimed the 32-year-old actress.
