LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Emilia Clarke is brimming with excitement for the premiere of “Game of Thrones” Season 3 on March 31.
“I’ve never in my life been more excited to see a season as Season 3. It’s gonna be good,” the actress told Access Hollywood on Sunday night, as she hit the red carpet at HBO’s post-Golden Globes bash.
The actress, who plays Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO series, based on the “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels from George R. R. Martin, kept fairly mum on actual details of the new season.
“Just so much more,” she said, when our Access producer asked what to expect. “Well, from me, I’m not sure — [you’ll] have to wait and see.”
The actress will make her Broadway debut a little over a week before the premiere of “GOT,” playing Holly Golightly in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” beginning March 20.
“It kind of just came about,” she told Access of landing the part. “I’m very, very lucky.”
Emilia’s version of the project is based on the book, so she won’t get to don any of film star Audry Hepburn’s costumes, but she said it will still be a glamorous affair.
“The play itself is like set in the ‘40s, which is when the novel is set so it’s slightly different, but it’s still like fashion crazy, it’s amazing,” she said.
The British actress has been spotted out with Seth MacFarlane, her rumored boyfriend, in recent months, but she missed catching him take on the world’s media at the Oscar nominations press conference last Thursday.
“I was actually on a plane,” she said.
Asked how she thinks he’ll do though when the “Family Guy” star hosts Hollywood’s biggest night, Emilia quipped, “I think just nail it is probably what he’s going to do.”
