Emilia Clarke has so far managed to escape the pranks pulled by “Game of Thrones” bosses David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, but she thinks Season 3 might finally land her in the role of joke victim.
“OK, so I’m waiting,” she told AccessHollywood.com at Comic-Con 2012, in San Diego. “I feel like it’s coming up. I feel like it’s going to happen. I feel like I’ve missed — like I’ve dodged the bullet two years in a row and I feel like something’s going to happen where they’re gonna do it this year, but at the moment it’s just been Alfie [Allen] and a few others, and Kit [Harington] had one as well.”
The fiery conclusion to her Daenerys Targaryen Season 2 storyline, however, might prompt the executive producers to leave her alone – for now.
“Oh, yeah, definitely,” Emilia laughed when Access said they can’t touch the khaleesi.
“Mother of dragons,” she added.
Emilia was tight-lipped when Access asked her if the Unsullied (a uniquely trained army) might finally enter the drama, but hinted her story arc will be big.
“There are ‘Game of Thrones’ snipers everywhere who will shout at me for certain things. All I can say is everyone should be excited,” she said.
While fans will have to wait to find out if that storyline takes shape when the drama returns March 31, 2013, Emilia suggested Ser Jorah Mormont’s crush on Dany isn’t going away any time soon.
“I think that is a topic that we dabbled in, in Season 2 and it’s definitely something that doesn’t go away, so watch this space,” she said.
“Game of Thrones” Season 3 has already started shooting and Emilia said she can’t wait to get back on set.
“So excited. You have no idea,” she told Access.
And the actress was also enthusiastic about David and D.B. directing episodes of the show, which they’ll do for the first time this season.
“It’s going to be amazing. It’s going to be really hard to take them seriously, I think. Like D and D?!?” she laughed.
