In a new interview for Variety Emilia Clarke gave ‘Game Of Thrones’ fans fair warning about the sixth season.
The actress who plays Daenerys Targaryen warns that season five’s White Walker battle and Night’s Watch betrayal won’t hold a candle to the action next year.
“I’m looking forward to absolutely every part of it, it’s like go-go-go from episode one,” Clarke the website.
“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’.”
Clarke also compared her excitement for season six of Game of Thrones to “a kid having a sugar high”.
“I can’t handle how sick these scripts are,” she said. “We actually got the next load in as well and they’re really good.
“You know that [showrunners] David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] 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.”
Game of Thrones returns to HBO and Sky Atlantic next year.
