Emilia Clarke: Interview for The New Yorker Magazine

A Battle for My Life

Just when all my childhood dreams seemed to have come true, I nearly lost my mind and then my life. I’ve never told this story publicly, but now it’s time.

It was the beginning of 2011. I had just finished filming the first season of “Game of Thrones,” a new HBO series based on George R. R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels. With almost no professional experience behind me, I’d been given the role of Daenerys Targaryen, also known as Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Lady of Dragonstone, Breaker of Chains, Mother of Dragons. As a young princess, Daenerys is sold in marriage to a musclebound Dothraki warlord named Khal Drogo. It’s a long story—eight seasons long—but suffice to say that she grows in stature and in strength. She becomes a figure of power and self-possession. Before long, young girls would dress in platinum wigs and flowing robes to be Daenerys Targaryen for Halloween.

The show’s creators, David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, have said that my character is a blend of Napoleon, Joan of Arc, and Lawrence of Arabia. And yet, in the weeks after we finished shooting the first season, despite all the looming excitement of a publicity campaign and the series première, I hardly felt like a conquering spirit. I was terrified. Terrified of the attention, terrified of a business I barely understood, terrified of trying to make good on the faith that the creators of “Thrones” had put in me. I felt, in every way, exposed. In the very first episode, I appeared naked, and, from that first press junket onward, I always got the same question: some variation of “You play such a strong woman, and yet you take off your clothes. Why?” In my head, I’d respond, “How many men do I need to kill to prove myself?”

To relieve the stress, I worked out with a trainer. I was a television actor now, after all, and that is what television actors do. We work out. On the morning of February 11, 2011, I was getting dressed in the locker room of a gym in Crouch End, North London, when I started to feel a bad headache coming on. I was so fatigued that I could barely put on my sneakers. When I started my workout, I had to force myself through the first few exercises.

Then my trainer had me get into the plank position, and I immediately felt as though an elastic band were squeezing my brain. I tried to ignore the pain and push through it, but I just couldn’t. I told my trainer I had to take a break. Somehow, almost crawling, I made it to the locker room. I reached the toilet, sank to my knees, and proceeded to be violently, voluminously ill. Meanwhile, the pain—shooting, stabbing, constricting pain—was getting worse. At some level, I knew what was happening: my brain was damaged. Continue reading  »

Emilia Clarke’s Solo Flight

For nearly a decade, Emilia Clarke has ruled the ratings as Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s Game of Thrones. With the series slated to end next year, the 31-year-old actress has set her sights on new challenges. First up: conquering the Star Wars universe in this month’s Solo.

On a rainy April afternoon, Emilia Clarke enters the bright, airy Egyptian galleries of the Metropolitan Museum of Art the way so many movie-lovers before her have: quoting Billy Crystal in When Harry Met Sally. Adopting the unsourceable accent Crystal uses opposite Meg Ryan in a famously improvised scene filmed in this very room, Clarke starts stuttering, “Pah-pah-paprikash.” Our amused if bewildered guide, too young to get the reference, adds the 1989 rom-com to her list of movie recommendations from Clarke, who has already gushed about the 2017 religious drama Novitiate. Chuckling over this unlikely double feature, Clarke assures her, “You have two incredible movies coming your way.”

One reference the guide does get: Game of Thrones, the HBO juggernaut which stars Clarke as its most unstoppable heroine, Daenerys Targaryen. In fact, the very tour we’re taking, put together by a company called Museum Hack, is based on the series, and offers a fan-friendly survey of the sometimes inscrutable displays of the Met. You don’t have to be an art historian (our guide is an aspiring actress) to understand what Greek fire, Damascus blades, heraldry, mutilated men, samurai kamon, the dragon-born St. Margaret of Antioch, and an early female pharaoh have to do with wildfire, Valyrian steel, house words, and Clarke’s world-famous alter ego.

And yet, despite her fame, Clarke has managed to spend a full half-hour in the museum sponging up our guide’s trivia without being spotted. For years, Clarke’s brown hair let her hide in plain sight, but she recently bleached it an icy Targaryen blond. So, why the invisibility? Maybe it’s her height. “We both have a thing about our stature not quite being what people expect,” says her co-star Kit Harington, who, at five feet eight, has six inches on Clarke. Maybe it’s her outfit—the gray overcoat, cream sweater, and jeans are a far cry from the cloaks and armor of Thrones. Or maybe it’s her bright, decidedly non-intimidating personality. “When I’m goofing around with my pals, I’m unrecognizable,” she says. Harington calls Clarke’s humor “naughty,” and it’s certainly true that her informal, expletive-laced banter is a far cry from Daenerys’s imperious tones. “Sometimes, if I’m in a really bad mood,” Clarke notes, “people are like, ‘Khaleesi!’ ” Continue reading  »

Emilia Clarke on ‘Game of Thrones,’ Surfing and Her New Movie

As Daenerys Targaryen in HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” the British actress Emilia Clarke battles evil while armed with dragons and an apparent immunity to fire. But as Louisa Clark in “Me Before You,” she’s a mere mortal caring for a demonically angry Englishman (Sam Claflin) determined to end his life after being hit by a motorcycle and paralyzed. At which point Lou decides to help him live again.

It’s a role Ms. Clarke was determined to play the moment she received the Jojo Moyes novel from which Thea Sharrock’s romantic drama, opening on June 3, was adapted. “I was utterly convinced that someone had found me and written me, Emilia, down,” she said. “It wasn’t even a question that I would do whatever it took to be able to play Lou.”

That included chemistry reads with six men before she and Mr. Claflin (“The Hunger Games”) were partnered, “which was wonderful because we already knew each other,” she said. “We sort of cheated.”

In a phone interview, the Emmy-nominated, Berkshire-reared Ms. Clarke, 29, a Drama Center London grad who had but two tiny parts on her professional résumé when she was cast as Daenerys, spoke about her love of the sea, warrior women and unlikely namesakes. These are edited excerpts from the conversation.

Why are you calling from California?

I spend half my time in London, half my time in Los Angeles. But sometimes L.A. can feel a bit intense and soul sucking. When you’re by the sea, you’ve got that sea air blowing all of the anxiety cobwebs away from every person who’s desperate to make it. The people walk around with no shoes on and surf, and I feel like I’m on holiday every day. Continue reading  »

Emilia in Die Zeit: German article and a new photoshoot

In an interview with Die Zeit, Emilia talks about how Terminator Genisys was a dream come true for her. The article is in German, but in case there are fans who are either German or understand German you can read it below. A beautiful new photoshoot has also been released. I have added medium and low quality outtakes to the gallery. You can view them by visiting the following link.

Emilia Clarke traümt Terminator
Ich wollte aufspringen und schreien, aber es ging nicht.

Die Arbeit verfolgt mich oft in meine Träume. So auch zuletzt beim Dreh von Terminator Genisys. In neun von zehn Nächten träumte ich von meiner Rolle und den bevorstehenden Szenen. Zur Vorbereitung absolvierte ich ein intensives Training und lernte, wie man eine Waffe richtig hält und wie man kämpft. Davon war ich abends so ausgelaugt, dass ich müde ins Bett fiel und die wildesten Träume hatte. Leider blieben mir keine konkreten Szenen in Erinnerung, nur das Gefühl der Erschöpfung beim Aufwachen.

Mit dem Schlafen hatte ich ansonsten noch nie Probleme. Vor Kurzem las ich ein Interview, in dem jemand erzählte, er stelle sich beim Einschlafen vor, ein U-Boot zu sein. So ähnlich ist das auch bei mir: Ich lasse Stück für Stück los und tauche hinein in den Schlaf. Nur wenn ich besonders aufgekratzt bin vom vorangegangenen Tag, funktioniert das nicht. Dann versuche ich, mich an einem positiven Gedanken festzuhalten. Das hilft mir, runterzukommen.

Emilia Clarke doesn’t want to be remembered as Daenerys Targaryen

Emilia Clarke doesn’t want to be remembered as Daenerys Targaryen
Emilia talks about taking over an iconic role and how she’ll be sad when her big show comes to an end.

Emilia Clarke doesn’t want to be typecast. On many occasions the “Game of Thrones” star, who plays determined Mother of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen, has said she’s reluctant to do nudity — one of the reasons she turned down “Fifty Shades of Grey.” “I have done naked scenes before, and I was worried about being stigmatized by doing it again,” she admits. Now she’s in “Terminator: Genisys” playing a much more fierce character: Sarah Connor, the mother of post-apocalyptic revolutionary John Connor (Jason Clarke), who in the film’s own timeline has been fighting alongside nice killer cyborg T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger, again) since childhood.

Do you feel you’ve been lucky with the roles you’ve received?
If being lucky means being able to work for many years seeking an opportunity, then yes, I’ve been lucky. Television gave me a boost, but I don’t want people to remember me as Daenerys Targaryen from “Game of Thrones”.

The characters you play tend to be very strong. How alike them are you?
I’m not ultra feminist, but I feel that I identify with girls who can do everything, and who use their power to defend good causes. I now get to play with a very different version of a young Sarah Connor, and I like that a female character has become iconic.

Is it difficult to perform such an iconic role?
I think it was more exciting than scary; Sarah is legendary and beautiful. What we did was impregnate her with a different force and create something new.

You seem to gravitate towards action and fantasy.
I have fun. Although for that you have to be in shape and have good arms: holding weapons, shooting and running involves a lot of wheezing. When you see a big action movie, it seems like everything is easy, but when you start to do it, it’s not. Especially with Sarah, who’s a tough woman who becomes a warrior and draws strength from all sides.

Emilia says Game of Thrones season six will have twists in store

Emilia Clarke: Game Of Thrones season six will be ‘sick’
Emilia has teased that the season six storyline will have even more shocks in store for Game of Thrones fans.

The 28-year-old actress, who reprises her role as dragon queen Daenerys Targaryen in the small-screen retelling of George RR Martin’s fantasy novels, has already had a glimpse at the scripts for the forthcoming season.

“I’ve seen some of the new scripts and I’m like a kid on a sugar high,” she told the Daily Star. The British actress continued: “I can’t handle how sick some of them are. “We’re just going to hit the audience with every episode, coming up with something more mental that the last. I can’t believe some of the twists in store.”

Emilia also weighed in on Jon Snow’s fate, hinting Kit Harington’s character will not return. The actress and her Game Of Thrones co-stars have started read-throughs and rehearsals for season six of the show.

Emilia talks to ELLE about Game of Thrones and Terminator

Emilia talked to ELLE about her role as Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones and her role as Sarah Connor in Terminator Genisys. She talks the differences between Daenerys and Sarah Connor and more.

Did Emilia Clarke Just Say Sarah Connor Is More of a Badass Than Daenerys Targaryen?
That’s the Mother of Dragons you’re talking about.

Emilia Clarke is fearless. On Game of Thrones, she controls cities and dragons in Daenerys Targaryen’s quest for the Iron Throne. Off screen, the actress has been fashionably traveling the world to promote her upcoming film, Terminator: Genesys, on crutches due to a hip injury. Literally, nothing can stop her. Which is why we shouldn’t be surprised that nude action scenes in Terminator didn’t scare her, either. “Naked in a harness was fun,” the actress said during a press conference in L.A., reports People. “Doing stunts, that was good. That was interesting.”

Thanks to many steamy Thrones scenes, Clarke has had ample opportunity to find comfort in her own on-screen nakedness. But when she stepped into the infamous shoes of Sarah Connor, the 28-year-old actress entered nude territory: Time traveling in her birthday suit. When you time hop, you can’t wear any clothes, so Clarke strips down so she can levitate opposite costar Jai Courtney in the newest installment of the sci-fi franchise. Thanks to crafty camera angles, Clarke doesn’t appear fully nude in the film (“I had a few things I tried to hide,” she joked).

Marie Claire July issue article, magazine scans and photoshoot outtakes

Emilia was on the cover of the Marie Claire July 2015 issue. You can read the article below. Emilia explains why she turned down the role of Anastasia in Fifty Shades of Grey. Photoshoot outtakes and magazine scans have been added to the gallery.


Emilia Clarke Is Even More Fierce And Fabulous On Our July Cover Than In Game Of Thrones
Emilia Clarke has revealed exclusively to Marie Claire why she turned down the role of Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey. In her cover interview in the July 2015 issue, the Game of Thrones star says she feared she would be typecast if she accepted the role in Fifty Shades of Grey because of her nude scenes in Game of Thrones.

‘I really wanted to work with [Fifty Shades director] Sam Taylor-Johnson because she’s fucking amazing. But there is a huge amount of nudity in the film,’ she explains. ‘I’ll never say, “I’m never doing nudity” because I’ve already done it, but I thought I might get stuck in a pigeonhole that I would have struggled to get out of.’

Dressed to kill in our July cover shoot, Emilia also talks about the epic film role that will further help distance herself from playing Daenerys, Mother of Dragons in the hit Sky Atlantic TV show. She’ll play Sarah Connor (a role originally played by Linda Hamilton) in summer blockbuster, Terminator Genisys.

In preparation she did hours of weightlifting every day. ‘Those fucking guns are super heavy,’ she recalls. ‘You’re running with them a lot of the time, and I needed to keep up with/be better than the boys. I needed to know what to do to have Arnold go: [adopting Arnie accent] “very nice”. That was my goal.’
