Emilia Clarke Talks 'Shocking, Epic, Mental' Game Of Thrones Season Six
Game Of Thrones season five was a decisive affair, giving audiences a long, almost arduous build up before delivering a dramatic final run of episodes, starting with the White-Walker battle to end all battles in Hardhome. Fans are already looking to see what season six will bring in 2016. Another slow-paced year or a dramatic run of events like season four? With the show moving into 'beyond the books' territory, the future of the show remains more mysterious than ever.
Daenerys herself, Emilia Clarke, has been talking up next year and remains positively excited for what is coming now that she has started to read the scripts. Talking to the LA Times, Clarke suggested that things would pick up again very soon.
"It’s really exciting. Next season, I’ve said this before, but there’s a lot of seasons where you need to kind of set the scene. And you have a couple of episodes where you’re like, 'OK, feeding information, I get it. We’re finding out about this person. And we know about that person. And oh, there’s that person."
With two more books-worth of stories to tell (if not adapt), Game Of Thrones looks set to be heading towards its 'epic' endgame sooner than we think.
"This season coming up, that we’re about to film, there’s none of that. Clarke continued. "It’s just go, go, go, go. Shocking moment to shocking moment. Epic moment to epic moment. It’s mental; it’s epic. And definitely Dany’s a part of it."
In other Game Of Thrones news - or shall we just call this one RUMOUR - the Twitter account Watchers on the Wall posted this picture of a certain actor returning to Belfast as the show resumes filming.
After the whole 'he hasn't cut his hair' debate at Wimbledon, Watchers on the Wall have pictured Kit Harrington flying into Belfast with fellow Game Of Thrones actor Tom Wlaschiha (Jaqen H’ghar). Whether of course Jon Snow is alive, a ghost, warged in Ghost, a corpse or in a dream sequence remains to be seen, but like the book readers when A Dance With Dragons was released in 2011, fans of the show are refusing to believe he is dead, not when Red Priestess Melisandre turned up at The Wall shortly before his 'demise'.
As for what Jaqen H’ghar could be doing there, we have no idea.
Either way, between Emilia Clarke's comments and the rumours surrounding Jon Snow, anticipation for season six is already high. Can you imagine what it will be like by the time April 2016 rolls by?
