Emilia Clarke Says She Won’t Watch ‘House Of The Dragon’ Because ‘It’s So Weird’
‘Game of Thrones’ star Emilia Clarke has no interest in watching the show’s spin-off, ‘House of the Dragon’.
Clarke, who starred as Daenerys Targaryen in the fantasy drama series that ran from 2011 to 2019, told Variety that she avoided watching the show’s prequel, “House of the Dragon,” because that she “just can’t do it”.
All about the Targaryens, “House of the Dragon” tells the story of the royal family’s civil war that took place approximately 200 years before the events depicted in the original series.
Based on parts of George RR Martin’s 2018 novel “Fire & Blood”, the legendary show stars Paddy Considine, Emma D’Arcy, Matt Smith, Tom Glynn-Carney, Milly Alcock, Emily Carey, Olivia Cooke and Rhys Ifans.
When asked about connecting to the prequel series, the British actor passionately declared why watching the series was a tough pass for her.
“It’s too weird. I’m so happy it’s happening. I’m over the moon about all the awards…I just can’t do it. He is so weird. It’s so weird,” Clarke said exiting the Sundance Film Festival while promoting her new romantic comedy, “The Pod Generation.”
Comparing watching the show to an awkward run-in with old classmates, Clarke added, “It’s kind of like someone saying, ‘You want to go to that school reunion that’s n “Isn’t your year? Do you want to go to that school reunion?” That’s how it feels. I avoid it.
Elsewhere in the conversation, Clarke showed her love to Miguel Sapochnik, the series’ Season 1 co-showrunner, who also teamed up with her to film some pretty epic “Game of Thrones” episodes.
“Love it. Brilliant. Wonderful,” she said of the director.
Clarke isn’t the only “GoT” star who didn’t seem too eager to watch “House of the Dragon.”
Talk with the Associated Press in 2021, Kit Harington — who starred as Jon Snow on ‘GoT’ — shared his reluctance to sign on to the show, adding that “there’s going to be a rawness there.”
“There’s emotion to that for me,” he said of the show at the time. “I think seeing people wearing outfits and costumes that look like what we’ve been wearing all these years, and that [has] the same music, the same style and the same tone, but not being in it is always going to feel – there is going to be a rawness there.
“House of the Dragon” is available to stream on HBO. Season 2 should be released in 2024.
