Emilia Clarke, whom most of us know as Khaleesi, has been dipping a toe into film lately, probably preparing for Game of Thrones’ eventual end. She had a starring role as Sarah Connor in Terminator: Genisys over the summer, which wasn’t… super, but it looks like she’s digging the franchise thing. Tonight, the official Star Wars Twitter account announced that she’s heading to a galaxy a fur piece from our own to meet up with Han Solo and his furry Wookiee buddy.
As if the wait for Game of Thrones Season 7 weren’t long enough, recent weeks have seen all manner of perfect pairings coming together via set photos and rumors. It now seems the mother of all meetings is finally upon us as well, with super-spoilery set videos finally singing our Song of Ice and Fire.
It’s an even longer road than usual to Game of Thrones Season 7, and production has their work cut out for keeping things under wraps. Recent reports have suggested all manner of fan-favorite crossover, while the latest shows us what might be Daenerys’ new home, and another incredible meeting.
Game of Thrones dominated the Iron Throne of the Emmys for the second year in a row. And honestly, who was surprised?
Even at a reduced episode order, Game of Thrones Season 7 brings with it the likelihood of even more character connections than the prior year. We know travel times are no longer a concern, but a new Season 7 production report places a surprising figure within striking distance of King’s Landing.
Game of Thrones fans have generally presumed that George R.R. Martin’s “Song of Ice and Fire” refers to an inevitable pairing between Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, something the HBO adaptation has seemingly made clear with a host of parallel imagery. At least one major Season 6 reflection wasn’t intentional, however, as Kit Harington calls it a “happy accident.”
Game of Thrones Season 6 gave the internet plenty to chew on, between the baddest li’l lady in the North, or Tormund’s sexy bread-eyes for Brienne, most recently setting alight a fleet’s worth of ships for Yara and Daenerys. Said subtle flirtations weren’t in the written script, according to Gemma Whelan, who says “Emilia and I both enjoy the idea” of continuing their relationship in Season 7.
Days ahead of the Season 6 finale, Game of Thrones fans don’t yet know how many more episodes lie ahead in Seasons 7 or 8, but that isn’t stopping the cast from cashing in. A new report suggests the bigger Game of Thrones stars are in for a major payday in the final seasons, simultaneously laying to rest theories of which character dies in “The Winds of Winter.”
Days from its premiere, Game of Thrones is still keeping a fairly tight lid on penultimate Season 6 installment “Battle of the Bastards,” to say nothing of its “Winds of Winter” finale. That said, the big battle might not be all this Sunday has to offer, as a leaked report suggests a major meeting will be taking place, perhaps forming the next great ship to rival Tormund and Brienne.
Mother of Dragons, Breaker of Chains, Khaleesi, First of Her Name, Queen of the Andals and the First Men; Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen has a lot of nicknames. But the ‘Game of Thrones’ actress is looking to add one more to her resume: James Bond. Or I should say, Jane Bond.
