WHAT DID YOU THINK of the ending of Game of Thrones? But the turns it took to get there felt pretty rushed to a lot of people.

Clarke said she wanted to share the story with Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow and is the one to deliver the fatal blow to her, but could not. The actress held Yoncé's opinion in high regard as the "Formation" singer has said in the past that the Mother of Dragons is her favorite character on the popular show.

Even people who liked the finale seemed to express some frustration with the speed at which Daenerys' story developed.

She added that she called her mum and said: "I read the scripts, and I don't want to tell you what happens, but can you just talk me off this ledge?"

"Well, I can only speak to my own character, and the people that I interact with on the show".

In an interview with New Yorker about a scene which was tough to film, Emilia divulged: "This is a really weird sentence to come out of my mouth, but I'm going to do it: I couldn't have been raped by anyone more lovely". I stand by her! "When I first started working, I just auditioned for everything, because I like auditioning". They were like, 'What are you asking us this for?

"It was a f-ing struggle reading the scripts", Emilia admitted during the interview.

Trump willing to negotiate when Iran is 'ready' for talks
The tensions have been rising in the area, as the U.S. has deployed additional warships and planes to the Gulf in recent days. Graham, an enthusiastic supporter of U.S. military interventions, said that Trump should "stand firm".

Austrian president suggests September best time for new vote
Elections must be launched "at the earliest opportunity", the chancellor told a news conference Saturday evening. People gather in front of Ballhausplatz to call for a snap election in Vienna, Austria, May 18, 2019.

Jeremy Corbyn says Labour government talks had 'disagreements'
Conservative lawmakers within May's own party will spend the coming months jostling for positions. He added: "We've got to deliver Brexit in this parliament, then we can move forward".

What do you make of Harrington's reaction? I've sweated in the blaze of dragon fire, shed many tears at those who left our family early, and wrung my brain dry trying to do Khaleesi and the masterful words, actions (and names) I was given, justice. We have uglier sides to ourselves. And now our watch has ended.

"And she's making this speech to thousands of people about how she's their queen", the 30-year-old shared.

Clarke insisted that the hit medieval series had a "very attractive and touching ending" but admitted her initial response to the Mad Queen's brutal demise was, "What, what, what, WHAT!?"

Daenerys had plenty of fans cheering her on - until season 8.

"Hopefully, what you'll see in that last moment as she's dying is: There's the vulnerability - there's the little girl you met in season 1".

"I just think that it would be lovely to just let this lie for a minute before doing anything else".

Emilia said there was a worse scene which was harder to film, right at the beginning of episode one where she had to be naked. "Like, I really did feel numb". I stand by her!
