Khaleesi has spoken! After kidding around about potentially spoiling the final season of Game of Thrones, series star Emilia Clarke is “deadly serious” when she says that even she doesn’t know how the hit HBO series will end. In an interview with Clarke released by The Hollywood Reporter via Scott Feinberg's "Awards Chatter" podcast, Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, admits she’s just as in the dark about who will win the Game of Thrones or who will die in Season 8 as fans are.
When asked if she knows how Game of Thrones will end, she says: "I don't know that I even do now. I'm being serious. I think they're filming a bunch of stuff and they're not telling us. I'm being serious. I'm being deadly serious. I think that they don't even trust us."
Clarke adds: "There's lots of different endings that could happen; I think we're doing all of them and we aren't being told which is actually what's going to happen."
This jibes with earlier reports that some cast members won’t be given scripts for the show’s eighth and final season in advance, while others won’t be given scripts at all. And since the TV series has now outpaced author George R.R. Martin’s books on which it’s based, the cast no longer even has the books to use as guideposts anymore.
Clarke also discusses her role in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story in the interview, confirming that although she's signed up to do more Star Wars films, she has no idea if she'll actually be used in them.
“I think it's like an insurance thing,” she hypothesizes.
Game of Thrones’ eighth season is set to air next year on HBO.
