The Mother of Dragons gets to put on cute face for Glamour France.
“Game of Thrones” actress Emilia Clarke covers the April 2014 issue of Glamour France magazine photographed by Jason Kim and styled by Virginie Benarroch.
On filming: “The entire season begins filming in June until December, touring Morocco, Iceland, Croatia and Ireland. When we start we get the whole story so we know who’s going to go where. [Laughs]. In general, I arrive on the set at 3 AM. A hard day’s filming on average is 12 to 18 hours because there is a lot of preparation in my case.”
On whether or not the cast gets to watch Thrones before its release: “No, nobody receives the DVD before the broadcast. I will watch Season 4, on TV like you. I’ll just hide behind the sofa when I appear on screen.”
On binge watching series like the rest of us: “If I’m obsessed, I can easily spend three days secluded at home to watch it. But I try to put limits on myself to truly appreciate them.”
On understanding the Game of Thrones obsession: “But it’s great, it’s like watching a ten hour movie. You live with the characters and you have the time to understand their history and journey. There is room for the heroes grow and flourish. You can detest a character for three episodes and love them later … as in life.”
On being one of the first of many complex female heroines on television: “Finally, the producers realize how exciting it is to have a central female character in a series. It there’s so much to write and say about women, it is a vast territory to explore. This is an interesting time and I am very lucky to be part of this generation. Our role, through these characters, is to convey a message to all those girls who today are under enormous pressure: stay yourself. And you, the viewer, you can watch all these series that tell you yes, everything is possible.”
On being close with the cast: “We’re a very close family, particularly the band kids: Richard Madden, Kit Harington, Rose Leslie, Alfie Allen and I. This is our first big role for all of us. Rose is my best friend, I see Kit all the time, Harry Lloyd is a close friend, Jason Momoa, it’s like my family when I come to LA.”
She’s really cute here, although it’s hard to tell the outfits apart. There’s no range in the styling.
Not to be bitches or anything (shut it), but she’s doing more emoting in this spread than she’s done on three whole seasons of Game of Thrones.
