Game of Thrones: Daenerys actress is annoyed about the end of the series

Game of Thrones

The finale of the eighth and thus final season of the popular TV series Game of Thrones continues to cause controversial discussions today. Many fans have been very upset that the showrunners have focused on opulent action scenes in the last few episodes rather than on sophisticated dialogue and character development. The latter was actually the great strength of the series before. Actress Emilia Clarke, known as Daenerys Targaryen, was as shocked as she was angry at the time. After a long hiatus, she recently came back to speak on the subject - and seemed a little more composed than before. In a video interview with MTV, she stated:

"I can understand why people are upset. I can absolutely understand it. However, as an actress, I can't do justice to a character that I've had blood for a decade , Sweat and tears without being on the same side. So I'm not acting like, 'Okay, I'll just do this scene, what the heck. I'm so upset'. You just have to open up. "

Based on this statement it is actually quite easy to see that the controversial finale of Game of Thrones continues to occupy her. However, Clarke doesn't vent her anger quite as openly and vehemently as she did a few months ago. This is mainly due to the time lag between the end of the shooting.

How do you think about the Game of Thrones finale in retrospect? Has your anger gone by now? Didn't you find the ending as bad as many other fans anyway? Write it in the comments!

George R.R. Martin says 'Game of Thrones' book series will end differently than TV show

Martin said he wishes he'd 'stayed ahead' of the show with the books.

The 'Game of Thrones' series finale was among the most controversial moments in television, and George R. R. Martin, who wrote the books the show was based on, admitted he wishes things had ended differently.

The author, who is still writing the sixth novel of the book series, shared his honest thoughts on how HBO's 'Game of Thrones' came to a close with Chicago's WTTW.

Martin said his biggest gripe is that the show outpaced his writing.

'Game of Thrones' premiered on HBO in 2011, around the time Martin published the fifth book in the series. The 72-year-old author said he didn't expect the series to catch up with him so quickly.

'Looking back, I wish I'd stayed ahead of the books,' he began.

George R. R. Martin arrives at the LA screening of Fox Searchlight Pictures' 'Tolkien' at the Regency Village Theatre on May 08, 2019, in Westwood, Calif.

'My biggest issue there was, when they began that series, I had four books already in print and the fifth one came out just as the series was starting in 2011,' he explained. 'I had a five-book head start -- and these are gigantic books! I never thought they would catch up with me, but they did.'

Martin added that, once the show outpaced the novels, showrunners had to take matters into their own hands over how the series would conclude.

'That made it a little strange because, now, the show was ahead of me and the show was going in somewhat different directions,' he remarked, declining to reveal the ending he has envisioned.

'I'm still working on the book,' Martin confessed. 'But you'll see my ending when that comes out!'

It is currently unknown when the sixth and presumed final novel of the series, 'The Winds of Winter,' will be released.

Martin previously said it took him six years to write 'A Dance with Dragons,' the series' fifth novel that was released in 2011.
