Game Of Thrones Star On The Secrecy Of Final Season

HBO’s popular and well-received TV series Game of Thrones returns in July for Season 7, with the final season to come later. Now, actress Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, has spoken up to say she and her castmates are basically in the dark about how the show will wrap up.

“No one knows anything,” she told the Los Angeles Daily News (via IGN). “No one is told anything. It’s all crazy. It’s a secret from the cast. We generally can’t be trusted. They pretty much have told us so.”

Game of Thrones Season 7 premieres on July 16, with the eighth and final season to follow sometime after. Season 7 has seven episodes, while Season 8 has only six.

Though Game of Thrones is expected to wrap up after Season 8, HBO has been clear that it might pursue some kind off offshoot of the series, potentially a prequel.

Also in the interview, Clarke said what she could about one of her other upcoming high-profile projects: the Han Solo Star Wars movie. She said she couldn’t say anything at all about the film, in part because Lucasfilm is apparently even more strict about leaks than HBO is.

“I genuinely can’t tell you anything other than [young Han Solo actor Alden Ehrenreich] is magnificent, and it’s a delight to do something on that level with really cool actors and nice people,” she said. “But it’s even scarier talking about that than Game of Thrones.”

The character Clarke plays has not been revealed. In addition to Ehrenreich and Clarke, the film stars Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian. Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge are also set to appear in the movie.

The untitled Han Solo movie premieres in May 2018.
