Emilia Clarke thinks House of the Dragon is weird

The Game of Thrones star just explained why she hasn't watched House of the Dragon yet and why she probably never will.


It might seem like everyone from Winterfell to Dorne has watched and re-watched House of the Dragon at least once, but it appears this isn't the case. Believe it or not, Emilia Clarke, who plays one of the few living Targaryens in Game of Thrones, can't bear the thought of watching the downfall of her once proud house. However, once you hear her reason, you can't exactly blame her.

We'll leave it up to you to try and figure out how Daenerys Targaryen is related to the Targaryens in House of the Dragon.

Here's what the Daenerys Targaryen actress had to say about watching House of the Dragon when asked by Variety:

It’s too weird. I’m so happy it’s happening. I’m over the moon about all the awards… I just can’t do it. It’s so weird. It’s so strange. It’s kind of like someone saying, ‘You want to go to this school reunion that’s not your year? Want to go to that school reunion?’ That’s how it feels. I’m avoiding it.

We'd have to admit, it'd be pretty weird to watch your ancestors have a go at each other, figuratively, literally, and sexually, in a war that ultimately led to the downfall of the once mighty dynasty. Also, can you really blame Clarke for not wanting to watch a TV show she was a part of for the better part of the past decade?

Fans have been asking for Emilia Clarke to come back as Daenerys Targaryen in the Jon Snow spin-off.

With that said, House of the Dragon still isn't over, with at least three more ten-episode seasons to go if George R.R. Martin has his way. Who knows? Clarke might change her mind and watch the story of her forefathers unfold.

Speaking of the last few remaining Targaryens, the one true heir to the Iron Throne, Jon Snow, is reportedly coming back in the series' first-ever sequel spin-off.

Unfortunately, the status of the Kit Harrington-led TV show is still unclear after George R.R. Martin revealed that HBO had canceled a handful of spin-offs. The infamous procrastinating author should know since he's said that he's heavily involved in all of the Game of Thrones content right now after what happened with the original show.
