Reactions from Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke and Lena Headey on Season 6

As far as TV is concerned, both Emilia Clarke and Lena Headey have been kicking some serious ass, and they just happen to be on the same show. As per the recently announced Emmy nominations (you can check out the list here), Clarke and Heady have both been nominated for Supporting Actress in a Drama (as Daenerys Targaryen and Cersei Lannister, respectively). Well deserved, no doubt, but when the two were done talking about their Emmy nominations, they couldn't wait to give their initial reactions to the scripts for Season 6!

Lena Headey on what's coming in Season 6:

Every year you go ‘What?! Whaaaat!?’ and having read these, it’s the same feeling again...there’s a lot to be very excited about.

Emilia Clarke on her initial reactions:

I’m looking forward to absolutely every part of it, it’s like go-go-go from episode one. You know how sometimes it’s like, ‘we’re just going to remind you and warm you up: remember this and remember that and I bet you forgot his name...’ sort of thing? It’s literally like ‘oh yeah, no chance to catch up, here you go, we’re just gonna hit you with it every episode, with something more mental than the last.

I’m like a kid having a sugar high — I can’t handle how sick these scripts are. We actually got the next load in as well and they’re really good. You know that David and Dan are really happy with a script when in the stage directions they just add their own commentary like ‘yeah, right, bitches, sixth season!’ There’s a lot of that.

Now that the books have more or less been covered, the rest of HBO's Game of Thrones should prove to be a very interesting watch, seeing has how they will deviate from the books a bit more. While I felt that Season 5 was easily the weakest so far, I'm hoping that the writers can rein it back in and return the show to its former glory. The separation from the source material will either prove to be really exciting or a total mistake. I can't wait to find out which!

Season one is still the best because of Sean Bean.

How the hell does Emilia Clarke get nominated for an emmy? Shes the worst actor on the show and an overall bad actress.

I am probably the only one who thought season 5 was almost as good as seasons 1 and 2. Season 3 really dragged for me and although season 4 picked it up a bit, it was a little slow in spots as well.

Good to hear that the momentum of season 6 is a much quicker pace than season 5. On the whole I enjoyed season 5, mostly because I read the book and knew it was more of a re-setting of the board for the story. But even still, it was difficult to sit through some of the episodes.

I'm hoping they trim some of the fat next season (namely everything with Dorne) so they can focus on developing the main character plot threads throughout the season.

Maybe

They can make more ep's too instead of freaking 10. How about 14 LOL it gets over way to quick than I gotta wait for 1 whole year.

It would be nice, but it will never happen. From what I read, 10 episodes is the max budget they can get from HBO. It's either 10 episodes at a consistent quality. Or they go for more episodes with less quality.

It's not a budget issue, I'm sure HBO would throw just about as much money at this show as they possibly could at this point. It's their biggest cash cow. The only issue is time. There's so much involved in shooting this show: filming on location in six different exotic countries, wrangling a cast of over two dozen series regulars, all the post-production fx work, editing, etc. Every year, they're just finishing up work on the tenth episode when the premiere rolls around.

The creative team gets less than a month off between seasons each summer. They literally just don't have time to make more. Think about it, they're essentially cranking out one 10-hour-long feature film every year. It's pretty damn impressive.

"...itís like go-go-go from episode one."

That would be immensely refreshing after the sluggish and uneventful first seven episodes of season five.
