  1. Oh my little baby..why r u so innocent..

  2. Dany first 4 seasons was amazing. After that she was where beloved characters went to die (figuratively and literally)

  3. Emilia exitos gracias un abrazo sincero desde Bogotá Colombia gracias ❤️🇨🇴

  4. Stop telling lies.. where are the dragons 😏

  5. 1:21 You've ruined Dragon riding for me Emilia, but that was absolutely hilarious

  6. EMILIA ISOBEL EUPHEMIA ROSE CLARKE YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY GOLDEN.
    also can someone fix the spelling of her name in the title pls, thank you.

  7. They really shoot this behind the scenes just so they have something to show to us when we all know in reality they have real dragons hiding somewhere.

    Edit: I’m in love with Emilia Clark and her eyebrows.

  8. This journalist is incompetent for these interviews. I keep watching them but he still doesn't know anything about anything … WTF

  9. She is LOVELY and a damn fine actress ! Because she does make us think she's preempting the moves of the dragon and speak Dothraki !

  10. The placement of the buttons on her blazer is distracting.

  11. Commend her when she is not just controlling her dragons as Daeny but specially trying to minimize the emotions of her eyebrows while acting😂😂😂😂 You are a star Emilia😘

  12. De Enero a Abril, de Agosto a Diciembre says:

    Definitly a big thanks to her and everybody around to creation of the dragons, those that hold somthing to make it real for us in a screen, amazing job!!!!

  13. She is adorable, she's so funny always makes me laugh 😂🔥 and her eyebrows tho hahha ❤️
    She's great actress, she's best on Emilia and Daenerys, everything about her just amazing ❤️ love you much❤️

  14. Emilia is perhaps the most challenged actress in GOT. First she had to learn Dothraki and Valyrian lines and then she had to act with these green things that are supposed to be dragons. Crazy!

  15. She should've played Belle in Beauty and the Beast.

  16. I saw a Game of Thrones ad while watching game of thrones behind-the-scenes how ironic

  17. I won't be able to control my laughter if i was in her place on that dragon 😂

  18. You did a greaaaat job, I cried when I first watched.

  19. I like AC in generally but he was the worst person to get this episode. He says that he is a fan but he doesn't seem to know anything. I wish they had a real fan doing the interview.

  20. I feel like Dany will die this season and reunite with Drogo and her baby. Remember how the world has to be before they can reunite? Somehow it'll happen.

  21. She's absolutely right. The first time Daenerys rode Drogon at the end of season 5, it looked very fake. The VFX team really stepped up their game, because every time since has looked so much more real. Kudos to them!!

  22. She is like that type of a friend who will always cheer up every situation and very fun to talk to..
