In a new interview, Emilia Clark discussed everything from her role in the new Han Solo-centric Star Wars spin-off movie to the few indie films she has managed to cram in-between playing dragon momma for Game of Thrones. Of course, Clarke is sworn to secrecy about anything that may or may not happen in the upcoming seventh season… though, interestingly, she has a new film role that may be even more secretive than that!
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau was similarly secretive about Jaime’s journey in another interview, though he does allow himself to idly theorize about what may happen with the two powerful blonde women with whom Jaime has a complicated relationship.
Los Angeles Daily News got to sit with Clarke and talk about Voice From the Stone, an indie in which she stars that comes out this week, though it was filmed two years ago. However, Game of Thrones came up as well, in particular the silence the cast and crew must keep. In fact, now that the show is beyond the books, Clarke can genuinely claim to have absolutely no idea about what’s coming in the final season. Until the cast receives the scripts, they will just not be trusted with the much-coveted ending:
“No one knows anything. 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.”
But Game of Thrones isn’t the only hyper-secretive project in which Clarke is involved, not since she signed on to play a yet-undisclosed role in the upcoming Star Wars spin-off. Everything is a secret about this movie —and that’s including the title, which as of now is just “Untitled Han Solo Project.” When asked about the film, Clarke claims not even Game of Thrones can compare with the level of secrecy she is under for Disney:
“I genuinely can’t tell you anything other than Alden [Ehrenreich, who plays Han Solo] is magnificent, and it’s a delight to do something on that level with really cool actors and nice people. But it’s even scarier talking about that than Game of Thrones.”
In the Harper’s Bazaar interview about Coster-Waldau’s new Netflix film Small Crimes, the actor opened up just a bit about Jaime’s relationship with Cersei, and the dark path to which it may lead. There has long been a theory that Jaime may kill her sister and lover, and Coster-Waldau reiterated what he has previously said about the issue:
“I heard that theory, and it absolutely makes sense. It would be a perfect little nod. But who knows? You’ll have to watch the show [laughs]. It’s a good theory”, the actor conceded. But there is a catch: “I always thought maybe it’s too neat, but who knows.”
But Cersei isn’t the only woman in Jaime’s life. There is also Brienne, with whom a certain red-bearded wildling seems to have gotten quite smitten. What does Jaime think about this possible Tarthbane relationship? Apparently nothing, because he can’t:
“I don’t think he knows about it. He’s not on social media, so he’s not getting the play by play”, the actor jested, cleverly avoiding the spirit of the question.
Fair enough, Nikolaj. But what would he think, if he knew? Would Tormund’s advances make Jaime realize that, perhaps, he has his own buried feelings about Brienne? As an ardent proponent of their relationship, I’m very much looking forward to find out!
