Emilia Clarke talks about swearing in Valyrian; Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner chat about growing up on GoT

GrumpyDany

Emilia Clarke chats about her favorite Valyrian and Dothraki phrases, while Maisie Williams admits that being a teenager while starring in Game of Thrones wasn’t always easy. Sophie Turner visits with WSJ Cafe and GQ this week, as we near the season 6 premiere.

In part 2 of her interview with Entertainment Weekly (you can read our coverage of part 1 here) Emilia Clarke discussed her handle on Game of Thrones‘ fictional languages. Though her character speaks Dothraki fluently, Clarke can’t say the same of herself.

“Dothraki is this weird thing as it goes into your brain for as long as you need it to and then [whisper noise] – it disappears, gone … I was doing this scene with Joe Naufahu and the camera is on him. So my brain goes, ‘We don’t need Dothraki anymore because [the camera] isn’t on me, it’s not on my face, so you can just forget it.’ But annoyingly, I still need to speak even though it’s his close-up. So I found myself making it up and the hilarity that ensued was ridiculous. I looked at him dead in the eye said: ”All-la-tat-tat-tat-TAT-TAT!”

Though she said she doesn’t use Dothraki terminology in her daily life, she does find one Valyrian word to be a handy replacement for expletives: Dracarys. “You’re just like, ‘Dracarys’ and it makes you feel better and the other person has no idea what you’re doing. But in your mind, you’re setting them on fire. So there’s something beautiful about that,” she said.


Maisie Williams spoke to The Guardian about what it was like transitioning from childhood to young adulthood while starring in a hit TV show. Though it certainly had its upsides, she found media scrutiny frustrating to deal with.

“When I came into this industry, I was just a regular girl,” she said. “Now I know people can twist what you say. That’s really tough … It’s not something that really bothers me now … [but] for a long time [it did], particularly when I was 16 and people online were saying, ‘You can’t dress like that, you’re 12’ … So to have that and then everything else from being on the show was mind-blowing.”


Sophie Turner appeared on the WSJ Cafe and discussed her own experience growing up on a television set. She talked about “having a ball” auditioning to play Sansa age 13, the sense of camaraderie amongst the cast members and the blessing of not growing up with stereotypical showbiz parents.

While working on her GQ photo shoot, Turner took the time to play GoT trivia, identifying real vs. fake characters:


For Variety, Emilia Clarke fields fan questions from Twitter, talking about what Dany is up to in season 6 and who she’d love to see back on Game of Thrones.

      By now, it’s probably gaining traction. Apparently, someone dun goofed in a Canadian (?) cable network, which allowed viewers subscribed to On-Demand Services to see the episode in its entirety. Though, I have to say, some of the descriptions sound wacky, so there’s a good chance that it’s incorrect. Avoid looser GoT sites like the plague.

    4. I loved Emilia’s answer to what’s different between Dany from S6 and Dany from past seasons, from the Variety video. This time she’ll just follow her instinct. Should be interesting to see what she’ll do when she doesn’t have any advisors. Also no more Meereen BS and compromising with those who just want to depose her.

    5. Heh, Sophie scored 100% in the GoT trivia. This is the second such game where she’s demonstrated her exceptional knowledge of GoT. I love that because most of the actors, at least from what I’ve seen, don’t know much of that universe outside of their own immediate storyline. Kudos, Sophie!

      I may take a page out of Emilia’s book and say “Dracarys” when someone pisses me off. About 99% of the people in my life would have no idea what I mean anyway.

      Which is weird because Beinoff and Weiss said they were being more careful with when they were releasing stuff to international partners.

      They have to get things to international distributors with some time in advance. Otherwise, the opposite screwups will happen: distributors do not get the show in time. That would be much more damaging for HBO than occasional leaks.

    8. Right, let’s try that again with all the links in……There’s also a brief Richard Madden (Robb Stark) interview in the Guardian today. He’s taking about his new film Bastille Day and says a little about GoT, acting in general and his family/background. Best bit for me is where he said he had to keep up his (fake) American accent between takes on set because his natural Scottish one is so strong no-one could understand it 🙂 He was also on the Graham Norton chat show yesterday (haven’t watched it yet). There is a full length version of the show but it can’t be viewed in the UK for copyright reasons even though it’s a UK show 🙁

      So freaking hilarious! I love Graham Norton. And Joan Collins completely reminds me of my aunt: posh, eccentric, flamboyant, self-absorbed but adorable. Aunt Rubye says that there is this saying, but mostly it is she who says it, that “everybody who’s anybody knows Rubye.” I can see Dame Joan saying exactly the same thing of herself.

      Man, that’s not a very flattering picture of Emilia.Looks like she has bitter beer face.

      It is. It’s a regular feature on certain types of posts on other sites. 😉 It’s from the episode where Daenerys takes Meereen, so when I saw it used for this article, I thought that the Valyrian word in question was from that episode. Interestingly, that’s not the case. Also, the article from EW has a different picture.

      The Mummers' Dragon: noticed that Dany didn’t ‘have’ to choose to bring back her very close friend Kit Harington when asked to name a character that had been killed off that she would like to have back on the screen.

      Wouldn’t it be natural for her to name actors who shared scenes with her in the show? I thought it very sweet she mentioned Harry Lloyd. I wish he had played a different, longer role!

    15. The reloading thing is affecting the countdown clock and story feed, too, at least for me; if I just open the site, the clock is set to the last time I closed the site and no new stories are posted. Then reloading sets the clock correctly and populates any new stories.

      So there’s something funky with how the live site tells the browser cache that there’s a new version. I think. That’s about as far as my IT knowledge goes.

      The fun part is how I noticed for the first time. About a week ago I just knew the day count on the countdown clock was wrong. I’m not one to do math quickly, and it took a good little break to work out that, yeah, I was right. So apparently I have an exact internal countdown clock.

      No idea how I’m supposed to sleep tonight.

      Thank you for the links! Richard Madden is adorable.

      The NFL put out a mock draft using GOT characters and it’s pretty delightful. Ex:

      No. 1 — Jon Snow — Rams
      The ultimate risk/reward pick. Best case scenario: He’s the savior of the seven kingdoms. Worst case: He’s dead.

      http://www.nfl.com/photoessays/0ap3000000654646/season-6-game-of-thrones-mock-draft

      Sports Illustrated did one of their own:

      Brienne of Tarth, TE

      Strong, loyal to a fault and determined. Oh, and just ask The Hound what she can do in the open field. A little worried about the lack of awareness she displayed toward the end of last season (Sansa lit the candle!!), but we’ll work on it.

    34. Mihnea,

      Woah 9 or 10 Million! Hard to imagine, but you may be right, given the hype around this cliffhanger. So stoked. I have casually expected that we may not get much in the way of Jon’s “res”olution in EP1, but I am seriously hoping for it tonight. This reveal is actually 5 years in the making.

      I have also been looking forward to seeing Davos become Jon’s homey. More and more, I am thinking Jon2.0 will be a drastically different man, perhaps needing somebody like Davos to do the negotiating for him.

    35. Isabelle,

      Ha, thank you for those links! Since I’m obsessed with both Game of Thrones and football (all kinds – NFL, college, and the Premier League, or “real football” as those of you outside U.S. might say 😉 ), these GOT character drafts are one of my favorite things, silly though they might be. Always fun to read!

      As a Cowboys fan, I’m hoping that they’ll be able to select Jalen Ramsey, Myles Jack, or one of the other elite defensive players at #4 overall. But if they somehow could add the Night’s King to their roster, as this mock draft suggests? I’d be on board with that! He’s got the highest potential upside of anyone still on the board! And if there’s any owner/GM who would be willing to make a move like that, it would indeed be Jerry Jones.

    38. Sister Kisser,

      I prefer to think of Dez as a firebreathing dragon that can stretch the field and soar as high as necessary to catch any ball thrown his way. But the Night’s King works as well! Either way, he’s a great and powerful wonder of the world who has been gone for a while, but is now ready to assert his presence once again and instill terror into all those who oppose him. Let’s just keep any and all Valyrian steel away from his ankles for a season, OK?

      That quarterback comment hurts. Tony Romo’s got a few more years in him, right? Right? OK, probably not. Even as one of Romo’s biggest defenders, I must admit that it’s time to get a succession plan in place.

      I’m just praying to the Many-Faced God that they don’t sign Johnny Manziel. I would rather have Grand Maester Pycelle running the offense than that guy.

        Quote  Reply

    39. Jared,

      LMAO Grand Maester Pycelle. Rolling. After that scene back in S2?, he might have it in him 😉 Here’s the thing about Romo. The guy’s got heart, so it’s tough to knock him, but I think he’s done, son. Or should be. That said, you have one helluva line to protect him. I watched him from 8 rows back defeat us in our house (Seattle). THAT was a shitty day. Also, the infamous botched hold. THAT was a glorious day (for us). So I may be biased.

      As for Johnny, well, I said it before- Jerry loves his projects! (Maybe he can rez him)

      Yes, Emilia does humor well. I love the trailer for “Me Before You.” Thinking of watching it this summer when it is released. Hope she gets to do some more rom-com. Daenerys Targaryen is not the most well-written or nuanced character, so she kind of got stuck with a character who is in a holding pattern till the end-game.

      I have a lot of respect for your team and what they’ve accomplished over the past few years, however. I watched Richard Sherman and Doug Baldwin play at Stanford when I was there, and I’ve enjoyed watching them achieve such a high level of success in the league.

      Deesensfan,

      I agree. Personally, I hope he gets his life together. But professionally, I don’t want him anywhere near my favorite football team. I just don’t think the skill set that made him such an amazing player in college translates to the NFL level.

    48. Deesensfan,

      I am, since I was five years old. I started following them in the middle of their run of winning three Super Bowls in four years, back in the halcyon days of Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, and Emmitt Smith (still my favorite NFL player ever). I was an impressionable kid, they were always on TV, and the city where I lived didn’t have an NFL team anywhere nearby.

      That might have made me a bandwagon fan in the eyes of some (other than the fact that I was, you know, five). But I stuck with them through the days of Quincy Carter, Chad Hutchinson, Drew Henson, Vinny Testaverde, and aging Drew Bledsoe (to say nothing of Chan Gailey, Dave Campo, and all of JJ’s … eccentricities) before Tony Romo rose from undrafted free agent to starting QB and led the franchise back to something resembling competitiveness, if not quite glory. Since that stretch didn’t break me of my love for the team, I think I can safely call myself true blue, and a Cowboys fan for life.

      Some could call me band wagon for being a Titans fan. I am from Canada so why Tennessee? I started following football when I started to finally understand the rules. It’s a complicated game. And I loved the Steve McNair and Eddie George duo. Who didn’t? So I stuck with them. And even the last few years of pure garbage display lol.
      So I can relate to you!

    52. Ginevra,

      Ah, Moose! Good times.

      Deesensfan,

      Glad to hear it! When you don’t have an obvious geographic or familial allegiance to a particular team, sometimes people can get judgmental. But we love the teams we love, and any reason that led us to them is valid as long as the passion is truly held.

      Steve McNair was one of my favorite players when was in the league. Such a warrior. What happened to him was a shocking tragedy. Eddie George had a great run as well, becoming one of the few Heisman Trophy winners in recent years to have a long and successful NFL career. He was also on the Cowboys very briefly towards the end! He was largely done by then, but I appreciated having him on the team because of what he had accomplished with the Oilers/Titans before that.

      I’ve got a feeling that Marcus Mariota will be a star for your team. He just needs to get healthy, and get some more pieces around him. The haul you got from the Rams for the top pick should help with that.

    53. Jared,

      It’s nice to hear someone say nice things about the Titans. I usually get made fun of. And I don’t live in Nashville so I’m never around any titans fans.
      Yup I remember George going over to the Cowboys. What happened to McNair was so messed up and Titans fans hearts were broken. I remember like it was yesterday. Still a legend.
      Marcus needs an oline. He needs protection. We spent millions on the oline in the last year and it did nothing for us. What a waste. Marcus has so much potential, I just wish we hired a coach who I think could go long term. I don’t see mularkey lasting long and the worst thing you can do to a fresh QB is keep changing up the coaching staff.
      I hope the trade with the Rams pays off. Imagine the Rams go 0-16 and get the first pick next year ? Means we get the first pick 😉 Haha

    54. I won’t try replying to everyone because my comment will just go into moderation for about 4 days. So:
      * You’re all very welcome for the links, glad you enjoyed them! 😀
      * I love that picture of Emilia, she really looks like she’s doing an impression of Muttley from the Wacky Races “rassumfrassumrickrastery!” 😀
      * Apparently the site recently switched servers and the problem is when your device links to cached pages from the old server (loads of people have had it). It should disappear soon, once new pages no longer contain any links from before the change 🙁
      * Ginevra hi honey, it’s almost that time again!! I’m going to swap over to the open chat thread now, I’ll catch up with you there 😀

    55. Ginevra,

      Thank you Ginerva. Yeah, I wrote them. I recorded a friend’s “fun” band (i.e. not a serious project) a couple years ago and they asked me to put some vocals to it. I was in a deep Thrones state at the time, so all the lyrics reflected that.

      I really liked your take on the Simon song above. Humorous, well written, and all very relevant to a very specific, yet unknown event… well done!

      Some more lines from one of the other songs-

      What is your weight in gold?
      Tell me, are you worth your salt?
      Would you imprison your son inside an empty vault?

      You stabbed a king in the back
      And pinned your palm to a cross
      If you fell off your hand would you be better off?

      Blood
      Right
      Blood
      Bound

      Tell me just what is right
      If not for your blood
      Throw a boy from a tower to silence the truth he’s found
      Tell me just what is right
      If not for your blood
      Would you be honor bound to offer a sacrifice?

      Tell me exactly what is honor
      Have you no need for it now?
      Tell me what of your gold, if not for the fear you arouse?
      Tell me exactly what you wanted
      Have you got time for that now
      Why don’t you head back to your hills and make your father proud

      Head back to your hills
      Head back to your hills
      Head back to your hills
      You’ll never make your father proud

      There is another verse that for the life of me, I cannot remember.

    56. Jared,

      That’s awesome. I saw a pic of them recently from their days at Stanford- Sherm was on the sidelines stoking out as Doug made a nice leaping catch.

      I liked the glory days of Dallas- Emmitt was a powerhouse. Incredible runner. Your team will get back there. That’s the cool thing about salary caps and the draft- most teams oscillate, and the pendulum will swing back. It has been cool to finally enjoy some success in Seattle. I went to my first game when I was a kid… Steve Largent was fun to watch, but we had a long stretch rough, rough years as a team.

      Deesensfan,

      Totally agree about Johnny being overrated as F$%&. Mariota and the Braavosi should do really well in a year or two if they build around him. 🙂

    57. Ginevra,

      Hahaha you called it. Definitely not metal, but hard rock. “Oath” is the heaviest riff. I guess this stuff is kindof like QOTSA? I’ll be home in a couple weeks and will dig them up for you. And though he and I share some common ground musically, Wimsey would most definitely not approve 😉 And, thank you. 🙂

    58. Sister Kisser,

      Awesome! I look forward to it. I enjoy hard rock (AC/DC comes to mind, 3 Doors Down) but it’s harder for me to appreciate metal. That’s the old man’s favorite music (Metallica). My girls were all, you have no idea what Daddy listens to in his headphones!
