Game Of Thrones' Emilia Clarke is riding the season 6 hype dragon to new heights

So we're finally in the same year as Game Of Thrones season six and while there's plenty of time for the hype to reach fever pitch, Daenerys Targaryen herself, Emilia Clarke, isn't helping matters. In a red carpet interview with Eonline (opens in new tab), Clarke actually said the words “I really can’t say much apart from that you’ll see the biggest moments on television that have ever existed.”

Now, if someone from a UK soap said this we'd have politely pushed them into the sea but this is Game Of Thrones and if anyone can even attempt to make good on these promises it's the HBO production. Alternatively it could be the kind of thing you say when you aren't actually allowed to say anything about anything. Unsurprisingly, when it comes to the small matter of Jon Snow and his being alive Clarke isn't giving anything away. "It's just going to be big," she affirmed.

Season 6 takes the story beyond the published books as George R.R Martin confirmed that the latest addition to the series won't be out in time for the show starting in April. When asked how the crew were feeling about the breaking new plot ground, Clarke said that everyone was excited and nervous but there is apparently "something for everyone." Whether that everyone includes Jon Snow, we'll have to wait and see.
