"I was on the phone with my publicist and I was like, I need to call my mum! Please can I call my mum!" — Congratulations, Emilia Clarke, on her Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series!
❝It takes a die-hard fan to actually spot me. These HBO events, where I’ll be talking to someone for a fair amount of time, and then suddenly they’re like, Oh sh-t! That’s what you do!—they think I’m some crazy Brit who snuck her way into a Hollywood party.
What costume would you wear for Comic-Con?
Because of my hair, I rarely, rarely get recognized, but I was in America couple of weeks ago, and I was in a lift in a department store and the doors opened and this woman stood there, looked at me and just went, “Khaleesi!” and then the doors closed! So that was bizarre and rarely happens but when it does it’s normally on that kind of crazy scale.
