Clarke and Har­ing­ton 'freaked out' film­ing their first 'GOT' scene to­gether

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Emilia Clarke and Kit Har­ing­ton "freaked out" when they filmed their first 'Game of Thrones' scene to­gether. The brunette beauty, who por­trays Daen­erys Tar­garyen, and her 30-year-old co-star, who is Jon Snow in the pop­u­lar se­ries, have both played ma­jor parts in the fran­chise since it first aired in 2009, but in the last eight years the pair have yet to shoot a scene to­gether un­til re­cently, which they both thought was "weird". Speak­ing to En­ter­tain­ment Weekly about the 'The Queen's Jus­tice' snip­pet, the 30year-old ac­tress said: "Both of us were go­ing, 'Ahhh what are you do­ing on my set!?' "This is weird!" And the 'Me Be­fore You' star, who dons a white wig in the pro­gram, felt she had stiff com­pe­ti­tion on the hair front when Kit ac­com­pa­nied her on set. She quipped: "There's an­other Hair in town, and I don't like it." Kit added: "We were both kind of freak­ing out. "Usu­ally you start work­ing on a movie and meet [a co-star] for the first time and you de­velop chem­istry on screen over time. Here, you know some­body for seven years and you've watched their char­ac­ter on screen all that time. So it's a unique ex­pe­ri­ence as an ac­tor to come to­gether and know the world is watch­ing" How­ever, the Lon­don­born heart­throb knew the pair's char­ac­ters would fi­nally meet in the cur­rent sea­son of the show. He ex­plained: "I pre­dicted, like ev­ery­one, they would meet this sea­son, but I don't think I pre­dicted it quite as quickly. But then again, you've got to take your­self out of the mind­set of the viewer. As far as Jon knows, he's just meet­ing this queen he's heard of and try­ing to ne­go­ti­ate with her- he's not meet­ing Daen­erys, who the au­di­ence has been watch­ing for so many years. That helps with the sur­prise of it. He walks into the room and doesn't ex­pect to see such a beau­ti­ful young woman of sim­i­lar age to him. Any young man's re­ac­tion is go­ing to be, 'Okay...' but he puts that aside be­cause he has to." And the dark-haired hunk has ad­mit­ted he re­lied on Emilia to help him re­mem­ber key el­e­ments in the pro­duc­tion, such as the names of her dragons. He said: "I asked Emilia what her dragons were called again."
