In a clip from the Game of Thrones Season 5 Blu-ray set, Peter Dinklage & Emilia Clarke reflect on how they felt when their storylines finally collided and what’s in store for their characters in the coming season.
Dinklage reveals that the showrunners decided that Tyrion is the best man for the job in the absence of Daenerys:
“Once the queen is gone, who’s gonna be organizing everyone and keeping everybody under control.. We quickly decided that I am the best man for the job”.
Clarke teases season 6, calling it ‘darker’ and with ‘more cliffhangers than any other season’. She also shares her excitement over working with Dinklage, calling the whole experience a ‘gift’:
“I think Peter is phenomenal, and getting to act with him has been such a gift.”
Game of Thrones Season 5 Blu-Ray/DVD set releases April 15 and is available for pre-order on Amazon. You can check out the clip below.
