Won't be returning for GoT spin-offs: Emilia Clarke
The actress confirms that she is done with the franchise after the final season
Emilia Clarke has no plans to return to the Game of Thrones franchise after the fantasy series ends in 2018. In an interview to Rolling Stone, the actress, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, has confirmed that season eight will be her final appearance, despite the previously announced spin-offs. "I have no doubt there will be prequels and sequels and who knows what else. But I am doing one more season. And then that'll be it," she says.
Clarke says she is unsure about how she will feel once the show ends, having been a part of it since episode one aired in 2011. "There's going to be a shake-up of my identity, I think. And I feel like I'm only going to understand what the last seven years has been, when we stop."
The actress will return in the show's forthcoming seventh season, which will debut on July 16 in the US, and in India on July 18.
