Emilia Clarke says that the new season of Game of Thrones is going to be "mental", in a new interview with the Los Angeles Times.

"I'm saying that obviously because I've read the script for next season. Muwah ha ha! I know stories. It's really exciting."

As one of the most vocal cast members during the show's period off the air, she has so far already dropped hints about the possible fate of Jon Snow following that shocking season five finale.

In the past, Emilia's said that showrunners keep secrets from her - "They know that I can't lie very well" - but specifically mentions that in the 10 new episodes, there'll be no timewasting when it comes to setting up drama.

"It's just go, go, go, go. Shocking moment to shocking moment. Epic moment to epic moment. It's mental; it's epic. And definitely Dany's a part of it."

The end of last season saw Daenerys surrounded by Dothraki horseman, implying that she may be returning to a role as Khaleesi, but this meant Emilia had to brush up on her Dothraki language skills.

"I found it so much easier doing Valyrian than I did learning Dothraki, which is weird because Daenerys' mother tongue is Valyrian. But yeah Dothraki is not my forte. Weirdest sentence ever."

Emilia also discusses in the interview the moment she found out she was nominated for an Emmy in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category.

She was in the doctor's office at the time, and says: "All you want to do is just scream and shout, and you have all these people glaring at you thinking, 'What is that woman on?' So, yeah, I had to try and contain my excitement for that moment. But it was pretty brilliant nonetheless."

And though the Emmys will take place right in the middle of filming the sixth season, Clarke already has made sure she'll be attending.

Up against co-star Lena Headey in the category, she says: "So begins the war of, 'But I've gotta go. You can stay and do your bit of filming. I want to go to the Emmys.' I think there's going to be lots of that.

"I've got my dress already, so, I win."

She adds the show might "be really clever and just shut down filming for a second. But that would have massive repercussions, so I don't know if that would be the case, we shall see."
