The last season started with Daenerys and Jon getting ready to try to conquer the Iron Throne, but after burning King’s Landing and everyone in it, Jon stabbed her in the stomach, killed her, and ended her reign of terror.

Clarke had known the ending for years, revealing that when the show finally came to an end, ‘I felt like I was coming out of a bunker. Everything felt very strange. ‘

‘I knew how I felt when I first read it, and I tried not to think too much about what other people might say at every turn, but I always considered what the fans would think – because we did it for them and they were the ones who made us successful, so … it’s just polite, right? Clarke added.

Aside from the ending, many fans criticized the last season for being just six episodes, with the first five seasons coming in 10 episodes each.

“We could have done it a little longer,” Clarke admitted, while adding the show could have used more dialogue.

“It was all about the set pieces. I think the sensational nature of the show may have gotten a huge amount of airtime because that makes sense, ”she said.

When asked if she was happy, the show ended when it happened, she said happy is a ‘funny word’, adding, ‘Again, the show was so great. I was a little cog in a very, very, very big machine. ‘

While adding that the show gave her a routine she could fall back on every year, she admitted that being a ‘cogwheel’ isn’t always a good thing.

“Doing a show that so many people had an opinion on doesn’t serve your creativity at any level,” she said.

Clarke plays in The Seagull, which can be seen at the Playhouse Theater in London until May 30.
