Story highlights

After ‘GoT’ wrapped last Monday, the stars have now gotten talking about what they did all these years as they filmed for the epic show.

‘Avengers’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ are two things we will surely miss as the two franchise wrapped this year, giving us a closure that we didn’t need? 

After ‘GoT’ wrapped last Monday, the stars have now gotten talking about what they did all these years as they filmed for the epic show. Emilia Clarke who played the dragon queen revealed that she was offered Dakota Johnson’s role in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ but she gave it a pass because of the sex scenes as she thought that those scenes would become that only thing that’s talked about. 

In another interesting revelation, we now know that the actress could also have been a part of the Avengers universe. She was close to being cast in ‘Iron Man 3’ with Tony Stark and we could have had memes of her doing a double date with the Starks of Winterfell (GoT) and Tony Stark.

‘Iron Man 3’ writer Drew Pearce took to Instagram and shared a picture of the reading table. The picture shared featured Drew's name with his character name. In the caption, he revealed that ‘GoT’ Emilia was also part of the movie. However, destiny had other plans for her. He wrote, "My finest hour: at an early Iron Man Three table read. Downey, Cheadle, Emilia Clarke (long story, the script changed)... all vaguely terrifying. Obviously, this was in 2012 when everyone was more racist and thought all British people sounded the same. Still, belated apologies to @paulbettany and I hope I didn't let him down." 

Meanwhile, Emilia had already started work on ‘GoT’ in 2011. ‘Iron Man 3’ released in 2013.
