Story highlights

The petition didn’t go down well with the writers and makers of the show along with some members of the cast who pointed out that a lot of effort went into making it.

Even though ‘Game of Thrones’ wrapped last Monday, the show has been in the news as fans signed a petition asking for a remake of season 8 of the hit show. Fans expressed their disappointment at the show’s final season as many thought that the makers rushed through the season without offering explanations for many plot twists.

The petition didn’t go down well with the writers and makers of the show along with some members of the cast who pointed out that a lot of effort went into making it. Kit Harington, Sophie Turner was among the first few to trash the idea. 

Now, Emilia Clarke who played the dragon queen on the show has opened up on the petition as she reveals that if it’s ever happening, she would be ready to shoot again.  She said, "Oh, my goodness. Well, I can only speak to my own character and the people that I interact with on the show. But I would’ve loved some more scenes with me and Missandei. I would’ve loved some more scenes with me and Cersei," she said. 

She went on to add, "Yeah. I would’ve loved some more scenes between Grey Worm and Missandei. I would’ve loved to see a bit more between Cersei… I feel like there was… The genocide was there. That was always going to happen. And I just think more dissection and those beautifully written scenes that the boys have between characters—that we are more than happy to contently sit there and watch ten minutes of two people talking because it’s beautiful. I just wanted to see a bit more of that. But I’m in no position to critique the geniuses that have written eight seasons’ worth of wonderful stuff."

In another news, Emilia Clarke was close to becoming the only woman to meet both Tony Stark and Starks of Winterfell. Also read: 'Game of Thrones' writer: A dead character was supposed to live
