The actress said of Daenerys ending: “I felt for her. I really felt for her. And yeah, was I annoyed that Jon Snow didn’t have to deal with something? He got away with murder — literally.
“I knew how I felt [about the ending] when I first read it, and I tried, at every turn, not to consider too much what other people might say.
“But I did always consider what the fans might think — because we did it for them, and they were the ones who made us successful, so it’s just polite, isn’t it?”
Emilia confessed she was upset Daenerys didn’t get a “happy ending,” but she maintains her character was “a gift”.
