Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke Thinks Daenerys Should Reject Euron’s Proposal

1 minute read

During a recent conversation with TIME about her new film, Me Before You, actress Emilia Clarke reflected on love, including the romantic life of her Game of Thrones character Daenerys.

In the most recent episode of the HBO drama, Euron Greyjoy declared that he would seduce Dany with his Iron Fleet of ships “and then some,” Clarke says. But the actress doubts he has a shot with the Mother of Dragons.

“Salt water doesn’t look good in that wig,” she says. “Also the handlebar mustache is not really on the top of my list.”

Euron’s proposal came just one episode after the Khaleesi demonstrated her independence by lighting the Khals who threatened her reign on fire.

“I don’t know. Daenerys relying on a big strong man like that? I think those days are over.”
