VARIETY – Emilia Clarke may play one of the fiercest and most intense characters on television as Daenerys Targaryen on “Game of Thrones,” but it took a bit of silliness to help her land the job.

While presenting Clarke with the Britannia Awards for British Artist of the Year on Friday night at the British Academy Britannia Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, “GoT” co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss recalled her auditions for the role.

Even after showing HBO executives the pilot for “GoT,” Clarke was asked to audition again for the president of the network.

The meeting took place in “HBO’s corporate theater, which was large, dimly lit and empty except for us two and the president of HBO,” Weiss said. “We were smiling. He wasn’t. It was quite possibly the least inviting audition environment we had ever witnessed.”

After Clarke’s initial reading, said president remained poker faced.

“Emilia asked if there was anything else she could do to lighten the mood and David asked, ‘Can you dance?’ And without missing a beat, Emilia did the robot,” Weiss said. “She did it with commitment and she did it well…and even the president had no choice but to smile. She got the job 10 seconds after she left the room and the two of us ran to tell her before she left the building because letting her get on an 11-hour flight home without knowing seemed like cruel and unusual punishment.”

In her acceptance speech, Clarke suggested that Weiss and Benioff “deserve their own bravery award for hiring someone whose biggest job up until than was catering parties dressed as a Snow White.”

EW – The first footage from the final season of Game of Thrones is here (below). HBO revealed a surprise video Sunday night touting the premium cable network’s 2019 lineup. Included in the trailer is footage from both the previous season of GoT and a few glimpses Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington in the highly anticipated season 8.

 

 

 

Also in the mix: A first look at True Detective‘s long-awaited season 3, Meryl Streep joining Big Little Lies season 2 and the return of Veep following its hiatus for star Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ cancer treatment. The footage aired in front of the season finale of Sharp Objects.

One big title absent from the 2019 trailer: A first look at Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen, which shot a pilot and recently received a series greenlight with a premiere planned for next year.

GoT returns for its final six episodes that will air during the first half of 2019. There have been reports over the weekend claiming the show’s return has been “delayed” to mid-2019 making not eligible for Emmys until 2020. Rest assured, “first half of 2019” means exactly that, and HBO expects the show will air all its episodes in time for the 2019 Emmy eligibility cut off.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Han Solo is setting course for Cannes.

 

Solo: A Star Wars Story will be unveiled at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The screening will occur May 15, 10 days before the Lucasfilm project’s official opening on May 25.

 

Solo stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, as well as Emilia Clarke and Woody Harrelson. Ron Howard, who stepped in following the firing of Phil Lord and Chris Miller last June, directed the film.

 

Star Wars has had a presence at Cannes in the past. Both 2002’s Attack of the Clones and 2005’s Revenge of the Sith played out of competition at the festival. The previous three Star Wars films — 2015’s The Force Awakens, 2016’s Rogue One and 2017’s The Last Jedi — have had their world premieres in Los Angeles. Howard brought his Da Vinci Code to the fest in 2006.

Kit Harington joined in too, all for charity!

 

 

HUFFINGTON POST – To be a fly on the wall for that viewing party.

 

On Saturday in LA, actor Brad Pitt offered up over a hundred grand for the chance to watch an episode of “Game Of Thrones” with Daenerys Targaryen herself, Emilia Clarke.

 

Pitt’s bid of $125,000 was part of a charity event for J/P Haitian Relief Organization & Disaster Relief Organization, founded by Sean Penn to help relief efforts after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.

 

The event was attended by celebs like Lena Dunham, Jason Segel, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Leonardo DiCaprio and Clarke’s “Thrones” co-star Kit Harington.

 

Pitt initially bid $80,000, then increased that to $90,000. After Harrington offered to join Clarke and the winning bidder, Pitt raised his bid to $120,000.

 

Unfortunately for Pitt (but fortunately for the people of Haiti), an unidentified individual won the auction by outbidding him and putting up $160,000 to watch “Game Of Thrones” with Emilia Clarke and Kit Harrington.

 

That’s a large sum to watch one episode, but ultimately for a good cause. By night’s end, the gala raised an astounding $37 million to fund J/P HRO’s relief efforts in Haiti.
