Emilia Clarke Says the ‘More Distance‘ She Has from Game of Thrones the More She ‘Can Quantify It’

Emilia Clarke is looking back at 'Game of Thrones' — and how her feelings about the show have changed over the years — in an exclusive conversation with PEOPLE. The actress portrayed Daenerys Targaryen in the hit HBO series from 2011 to 2019.

While chatting with PEOPLE about her new partnership with Pegasus Distillerie, the actress, 37, also recalls her time starring in the iconic HBO series, in which she portrayed Daenerys Targaryen, and how her feelings about the show have changed over the years. Noting that it "means the world" that fans have such an attachment and appreciation for Game of Thrones, Clarke says she has been able to experience the same feelings now that the series has ended. House of the Dragon, a Game of Thrones prequel series, returns to HBO on Sunday, June 16, at 9 p.m. EST.
