When it comes to the hit HBO fantasy drama series Game of Thrones, everybody has their own favourite characters and have their own ideas about what they would like to see happen. One of the things that has delighted fans, is the fact that Tyrion Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen have finally met and enjoyed a few scenes together.
Now, Emilia Clarke, who plays the role of Dany, and Peter Dinklage, who is Tyrion, have both been speaking to Entertainment Weekly about their two characters. In particular, the two stars spoke about what they think their characters could actually learn from one another.
Clarke gave her views on what Dany could learn from Tyrion, explaining, "I think Dany could learn how to get what she wants from Tyrion. Also I think Dany could learn how to crack a joke, maybe. She could learn to stop taking things so seriously and stop just gazing into the distance at some point."
Meanwhile, Dinklage added, "Tyrion could learn how to be a leader. I don’t think he’s good at that. He’s smart, but it’s always in someone else’s ear. I don’t know if he’s well suited for leadership. He wants the same experience he had [advising] Joffrey, but with a qualified person—and that’s what she is. He’s slowly realizing that she’s a perfect combination for him."
Game of Thrones airs on HBO on Sunday evenings.
