Emilia Clarke is an English actress known for her work on screen and stage. She is best known for her portrayal as Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO masterpiece, Game of Thrones. The CEO of Foxtel TV recently spilled some bad words for Emilia Clarke.

At the debut of the newest Game of Thrones spinoff series, House of the Dragon, Patrick Delany, the CEO of Australia’s Foxtel TV subscription provider, called Emilia Clarke a “short, dumpy lady.” He said, “I was like, ‘What’s this show with the short, dumpy girl walking into the fire?'” According to New York Post, Delany later issued an apology for the remark he made to the audience during the event that was not well received.

The Foxtel Group apologies if his remarks were misunderstood and caused any offense…. The aim was to convey that for him, ‘Games of Thrones’ was something very different for television in 2011 and that Emilia Clarke went from relatively unknown to one of the most recognized and most-loved actors in television and film.

Clarke has received a number of accolades, including an Empire Award, a Saturn Award, in addition to nominations for four Primetime Emmy Awards and seven Screen Actors Guild Awards, and a 2019 place on the Time 100. The star of Game of Thrones has spoken up about the two brain aneurysms she experienced while filming the series.

House of the Dragon is ready to drop on HBO on Sunday, August 21st. The highly-anticipated show stars Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, as well as Milly Alcock, and will follow the House of Taegaryn 200 years prior to the events of Game of Thrones. Check out a trailer for the series below.
