‘The only thing I felt truthfully sad about was that David and Dan are my really good friends, and so it’s for them that I feel heartbreak, because it’s theirs.’

Despite the backlash over the show’s final episodes, Emilia says that she has ‘financial freedom’ thanks to her lucrative turn on the show.

It has been reported that Game of Thrones’ biggest stars such as Emilia and Kit Harington were making as much as $USD 500,000 an episode. 

She told the publication: ‘There is an absolute freedom that Thrones has given me – a gift-wrapped present in a little bow saying, ‘You’re now financially secure enough to not have to panic, so what do you want to do?'”

‘That kind of freedom is wonderful. I could never see it during the time I was filming, because I was too close to it,’ she added.  

Emilia has also revealed in a past interview with E! that after she read the series finale script for Game of Thrones, she ‘wandered’ around trying to wrap her head around it.

‘I kind of had to percolate on it and I had some funny conversations with friends like, ‘You guys think she’s cool, right?” 

The star also told Access Hollywood that she and her co-star Ben Crompton stole ‘an arrow from one of the battles and then we hid it’. 

She added that she will not miss wearing her corset, stating, ‘I didn’t like the corset. The corset didn’t like me. I was in there for sure.’

The beauty will next star in Last Christmas, where she plays a woman suffering a serious illness.
