Emilia Clarke of Game of Thrones is referred to by the CEO of Australian TV as a “short, dumpy girl”

Prior to the debut of House of the Dragon, the Game of Thrones prequel series, the CEO of an Australian television business referred to actor Emilia Clarke as a “short, dumpy girl.”

This week, House of the Dragon’s official Australian premiere took place in Sydney. Foxtel CEO Patrick Delany said it while the event was happening. According to a story, Patrick attempted to make a joke during a speech he gave before the screening about the first time he saw Game of Thrones.

“What’s this show about the short, dumpy girl walking into the fire?” I wondered. Patrick was quoted by Variety as stating. He was referring to Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen from the television series, who is known for famously walking through fire. According to the report,  “there was a bit of a gasp” after his comment.

A spokeswoman for Foxtel reportedly stated that the comment was “meant to be self-deprecating.” A statement from the company read, “The idea was to show that for him, Games of Thrones was something extremely different for television in 2011, and that Emilia Clarke moved from being somewhat unknown to one of the most recognisable and well-loved actors in television and film. The Foxtel Group apologises on behalf of Mr. Delany if his comments were misinterpreted and offended anyone.

Because it takes place hundreds of years before Game of Thrones, Emilia is not at all involved in the new HBO prequel series House of the Dragon. The Game of Thrones series finale helped Foxtel achieve the largest overnight subscription growth in company history in 2019.

Foxtel in Australia is where Game of Thrones is shown. In the eight seasons of the original programme from 2011 to 2019, Clarke portrayed Daenerys. The premiere of House of the Dragon is set for August 21. A Game of Thrones spin-off series centred on Kit Harington’s Jon Snow is now being created at HBO, according to Emilia.

Noah Schnapp, the actor who plays Will Byers in the popular Netflix series Stranger Things, has come out as gay. Schnapp made the announcement on his Instagram account, adding a comment to a post that said, “I’m more like Will than I expected.”

Fans of the show were quick to reply to Schnapp’s comment, with many saying that they had always suspected that he was gay. One fan wrote, “We knew,” while another said, “We love you no matter what.”

This is not the first time that Schnapp has spoken out about his sexuality. In an interview with The Times last year, Schnapp said that he was “aware” of the rumors that he was gay, but that he wasn’t ready to talk about his personal life at that time.

It’s great to see Schnapp being open about his sexuality, and we hope that he continues to feel supported by his fans.
