She needed a hero, so that’s what she became.

I have this intense dislike towards people who call Daenerys weak and say she’s nothing without her dragons.

She has been living in exile literally before she even came out of the mother’s womb. As a child, she had no parents; she never felt what it was like to have and be loved by a mother and a father. She had no permanent home; she was often forced out onto the streets and beg for shelter and food. She had no childhood. She grew up with an abusive brother who sold her in exchange for armies. She has been constantly raped. Her unborn baby died. She was betrayed by people she trusted. So many people doubted her. But she overcame all of those. She never lost faith in herself, she never lost the courage and she never backed down fighting for what she thinks is right. That my friends, is not weakness. Having faith in yourself when everyone else doubts you is bravery. Choosing to get back up no matter how many times life knocks you down is strength. Despite the cruelty life has shown Daenerys, she is still a very compassionate human; she freed slaves and gave them the justice they deserve. Daenerys is anything but WEAK. She is an embodiment of FEMALE POWER.

He is close to Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys, though owing to the series’ vast geography, the two did not film together until season seven. “But we were very good friends by the time we got to the sex scene,” Harington laughs and squirms. “Which is really weird. Usually, you’d turn up and you’d know the actor, but you’re not best mates. The main thing was trying not to laugh. It was like, OK, if we laugh, we’ll never get this scene done, so we’ve got to do minimal takes, then we can crack up about it afterwards.”
