Emilia Clarke Called a ‘Short, Dumpy Girl’ by Australian TV CEO, Company Apologizes for Causing ‘Any Offense’
Zack Sharf HBO’s “Game of Thrones” prequel series “House of the Dragon” touched down in Sydney this week for its official Australian premiere, but the event quickly turned controversial after Patrick Delany, the CEO of Australian television company Foxtel, referred to Emilia Clarke as a “short, dumpy girl.” Foxtel, an Australian pay television company, is the country’s home for “Game of Thrones.”As reported by Australian publication Crikey (via Vanity Fair), Delaney was giving a speech ahead of the “House of the Dragon” premiere screening and tried to make a joke about the first time he watched “Game of Thrones.” The CEO said, “I was like, ‘What’s this show with the short, dumpy girl walking into the fire?’” Delaney was referencing Emilia Clarke’s character, Daenerys Targaryen, who famously walks through fire during the series. An attendee at the Sydney premiere told Crikey that “there was a bit of a gasp” after Delany made the comment.A Foxtel spokesperson told Crikey after the event that Delany’s remark was “meant to be self-deprecating.” The company issued a statement that reads: “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.“On behalf of Mr Delany, the Foxtel Group apologies if his remarks were misunderstood and caused any offense,” the statement concluded.Since “House of the Dragon” takes placed hundreds of years before “Game of Thrones,” Clarke is not involved in any capacity with the new HBO prequel series.
Emilia Clarke says surviving haemorrhage was 'remarkable' as large part of brain is 'dead'
Emilia Clarke, 35, has opened up about suffering two brain haemorrhages in a new interview.The Game Of Thrones actress had a subarachnoid haemorrhage caused by a ruptured aneurysm in 2011 and then suffered a second aneurysm in 2013.Appearing on BBC One’s Sunday Morning, Emilia said: “I had a couple of brain haemorrhages and you gain a lot of perspective and it puts your head in a different place when dealing with the kind of juggernaut of being on a successful show.”Explaining her ordeal, Emilia recalled: “It was just the most excruciating pain, huge vomiting, trying to regain consciousness.“I kept asking myself all these questions, I kept hilariously saying lines from the show in my head because I knew for some reason that If you are throwing up and you have a headache then that’s not good for your brain.”Reflecting on the horrifying experience, Emilia says it was “helpful” to have Game Of Thrones to “sweep her up” and give her a “purpose”.On the status of her health now, she continued: “The amount of my brain that is now useable, it is remarkable that I am able to speak sometimes articulately or live my life completely normally with absolutely no repercussions.“I am in the really, really small minority of people that can survive that.”Presenter Sophie Raworth then asked the actress whether she had seen a scan of her brain, she replied: “Yes, and there is quite a bit missing, which always makes me laugh."It’s because strokes, basically, as soon as any part of your brain doesn’t get blood for a second, it is dead, it’s gone.“So the blood finds a different route to get around but whatever bit is missing is therefore gone.
