Game of Thrones Season 8 has come and gone but fans are still discussing the final few episodes of the iconic series that finally revealed the answers to several questions, most importantly being - who won the Iron Throne? In the last episode, we see Daenerys Targaryen winning the last war as Cersei Lannister was finally defeated. As she takes over as the Queen of Westeros, Dany stands in front of her trusted army and delivers a bone-chilling speech in Dothraki.

While Emilia made that poignant speech look like a piece of cake, the 33-year-old actress revealed that it was "hell" trying to memorise the script, in Game of Thrones Season 8's 4K Blu-ray and DVD set. Clarke spoke candidly about how that speech was really important and that she spent a huge amount of time learning it. "I'm being so brutally honest here -- I was in hell learning that speech. This pretend language was literally eating me up. I couldn't do it," the Last Christmas star shared, according to Entertainment Tonight.

However, as Emilia puts it, magic happened where she woke up one morning and the speech came out smoothly. The actress explains that what she was probably fighting was not what she was fighting as Emilia but what Dany was doing.

It wasn't just the speech that will be etched in GoT fans' hearts but also the symbolism of Khaleesi walking with Drogon's wings as her background that really sealed the significance of the winning sequence. And then she was killed!
