Emilia Clarke says she is optimistic about the future of her Game of Thrones character Daenerys Targaryen.

The actor spoke about her character in an interview to Belfast Telegraph.

She said: “Right now, I’m sort of feeling -- with her -- optimistic. She’ll probably need some help, though. I’ll definitely be disappointed if she doesn’t make it.”

Game Of Thrones, which is based on novels by George R.R. Martin, and tells the stories of several royal houses and their quest to claim the ‘Iron Throne’.

Clarke’s character was last seen sailing towards Westeros with an aim to battle for the Iron Throne.

Talking about her determination to become a fair ruler, Clarke said: “I think that there was always that idea that she would know where she was going to, but the reality is frightening.”

“I mean, I always believed that Dany had the highest of hopes for what kind of impact she could leave on this world. She is continuously reaching for purest level of rulership -- is that a word? I just made it up.”

The seventh season of the show will debut on July 16 in the US and will premiere in India on Star World and Star World HD on July 18.
