Turner, 23, revealed that Williams, 21, will be the maid of honor at her upcoming wedding to Joe Jonas, during an interview with Entertainment Tonight at the New York City premiere of the eighth and final season of the HBO show.

In her honest and very personal essay, Clarke - who plays Daenerys Targaryen in the hit series - opened up about having to deal with her newfound fame alongside the aneurysm, which can cause extensive brain damage.

"There were bits of Varys' storyline [I didn't like], because I want Varys to just turn around and kill someone to their face or like, just tell everyone everything", she said of the eunuch and manipulative former Master of Whisperers on the King's Small Council, played by Conleth Hill.

Dozens of actors, many of whom were unknown before the medieval fantasy series began in 2011, flew to NY ahead of the eighth and final season of the show, which arrives on HBO on April 14.

"In the years since my second surgery I have healed beyond my most unreasonable hopes", she said.


I told her. And we were joking about it the other day because I was like, 'Well, you know, ' and she was like, 'Do I?' And I was like, 'Yeah, 'cause I told you. The 32-year-old actress does, however, have a lot to look forward to.

Pilou Asbaek, who plays Euron Greyjoy, said fans can expect even more of those moments in the last few shows.

"I don't know why she's thinking about [what she's wearing to my wedding]".

The series, set among warring families in the fictional kingdom of Westeros, is based on novels by George R.R. Martin in a series called "A Song of Ice and Fire". "Oh, you know. Yeah you know, you absolutely know", Clarke said.

The show is known for killing off beloved characters, but numerous actors who saw their characters meet their demise turned up, including Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo), Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell) and Sean Bean (Ned Stark). "I'm probably the only guy with a happy end". I just think it's handsome that.
