Emilia Clarke of Game of Thrones is promising that season 6 will be all fans could hope for.

Clarke, who was nominated among the 24 Emmy nominations for the HBO series for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama for her role as Daenerys Targaryen, told the Los Angeles Times, the next season of Game of Thrones will be outstanding.

“There’s so much in store for her,” Clarke said of the Mother of Dragons. “I’m saying that obviously because I’ve read the script for next season. Muwah ha ha! I know stories. It’s really exciting.”

Clarke said this season will be different in that it won't take its typical time to introduce characters and plotlessness. Instead, the show will get off to quick start that doesn't stop.

“It’s just go, go, go, go,” Emilia Clarke said. “Shocking moment to shocking moment. Epic moment to epic moment. It’s mental; it’s epic. And definitely Dany’s a part of it.”

Clarke, who is going head to head with costar Lena Headey for the Emmy, says she is excited to compete with the friend she "admires."

"I definitely think we’re going to have a lot of fun with that," said Clarke. "I admire — truly, everything I say now you’re going to think, “Oh yeah, of course you would say that, of course you are.” But quite honestly, I remember asking her for advice from Season 1. I admire her so much. I think that the work that she does on our show is absolutely exceptional. And I think that she’s so brave."

Emilia Clarke went on to gush about Lena.

"With every season, it gets more messy with her, and with her character in this brilliant way. And then last season saw her being torn down from her high place, all powerful position. And then you get to see this really guttural, visceral performance; it just broke my heart. I’m so excited, bloody happy and proud of everyone who is involved, and everyone who made it possible. Lena and I wouldn’t have the nominations if it weren’t for the 22 other nominations and for all the people who made it possible."
