HBO's Game of Thrones has partnered with Omaze to raise money for The Royal College of Nursing Foundation. One lucky donator will be given the chance to visit the set for lunch and other incentives. Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke attempts to take fans on a tour of the set in a hilarious new video promoting the contest. She may be the Mother of Dragons, but she doesn't have much pull in the comedic video.
After setting up the Omaze contest in the new video, Emilia Clarke decides to take the viewers at home on a secret tour of the Game of Thrones set. The video highlights Clarke's comedic acting abilities, which aren't really shown at all in the mega hit HBO series. She's dressed in character as Daenerys Targaryen, setting off alarms, getting told to shut down the operation by co-star Kit Harington, and finally tries to read some of the script from the final season of Game of Thrones in her trailer, which is decked out with a shrine to former co-star Jason Momoa.
The Royal College of Nursing Foundation provides support for nurses, midwives, and healthcare assistants who care for families every day. The Foundation aims to encourage young people to join the nursing profession, fund education and training opportunities, lend a hand to those struggling to meet the rising cost of living and provides advice, and support to get their lives back on track. In exchange for donations, Omaze and Game of Thrones are offering a visit to the set in Belfast, Northern Ireland to have lunch with Emilia Clarke. The contest allows the winner and a friend to attend with airfare and hotel paid for as well as a tour of the set.
There's a lot of secrecy surrounding the current filming of Game of Thrones Season 8. However, small bits of information about the physical demands on the actors have started to leak. The show recently shot the biggest battle scene in series history, which is saying quite a bit after fans witnessed the Battle of the Bastards. Producers sent out a note to the cast thanking them for working long hours in the cold for multiple nights. In a recent interview, Kit Harington was visibly worn out from the previous day on the set of Game of Thrones.
While the end of Game of Thrones is a sad subject for fans, it might be welcome for a lot of the cast who have been filming grueling scenes in less than optimal arrangements to deliver the goods. While filming is currently underway, fans won't get to see the beginning of the final season until sometime in 2019. The official release date has yet to be officially announced by HBO as of this writing, but many are hoping that it comes sooner than later in the year. While we all wait for Game of Thrones to return, you can check out more information about the contest over at Omaze and watch the hilarious video below.
