TV- Taylor Swift, a big fan of HBO hit show Game of Thrones like many others, had her own takeaways from the final which aired this year in May.
The show based on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire concluded in May after eight successful seasons. In the end, Daenerys Targaryen turns into a mad queen who burns the Kings Landing and is eventually killed by her lover Jon Snow.
In a recent interview, Swift talked about the show’s ending and who was her favourite character.
Speaking with Rolling Stone, Taylor confessed that she related to Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) the most.
She said (via), "Like, obviously I didn’t want Daenerys to become that kind of character, but in taking away what I chose to take away from it, I thought maybe they’re trying to portray her climbing the ladder to the top was a lot easier than maintaining it, because for me, the times when I felt like I was going insane was when I was trying to maintain my career in the same way that I ascended."
Taylor also weighed in on the power politics of the series and surmised, "It’s easier to get power than to keep it. It’s easier to get acclaim than to keep it. It’s easier to get attention than to keep it.”
Even though season eight was critically panned and earned fans’ wrath, it has been nominated for a record 32 Emmy awards.
