Foxtel Apologizes to Emilia Clarke Over CEO’s Insulting Remarks at House of the Dragon Premiere


Foxtel Group CEO, Patrick Delany, issued an apology to Emilia Clarke, former “Game of Thrones” star, after making insulting comments during the “House of the Dragon” premiere in Sydney. Delany referred to Clarke as a “short, dumpy girl” in what he claimed were meant to be lighthearted remarks about his initial impressions of “Game of Thrones.” The comments sparked controversy, and Foxtel Group released an apology, stating that the intention was to highlight Clarke’s transformation from relative obscurity to a beloved actor. Clarke, who played Daenerys Targaryen in “Game of Thrones,” does not appear in “House of the Dragon,” a prequel focused on Daenerys’s ancestors.
