Emilia Clarke Secret Invasion

Secret Invasion: Emilia Clarke Details MCU Character

Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has revealed some new details about her Secret Invasion character in the upcoming Marvel Studios Disney+ series.

How did Emilia Clarke describe her Secret Invasion character?

The actress spoke to Vanity Fair about her character — the Skrull radical G’iah. She revealed that the character has a “punk feeling,” then elaborated on her relationship with her father, Talos — played by Ben Mendelsohn.

“It’s hardened her, for sure. There’s a kind of punk feeling that you get from this girl,” Clarke stated. “She’s a refugee kid who’s had Talos for a dad, you know what I mean? Maybe the fact that we didn’t know he had a kid up until this point tells you everything you need to know about their relationship.

“These people promised a lot of stuff a long time ago, and not a lot has happened. So understandably, a certain amount of resentment has been built. There’s a lot of emotions that live within her, and there’s a lot of confrontational aspects to her character that have come from circumstance. You understand why she has the feelings that she does.”

Secret Invasion is based on the comic series by Brian Michael Bendis, Leinil Francis Yu, Mark Morales, and Laura Martin. The story explored the effects of a gradual invasion of the shapeshifting alien race the Skrulls, who secretly replaced multiple Marvel heroes. The Disney+ series will star Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, Dermot Mulroney, Killian Scott, Christopher McDonald, and Carmen Ejogo.
