Emilia Clarke has ratcheted up the hype around the final episodes of Game Of Thrones by describing them as "mental".

The 32-year-old actress, who plays Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO fantasy series, has also revealed that upcoming episodes will be "even bigger" than the last.

In episode three, most of the major characters were plunged into a bloody battle that lasted for the duration of the show. Now Clarke has told fans to expect even more action in future instalments of the final series.

Speaking on US chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live, the actress said forthcoming episodes "are going to be mental . . . Episode five is bigger. Four and five and six - they're all insane," she said.

She then urged fans to: "Find the biggest TV you can."

The show's latest episode, The Long Night, was shot over 55 nights, according to the star. She said: "What you saw was really what it was like shooting it.

"There was blood and mud and angry screaming people. And backstage there was blood and mud."

She added: "It was amazing we didn't actually kill anyone. It was extraordinary."

Clarke also admitted that her own friends do not watch Game Of Thrones.
