Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke

And the countdown to Game of Thrones season three continues!

All week long we're bringing you exclusive scoop on the HBO fantasy hit's highly anticipated return, including interviews with your favorite castmembers, like Peter Dinklage and Emilia Clarke, who play fan faves Tyrion Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen.

While Dinklage and costar Sibel Kekilli (Shae) tease their characters' romance in season three, Clarke was all about Daenerys and her dragons getting shiz down to win back the crown...

"He's falling in love, so that makes anyone a bit more vulnerable, and he didn't see that coming," Dinklage previews of Tyrion's storyline in season three. "It really has sort of dictated his decision making. He doesn't have as much fun, and he's more focused."

Kekilli seconds Dinklage's sentiment about Tyrion and Shae's relationship, telling us, "She's getting more important to him. In the second season, he lost his power and she's one of the few people he can trust. She's supporting him, so I think she's really important because she's honest to him. If he stays there, she can stay there too with him. But if he says, 'Let's go away from here,' she would go with him."

As for Daenerys? Well, she's too busy trying to assemble an army and getting to King's Landing to sit upon the Iron Throne to worry about romance. "She's very much on track for getting to where the action is, but she's not quite there yet," Clarke says. "But the journey is an exciting one!" And fans can expect the dragon mama to stick around for a while on the kill-happy drama as Clarke says, "I'm fire-proof! It's hard to kill me!"

Game of Thrones premieres Sunday at 9 p.m. on HBO.
