You know things are intense when the Khaleesi says so.

Speaking with E! News Live from the Red Carpet at the SAG awards recently, Emilia Clarke said that we can pretty much take what we expected Season 6 of Game Of Thrones to be, then multiply it by 9000. Why? Because filming it “almost killed” the cast.

“Every year, every single person in the cast is like, ‘It’s the biggest season ever’ but legitimately this season almost killed us,” she told E!‘s Giuliana Rancic. “It s epic, like it’s huge. . . it’s insane. . . it’s silly.”

Of course, Emilia’s not the only one who has said this is going to be a *huge* season. Sophie Turner said last week that this season’s going to be intense — especially for Sansa Stark.

“This season is a really, really big one for Sansa,” Turner explained to Entertainment Weekly at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. “It’s her really coming into her own. She, this season, really commands the respect that she deserves and she grabs hold of it and she runs with it and it’s really good.”

There has been so much speculation about the sixth season already, especially since season five ended with such a heartbreaking-yet-exciting bang (JON SNOOOOOW). And now, it sounds like this season is legitimately so massive that it’s hard for even the cast to not accidentally dish on a spoiler or two. If you’re *really* trying to avoid spoilers, maybe don’t listen to interviews of Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy) or Emilia, she says, because they’re the two that tend to blurt stuff out the most.

“You get into banter with someone and before you know it you’re like, ‘NO, I just said the whole plotline, whoops!'” she joked to Giuliana.
