BROADWAY WORLD – Emilia Clarke, is set to visit the West End to star in the play Five Times In One Night, by American playwright: Chiara Ati.
The production will head to the West End in the summer of 2018 and will reunite Clarke with director Thea Sharrock, who helmed the hit drama, Me Before You.
Sharrock and producer Caro Newling of Neal Street Productions, will mount the production next year once the Star Wars anthology film centered around Han Solo starring Clarke opens in spring 2018.
The play investigates the lives of five different couples over five different eras with just two actors playing all the parts. There has been no casting announcement for the male lead. (source)
During the past weekend (Sunday March 12th and also Monday March 13th) Emilia was in Naples (Italy) for filming her brand new spot for Dolce & Gabbana ‘The One’ Fragrance – for which she was announce as the new face on Sunday morning.
Some photos of her filming – looking beautiful in a black sheath dress, with her warm smile (and a wing!) dancing with the actors for the spot – have been added to the gallery.
The fans there said she was very kind, stopped for autographs and photos. In fact, I’d like to thanks Martina and Dora for allowing me to add the couple of pics they’ve taken of Emilia in the gallery!

The very first trailer for Emilia’s new movie Voice from the Stone is finally here! The movie looks so GOOD but also incredibly creepy! I can’t wait to see it! And it was also filmed in Italy – in Tuscany which is a beautiful region. Be sure to go see it in theatre if you can, or buy the digital HD version (like me!)
USA TODAY – Emilia Clarke has faced down her share of deadly screen foes as Sarah Connor in Terminator Genisys and Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones.
It’s a different story when the British actress is placed in a beautiful but moody Italian castle, including one creepy room featuring a real hawk, for the supernatural thriller Voice from the Stone. Even Clarke got a little freaked out.
“That hawk never stopped making me scream,” says Clarke, 30. “Oh, man, the castle we filmed in was scary. I don’t believe in ghosts but if there was anything to make me question that, it was shooting there at night.”
Clarke survived the haunting ordeal of making the movie, which reveals its first trailer at usatoday.com before arriving in theaters (it’s simultaneously available via video on demand and digital HD) April 28.
The story marks director Eric Howell’s four-year journey to bring what he calls an “Hitchcockian fairy tale,” based on the 1996 novel of the same name by Silvio Raffo, to the screen. Howell’s prospects for getting his first feature off the ground were boosted significantly by bringing aboard Clarke, the Game of Thrones standout who propelled the love story in last year’s romantic hit Me Before You.
Clarke says the script “stole her heart” and she jumped to play Verena, a young nurse who specializes in helping children deal with trauma in 1950s Tuscany. Verena is hired to work with a young boy named Jakob (Edward Dring), who is so distraught by the sudden death of his mother, a renowned pianist, that he has stopped speaking.
This is no Mary Poppins: Verena has to work with Jakob’s increasingly erratic behavior and belief that his deceased mother is speaking to him from the castle walls. Verena tries to flee the disintegrating situation, but her love for Jakob and her romantic relationship with his father Klaus (Marton Csokas) pull her back.
The house’s hold on Verena is “mixed in with all of the loneliness she has felt in her life as a nurse who is always moving from one family to another,” says Clarke. “It seems that happiness is only a family away.”
Shooting in the town of Siena in beautiful Tuscany and in another castle located in the Italian province of Viterbo, just outside Rome, made for idyllic settings.
“It was heaven on earth, for sure. It felt like I was on vacation every day,” says Clarke. “And, hello, two-hour lunches.”
Howell had his moment of reckoning when setting up Voice from the Stone‘s first shot in the beautiful light of a stunning 15th-century castle.
“You’ve spent all the time getting all the pieces together for the movie,” says Howell. “You’re picking the wardrobe, the hair, finding the perfect location, waiting for the light. And you turn the camera on as Emilia Clarke steps into the frame and you gasp. We realized in that moment we had something truly magical.” (source)
Together with the trailer have been released new production stills, and also a promotional poster (few days ago). Be sure to check them in our gallery!

STAR WARS – Cameras are rolling on the adventure-filled past of the iconic scoundrel and everyone’s favorite Wookiee; principal photography on the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story officially began February 20 at Pinewood Studios, London.
The movie will explore the duo’s adventures before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, including their early encounters with that other card-playing rogue from a galaxy far, far away, Lando Calrissian.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are directors co-piloting the movie, with a cast that includes Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, with Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca.
“Watching such inspired people from all over the world, with such unique voices, come together for the sole purpose of making art, is nothing short of miraculous,” Lord and Miller said. “We can’t think of anything funny to say, because we just feel really moved, and really lucky.”
The untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story is slated for release on May 25, 2018. (source)
