USA TODAY – Call her the Mother of Dragons, Breaker of Chains, and undisputed Queen of Pranks.

Yes, Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke is a notoriously crafty prankster, according to her Me Before You co-star Sam Claflin. Filming the tearful romance last year, her most memorable hijinks included a remote-controlled fart machine, which she would casually unleash on unsuspecting cast and crew. She also framed Claflin for “stealing” her Daenerys doll, by planting it in his bag and plastering the U.K. set with mock-up “wanted” posters.

But as a self-described clean freak, the British actor says the worst prank may have been when Clarke put fish in his socks. Claflin tells USA TODAY:

“They were brand new socks. I had worn them for only three minutes in the morning — like, literally to get from my house to work. I took them off to get into my costume and they stayed in my trailer until the very end of the day. … I don’t really like fish. It’s not my favorite smell or anybody’s. I just remember as I picked up my socks, I was like, ‘That feels odd.’ So I pulled them apart and went to put one (foot) in, and I fully gagged. I was like, ‘What?’ “

Afterward, “he made me feel so bad, oh, my God,” Clarke says. “But then I bought him three pairs of really nice socks.”

But she didn’t get off that easy: Claflin also had his share of fun at Clarke’s expense.

“I stole all her furniture, which was pretty epic,” Claflin remembers. “I stuck it all in my room, but then my room was way too overcrowded. I couldn’t move!”

It’s safe to say, these two must have April Fool’s Day on lock. (source)

USA TODAY – NEW YORK — Me Before You has something most weepy romances don’t: laughs.

Writing the film version of her 2012 novel, “it was important to keep the humor going as much as the sadder elements,” author Jojo Moyes says. The fun continued after the cameras stopped rolling, say stars Sam Claflin and Emilia Clarke, who play a paralyzed man and his affable caretaker in the drama (in theaters Friday). Some of the charismatic duo’s funniest (and most painful) on-set stories:

MIRROR.CO.UK – Emilia Clarke is about to hit the big screen in tearjerking rom-com Me Before You.

We’re used to seeing the British actress controlling dragons, as heroine Daenerys Targaryen, so we’re delighted to see her in a different light.

She plays Lou Clarke, a girl who goes to work as a carer for Will Traynor, a paralysed rich boy, played by Sam Claflin, him off The Hunger Games.

Emilia, 29, tells us more about her character and how this film made an entire rugby team cry…

What made you want to be in this film?
It was so joyful and funny and I got to do all the things I always wanted to do. The director was like “Do it! More! More!” I’m like, “What? Yes! I get to really crack people up!” Everything I’m known for on-screen is so different from who I am but, with this, in between takes, I’d be no different.

Must have been tough working with the incredibly hot Sam Claflin…
Just dreamboat. I feel like on movie sets, leads either hate each other or love each other – and happily we were in the ‘love each other’ category. He’s a dude.

You’re all Hollywood these days. How was it filming in Blighty?
I got to sleep in my own bed! We filmed it in London – it was so dreamy. It’s been getting really weird – people were like, “I didn’t realise you were British!” What?! So I’ll be very happy when people realise I’m proper English.

Favourite rom-com?
When Harry Met Sally is the ultimate for me – I know it all off by heart. Anything with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks in it: Sleepless In Seattle, You’ve Got Mail. Then Four Weddings And A Funeral. Notting Hill. They’re all shameless – proper stay at home on a Sunday with a box of Kleenex stuff.

And Me Before You is going to be up there…
I brought my best friend to see it, and she turned round, sobbing, and said, “You told me it was a rom-com!” Matt Lewis [who plays Patrick, Lou’s boyfriend] brought all of his rugby team with him, and he said, “Mate, you made 12 grown men cry!”

Are you romantic?
Er… yeah. I watched Cinderella the other day, because my Thrones mate Richard Madden is in it. And it’s really good, Disney movies are folk stories. We’re all just trying to find magic to elevate the mundane day-to-day life. Rom-coms make you feel like there’s hope.

ENQUIRER – In person, Emilia Clarke is radically different from her ruthless platinum blonde Daenerys in “Game of Thrones.” Sporting her natural shoulder-length brunette hair, Emilia is sweet, vivacious and laughs heartily. She often flashes her winning smile.

The London native conceded that Louisa “Lou” Clark, her caregiver character in the film adaptation of Jojo Moyes’ acclaimed novel, “Me Before You,” is the most similar to her of all the roles she has played so far.
“I do more acting on ‘Game of Thrones’ than I did on this one,” she admitted, breaking into her boisterous laugh, which was like a ray of sunshine in this windowless basement meeting room of the Ritz Carlton Central Park Hotel.

Her thick eyebrows are as animated as they are in “Me Before You.” Those eyebrows have a life of their own and deserve billing credit, especially when they are used by Emilia to beseech Sam Claflin’s William “Will” Traynor, a paraplegic under the care of Lou.

In this love story, a romance blooms between Lou and Will. But he has decided to end his life by assisted suicide in six months; she tries her best to make him change his mind.

There’s one thing Emilia doesn’t have in common with Lou, who has a quirky fashion sense and loves bumblebee tights. “There’s a difference, but I love clothes as much as Lou does, that’s for sure,” said Emilia, who was fetching in a blue lace strap dress.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLYNotice: This post contains a spoiler from Sunday’s Game of Thrones, “Book of the Stranger”

Daenerys Targaryen added another spectacular feat to her legendary history on Sunday night’s Game of Thrones. She not only escaped her Dothraki captors, but also brought the house down — literally — with an epic fire-goddess scene that reminded everyone the Mother of Dragons is not to be trifled with.

While fans have assumed Dany would somehow eventually escape her confinement at Vaes Dothrak, the most common prediction was that Ser Jorah and Daario Naharis would simply smuggle her out, or that Drogon would swoop down to torch her enemies like at the end of season 5. But showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss concocted a far more clever, shocking, and character-driven twist.

As Clarke excitedly describes the scene to EW: “It’s so exciting, very tingly-making. Every season I get at least one spine-chilling moment. I just stand up and I go, ‘I’m hearing what you’re all saying, but funny thing, I’m going to kill you all. I forgot that I have an ace in my back pocket and now I win.’”

It’s long been assumed Dany is fireproof through some magical Targaryen bond with her dragons. We saw in the pilot that she walks into a scalding bath; later, she declares, “He was no dragon; fire cannot kill a dragon,” after her brother perishes; and eventually, she emerges Unburnt from her dragons’ birth. (In George R.R. Martin’s novels, however, Dany’s fire-immunity was apparently a one-time thing, the author has suggested.) In a way, being fireproof has been Dany’s covert superpower since the show launched.

VARIETY – The last time we saw Daenerys Targaryen at the end of Season 5 of “Game of Thrones,” things didn’t look good for the Queen of Meereen: she was being overtaken by a horde of Dothraki. Now, on the cusp of the April 24 premiere of the HBO masterpiece’s sixth season, Emilia Clarke offers a few cryptic hints about what’s in store.

What’s in store for Daenerys this season?
Oh, a lot’s happened this next season! Every season’s really difficult as to the anticipation of what’s going to come out. I say this every season, but I mean it more than ever this time, this is the biggest thing. I’m going to be surprised if people’s televisions don’t explode, like actually explode or computers have to be pushed aside. It’s huge, it’s ridiculously huge. I remember reading the scripts and being like, “So, everything we’ve ever managed to do in one entire season, we’re like doubling and putting into Season 6?” It’s astonishing. It’s really, truly astonishing how much work has been done out of one season. It’s the biggest, baddest season so far, for sure.

How did it feel going into this season where there are no more books to follow? Did it feel different for you as an actor?
I think everyone was like, “What’s going to happen?” We’ve all known and now we don’t know what’s going to go on. From day one [showrunners Dan Weiss and David Benioff] make everyone feel confident. They keep things from us in a good way. I can be like, “Guys, let’s go for a drink.” Three drinks in, I’ll be like, “So, does Daenerys die or does she win?” They don’t want to tell me. They’ll joke about it but they won’t ever tell you. There’s a beautiful thing about them really kind of making sure that the actor’s getting what they need and not knowing too much.

Coming into this season, there was even more of that. It’s kind of exciting. The whole cast gets sent the scripts ahead of filming, so let’s say we start filming in June. At the end of May, we’ll all get the script. We’re all texting each other saying, “Oh my God.” There’s a big moment when you get your script. This season was epic with that one. Everyone was much more like, “What is going to happen?” It just means that there’s even more fairy dust in the air.

I think they’ve done pretty well so far with the books, so I’m confident that the people, the fans aren’t going to be disappointed, that much is certain.

What’s your relationship with them on set?
They are one of the few continuous presences on set. They are literally there every day. Every day that they can be there, they are there for someone, for one character or another. They are on set making sure that you’re okay, making sure that everything is cool, cracking jokes, keeping the environment relaxed and fun… because they keep killing everyone. In the current script you’re reading, you make friends and they die. Then you make friends, and they die.

Dan and Dave are my closest mates on set. I totally consider them my friends. They are always trying to set me up with someone. It’s the funniest thing. I’m always like, “Can we talk about the characters?” And they’re like, “We’ve got this new guy for you. We think he’d be really good for you.” It’s just magic, working with them. They’re so full of life and funny. You see it in the writing. You have to be incredibly intelligent to be that funny.

I think there’s just that secret rule at “Game of Thrones” that’s the No Asshole Rule. I don’t know how they’ve done it, but there aren’t any assholes who work on our show. There just aren’t any in any department, in any cast. You have to be this nice, cool, funny, intelligent person to work on the show. I think they set the precedent because it happens from the top down. They set the tone for everyone, even if you wanted to be an asshole. You just couldn’t. It wouldn’t be allowed.
