STYLE MAGAZINE – For 25 minutes, the actor best known as ethereal blonde Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s Game of Thrones has been chatting breezily over the phone from her hometown of London, but now she chooses her words carefully. Emilia Clarke pauses. “That’s a really hard question,” she says, gathering her thoughts.

The subject: what character she most identifies with from ‘90s sitcom Friends. “I love Rachel,” she says. “We all want to be Rachel. But there’s something about Monica that is so reassuringly neurotic.” The true identity of her Friends spirit animal has been a subject of much debate with her best friend, Lola Frears, the daughter of Florence Foster Jenkins’ director Stephen Frears. “I feel like we both want to be Rachel but are both a bit Monica,” Clarke admits.

As proudly educated as Clarke is in the preposterously detailed world of Westeros built by George R. R. Martin in his “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels and refined by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss on the HBO phenomenon, returning July 16, Clarke is at least as big of a television nerd for the millennial must-see TV staple Friends. She outed herself as a Friends superfan on Graham Norton’s U.K. talk show last year, where she appeared alongside Matt LeBlanc. “I have one slight request for you,” she said to him as the cameras rolled. “Would you be able to ask me how I’m doing?” As LeBlanc mouthed Joey Tribbiani’s signature “How you doin’?”, she broke into nervous giggles.

Yes, Clarke knows what it’s like to be that kind of a fan, which is probably a very good thing considering her filmography, which includes such obsessed-over roles as Sarah Connor in 2015’s Terminator Genisys, an as-yet-unnamed character in 2018’s Han Solo prequel, and, most famously, Khaleesi herself on Game of Thrones.

The 30-year-old grew up in Berkshire outside of London, her father a sound engineer for the theatre and her mother a vice-president of marketing. She won her role in Game of Thrones in 2010 after the pilot had already been shot with British actress Tamzin Merchant playing Daenerys. (In an inauspicious debut, the pilot episode would be 90% reshot). Her brief résumé at that point included a guest-role on British soap Doctors and the direct-to-DVD Jurassic Park rip-off Triassic Attack, which no one has seen, including, according to last report, Clarke herself.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLYSo Dany finally left Meereen!
Since marrying Khal Drogo, her one aim has been to get back to Westeros. But, oh bugger, I gotta learn how to rule. Oh god, we gotta get here first. Oh f—, I might as well rule this city. Ah, a revolt – bugger! Dammit, now I’ve got to go over there! No more slaves! Done! Brilliant! She’s got the dragons. She’s got the manpower. She’s got the ships thanks to the Iron Born. So there’s nothing else to do. She’s got to go now. Iron Throne!

And she’s got the confidence now too …
Exactly. She’s got the balls. And she also knows she’s got to go forward to help Meereen. She’s got to sit on the Iron Throne for the ripple effect. She knows she can do rule better than anybody else.

How does it feel to know Dany is finally going for it – unless there’s a storm at sea and all your ships sink.
Don’t even suggest that! You might give them ideas. I’m going to go back and see my mates, so Emilia feels really happy, I get to come home. It’s amazing. But the idea [Dany] might might not see [Jorah Mormont actor Iain Glen and Daario Naharis actor Michiel Huisman] again, that idea suddenly makes the show feel like it has a finite ending and that’s really sad. So there’s the excitement of getting there and being with everyone else and also being like, “Yo! Other queens! Bye!”

Speaking other queens, you have to think Cersei doesn’t stand a chance. You got dragons, the Unsullied and the Dothraki. She can barely control anybody around her aside from a gang of street kids.
I mean, yeah. That’s what I’m saying. If we talk about this: basically, I’ve got ships, I’ve got manpower, I’ve got dragons that breathe fire, and I apparently cannot be killed. I don’t even have an attractive man who wants to take his shirt off anywhere near me now, so there are no distractions. Though we have yet to see [Peter Dinklage] without his clothes on. The only thing missing is Jorah. He’s gotta come back. I said I can’t rule the Seven Kingdoms without him … But as with Game of Thrones, you know when your character is looking good, that’s when you know you’re not safe. Because [the writers are] all, “Oh, do you like her? We’ll kill her!”

Speaking of men taking off their tops, it seems pretty likely now that Dany will meet Jon Snow at some point, right? Fire and Ice?
Yup, but I just don’t know. Those rumors have never been substantiated within the Game of Thrones circle. It’s never been said. So I don’t know. I could kill him. He could kill me. He could be dead before we even meet. I could be dead before we even meet. Arya could kill us both! You never know! Anything’s possible. All I know is winter is coming … and I’m bringing the heat!

THE VIOLET FILES – Emilia Clarke has been crying. The 29-year-old actress just said goodbye to her best friend, who had been visiting for the past month. “There were tears,” she says. “Two crying girls.” Indeed, friends and family are everything to Clarke. While she’s known for enjoying the company of dragons in her icon-making role on HBO’s megahit Game of Thrones, in real life the people close to the actress are “what makes me feel powerful,” she asserts.

Clarke splits her time between Los Angeles (she has a house in Venice) and London, which she considers home. But “ninety percent of the time I live out of a suitcase,” she says. In the wake of the season-six Thrones premiere [when VIOLET GREY met the actress], the suitcase is coming out, as Clarke heads off to Washington, D.C., for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. She is then flying to Kentucky to start work on what she calls her most demanding role to date, in the film adaptation of Joe Sharkey’s true-crime book Above Suspicion. “It’s an amazing, dark, dark drama—Phillip Noyce is directing. I get to play a drug addict—it is really gritty and I cannot wait!” she says with great zest. “It’s so incredibly outside my experience, and takes on a real story,” she explains of the role’s challenges. “When you take a piece of material that is already loved out of people’s imaginations and put it on screen, you know you’re going to make some people happy and some people unhappy.”

In preparation, she’s taking a deep dive into all things Southern, studying reference materials like history books and the documentary The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia (“It gives you a real insight,” she enthuses). The already lively Clarke becomes even more animated when discussing her craft: “Everyone’s got a reason for being the way they are, making the choices they make,” she says of her technique. “And if you can tap into those reasons, you can give a fully realized performance that’s lived instead of just being a job.”

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.
