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.”

E!NEWS – Emilia Clarke’s wardrobe in Me Before You can be summed up in one word—quirky!

In the film, based on the bestselling novel of the same name, the Game of Thrones star plays Louisa “Lou” Clark, a small town English girl who goes to work as the caretaker of a wealthy man (Sam Claflin) who is left paralyzed after a horrific accident.

“It’s a very English look,” the movie’s costume designer Jill Taylor tells me. “What you see here is tame to what is on the streets of London.”

Most of Emilia’s wardrobe was found in vintage stores. “We basically trolled everywhere,” Taylor said. “We looked around everywhere.”

Not only did Taylor and her staff lend the movie some of their own items, Emilia’s mom provided the poodle broach her daughter wears on a yellow raincoat because “she thought it was very Lou,” Taylor said.

Emilia was a dream to work with. “She’s gorgeous and thank goodness she liked trying on clothes,” Taylor said. “We were constantly nagging to get her in for a fitting.”

And, she added, “Emilia has a gorgeous little figure. She’s not like a boy, she’s not a stick. She’s shapely. She’s got boobs and a waist and hips. She’s lovely and so pretty.”

We couldn’t agree more.

The film is in theaters today, June 3. (source)

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 — To fans of HBO’s Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke is Daenerys Targaryen, a shrewd, dragon-wielding conqueror and one of TV’s fiercest heroines.

So when Me Before You director Thea Sharrock suggested she play Louisa Clark — a spunky, idealistic young woman who takes a job caring for a wealthy, wheelchair-bound quadriplegic (Sam Claflin) — screenwriter Jojo Moyes was understandably puzzled.

“I couldn’t see it,” says Moyes, who adapted her 2012 romantic novel for the big screen (in theaters Friday). “She was, for me, irrevocably linked to long, blond hair and dragons and looking very stern. But the moment you actually see her without the (Thrones) wig, she’s so warm and bubbly, and actually has the physical look of Louisa. It really took no time at all.”

Playing someone who shares her optimistic outlook and humor was part of the appeal to Clarke, who calls Louisa (nicknamed “Lou”) a “more innocent version” of herself.

Reading the book for the first time, “I was in love by page 3,” says Clarke, 29, teasing and laughing with her Me Before You co-star throughout an arduous day of interviews. “Lou felt like such a perfect extension of me. I just understood her, and it was that understanding that brought my excitement.”

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:

HARPER’S BAZAAR UKGame of Thrones has made Emilia Clarke famous, yet thanks to the blonde wig she wears on the show, she’s preserved an ongoing level of anonymity. But roles as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s on Broadway, in the films Dom Hemingway with Jude Law and Terminator Genisys, and as the face of Dior’s Rose des Vents jewellery collection – in addition to growing tabloid interest – mean that privacy is disappearing fast. The trailer for Me Before You was released in February. Within two weeks, it had notched up over 60 million views. More than half the comments on her Instagram feed, she noted, were now about her as Louisa Clark [her character in Me Before You].

‘The joy of that wig is that I’ve had years to come to terms with where I’m at. It’s easier to handle because of it. You’re like, “OK, I feel comfortable, everyone’s nice. I’m not surrounded by paparazzi”,’ she says. (In fact, I register the exact moment the man at the counter realises who he’s been talking to. Five minutes after we sit down at our crate with our salads, a table is magically found.) Working on a film set can be notoriously tricky: everyone has stories of clashing egos, badly behaved stars (and, yes, writers). But even grizzled, veteran crew members observed what a happy production Me Before You was. Perhaps it was down to the director Thea Sharrock, who hails from theatre and is collaborative rather than dictatorial, but it was unquestionably helped by the fact that Clarke and Sam Claflin (Finnick from The Hunger Games; Alistair Ryle in The Riot Club), who plays the male lead Will Traynor, plainly loved working together. It was not unusual to see the two of them skidding around the set on Will’s electric wheelchair, or pranking each other in the trailers. For a weepie about a man who doesn’t want to live, there was an awful lot of laughter. 
’These movies happen once in a blue moon. Lou has this quote, “This has been the best six months of my entire life.” That was true for me,’ Emilia says. ‘Our crew had such a giggle. Everyone just got on. Thea is an absolute dreamboat. She’s an actor’s director and, let me tell you, they are few and far between.’
