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.
Below you can watch some interviews Emilia did during the red carpet for the Me Before You premiere in London, enjoy!
