Childhood: Emilia Clarke was born in London to a businesswoman and a theatre sound engineer.

Cersei Lannister Brings A Brutal End To 'Game Of Thrones' Season 6 (Spoilers)


Game Of Thrones Lena Headey Maisie Williams Emilia Clarke

'Game Of Thrones' season 6 has been quite the rollercoaster, leaving fans a little disturbed, frequently relieved and, finally, purely stunned. In fact, finale episode 'The Winds of Winter', which aired on Sunday (June 26th 2016), has already been lauded as one of the greatest television episodes of all time and for a very good reason.

Throughout the ten episodes we've seen Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) free herself from the clutches of the Dothraki and return home on Drogon, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) resurrected and executing his killers before raising an army with Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) to defeat the Boltons, Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) killing the Waif and finally becomes the badass she was always going to be, and Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey)... well, she exacts some pretty brutal revenge. Be warned: spoilers ahead.

Me Before You Review

OK

With a story that links together every cliche from the weepy chick-flick library, this movie uses its doomed romance premise to reduce every woman in the audience into floods of tears. Adapted by author Jojo Moyes from her bestselling novel, the movie will work its trickery on its target audience, and it will just about keep others interested, thanks to engaging central performances by Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin.

It's set in a picture-perfect British village located next to the ruins of a picturesque castle, where the quirky Louisa (Clarke) has just lost her job as a waitress in a tearoom. But her parents (Brendan Coyle and Samantha Spiro) need her income to make ends meet, so she takes a job with the village's most prominent couple (Janet McTeer and Charles Dance), caring for their son Will (Claflin), who was a high-flying banker until he was hit by a motorbike and paralysed. Working alongside Will's nurse Nathan (Stephen Peacocke), Louisa struggles to connect with the relentlessly surly Will, who believes that there's no point with going on with his life. But Louisa is determined to help him find some hope.

Everything that happens on the way to the unnerving conclusion is deeply predictable, because we've seen it all in movies from Bridget Jones to The Fault in Our Stars. Even the gently wacky romance feels oddly by-the-book, shifting from interested sideways glances to another smiley montage sequence to contrived comedy and gloomy drama. Thankfully, Clarke and Claflin breathe life into these characters, adding personality details and a spark of chemistry that helps the audience feel the connection developing between Louisa and Will. Of the supporting cast, only Peacocke manages to give his character a sense that he has a life off the screen. And it's nice to see Downton Abbey's Coyle against type.

Emilia Clarke Explains #FreeTheP Campaign For Equality Of Nudity


Emilia Clarke James Corden HBO

‘Game of Thrones’ star Emilia Clarke has recently been making her views about on-screen nudity very clear indeed – she wants to see more balance between the sexes and the amount of time they have to spend nude in the front of the camera.

The 29 year old British star, who is set to reprise her role as Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO fantasy series when the sixth season returns later this month, appeared on ‘The Late Late Show’ and explained her point of view to host James Corden in a campaign becoming known as #FreeTheP.

A New Trailer Brings More Clues For 'Game Of Thrones' Season 6


Game Of Thrones Kit Harington Emilia Clarke Peter Dinklage

Waiting for 'Game Of Thrones' season 6 to arrive is emotional turmoil for fans. First they had to go through the grief of Jon Snow's death, then speculation that he's actually still alive (or, at least, coming back to life), then Kit Harington and his co-stars' insistences that he's very much dead, and now this; a string of mysterious moments in a new trailer that could spell that it isn't the end for Snow after all.

What new clues have added to the possibility that Jon Snow (Kit Harington) will be returning to life? First off, we see Davos (Liam Cunningham) wielding Snow's sword as he prepares to defend his corpse alongside the Night's Watch against Alliser Thorne (Owen Teale), whose cronies are battering down the door. It's possible that Davos and co. are trying to stop Thorne and his men burning Snow's body (which they might do to ensure he doesn't become a White Walker), but why would they need to do that if he was really dead? Of course, it could be a dignity thing.

Kit Harington Missing Among 'Game Of Thrones' Season 6 Premiere Arrivals


Game Of Thrones Emilia Clarke Kit Harington Lena Headey

The 'Game Of Thrones' season 6 premiere took place at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood last night (April 10th 2016) and, as expected, arrivals were bombarded with questions about whether or not Jon Snow was really dead. Kit Harington wasn't there to reitereate his own denial of Snow's continued existence, but he would have been proud of everyone for their insistence.

Emilia ClarkeEmilia Clarke plays Daenerys Targaryen 

The cast of probably the most eagerly anticipated season premiere of this Golden Globe-winning fantasy series yet took to the grey carpet to ring in the arrival of the new episodes, the first of which will air on HBO in two weeks. Emilia Clarke who plays Daenerys Targaryen was among them, as fans continue to fret over what's become of her character. From what we've seen in pictures and trailers so far, Daenerys is stranded after pet dragon Drogon refused to take her back home and has now run into a Dothraki horde. Some snippets have shown her as being held hostage, while in others she appears to be free.

Emilia Clarke Wants To See More Penises On 'Game Of Thrones'


Emilia Clarke

Emilia Clarke opens up about the need for male nudity on 'Game Of Thrones', and confesses that she got to see a lot more of Khal Drogo than the viewers. She just isn't shy about anything, which is just as well for a actress whose character was famously and controversially raped onscreen.

Emilia ClarkeEmilia Clarke gets candid in 'Game Of Thrones' interview

Despite her baby-faced innocence and her role as the frequently victimised but often fierce Daenerys Targaryen (aka Khaleesi of the Dothraki) in 'Game Of Thrones', Emilia Clarke has a hilarious smutty side. Naturally animated and entertaining, she was interviewed by Glamour Magazine and opened up about her feelings on 'GofT' nudity.
