“Me Before You” stars Emilia Clarke. The actress is well known to fans of the television series “Game of Thrones”. She is Daenerys, Princess of House Targaryen. However, who between the two roles does Clarke identify with the most?
Clarke shared how close she felt to the role of Louisa with Britain’s OK! magazine. TV3 cited excerpts from her interview.
“I was a shy and awkward as a teenager but I always had an inner sense of determination,” Clarke revealed. Hence, she aspired for roles that portray strong women on screen the website noted.
In her role as the all-powerful Daenerys on “Game of Thrones”, Clarke has her eyes set on the goal without the need for a man by her side.
She also noted a quirky similarity of Louisa to her real life persona.
“I’m playing a goofy, awkward woman. My character (Louisa) is kind of clumsy and insecure at times, more like the person my friends and family see in real life,” Clarke added.
The actress also offered insight into the current state of her love life. According to Clarke, it is “absolutely impossible” to manage dating and her career at the same time. She attributes this to her “gruelling schedule”. Nevertheless, Emilia Clarke is certain that Mr Right will come at the right time.
“I’m soppy and I do like to believe that when the right person comes along, it will work, because you want to make it work. Everyone else seems to manage it!” Clarke shared.
WDW.com listed the celebrities she’s dated or rumoured to have dated. It includes actors Jai Courtney, Cory Michael Smith, James Franco, Seth MacFarlane, Richard Madden, and Kit Harrington.
“Me Before You” premieres on June 3, 2016.
