Henry Golding is warning fans that they're about to see a whole new Emilia Clarke. In their new movie, Last Christmas, the 33-year-old Emmy nominee plays a hot mess who falls in love with Golding's character, all to the tune of George Michael's songs. Sounds pretty adorable to me.
Clarke's role is a notable departure from the stoic, power-hungry Daenerys Targaryen of Game of Thrones, so much so that Golding felt compelled to tell fans that they would certainly see her in a new light after they watch the new film.
As reported by E! News, Golding stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and dished about Clarke, "She has one of the most fabulous singing voices. People who are Game of Thrones fans will never, ever look at Daenerys the same way, because she's so lovely in this."
The white-haired Mother of Dragons is swapping out her wigs and robes for an elf costume. Instead of the Iron Throne, Clarke's Last Christmas character works at a year-long Christmas shop and instead of some creepy aunt-nephew love relationship with Jon Snow, she seemingly falls for the smooth charm of Golding.
Last Christmas was directed by Paul Feig and stars, in addition to Golding and Clarke, Emma Thompson (who also co-wrote the film), and Michelle Yeoh. Catch it when it opens in theaters on Nov. 15.
