We're not in Westeros anymore! Emilia Clarke has finally ditched her Daenerys Targaryen wig for good, and is now fully transforming into a romantic comedy star. Her upcoming role is quite a departure from the Seven Kingdoms, and we couldn't be more excited about it.
The 32-year-old actress will star along Henry Golding, Emma Thompson, and Michelle Yeoh for Paul Feige's upcoming film Last Christmas, which, you guessed it, takes place during the magical holiday season. The story will follow Clarke as her character tries to pick up the pieces after a near-fatal accident. She just needs the extra push to be happy again.
We can't be the only ones shipping Clarke and Golding in a totally fictional universe now...right?
This is hardly the Thrones alum's first rom-com. In 2016, Clarke took on the role of Lou in the tearjerker Me Before You, based on the fan-favorite novel of the same name by Jojo Moyes. We love to see the actress take on lighter roles after her nearly 10 years as the Mother of Dragons.
Last Christmas hits theaters Nov. 8, 2019.
