Emilia Clarke is riding the crest of a wave of success in Game of Thrones, and now she is also set to shine in a film adaptation of the British bestseller Me Before You. Here, she talks to the novel’s author Jojo Moyes about fame, feminism, wigs and wonderment…

Game of Thrones has made Emilia Clarke famous, yet thanks to the blonde wig she wears on the show, she’s preserved an ongoing level of anonymity. But roles as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s on Broadway, in the films Dom Hemingway with Jude Law and Terminator Genisys, and as the face of Dior’s Rose des Vents jewellery collection – in addition to growing tabloid interest – mean that privacy is disappearing fast. The trailer for Me Before You was released in February. Within two weeks, it had notched up over 60 million views. More than half the comments on her Instagram feed, she noted, were now about her as Louisa Clark [her character in Me Before You].

‘The joy of that wig is that I’ve had years to come to terms with where I’m at. It’s easier to handle because of it. You’re like, “OK, I feel comfortable, everyone’s nice. I’m not surrounded by paparazzi”,’ she says. (In fact, I register the exact moment the man at the counter realises who he’s been talking to. Five minutes after we sit down at our crate with our salads, a table is magically found.) Working on a film set can be notoriously tricky: everyone has stories of clashing egos, badly behaved stars (and, yes, writers). But even grizzled, veteran crew members observed what a happy production Me Before Youwas. Perhaps it was down to the director Thea Sharrock, who hails from theatre and is collaborative rather than dictatorial, but it was unquestionably helped by the fact that Clarke and Sam Claflin (Finnick from The Hunger Games; Alistair Ryle in The Riot Club), who plays the male lead Will Traynor, plainly loved working together. It was not unusual to see the two of them skidding around the set on Will’s electric wheelchair, or pranking each other in the trailers. For a weepie about a man who doesn’t want to live, there was an awful lot of laughter. 
’These movies happen once in a blue moon. Lou has this quote, “This has been the best six months of my entire life.” That was true for me,’ Emilia says. ‘Our crew had such a giggle. Everyone just got on. Thea is an absolute dreamboat. She’s an actor’s director and, let me tell you, they are few and far between.’

‘She brought a level of professionalism and total dedication to work every day, but never at the expense of fun,’ Sharrock says of Emilia. ‘She was never afraid of hard work, always wanted to be pushed further than she thought she could go. She gave herself entirely to the part of Lou, so much so it was hard sometimes to distinguish Clark from Clarke.’

Me Before You is a female-led film; unusually for a Hollywood-backed production, it has a female director, female writer and three female producers. After the testosterone-fuelled sets of Terminator Genisys and Game of Thrones (which has been repeatedly criticised for scenes of sexual violence against women), this was a new experience for the actress.

‘I’m normally surrounded by dudes. Doing Me Before You meant I didn’t have to be continually proving myself in a man’s world, having to try and force people to listen to me. I’ve got a really strong mum. I was brought up thinking that men and women are equal. It’s only as I’ve got older that I’ve been like: “Mum! What the f…? Why are they treating me differently because I’ve got a pair of tits?”‘

I am reminded of a time on set when I happened to tell her my daughter was having to deal with sexist behaviour for the first time. A few days later, I was handed a bag containing a designer dress and a leather bag that Emilia had brought in for her. ‘This sounds awfully Oprah Winfrey, but I can’t be having a good time unless I feel other people are having a good time,’ she says. ‘A life lived in isolation is not a life lived.’

Glamour US has unveiled its May cover, which Emilia covers gracefully. I’ve just added high-quality digital scans of the issue to our gallery, as well as outtakes taken from the photoshoot, photographed by Steven Pan. Read the whole interview here.

I was the drama kid. I wanted to be in the popular crowd, desperately, and I never was. I was hanging on to their coattails like, “Be my friend!”
