Emilia Clarke

The fourth season of "Game of Thrones" just concluded this past Sunday on HBO, so there's no better time to reveal a new project for series regular Emilia Clarke. The actress is currently busy playing Sarah Connor in Terminator: Genesis, but she's just locked down the lead role in Voice from the Stone, a psychological thriller set in the 1950s. The film will see Clarke playing a nurse who helps a boy through the traumatic sudden death of his mother only to become ensnared by a malevolent force inside the family’s castle. Sounds like a traditional horror thriller, but this is based on the Italian novel La Voce Della Pietra.

Silvio Raffo wrote the book which Deadline reports has been adapted by newcomer Andrew Shaw, and will mark the feature directorial debut of Eric D. Howell. Production will begin in November, and it's not clear if it will happen before or after Clarke shoots the next season of HBO's hit fantasy series. The actress has garnered quite a following from her role as dragon queen Daenerys Targaryen, and it's likely that her casting in this film will get some new eyes on a film that otherwise might not have gotten their attention. But it remains to be seen if Clarke has the goods to make a name for herself outside of "Game of Thrones."

    It'll be so weird to see her in everyday street clothes.

      I think it's already strange enough seeing her without the the blonde hair.

        i found it strange she suddenly had dark eyebrows. I swear they dyed them for the first season.

      yea - I know it'll sound odd, but in "game of thrones" (for me) she's a real hottie....but in regular life she's just "meh"......hard to figure.
    I still not convinced of her acting ability. Her role in GAME OF THRONES is so specialized, you can't really know how good of an actress she is. Most of her lines are just self-righteous babbling.

      Which is why she'll probably out live em all. All the juiciest parts are all dead or doomed. After all... One does not simply... win in the Game of Thrones.
