In the new romantic comedy Last Christmas Emilia Clarke plays Kate. She dresses like an elf, she works all year in a Christmas tree jewelry store and her life is a mess.

Enter Dashing Tom, played by Henry Golding ( Crazy Rich Asians ). He is handsome, nice and quirky – but of course something is difficult to grasp.

The film is about George Michael tunes and plays the lead role (and is co-written by Emma Thompson). It's set in a glittering, wintry London.

"We actually shot it last Christmas," says Clarke. "And we shot it in the middle of the night, mostly because on Regent Street, if you did it at another time, it would be rammed with tourists, and to do that, we had to use it." The available light The only light we could bring was soft light, and so we brought only an unsightly amount of fairy lights. The London you see in our movie is already beautiful – and then we made it 10 times more sparkling.

Clarke talked about her character Kate, sang in the movie and what comes after Game of Thrones ?

Highlights of the interview

About her role, Kate

No, she's not the mother of dragons, she has dragonmouth likes … yeah, so Kate – she's your anti-heroine, I think we're quite used to seeing in Rome-coms a perfect portrayal of a young lady – and that is not Kate, and it is in her mistakes where she becomes so assignable, so she struggles to unite, and she struggles to take care of herself, she struggles to take care of the people around her and does not take You can see that she is hiding from something and that she does not enjoy life when we meet her for the first time, but she tries.

Emma wrote this with her husband Greg Wise, and the character playing Emma is loosely based on Greg's mother. And she's really struggling to find peace in the UK she fled to because her memories of fleeing the former Yugoslavia and the war she fled from somehow haunt her every day and cause her to be a little more anxious and worried and vocal.

About Singing in the Movie

Oh, it was incredibly nerve wracking because I care so much about singing, and I am truly happiest with my singing. However, putting it in front of the camera in front of many people and doing it, you know, with Georges perfect song was – every time before I sing, I think I get tonsillitis or my throat closes or something. So it took a lot of courage, but I got there.

Regarding Kate's health issues and her relationship with her own, she recently revealed

I would not say it was the defining thing that brought me to [the movie]. Lady Emma Thompson was likely to. But it definitely allowed me to bring a fair amount of truth about Kate's struggles, because Kate had a health crisis in her early 20s, and by that time, mine was mine too. And this time for a young person is incredibly intimidating.

About the depictions of immigrants and Brexit in the film

Clarke: Well, we are showing a movie that is now, that is today. And I do not think Emma or Greg could have written anything about London today without mentioning it without having it. And they are both politically open and deeply interested in the refugee crisis and for Brexit, inclusivity and community and the multifaceted multicultural thing that is London.

Garcia-Navarro: Yes. How do you stand to Brexit?

Clarke: Oh god, it's heartbreaking. We have just heard that we will have an early choice, which I think is very good, because I think it will stop one point … maybe a comma after this very long, tedious situation that we have since 2016, really. But I mean, I'm pathologically hopeful as a human, and I'm pathologically hopeful that maybe we just recognize the mistake of our ways and stay and stay simple.

What roles does she seek? Game of Thrones

So I was lucky enough to be in this incredible show with this incredible character. And my goodness, if I became stereotyped as the mother of dragons, I could ask for worse. It is really wonderful.

But what's left to me – after 10 years of seeing and being part of it and shooting pretty big films in my breaks and all of these things – is a longing for something different, creative property. So I set up my production company about three years ago – very, very quietly because I did not want it to go awry and it's public knowledge – and now I have six or seven things on my plan that I write and produce. And because it's – I mean, you know, the landscape has changed for young actors and actresses for the kind of roles that exist. I struggle to find them, because the thing I learned on the show in 10 years is that the greatest luxury in life is time and space. So I wanted to take these two things, which luckily I could have now, and really consider what my next option is. Because I care what I do with my time.
