In Deauville, where she received the Nouvel Hollywood prize, the sunny Game of Thrones actress looks back on her cinematic crushes, her relationship with fashion, and her love for France.



Vogue France Emilia Clarke , the unforgettable Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO Game of Thrones phenomenon , was at the Deauville American Film Festival to receive the Nouvel Hollywood prize, which awards a star of American cinema. The same day, September 3, The Pod Generation premiered at the festival, a Sophie Barthes directed film, in which the actress stars, telling the story of a couple who call on artificial intelligence in the hopes of having a baby. It was the perfect occasion for the sunny actress, decked out in Chanel throughout the festival, to discuss this award, as well as look back on her love for French cinema and her vision of the New Hollywood.

A head-to-head in Deauville with Emilia Clarke:

You received the New Hollywood prize here in Deauville. What does this award mean to you? And for your career?
It means the world to me! It has long been my dream to be able to work alongside filmmakers that I admire and minds I want to learn from, so for such a prestigious festival as Deauville to recognize me for my work makes my imposter syndrome take a momentary back seat!

What is your personal vision of the New Hollywood? Of this new generation of actors and filmmakers?
My vision of the New Hollywood is one of action, change, representation, equality in both country and leadership roles and of true fierce unapologetic creativity. I want to be in lock step with my peers making work that challenges, and changes the status quo, that asks questions of our society and of the ways in which we can encourage people to see the humanity within us, and the environment around us as things of importance. The new generation of Hollywood continues to inspire and push me, both creatively and professionally, the future’s bright!

Of your generation, which actress do you admire?
Too many to count! But I currently have one helluva girl crush on Jessie Buckley . She portrays such a range of emotions with such a deft grace that makes her transform in a way that pushes me to want to be better myself!

Which young director would you like to work with?
Again, I could write a book here, but someone whose work I’m in awe of would be Charlotte Wells .

What differences do you see between American and European cinema?
I do see a difference, and I think that speaks to the fact that in European cinema there is more encouragement to take risks, and how it puts less onus on a financial reward and more on the creative act itself that is rooted in a freedom of expression. That kind of fluidity allows for films that don’t bow to a rule book and can result in pieces of work that show a real identity. All this being said, films need to make money for the industry to survive but I would love to work more within a European sphere to fully explore the breadth of my ability. I’ve spent a long time in the heat of the studio system in America and am ready to be on projects that are smaller and more intimate (not to say that I don’t still love being a superhero…)

Which French filmmakers do you admire?
I am blown away by Celine Sciamma . Portrait of a Lady on Fire ’s visuals have not left my imagination since I saw it. I’m also incredibly excited to see Bertrand Bonelli ‘s The Beast .

MSN Emilia Clarke put on a glamorous display at the 49th Deauville American Film Festival in France on Sunday.

The Emmy award nominee was snapped beaming from ear to ear as she received the prestigious Nouvel Hollywood award at the annual event.

The star, 36, posed proudly with the award ahead of the presentation of her latest movie.

Emilia was pictured receiving the award from the French director Alexandre Aja, member of the Jury of Revelations, ahead of the presentation of her movie.

Dazzling in a black sequined gown, the star showed off her slim physique in the dress which featured a plunging neckline.

The actress seemed to be in great spirits as she attended the film premiere for her latest project The Pod Generation.

Showing off her natural beauty, the star tucked her brunette locks behind her eyes and kept her makeup fairly natural aside from a bold red lip.

Accessorising the fit, she wore a pair of dangly pearl earrings and elevated her height with some simple black heels.

Emilia stars alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor in the science fiction romantic comedy film written and directed by Sophie Barthes.

Set in the not-so-distant future, the film follows Rachel (Emilia) and Alvy (Chiwetel) as tech giant Pegazus offers couples the opportunity to share their pregnancies via detachable artificial wombs or pods.

And so begins Rachel and Alvy’s wild ride to parenthood in this brave new world.

The 49th edition of the Deauville American Film Festival kicked off on Friday and will run until Sunday 10th September.

It is film festival season as the 80th Venice Film Festival also kicked off earlier this week and Toronto is gearing up.

Yet the hotly-anticipated events won’t be full of their usual Hollywood sparkle due to the writers’ and actors’ strike which has paralysed Hollywood for several weeks.

Venice has already felt the effects of the strike after the Day two of the festival proved to be a low-key event on Thursday as only a handful of stars turned out for the Ferrari premiere.

The festival marks the start of the awards season and regularly throws up big favourites for the Oscars. Eight of the past 11 Best Director awards at the Oscars went to films that debuted at Venice.

Yet while it usually attracts the biggest name in Hollywood, stars have been shunning the event this year because the SAG-AFTRA strikes has prevented them from promoting their work there.

The writers union, the WGA, went on strike on May 2, and were followed by SAG-AFTRA, the actors union, on July 14.

It seems Deauville will be similarly effected, as stars Natalie Portman, Jude Law, Peter Dinklage and Joseph Gordon-Levitt reportedly all cancelled their visit despite being billed to receive a Deauville Talent Award.

“I literally was like, this is my best day ever.”

Marvel In Episode 6 of Marvel Studios’ Secret Invasion, Gravik gets exactly what he wants — all the Super Hero power he could ever imagine, including Captain Marvel’s abilities via the Harvest. Unfortunately for Gravik, G’iah gets them, too.

Though the two started off as cautious Skrull allies at the beginning of the series, by the final episode G’iah has turned on Gravik after he killed both her father and mother, along with countless others opposing the Skrull’s fight (and even some Skrulls originally fighting alongside him). It ends with the two of them as so-called “Super-Skrulls” having absorbed multiple powers from a dozen Marvel heroes and flying and fighting through the air hoping to overpower the other. And though Emilia Clarke is no stranger to stunts, this was the most fun she’s ever had filming something.

In an interview conducted in June 2023, Clarke gushed over how she had “the most amount of fun” filming this final fight scene and all the stunt work that went with it.

“There was a part of this fight where I was on a [stunt] chariot. Then I was doing all the running, but I wasn’t actually running. I was on a chariot, which was being pulled by a car. And then my favorite bit is they put me on the wires!” she gushed to Marvel.com.

(It’s at this point that Ben Mendelsohn, who was also present for the interview, starts shouting “No way! No way!” because he was not on set while any of this was being filmed, and as a proud on-screen dad, he’s very excited about all of this.)

Much of the action in the final Gravik-G’iah fight scene required Clarke to be in the wires for moments of flying in the episode, and even after filming was done, the stunt team “couldn’t get [her] out of them.”

“I literally was like, this is my best day ever,” She excitedly continued. “I’m a theme park-riding kind of gal. Give me a trapeze. Give me a roller coaster. It felt exactly like that. I just kept giggling. I couldn’t stop giggling. It was genuinely the funnest day I’ve ever had on set — ever, ever, ever. if I could just live in wires, if I could be in wires now— Oh, it’s so good. After I wanted to tell everyone, I just came back, I’ve done something!”

Through all the wire stunts (and giggling), Clarke still had to nail the Super Hero action for the scene, including landing in a Super Hero “pose” following one hard punch to Gravik. Easier said than done for Clarke, who found this motion to be a little bit awkward, as it required her to simply jump in place to recreate the action of flying.

“You just stand there, and then you got to exit the screen,” She explained, miming the action. “You’re like, well, I actually can’t fly. And I’m not attached to the wires right now, so I’m just going to have to do the dumbest thing ever and just look really mean. And then jump. That’s exactly it. The biggest anticlimactic move. You’ve been building up. Been doing all the nasty talk. And then you just hop.”

But even the hopping can’t take away from Clarke once again declaring it “my best day.”

This interview was conducted during the Secret Invasion press junket in June 2023.

LA Times Emilia Clarke is no stranger to projects that attract passionate fans prone to fervent discussions of even the most minute details.

The actor’s portrayal of Daenerys Targaryen, the exiled princess turned fierce Mother of Dragons on HBO’s hit epic fantasy “Game of Thrones,” has been seared into our collective conscious. Over the course of its eight-season run, audiences dissected, debated and speculated about the Emmy Award-winning series’ storylines, characters, continuity, lighting, bloopers and more.

Her big-screen roles such as Qi’ra, Han’s enigmatic and deadly ex-friend in “Solo: A Star Wars Story” (2018), as well as an alternate timeline Sarah Connor in “Terminator Genisys” (2015) brought her into two of the most beloved franchises.

Now, as part of Marvel’s “Secret Invasion,” Clarke has joined one of the biggest cinematic universes, and it marks her first television role since wrapping production of “Game of Thrones” in 2018. Developed for television by Kyle Bradstreet, the extraterrestrial political spy thriller is currently in the midst of its six-episode run on Disney+.

Clarke is plenty animated while discussing the series late in the afternoon during a press day in June, but her exuberance as she details her love of theater and how it’s an actor’s medium is when she most resembles the Marvel die-hards explaining the supremacy of certain MCU installments and characters over others.

“Yeah I get nerdy excited about it,” says Clarke as she expounds on the magic that happens both on and behind the stage. “I’m a theater kid. I’m a theater nerd.” She describes it as her “happy place,” after having grown up around the stage. Her father, Peter Clarke, was a sound designer for theaters, and she traces her love of the magic of storytelling and acting all the way back to those childhood memories with him. In 2022, she made her West End debut in Jamie Lloyd’s production of Chekhov’s “The Seagull,” which was initially postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
