CULTURED NERD – Sources close to TCN have confirmed that Emilia Clarke is the frontrunner for the role of Zatanna Zatara on HBO Max.

While the casting is not yet a done deal, Clarke is the main actress in talks for the role of the iconic DC magician. Our sources say talks are far along enough that concept art has already been worked on with Clarke as the character. This would make her the first name attached to Bad Robot‘s universe of Justice League Dark films and series coming to HBO Max in the near future.

Clarke has been a fan favorite for a DC role for quite some time, so it seemed inevitable that a DC property would eye her for a project. It is currently unknown if Zatanna will have her own solo standalone film or series on the streaming platform, though she would, of course, appear with a host of JLD characters, such as John Constantine, Deadman, and Etrigan the Demon.

Stay tuned to The Cultured Nerd for more on this news as it develops.

PEOPLE – The Game of Thrones star shows her gratitude to the health care workers who helped her recover from a brain aneurysm in 2011

Emilia Clarke has penned a heartfelt thank you letter to the hospital staff who saved her life, following her sudden collapse with a brain aneurysm in February 2011.

“The memories I will hold dearest … are ones that fill me with awe,” the Game of Thrones star writes in the new book Dear NHS: 100 Stories to Say Thank You, which is dedicated to the thousands of cooks, cleaners, porters and medical staff working to defeat the coronavirus pandemic in the UK’s National Health Service.

“In all those moments, over those three weeks, I was not, not ever, truly alone,” she writes.

Clarke first revealed that she underwent two life-saving brain surgeries in a March 2019 essay for The New Yorker, where she said she became “violently, voluminously ill” midway through a workout with her personal trainer in London.

A hospital MRI scan later diagnosed a life-threatening form of stroke known as a subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), caused by bleeding into the space surrounding the brain.

“If I was to live and avoid terrible deficits, I would have to have urgent surgery,” she told The New Yorker. “And, even then, there were no guarantees.”

The letter also pays tribute to the nurse who first suggested she have a brain scan following her admission to the emergency room.

“She saved my life,” says Clarke, before going on to thank “The surgeon whose skill, quick thinking and sheer determination” also prevented the worst, “while never letting on how close to death I had been.”

She also has special thanks for her anesthesiologist, who she says “miraculously” kept her entire family giggling as he talked Clarke through “the process of what was about to happen to my brain and then counted me down from 10.”

The actress underwent a three-hour surgery and spent four days in an ICU following her sudden collapse, which happened soon after wrapping filming on the first season of Game of Thrones.

The after-effects of the treatment were also devastating: As a result of her brain trauma, Clarke developed a condition called aphasia which caused her to forget her own name, pushing her into a deep depression that left her wanting “to pull the plug” on her life.

“I asked the medical staff to let me die,” she told The New Yorker.

Her letter to the NHS goes on to describe how the hospital staff pulled her through those dark days, including the children’s phlebotomist who was drafted in to take blood from her “tiny hidden veins,” to the cooks who made her “fish in white sauce with peas every day” because it was the only thing she could physically keep down.

Clarke also has a special message of gratitude to the hospital cleaners “who mopped the floor when my bedpan fell to the ground, shame and embarrassment filling the room along with disinfectant, and then a reassuring smile and a knowledge that they’d seen worse.”

Yet it is “the countless unthanked nurses” who receive most gratitude from Clarke, particularly those who put her in pajamas “with as much kindness as if I had been their own daughter,” she says.

INSIDER: “Game of Thrones” actress Emilia Clarke made a rare video appearance with her new puppy (a small Daschund named Ted) as part of ongoing efforts to raise charity funds during the coronavirus pandemic. Appearing on the “Save With Stories” Instagram page, the video shows Clarke reading a full children’s book called “Bear’s Loose Tooth.”

“Hi everybody, my name’s Emilia,” Clarke begins in the video. But she’s quickly overwhelmed with giggles as Ted licks her face. You can hear the person filming the video also gasping for breath between bursts of laughter.

“This is my Teddy,” Clarke says. “He is called Ted and he’s a little puppy. And we’d love to read you a story. So — are you sitting comfortably? Are you lying? Are you cuddled next to someone really big and squidgy or someone really little and furry, like this boy here?”

Clarke proceeds to turn to a nearby laptop, which is facing the camera and showing a PDF version of the Simon & Schuster children’s book “Bear’s Loose Tooth,” written by Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman.

The whole story takes just about four minutes to read, and then Clarke signs off.

“I hope you’re all doing very well,” Clarke says. “And I’m sending you lots and lots of love. Bye!”

The “Save With Stories” Instagram page currently has dozens of similar videos on its page. Stars including Chris Evans, Gabrielle Union, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Garner, and more have recorded themselves reading kids’ books out loud.

As the caption on Clarke’s video explains, “Save With Stories” is a new partnership from Save the Children and No Kid Hungry — organizations built to help children in need.

The new program is raising funds to “support food banks, and mobile meal trucks, and community feeding programs with funds to do what they do best — and also — with educational toys, books, and worksheets to make sure brains are full, as well as bellies.”

The coronavirus pandemic has led to the closure of schools across the US. This new program is designed to help keep kids now stuck at home entertained, and also raise funds at the same time. You can learn more about “Save With Stories” here.

 

Emilia Clarke interview: the Game of Thrones star on leaving Westeros behind to tackle the West End

Clarke, who now stars in Chekhov’s The Seagull, tells Louis Wise that the HBO fantasy series made her feel like a ‘small cog in a big machine’

The Times: Emilia Clarke says she views herself primarily as a stage actress, which is a little weird when you consider that she has only appeared in one play professionally before, and it was an absolute turkey. Or, as the 33-year-old star of Game of Thrones says, in her jolly British way, it was “terrible, awful, awful! Bad! That was a bad show!” The piece was Breakfast at Tiffany’s on Broadway in 2013, and it’s safe to say Clarke’s Holly Golightly did not enchant. “I’ll never forget, someone said to me after press night the only thing they liked was the cat.”

If Clarke relays this with surprising good humour, this is part temperament, part experience. For one thing, in person she is relentlessly chipper and pukka. Whereas on HBO’s mega-fantasy series Game of Thrones, she grew in stature as Daenerys Targaryen, a still, dignified stateswoman (until that end), in real life she is a goofy motormouth chatterbox, always eager to catch the joke at her expense. And she is no stranger to what we shall politely call “the mixed review”. She has known some drubbings, whether for that Broadway show, or films such as Last Christmas or Terminator Genisys, or indeed the final series of GoT, which — euphemism alert! — didn’t quite turn out the way everybody wanted.

Luckily she never reads reviews. “Because if it’s really, really good, someone will tell you. And if it’s really, really bad — some f***** will tell you.”

We are meeting today, though, at a rehearsal space in south London, because she is chucking herself back into the fray. For only her second stage appearance, Clarke is going straight into the West End, in Chekhov’s The Seagull, and taking on the prestigious role of Nina. If she is nervous, she’s handling it in the usual way, which is to say with huge blasts of good cheer.

Two clichés about meeting starsis that they are a) smaller than you thought, but b) their features are stronger than expected. Both are true of Clarke. She is tiny, proper Kylie-tiny, nicely decked out in a gauzy beige-cream knit, some fashionably frayed jeans and pointy, well-worn white cowboy boots. Yet her eyes and grin look extra big: if she stays still, she’s a dainty doll, but as soon as she moves it’s Looney Tunes. To be clear, she never stays still.

This energy feels helpful, as we have a lot to pack in. After all, Clarke’s past decade has been particularly wild. Not only did she rocket suddenly to fame in GoT (until then, her only screen credit was an episode of Doctors), she also lost her father to cancer in 2016 and, as she revealed in 2019, had suffered a sequence of brain haemorrhages in her early twenties, just as the madness of GoT was kicking off.

DIGITAL SPY – Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is back on screens in a creepy trailer for horror anthology Murder Manual.

The anthology, now available to watch on Amazon Prime, features a short film called Shackled – which Emilia starred in back in 2012.

Shackled follows the story of Malu (Clarke) who is released from her chains at a circus by her husband Jesse (Hadley Fraser) only to be haunted by a disturbing memory that she’d previously forgotten.

Seven other stories complete the anthology.

The Murder Manual trailer comes as Emilia’s West End play The Seagull had its scheduled run cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Additionally, it follows the actress recently admitted she felt “annoyed” about Jon Snow’s (Kit Harrington) ending in Game of Thrones, which saw Jon kill Daenerys (Clarke) and then escape beyond the wall after being sent to the Night’s Watch.

“Yeah, I felt for (Dany),” she told The Times. “I really felt for her.”

“And yeah, was I annoyed that Jon Snow didn’t have to deal with something? He got away with murder – literally.”

Emilia also recently revealed the gift her brother stole from the Game of Thrones set for her and said she was “in hell” speaking Dothraki in Dany’s big battle scene.

Totally pulled it off, though.

Murder Manuel is available on Amazon Prime now.

DAILY MAIL – Emilia Clarke discussed her torment over suffering from a second brain aneurysm in a new interview with Wonderland Magazine, on Friday.

The Game Of Thrones star, 33, revealed her fear that someone would recognise her while she was at her most vulnerable and fighting for her life.

Of being treated in hospital, she said: ‘[With] the second one, I lost a lot of hope; I lost a lot of optimism. That’s insane bad luck.

But there I was in a f***ing American hospital with drains coming out of my head, fully swollen, full of all the drugs they give you, and all I could think was, “please don’t recognise me, please don’t recognise me, please don’t recognise me.”‘

While she accepted that working on a show as popular as Game Of Thrones meant she ‘signed up for’ attention from fans wherever she goes, she explained some of the struggles she had while out during the tough period of her life.

‘This is where you very quickly sound like a complete f***king d**k because we signed up for this, we asked for this, it’s part of the job,’ she explained.

‘And then you’re in a shopping centre with your mum who is crying over your recently dead dad and someone comes up and asks you for a picture and you say no and they’re like, “I expected better from you, I thought more of you than that.”‘

Describing the incident as ‘scary as all hell,’ Emilia admitted the headache caused by the aneurysm ‘is the worst pain you can possibly imagine.’

‘As I was throwing up I knew I was being brain damaged, but I didn’t know how I knew. And I was like, no, f*** this, not today, it’s not happening.

‘I was wiggling fingers and toes, thinking of lines from the season, trying to do everything I could to keep myself conscious because I could feel myself slipping into a coma.’

Emilia went on to say: ‘I do feel like the brain haemorrhages are the literal, physical embodiment of what it is to be attacked on a social media, because I didn’t want to look anyone in the eye, and I didn’t want anyone to recognise me.

‘I wanted to disappear completely, to wipe myself off the face of the earth, because I couldn’t handle the level of interaction. Because I felt totally laid bare, totally vulnerable, totally in pain.’

She then admitted that playing Daenerys Targaryen in the hit fantasy series helped her through the ‘many waves of stuff to chew over – the fame, the brain haemorrhages, my dad dying.’

‘For me, the show became my escape from all of it. If I was changing, I wasn’t really aware of it. All the change was done for me,’ she said positively. ‘Because she did it. Daenerys Stormborn, Mother of Dragons. F***ing Game of F***ing Thrones.’

Emilia spoke candidly about her health scares in March earlier this year, when she revealed she underwent two life-saving surgeries in the course of eight years to correct two different aneurysm growths.

The film star also credited her mum for being the ‘greatest support’ as she tried to recover from the ordeal while battling with aphasia [loss of speech].

She said: ‘There was also my mum, when she went into mum superpower in the hospital: I had aphasia [loss of speech], and she looked at me and went, ‘Yeah, I know exactly what you mean.’

‘She made me believe she understood exactly what I was saying. It was genuinely her greatest moment.’

Following her health battle, Emilia launched the charity SameYou, which helps raise money for people recovering from brain injuries and strokes.

She also became an ambassador for the Royal College of Nursing in 2018, after being met with ‘kind’ nurses during her time in hospital.
