Emilia Clarke, ‘Game of Thrones’ Star, To Play A Stripper In ‘Garden of Last Days’
Emilia Clarke, star of HBO’s medieval-fantasy series Game of Thrones, will play a stripper in Garden of Last Days, starring and directed by James Franco.
Adapted from the 2008 bestselling novel by Andre Dubus III of the same name, the film follows three characters whose lives intersect on a September night in a Florida strip club.

Clarke, 26, will play a mother who, unable to find a babysitter, brings her 3-year-old daughter to work with her. The novel is set around the time of 9/11, but Franco will set the film in present-day New York with a terrorist plot, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
This will be the first leading role in a film for the naturally brunette beauty, who split from boyfriend Seth MacFarlane back in late March.
