Me Before You: Emilia Clarke, Jojo Moyes answer fan questions

10 fun insights from Clarke and author Jojo Moyes

Posted on

Emilia Clarke took to Twitter on Friday to answer questions about her upcoming romance Me Before You, which tells the love story of Louisa Clark (Clarke) and the recently paralyzed man she’s looking after, William Traynor (Sam Claflin). The film has the looks of a major tearjerker, but from what the Game of Thrones star had to say, err tweet, there was plenty of fun in the making, from her extreme excitement over being cast, to sending Charles Dance, who played ruthless patriarch Tywin Lannister on Thrones, into a laughing fit.

Friday’s conversation with fans followed another Q&A on Monday, in which Clarke tweeted alongside Jojo Moyes, who adapted her novel for the big screen. Below are some of Moyes’ standout responses, ranging from her intentionally aiming to break one Twitter user’s heart through her book to her strong preference for Will over Thrones hunk Jon Snow.
