Emilia Clarke wants to play a female James Bond, and we are so down with that
In case you haven’t noticed, Emilia Clarke is on fire right now. Both literally and figuratively.
In between being the Mother of Dragons Sunday nights on Game of Thrones, Clarke has been preparing to bring the feels in the upcoming big screen adaptation of Jojo Moyes’ bestselling novel Me Before You, which opens this Friday. (Seriously, prepare to cry ALL THE TEARS.) Emilia Clarke is taking over the big screen and our TV screens. And we are here for it.
So what’s next for Clarke? Well if she has her way, she’d like to take on one of the most iconic roles in cinematic history: James Bond. She recently told the Daily Star, “I have a lot of unrealised dreams. I would love to play Jane Bond.” She’s even already picked her first Bond boy. “My ultimate leading man would be Leonardo DiCaprio. No doubt about it.”
An unrealistic dream? We don’t think so. Clarke’s got everything it takes to pull off 007.
She’s can look completely gorgeous and dangerous at the same time.
She knows her way around a gun.
Her badassery is 100% undisputed.
I mean, you just know there’s poison or something in this lipstick:
Clarke…Emilia Clarke…as the first female James Bond?
ALL OF THE YES.
Make it happen, Hollywood.
