Game of Thrones alum is set to hit the West End stage in Chekhov’s The Seagull
Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke Anton
Instead of driving dragons or setting entire cities on fire, Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is headed to the West End stage in Anton Chekhov’s play The Seagull. The show was postponed in 2020 due to COVID-19.
Broadway debut as elusive Holly Golai
It wouldn’t be the first time Clarke has turned from acting on screen to the stage—she made her Broadway debut in 2013 as the elusive Holly Goale in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The character was made famous by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 film.
The New York Times Holly of Clark
Unfortunately, his performance failed to capture the same adoration as Hepburn, with critics drawing Clark’s role widely. The New York Times described Clarke’s Holly as “an underage debut, trying too hard, too hard for a sophisticated adult,” while The Hollywood Reporter noted that Clarke had “neither the tenderness nor the softness. Nor was there delicacy in her grating Holi.
Broadway debut in a new interview
While that type of criticism tends to take even the best actors off the stage forever, Clarke opens up about her Broadway debut “a catastrophic failure” and returning to the West End in a new interview with the BBC. It just wasn’t ready,” admits Clark. “Was I ready? No, I was definitely not ready. In my childhood. I was too young and inexperienced.”
Clarke says after being absent from stage
After the four Russians live in an isolated country estate, Clarke will play Nina, a young woman hoping to become an actress, in The Seagull. After nearly a decade of absence from the stage, Clarke says that he is still concerned about people’s perception. “It’s 10 times more frightening because there will be people who want to go and say, ‘Well, she can only act on camera, she obviously can’t act on stage,’ which obviously isn’t enough,” Clarke says. The biggest fear of all.”
Clarke hopes fans of her past work on Game of Thrones will come to Russian drama
“Hopefully they’ll come and go, ‘We just came to see the Mother of Dragons, oh how disappointing, she’s not on a dragon, it’s not what I paid for,'” she says. Spoiler: I’m not on a dragon at any point during this playthrough. Unfortunately for dragon enthusiasts from Clark’s fanbase, his upcoming mystery role in Marvel’s series Secret Assault will only feature green-skilled Skrulls who transform into dragons. Can shape up. Who knows!
