Is Emilia Clarke Married?

Now that Emilia Clarke is no longer “married” to Game of Thrones, does that mean the Queen of Dragons is free in real life? Signs point to yes.

The British actress, 32, is not attached to anyone as far as we know. Clarke has never been married, so unless she’s keeping her love life on the down-low, which is very likely, that means she has no romantic attachments.

Clarke is attached in other ways, however. We’ll explain how she’s keeping busy post Game of Thrones.

Gossip outlets often assume that because actors are working together, that must mean they’re also sleeping together. However, Clarke has said she has never been attached to co-star and on-screen love interest Kit Harrington. There have been entire articles like this one debunking those reports.

Speculation that Clarke was dating Harrington ramped up around the time their characters started committing incest on Game of Thrones. However, Clarke was always insisted that her relationship with Harrington is more brotherly than anything else. Stories that they are romantically linked “literally makes me want to cry, it’s so far from the truth,” she told Elle.

Harrington went out of his way to make himself not attractive to Clarke. He would pretend to retch during their scenes, Variety reports, and Clarke would tell him, “Oh, my God, mate. You’re not making this any easier!” Harrington confirmed this, saying, “I like looking at her and going, ‘Oh God, I’m sorry,'” before making retching sounds to the camera.

Did Emilia Clarke date Jason Mamoa?

If Clarke were attached to Jason Momoa, that would be awkward considering he and his wife, actress Lisa Bonet, have been attached since 2005, long before Game of Thrones premiered. However, Momoa has actively supported his former co-star to the point of getting mad at Dany’s fate on Game of Thrones, just like many other viewers.

Who has Emilia Clarke dated?

Most recently, the rumor mill was abuzz that Clarke was dating Charlie McDowell, the son of actor Malcolm McDowell. The younger actor had previously dated Rooney Mara. However, McDowell unfollowed her on Instagram, for what it’s worth.

Besides Clarke has had much more pressing matters to worry about than dating. Earlier this year. Clarke told The New Yorker she struggled with life-threatening health issues, including not one but two aneurysms, in 2011 and 2013.  She said: “at certain points, I lost all hope … I felt like a shell of myself. So much so that I now have a hard time remembering those dark days in much detail. My mind has blocked them out. But I do remember being convinced that I wasn’t going to live.”

Fortunately, life-saving surgeries turned her fortunes around.

What is Emilia Clarke doing next?

Now that Game of Thrones is finally behind her, she has other projects to focus on.  When it comes to franchise movies Clarke has been snakebit. She played Sarah Connor in Terminator Genisys and Qi’ra in Solo, but both of those suffered mixed reviews and disappointing box office. However, an actress of Clarke’s skill will no doubt have better opportunities ahead.

According to IMDB, Clarke has two movies coming out this year. Last Christmas, directed by Paul Feig of Bridesmaids and Spy fame, also stars Emma Thompson and Michelle Yeoh. Clarke plays a woman who works as Santa’s elf in a department store. Paging Will Ferrell? No, but the movie is due out November 8.

Clarke has also filmed Above Suspicion with Thora Birch (American Beauty) and Jack Huston (American Hustle). It’s directed by Phillip Noyce, who made the Harrison Ford/Tom Clancy thrillers Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger.
