Emilia Clarke is swapping Slavers Bay for a spell in 1950s Italy.
The 27-year-old British-born Game of Thrones star is set to play the lead role in new psychological movie thriller Voice From the Stone.
Clarke will star as a nurse in the film, which is set in Tuscany. The story follows her character as she helps a troubled young boy whose mother has died suddenly, before she becomes trapped by a dark force inside the family’s castle.
Voice From the Stone is based on the Italian novel La Voce Della Pietra by Silvio Raffo. The novel will be adapted by Andrew Shaw and helmed by first-time director Eric D Howell.
Emilia Clarke has played Daenerys Targaryen in hit HBO fantasy drama Game of Thrones for the last four seasons. She’s also starred in Spike Island and Dom Hemingway – and is set to appear in the upcoming Terminator film.
Voice From the Stone will film in Italy from November.
