She’s no longer the mother of dragons, but Emilia Clarke is still acting and you can see her make her debut on London’s West End in “The Seagull.” The play is a retelling of Anton Chekhov’s tale centered around love and loneliness. Several characters are isolated in a home where raw emotions are exposed and high drama unfolds. “The Seagull” was filmed live in London and stars Tom Rhys Harries, Daniel Monks, Sophie Wo and Clarke’s fellow “Game of Thrones” alum Indira Varma.
