'Me Before You' actress Emilia Clarke thinks her co-star Sam Claflin is a "dreamboat"

Emilia Clarke thinks Sam Claflin is a "dreamboat".

The 29-year-old beauty appears alongside the handsome actor in the new romantic-drama movie 'Me Before You' and has admitted to being charmed by her co-star.

Asked what it was like working with Sam, she shared: "Just dreamboat. I feel like on movie sets, leads either hate each other or love each other - and happily we were in the 'love each other' category. He's a dude."

Emilia revealed she relished the experience of making the Thea Sharrock-directed movie, in which she plays a young and quirky character who moves from one job to the next.

She told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "It was so joyful and funny and I got to do all the things I always wanted to do. The director was like 'Do it! More! More!' I'm like, 'What? Yes! I get to really crack people up!' Everything I'm known for on-screen is so different from who I am but, with this, in between takes, I'd be no different."

The London-born actress said, too, that she enjoyed making the film in the UK, having spent so much time away from home in recent years.

She explained: "I got to sleep in my own bed! We filmed it in London - it was so dreamy. It's been getting really weird - people were like, 'I didn't realise you were British!' What?! So I'll be very happy when people realise I'm proper English."

This comes shortly after the 'Game of Thrones' actress claimed she largely goes unrecognised because she wears a wig on the popular HBO series.

Emilia said: "Because I wear the wig, I have a very normal life in terms of not getting recognised much.

"I'm incredibly fortunate in that regard because it allowed me to keep my feet on the ground and not fall into the pitfalls that a young actress could fall into."
