Actor Emilia Clarke may be best known for her serious role Daenerys Targaryan in the hit fantasy series Game of Thrones, but if you’ve seen any interview with her ever, it’s clear that her real personality couldn’t be farther from that role. Rarely does she have a scowl on her face, and oftentimes, her enthusiasm on any particular subject is brimming. As such, she seemed like someone well-suited for comedy.

And yet she hasn’t really had much of a chance to flex that comedic muscle. Well, in the latest Paul Feig film, it looks like she’ll be getting that very chance. Directed from the script by Emma Thompson, here comes a rom-com that looks to turn a cynical woman into someone just a little more romantic.

Below is the official synopsis for Last Christmas:

“Emilia Clarke (HBO’s Game of Thrones), Henry Golding (A Simple Favor, Crazy Rich Asians), Michelle Yeoh and Emma Thompson star for director Paul Feig (A Simple Favor, Spy, Bridesmaids) in the romantic comedy Last Christmas, with a screenplay by Academy Award® winner Thompson (Sense and Sensibility, Bridget Jones’s Baby) and playwright Bryony Kimmings.”

What do you think of the new trailer? If nothing else, this has reminded me how much I actually enjoy rom-coms, and that it’s been a while since we saw a good one (apart from Crazy Rich Asians).
