GAME GIRL EMILIA TO ‘MARRY’ FOXES GOAL HERO JAMIE!
scorcher Emilia Clarke is the front runner to play Leicester star Jamie Vardy’s fiancee in a new movie about the footy ace.
The 29-year-old actress is set to take the role Rebekah Nicholson in a new movie about the Foxes’ star’s incredible change in fortune.
Emilia, who was voted the Sexiest Woman Alive last year, is said to be the first choice of film executives to star as 33-year-old Becky.
Emilia shot to fame as the Mother of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen in the hugely popular HBO fantasy series.
And it seems the London-born actress’s talent has caught the eye of Hollywood bosses who are eager to tell the tale of underdogs Leicester City’s phenomenal rise to the top of the table. Hollywood bosses know they need to cast some big names to interest more than just a UK audience.
“And thanks to Game of Thrones, Emilia is a huge name in acting right now.”
The story of 29-yearold Vardy and his teammates has captured the nation as they fought back from near relegation last season, to battling for the premier league trophy this time around.
And Vardy’s personal rise – from earning £30 a week as an amateur player to playing for his country in just six years – could be the focus of the film.
Film executives are also said to be eyeing up Vinnie Jones for the role of former Foxes manager Nigel Pearson, while new Star Wars’ leading lady Daisy Ridley is also a contender for the role of Rebekah.
