‘Game of Thrones’ Star Emilia Clarke Goes Undercover as Jon Snow in NYC
Even though Game of Thrones Star Emilia Clarke plays Daenerys Targaryen on the show, she decided to test her acting skills as a new character on YouTube.
Clarke took to downtown NYC dressed as Kit Harrington's character Jon Snow. The video is in support of Clarke's charity contest through Omaze where fans can donate to her charity of choice, SameYou.
SameYou is Clarke's charity she created which helps young adults who have suffered a stroke or brain injury. The funds specifically will help both recovery costs and fund a research program.
The cause is close to Clarke, who revealed in March that she suffered a brain aneurysm in 2011 when she was working out. She needed surgery from the aneurysm and had another scare years later. Aside from her charity, Clarke is also an ambassador for the Royal College of Nursing and an ambassador for Nursing Now.
There are only a few days left in the contest but fans can still donate between $10 and $5,000 with more chances to win the more you donate. The winner will be flown out to meet Clarke and watch the Game of Thrones season finale, ask her any questions about it, and a prop-filled photo shoot.
