'Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke hits New York's streets impersonating Jon Snow to promote finale season
Emilia Clarke is almost unrecognizable as Jon Snow as she asks some very uninterested pedestrians about the show which has reached its final season
HBO's 'Game of Thrones' has finally returned with Season 8 after much anticipation, and now the stars — who had sort of taken the vow of silence when it comes to giving out spoilers — are making every effort to make sure fans get the ending they deserve. Emilia Clarke recently took to the streets of New York, disguised as her on-screen nephew/lover, Jon Snow (Kit Harington), as she spoke to the people of New York about the show. Other than being an effort to get fans even more excited about the finale, Clarke is also utilizing the contest to raise money for her charity, SameYou.
In a viral post that Clarke posted on Instagram, we can see her dressed as Jon Snow speaking to seemingly uninterested New Yorkers, as one pedestrian actually tells her, "I'm a 'Walking Dead' fan." Clarke wrote on her Instagram post, "Oh yeah, I am kit Harington without the (any) abs. Maybe I’ll wear this outfit when I host your 'Game of Thrones' finale party! Maybe I’ll let you wear the beard!! That’s right—you and three friends could come hang with me in London, take lots of fun photos, ask me all your burning GoT questions (yes I kept the dragons, no Kit didn’t keep his hair) and enjoy a private screening of the final episode. Just don’t ask me who’ll win the Iron Throne… you’ll have to find that out for yourself. WHICH YOU WILL IN LONDON BABY!!! Support my new charity SameYou and ENTER to win through my bio link or at omaze.com/emilia#onlyatomaze#motherofdragonsfriendofomaze#awinnerhasnonameYET#winnerofadreamexperience#undercoverkhaleesi
#nowjonsnowknowssomething #🎉 #🔥."
The Mother of Dragons was trying to inform fans about a contest which will allow three winners to have the opportunity to accompany Clarke at the premiere of the finale episode of 'Game of Thrones' Season 8. Other than being put up in a four-star hotel, the winners will also get to ask questions to the actress about anything on the show — except of course, who sits on the Iron Throne. The contest will actually help Clarke raise funds for SameYou, a charity which "works to increase the provision of immediate rehabilitation for young adults after leaving hospital and to facilitate innovations in specialist nurse training, fund clinical research and develop evidence for policy change."
Hopefully, the Mother of Dragons will get what she wants because clearly no one — not even fellow impersonators — can recognize her in her attire as Jon Snow. 'Game of Thrones' Season 8 Episode 3 will return on April 28.
