‘GOT’ Star Emilia Clarke Would Cast Leonardo DiCaprio In ‘James Bond’…But Not As 007

Gillian Anderson and Priyanka Chopra officially have some stiff competition! Last week, both ladies made headlines when they expressed interest in taking up the coveted role of James Bond, but it turns out, they’re not the only actresses with 007 on the mind.

In a new interview with UK publication the Daily Star, Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke revealed that she’d love to bring a female 007 to life on the big screen.

In the interview, the actress explained that one of her “unrealized dreams” is to play James Bond— or should we say, Jane Bond? And if you’re wondering who Clarke’s ideal leading man would be, don’t worry— the actress has an answer for that, too.

“My ultimate leading man would be Leonardo DiCaprio. No doubt about it,” said Clarke.

A Bond film with Emilia Clarke and Leonardo DiCaprio? Now, that’s definitely an idea we could get behind! Clarke has already proven herself as a force to be reckoned with as the strong-willed Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones, so we can only imagine what she would bring to the table if she were cast as a female version of the iconic secret agent with a license to kill!

For now, fans of Emilia Clarke will have to settle for catching the Brit in this summer’s highly anticipated Me Before You, which hits theaters on June 3.
