Emilia Clarke: I'm petrified of Sam Claflin's dimples

Emilia Clarke is petrified of Sam Claflin's dimples.

The 29-year-old actress appears alongside the British hunk in the new romantic-drama movie 'Me Before You' and Emilia has confessed to being slightly intimidated by her handsome co-star.

She shared: "Look at him. Look at dimple one and dimple two. We got on really well so there was stuff early on where we've got to be not liking each other and for me to be afraid of him.

"I mean, his dimples are absolutely petrifying! But we were having such a good time together so it was difficult to get fully into that."

Meanwhile, the London-born actress - who also stars as Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO series 'Game of Thrones' - claimed her working life inhibits her hopes of finding love.

She told the Sun on Sunday newspaper: "I kept thinking that for clarity of mind, I had to be in one place. Then I realised that's not how this life is going to work. It makes romance absolutely impossible.

"I'm soppy and I do like to believe that when the right person comes along, it will work, because you want to make it work. Everyone else seems to manage it."

The brunette beauty also revealed there is a marked distinction between the innocence of her on-screen character in 'Me Before You' and her real-life self.

She explained: "My character has an innocence that I don't have. I guess I have too much of a knowing glint in my eye. That was in a director's note to me, 'Remember the innocence! Remember the innocence!' 'When the right person comes along, it will work'.

"And if I ever drifted, as soon as I remembered the innocence, then I got back into her."
