Emilia Clarke: 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' on Broadway!

Emilia Clarke is set to make her Broadway debut in the upcoming production of Breakfast at Tiffany’s!

The 25-year-old Game of Thrones actress will star as Holly Golightly in the world premiere of Richard Greenberg‘s new play based on the famous novella by Truman Capote, which the film was loosely based on.

“The goal of this version is to return to the original setting of the novella, which is the New York of the Second World War, as well as to resume its tone—still stylish and romantic, yes, but rougher—edged and more candid than people generally remember,” Richard Greenberg explained. “Capote was a great writer and a natural maker of plots and Breakfast at Tiffany’s has a drive that makes it very alluring to dramatize.”

Breakfast at Tiffany’s will open on Broadway in February 2013.

ARE YOU EXCITED to see Emilia Clarke play Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s?

    emilia would be great in this role

  • LooLoo

    Yes! So glad she’s getting more projects!

  • bahha black sheep

    she has beautiful tits

  • Creed

    I love Emilia but Holly Golightly is one of the most iconic roles of all time and I would think a bigger (and better) actress should be the first to perform her on broadway.
    But I wish her the best and hope for her success!

  • Real Life

    Stay in britain. America doesn’t want it.

  • Lottie

    The novella is so different to film, Anna Friel played the lead in London, but honestly, I think it needs someone younger and Emilia is ideal. She’s a rising star, and thankfully Broadway isnt quite as elitist as Hollywood.

    Capote would thank so much for the “loosely”.

  • Toni

    First of all….this girl can’t act. She has a lovely British accent, that is not acting people. Second….she’s British. Don’t we have American actresses who can play this role? Tired of the invasion of Foreign actors. I have to ask Actors Equity Union, why don’t you stop this crap from happening?
    Oh, and did I mention, this girl cannot act?

  • Ellen

    she is perfect for the role and actually she CAN act! wow, she has great projects and i wish her the best of luck! can’t wait to see it!

  • Marla

    Good for her, think she’s a great actress! Toni you sound like a bigot, so what if she’s british, she’s a delightful actress.
