“I want to do as many things as possible and I just think why sit around and wait for someone else to make the opportunity for you? Why don’t I just write? And it’s so liberating. It’s wonderful. And obviously there’s a lot of other work going on, but it’s just kind of nice to know you’re plugging away doing your own thing, creating your own path as well.” - Emilia Clarke on writing scripts and optioning a book with her best friend Lola Frears.
