It's been at least two years since we heard that JoJo Moyes Me Before You was headed to the screen. I gave you my take on the book (which I LOVED) back in July of 2013 and last October we heard they'd firmed up the casting of Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin (Hunger Games) as Louisa and Will. Now, we're finally getting our first look from the set as the film goes into production in Pembroke, Wales and Emilia Clarke goes from the sublime—as Daenarys in Game of Thrones— to the ridiculous— as Louisa in Me Before You. The character of Louisa, young and a bit silly at the start of the book, is clearly miles away from the strong and fierce Daenerys that Emilia Clarke plays on Thrones. I love how the costume designer has utterly transformed Clarke from her fierce GoT character into the sheltered, somewhat silly young woman hired to look after Will Traynor, the recently paralyzed man of the world.
