Emilia Clarke Has A Boyfriend – And They’re Already Instagram Official

Sorry, Jon Snow

Daenerys of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, The Unburnt, Queen of the Andals, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, Mother of Dragons… and loved-up thirtysomething. 

That’s right, unfortunately for Jon Snow, Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is officially off the market.

Yesterday, the British actress celebrated her 32nd birthday, taking to Instagram to share a photo of herself with a dragon-topped chocolate cake. 

But it was Emilia’s latest post that had fans really paying attention. Showing two shadows kissing in the sand, the actress wrote, “Well that was a birthday I won’t be forgetting in a while. ❤️”

Emilia coyly didn’t tag anyone in the image with her, but naturally, fans jumped on the case and a few hours later had pinpointed the lucky man. 

It turns out, 35-year-old director and writer Charlie McDowell posted the exact same shot, captioned: “Happy birthday, E.  ❤️”

Clarke liked the photo, and McDowell liked hers. Case closed.

McDowell is no stranger to seeing women in the spotlight: He previously dated actress Rooney Mara from 2010 to 2016.

He’s also the son of two accomplished actors, Mary Steenburgen and Malcolm McDowell and his step-father is Ted Danson of The Good Place.
