Emilia Clarke cast in Prime Video’s “Criminal”


Emilia Clarke has been cast in a leading role in Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming series adaptation of the “Criminal” graphic novels. Clarke joins previously announced cast members Charlie Hunnam, Richard Jenkins, John Hawkes, Adria Arjona, Logan Browning, Kadeem Hardison, Pat Healy, Taylor Sele, Gus Halper, Aliyah Camacho, Michael Mando, Marvin Jones III, Michael Xavier, and Dominic Burgess.

The graphic novels, created by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, feature an interconnected universe of crime stories. Clarke will portray Mallory, a character described as a slick and daring armed robber who is as quick with her gun as she is with her wits. Mallory is part of a heist crew led by Ricky Lawless (Halper), with whom she shares a passionate, Bonnie-and-Clyde-like affair. Living on the edge and hiding secrets, Mallory’s actions will propel her and her crew into dangerous territory.

Clarke is best known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen in HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” for which she received four Emmy Award nominations. Her recent television work includes the Marvel-Disney+ series “Secret Invasion.” Clarke’s filmography includes titles such as “Me Before You,” “Last Christmas,” “The Pod Generation,” “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” and “Terminator Genisys.” In 2022, she made her West End debut in Anya Reiss’ adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s “The Seagull.”
