“Game of Thrones” might have just completed its third season, but leading lady Emilia Clarke isn’t taking her time off to rest. Instead, the Brit is busy recording a voice for the final episodes of “Futurama.”
Clarke’s involvement with “Futurama” was first announced in early May, and a photo posted to “Futurama’s” Facebook page proves that she kept her word. This will be Clarke’s first time recording a voice for a cartoon television series.
According to “Futurama” executive producer David X. Cohen, Clarke’s character on the show is a flower stand owner who has no sense of smell. “She falls in love with Dr. Zoidberg — the smelliest character on Earth in the future — but she can’t smell him, so it’s a match made in heaven,” Cohen teased recently to Entertainment Weekly. “However, being a doctor, he has the opportunity to perform a nose transplant and give her a sense of smell, which would destroy their romance, so it’s a big dilemma.”
“Futurama’s” final episodes will begin airing on June 19 at 10 p.m. The series will come to an end on Sept. 4. “Game of Thrones” returns to HBO in Season 4 in Spring 2014.
