Matt Smith sparks romance rumours with Emilia Clarke as they’re pictured after dinner date

MATT Smith and Emilia Clarke have sparked romance rumours after they were pictured looking close on a night out in London.

The famous pair were pictured smiling side by side as they left swanky Soho restaurant Bob Bob Ricard.

Game Of Thrones actress Emilia, 33, looked chic in flared white trousers and a black jacket, while The Crown star Matt, 37, was cool in a grey jacket, white T-shirt and black trousers.

Clearly comfortable in each other’s company, the duo have known each other for years and both starred in 2015 action blockbuster Terminator: Genisys.

But they are perhaps most famously known for playing royalty – albeit in from different worlds.

Matt portrayed Prince Philip in Netflix’s The Crown while Emilia starred in fantasy epic Game Of Thrones as exiled princess-turned-queen Daenerys Targaryen.

The handsome actor was previously linked to his Crown co-star Claire Foy last December after splitting from girlfriend of five years Lily James.

Matt and Claire were pictured giggling and being playful on a boozy session in Soho last December, setting tongues wagging.

Despite their split, Matt and Lily remained on good terms and even isolated together during lockdown.

A source told The Sun: “Matt and Lily’s break-up was mostly because their hectic schedules meant they could barely see each other.

“They kept the house together when they split because they were both barely around. But when lockdown began, they ended up isolating together.

Meanwhile Emilia previously dated actor Charlie McDowell – son of Clockwork Orange star Malcolm McDowell.

In an interview with The Sunday Times in March, Emilia admitted relationships with other actors weren’t easy.

She said: “I am single right now. Dating in this industry is interesting.

“I have a lot of funny anecdotes, a lot of stuff I can say at a fun dinner. I was [dating actors], but I’m not now.

“I mean, I wouldn’t say I’ve completely sworn off them, but I do think actor relationships that are successful are few and far between – and you have to have a ton of trust.”

She was was most recently linked to assistant director Tom Turner.
