Emilia Clarke has a wicked sense of humor.

The Game of Thrones star got into a pranks war with Sam Claflin while they were shooting Me Before You.

"I put fish in his socks, but that was just one of them, the fish that we had for lunch," Clarke told me at the Me Before You premiere. "I had limited resources. He had just pranked me and I was like, 'I've got 20 minutes until the end of the day so I have to get this done.'"

Other pranks reportedly included placing a fart machine in Claflin's wheelchair and Claflin scared the heck out of Clarke by jumping out of a closet in her trailer after hiding in there for about 20 minutes.

Claflin also recalled some unintended fun that he had with Clarke during a break from filming. They were walking through a field outside of London when they suddenly found themselves were being chased by a herd of cows. "We ran and I carried Emilia on my back," he laughed.

In the film, Clarke plays a young woman who is hired to be a caretaker of a quadriplegic played by Claflin. (Spoiler alert—they fall in love!)

The film has left many audience members in tears (so much so that the movie has a partnership with Kleenex).

"I watched an edit of it and found myself crying," Clarke said.

She also complained that she thinks she has an "ugly cry face."

"I've got this little chin thing," Clarke said. "Who actually quivers their lower lip? Apparently, I do."

Me Before You opens on June 3.
