LOS ANGELES, Feb. 3 (UPI) -- Me Before You released a first trailer starring Emilia Clarke on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old English actress plays Louisa, a caregiver who finds romance with her disabled client, William (Sam Claflin). William, who was rendered quadriplegic in an accident, teaches Louisa to live her life to the fullest while planning to end his own life.

Me Before You is based on the Jojo Moyes novel of the same name, and co-stars Jenna Coleman as Louisa's sister Katrina and Charles Dance as William's father Steven. The movie is directed by Thea Sharrock and opens in theaters June 3.

"In a sense, it's been something very, very different and challenging," Claflin told Red Carpet News last year. "It's a new world for me... my eyes are opening hugely as I kind of continue down that road. But I'm very, very excited."

"A script that makes me cry is a good script," he said. "The story, the sort of broken nature of this human being, is something that really appealed to me, purely because it's a guy that has everything and then through one accident, loses everything. That to me is an interesting prospect [and] hugely heartbreaking."

"It's how this female carer inspires him to change that really, really struck a chord with me," he added. "It's an incredible journey for both characters and for the surrounding characters. It's a beautiful story."

Clarke is best known for playing Daenerys Targaryen, aka Khaleesi, on Game of Thrones, and is slated for Voice from the Stone with Marton Csokas. Claflin played Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games movies and will star in The Huntsman: Winter's War with Chris Hemsworth.
