“Futurama” may have just been cancelled for the second time in its humble run, but there are still a handful of episodes left to run on Comedy Central — and one of them will include a very exciting guest voice.
“Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke will be heard in the second-to-last episode of the series, voicing a flower stand owner who was born who 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,” executive producer David X. Cohen tells EW. “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” is set to begin airing its final episodes on Wednesday, June 19 at 10 p.m. The show will come to an end on September 4.
Thursday (May 2) was a busy day for Clarke’s career. On top her this guest spot, it was reported that she will star in James Franco‘s upcoming directorial effort “The Gardens of Last Days.” In the film, based on the 2008 Andre Dubus III novel, Clarke will play “a stripper who brings her 3-year-old daughter to work” in one of three interwoven stories.
