Emilia Clarke has been tapped to take on the role of Irish author and Oscar Wilde’s wife Constance Lloyd in ‘An Ideal Wife.’

Plot details are currently being kept locked up but it is said that it will shed light on Lloyd, who was an author and feminist activist who took part in the dress reform movement, which campaigned to allow women to dress in comfortable clothing rather than the stifling Victorian dresses of the era. Lloyd married Wilde in 1884 and the couple had two sons. However, after Wilde received a two-year prison term for homosexuality, which was still illegal at the time (it would only be decriminalized in England and Wales in 1967), Lloyd moved to Switzerland with their children and distanced them from the writer.
