Emilia Clarke is the newest face of an anti-rape campaign in Russia. The only problem? She never agreed to it.
The Game of Thrones star's photo is being used in political ads in the city ofYekaterinburg in support of United Russia politician Yakov Silin, the U.K.'s Mirrorreports.

Though the picture is undoubtedly of Clarke, she's presented in the ads as a young woman named Anja. "I suddenly noticed that for the last couple of years I'm not afraid to walk at night in Yekaterinburg," the poster reads, according to the Mirror. "I now have confidence that the city is safe, that no-one will attack me or rape me." The campaign organizers say the mix-up was intentional. " We selected a famous and beautiful actress on purpose, to make it clear that this is a fantasy," they told theMirror. "We don't claim that we have her support."
Clarke has yet to comment publicly on the issue.
