Emilia Clarke was cast as Jean Kerr, the wife of famed US Senator Joseph McCarthy in the upcoming biopic film, McCarthy. The film follows the story of the former Marine who was the US Senator, McCarthy, during his rise to prominence. McCarthy became famous for his leadership in the so-called “red fear” in the 1950s and led dozens of inquisitions of celebrities and stars accused of leaking secrets to the USSR during the Cold War. “McCarthyism,” as it became known, was a polarizing time in U.S. history; with everyone from Charlie Chaplin to Marilyn Monroe forced themselves to defend themselves against McCarthy’s smear tactics. The Mass Hexhunt even inspired author Arthur Clarke to pen the allegorical novel, The cross.
