Emilia Clarke is Harper Bazaar‘s latest covergirl which comes as no surprise, since the actress continues to take Hollywood by storm.
Clarke is known for her role as the young, but strong queen Daenerys Targaryen in HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones, but the star has taken on another notable role as well, playing Sarah Connor in the upcoming film Terminator Genisys. The actress recently sat down with Harper’s Bazaar to talk about what it’s like playing the Mother of Dragons as well as the mother of John Connor.
Emilia Clarke stars opposite the legendary Arnold Schwarzenegger for the upcoming Terminator film and she enjoyed every second of getting to work with the vet. “It never gets old. He was so much fun. I expected this massive ego to turn up, but his is this charming, sweet, kind man. He got really excited to film the scenes.”
Clarke’s most recognized for her role as Daenerys Targaryen and everyone remembers the monumental scene during Game of Thrones’ first season when she arose from the ashes, nude and reborn as the Mother of Dragons. Well, it seems like one castmember had a hard time staying focused during Emilia’s nude scene. “The crew was a few cliffs over, so it’s me, four or five extras, and Iain Glen [Ser Jorah Mormont]. Iain does this thing where he lifts his head up and his face goes, ‘Ahh naked lady.’ But because they were filming so far away, what he said was ‘Great tits, love.’ I’m like, ‘The camera’s not on you, can you stop commenting on how great you think these breasts are?’”
Fans of the series can be found anywhere and other famous people are no exception. When it comes to meeting famous Game of Thrones fans, Clarke definitely enjoys the experiences. “I was at a Golden Globes after party and Channing f***ing Tatum came up to me, and his stunning missus, Jenna Dewan. And they said, ‘We call each other “moon of my life” and “my sun and stars”’ and all that. And I was like, ‘I cannot contain this. Please, can we all have something sexual together? You’re both beautiful, even just a hug,’”
