Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is Esquire‘s Sexiest Woman Alive.
The magazine announced today that the 28-year-old actress, who plays fan-favorite Daenerys Targaryan in the fantasy series, is their pick for the title this year, due in part to her “gorgeous balance.”
In the cover story interview, the star is summed up as “half pal, half dominatrix. Half kid sister, half sexy queen. The movie star who plays, in her real life, an anonymous, funny beauty. This is the gorgeous balance of Emilia Clarke.”
“She manages to bring together a number of opposites, to make them natural: sweetness and toughness, emotionalism with a kind of cold-blooded determination. Something in these contrasts explains her sex appeal, too. She can play queen and kid sister, dominatrix and pal,” expresses the magazine.
The actress’ 2015 is wrapping up on a good note. She was also named Woman of the Year by GQ last month
