Emilia Clarke (born 26.10.86) is a British Emmy Award-nominated actress best known for her work on the HBO series 'Game of Thrones'.
Net Worth: According to Celebrity Net Worth, Emilia Clarke has a net worth of 3 million USD.
Childhood: Emilia Clarke was born in London to a businesswoman and a theatre sound engineer. Clarke grew up in Berkshire with her younger brother, where she developed a love of acting at the age of three, when she saw the play 'Show Boat' which her father was working on at the time. Clarke studied at Rye St Antony School and St Edward's School in Oxford, before moving on to study at Drama Centre London, and graduating in 2009.
Career: While studying in London, Emilia Clarke landed a series of small film, television and stage roles, and a television commercial for the Samaritans charity. In 2009, she appeared in an episode of 'Doctors', before appearing in the SyFy television film 'Triassic Attack'. In that same year, she was cast in the role of Daenerys Targaryen in 'Game of Thrones' - the HBO television adaptation of George R. R. Martin's 'A Song of Ice and Fire' series of novels - after actress Tamzin Merchant left the project for undisclosed reasons.
Following the 2011 airing of 'Game of Thrones', the series became one of the most successful series of all time. In 2013, Clarke was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her work on 'Game of Thrones' and the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards. In April of the same year, Clark made her debut Broadway appearance in a production of 'Breakfast at Tiffany's', and in December she was cast as Sarah Connor in 'Terminator Genisys' with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The actor, who plays Jon Snow in the hit show, thinks the final series will 'break boundaries'

The eighth and final season of 'Game of Thrones' is set to premiere at some point in 2019.
Although the eighth and final season of ‘Game of Thrones’ is still the best part of year away, the fantasy drama’s long-term fans are still gradually preparing to say goodbye.
That sense won’t have been improved by Emilia Clarke, one of the show’s popular stars as Mother of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen, who has revealed that she’s already finished shooting her scenes for good. She spoke to Vanity Fair this week about what it felt like to put her iconic character, whom she’s portrayed for most of a decade, to rest.
“It f***ed me up,” the English star teased about Daenerys’ end. “Knowing that is going to be a lasting flavour in someone’s mouth of what Daenerys is… I’m doing all this weird shit. You’ll know what I mean when you see it.”

The actress is gearing up for her appearance in what looks to be one of this year's biggest movies.
Emilia Clarke is a household name across the globe thanks to her role as Daenerys Targaryen in the critically-acclaimed fantasy HBO series 'Game of Thrones'. Currently in the midst of filming the eighth and final season of that show, Clarke is also preparing to see her face back up on the big screen, after shooting the upcoming standalone 'Star Wars' film 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'.
Emilia Clarke is almost ready to let the world meet Qi'ra
There, she takes on the role of Qi'ra; a woman who has played a huge part in helping to build Han Solo's earlier life, but somebody whom the hero refused to speak about in the episodic 'Star Wars' series of films. There's been a lot of secrecy surrounding the character and exactly what fans should expect from her, but Clarke has been willing to open up a little bit in a recent interview.

The actress will bring Daenerys Targaryen's story to a close in 'Game of Thrones' season 8.
As one of the biggest breakout stars from 'Game of Thrones', Emilia Clarke is a woman who has helped pave the way for feminism and equality for women through her role in the HBO series as Daenerys Targaryen. Though we wouldn't say all of her actions have been the best examples of how women can make a name for themselves, she has provided excellent lessons on being a leader in a world that's dominated by men.
Emilia Clarke says she's learned a lot from Daenerys Targaryen
Over seven seasons to-date, Daenerys has worked her way from the dust of the Targaryen family right into the middle of an impending war for control of the Seven Kingdoms, bringing three dragons (one now sadly deceased, before being brought back by the Night King for his own gain) into the fray and proving that she has exactly what it takes to make her House stand tall once more.

The actress has been propelled into the spotlight since taking up on her role in Game of Thrones
Epic TV series Games of Thrones has thrown its actors into an intense spotlight following the huge popularity of the show but now one of its stars has revealed how "overwhelming" the fan attention has become. Emilia Clarke - who plays the Dragon Queen with one of the longest character titles, Daenerys Targaryen - has said the sheer volume of fans often leaves her feeling "outnumbered" and airports are a "constant source of fear".
Emilia Clarke has become a household name since Game of Thrones
In an interview with the Telegraph, the 31-year-old actress said: "When you’re in a really public place and someone asks you for a picture, then suddenly you get people who don’t know who you are, or really care, come up and join in.

The actress thinks everybody should worry about something else.
Following an incredible run of seven dramatic, action-packed episodes in its penultimate season, 'Game of Thrones' has once again this year worked its way into the hearts of everybody watching. With just six episodes of the entire series to go before it concludes for good, storylines are going to have to be tied up, with one of the biggest being that of Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) discovering that they're related (aunt and nephew), right after they slept together for the first time.
Emilia Clarke has played Daenerys Targaryen for seven seasons to-date
Whilst the scene of their first sexual encounter was one many had looked forward to for some time, seeing the pair make love whilst narration proved they were actually related was one of the strangest moments 'Game of Thrones' has ever had. Still, that's not the problem a vocal minority have with the series.
The characters could be locking lips before we know it...
It looks like the sexual tension we all felt between Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen in the most recent episode of 'Game of Thrones' wasn't something we were willing to happen rather than it actually being there, as one of the show's directors has spoken out about the romance that could blossom between the two.
We've not yet seen Jon bend the knee to Daenerys
Whilst everybody at home knows the pair are related by blood, after it was revealed in season 6 that Jon Snow is actually from a Targaryen AND Stark background, the fact Daenerys is Jon's aunt doesn't seem to be slowing down the brewing relationship. In fact, this is a world where incest is frowned upon, but still seems to boil under the surface for many involved.
The stars found it strange finally being on set with one another.
HBO may be going through quite the disastrous week, with leaks on a variety of different shows including hit fantasy series 'Game Of Thrones', but that hasn't stopped fans from getting super excited about the amazing meeting that took place in last week's episode between Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke). Whilst the relationship between the pair didn't get off to the best start, the cold freeze between them soon began to thaw, as Daenerys agreed to let Jon and his men mine the dragonglass that lay in the stocks at Dragonstone.
Daenerys Targaryen is making her bid for the Seven Kingdoms
The meeting between the two was something that fans have been waiting for for quite some time now, especially so after last year's revelation that Jon does indeed have Targaryen blood. As the nephew to Daenerys, but with neither aware of their family connection, there's now rumours that romance could blossom between the two.
Clarke spoke to Elle magazine for its August edition ahead of the return of 'Game of Thrones' for its seventh season.
The 30 year old British star, who has played Daenerys Targaryen since the HBO series began in 2011, has been working hard promoting the seventh series ahead of its return this weekend. In a new interview for the US August edition of Elle magazine, she opened up about what it is like to bare all on screen, and reveals that she gets a lot of unfair criticism for it.
Specifically referring to her up-close-and-personal encounter with Daario Naharis (played by Michael Huisman) in season four, she said: “It’s brilliant. I actually went up to [showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] and thanked them. I was like, ‘That’s a scene I’ve been waiting for!’ Because I get a lot of c**p for having done nude scenes and sex scenes.”
