Her role as the Mother of Dragons has made her famous, but Emilia Clarke sounds relieved that she hasn’t really had to deal with the pitfalls of fame since the debut of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” (Sundays at 9 p.m. ET).

“I’m really oblivious to it, because I look so different,” said Clarke, whose natural brunette hair color makes her look quite dissimilar from her character, the white-haired, royal exile Daenerys Targaryen. Still, people do occasionally recognize her: A woman in a department store in Los Angeles was too stunned to get on the elevator when she saw that Clarke was in it. “Khaleesi?” the fan asked.

“And then the doors closed, and the lift kept going up,” Clarke said with a laugh. “Stuff like that happens, and there’s also, ‘You kind of look like that girl from “Game of Thrones.”‘”

Given that she prefers a low-key lifestyle, it’s perhaps good that the film role she just finished also has the actress wearing things that make it unlikely that fans will recognize her. In “Spike Island,” Clarke plays one of a group of early ’90s Stone Roses fans, and wears baggy overalls and that era’s puffy, fluffy hair.

She’s a huge fan of the band, but as she noted, “The ’90s were really just bad for fashion and hair.” It is known, Khaleesi.

That movie, which doesn’t have a release date yet, just wrapped a couple of weeks ago, and at the end of 2011, Clarke finished filming her “Game of Thrones” scenes, which were mostly shot in Croatia. Once again, she typically worked far away from the rest of the cast — this season, Dany is across the Narrow Sea, trying to keep her Khalasar (her Dothraki tribe) alive and ultimately trying to get back to Westeros, the land that the Targaryens used to rule. In last week’s episode of “Game of Thrones,” Dany and her followers finally found refuge in the mysterious city of Qarth, which is far from the capitol of the Seven Kingdoms.

Back in the real world, the London-based actress sees the rest of the cast whenever she can. “All of the boys, I see regularly because we’re all in London together, so that’s really nice,” she said. “A special bond was made with the whole of the cast from the beginning, when we were all a bit more together, and I don’t think that’s really going to go away.”

But as we discussed in our conversation, being away from home and all her friends and family is a situation her character Dany is quite familiar with — though of course the khaleesi’s situation is more extreme. She’s not only trying to keep her people safe and retake the Iron Throne, she’s also mourning the deaths of her husband, Khal Drogo, and her baby, and trying to nurture the three young dragons that hatched at the end of Season 1.

Clarke and I began by talking about the parallels between the actress herself and the young exile.

Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke, who plays the character Daenerys Targaryen in the hit HBO fantasy television series, has revealed how she won her role on the show. Emilia admitted that it was actually fairly simply and all she really did was audition.

Clarke explained, “My goodness, how I became involved with the show… auditioned!? That’s pretty much it. Yeah my agent called with the audition, I went in and by the time I’d got the second audition I’d read the book and was an official fan and a geek! I was just crazy in love with it.”

She added, “So happily by the time I got to L.A. for the screen tests they said yes. It really wasn’t very long it was probably over about a month I think. Yeah it was two auditions in London and the screen test in L.A. and that was it.”

Emilia Clarke also admitted that, if she was not working as one of the stars of Game of Thrones, she would probably still be working one of her three jobs, either in a bar, at a call centre or working as a waitress. However, she would still be pursuing her dream of becoming an actress.

Game of Thrones continues on HBO every Sunday before airing in the UK on Sky Atlantic on Mondays.

Beyond the complex plot, detailed costuming and political intrigue, GQ owns up to why HBO’s Game Of Thrones really is a must-see: Emilia Clarke

Pop quiz, hotshot: what kind of poison kills Jon Arryn, the hand of the king?

GQ was sitting with Emilia Clarke – the breakout star of HBO’s award-winning fantasy series Game Of Thrones – and had decided, when faced with the 25-year-old Londoner who ended the first series as a dragon-toting warrior badass, the show’s de facto lead and in the affections of all who’d seen it, to nerd-quiz her on the programme.

“The milk of the poppy. No, wait, not that…” said Emilia, who had just been telling GQ about her expertise in Game Of Thrones’ fictional language Dothraki (“I’m at the pidgin stage. I could get by on holiday”) and knowledge of its forest of family trees. “Oh! Oh! The Eye of Lys. No, the Tears of Lys!”

…is correct.

“Get in!” she screamed, arms aloft. It’s easy to see why many people are obsessed with Emilia, a natural brunette who appears platinum blonde for her role as Daenerys Targaryen. Though the fact she often appears naked probably doesn’t hurt.

Probably best.

Her character’s newly hatched dragons are set to bring a fantasy element to a show that may be set in a mythical land, but is driven by politics (it’s been dubbed “The Sopranos meets Middle-earth”).

“You could take the fantasy out and it would still stand up as an outstanding piece of drama,” she said, while noting that the show can’t hope to continue following the increasingly complex source material – George RR Martin’s sprawling six-book-and-counting series. “It’s becoming more ‘based on’,” she said. This may displease hard-core fans but, noted Emilia, HBO doesn’t want to be left waiting.

“Exactly. Don’t let us catch up with you George! Or, you know, we could just skip to me sitting on the throne. I win!”

Well, it would make for an easier quiz…
