“You start to see her struggle with the realities.”
Emilia Clarke on her character Dany in Game of Thrones season four

Emilia is featured in the March Spring Fashion issue of WSJ. Magazine. She talks about the dynamic between her and her Game of Thrones costars; how she landed the role; and the trials and tribulations of being a drama student. The photoshoot and article are available online.

These are some of Emilia quotes from the article, be sure to check it on WSJ. Magazine site or in the issue that will hits newsstands Saturday, February 15!

Emilia Clarke Quotes
• Since Clarke’s character is often alone, she has yet to share a scene with many of her costars: “We’re [often] in totally different locations. You’re at an awards show, saying ‘Lovely to meet you. We’re in a show together, apparently. You’re really good!’”

• Her GOT audition went something like this: “I did the robot, followed by the funky chicken. I think it sealed the deal.”

• On her insecurities during season one of GOT: “I spent season one just hoping I was doing it right.”

• Clarke increasingly sees more of Dany in herself: “It’s the growth of a girl into a woman. She’s being thrown into the deep end, to see if she can sink or swim, and she decides to do it her way. It was wonderful to see a character with such humble beginnings, and such low self-esteem, beginning to trust herself. So my feelings within filming it were echoed—in a much more dramatic way, obviously.”

• On her very first audition for a play in London at 10 years old: “I was learning a folk song in school about a donkey, so I decided to sing that. They said, ‘Do you know anything more current?’ I then gave them my best rendition of the Spice Girls, complete with dance moves—that’s where my musical career ended. It made me realize that I wasn’t quite ready. I think my parents were trying to give me a healthy dose of realism early on.”

Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss Joint Quotes
• On Clarke’s sense of humor: “She’s effing funny. Does that mean we’ve written hilarious scenes for her? No. But someone should.”

• On the dynamic acting skills that set Clarke apart: “We needed an actress who could convincingly embody both the timid, voiceless Dany we first meet, and the Mother of Dragons she later becomes. Only Emilia nailed both.”

Emilia for The Observer

June 2013: the internet announces the engagement of Emilia Clarke, 26, actor known for her role in HBO fantasy epic Game of Thrones, to James Franco, film star, director, writer, thinker. Text messages fly in from Clarke’s friends, some of whom she hasn’t spoken to since she was about four years old. “I had my aunt from America calling me up and being like” – Clarke slips into a brassy East Coast accent – “‘Where’s the ring?'”

She lets out a peal of laughter so gleeful you can almost hear the exclamation marks. She had met Franco only twice when the gossip sites, intoxicated by the sight of them visiting an art fair together in New York, announced their utterly nonexistent betrothal. “It’s hilarious,” says Clarke. “He is, of course, beautiful. But I feel there’s only a handful of women who could form an engagement after two meetings, and I’m not one of them.”

This is what happens when you are Hollywood’s latest crush. Clarke’s Game of Thrones role as Khaleesi, the ivory-haired warrior queen, has transformed her, in an eyeblink, from drama-school graduate to red-carpet beauty and potential Mrs Franco. In the two years since landing the part, Clarke has had an Emmy nomination and a lead role on Broadway; she has travelled the world to shoot Game of Thrones (Croatia, Morocco, Iceland); she has dated one of the wealthiest men in Hollywood (Seth MacFarlane). And now she’s in a film with Jude Law, which is as good way as any of saying that life is pretty great.

An “old” interview Emilia did after she discovered her Emmy nomination:

What show would you want to guest-star on?
My very best friend ever, Rose Leslie, who plays Ygritte on [‘Game of Thrones’], was on ‘Downton Abbey.’ My Brit sort of says maybe that one. One of the other shows I would very much love to be a part of is ‘Mad Men’ — walking around that office. Or being a meth head in ‘Breaking Bad’ — that would be wicked. Then I’d really start seeing dragons.

What would you be doing if you weren’t acting?
Something in music. Something creative. I do love singing. I wouldn’t say I’m any good, but I definitely love it, especially jazz singing.

If you could duet with Neil Patrick Harris during the show, what would you sing?

“The Way You Look Tonight.”

Two episodes of “Futurama” left, and producers are continuing to do what they do best: make nerds happy.

Emilia Clarke, aka Daenerys Targaryen from HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” guest stars on the August 28 episode as Dr. Zoidberg’s ideal mate: a gorgeous woman born with no sense of smell. Good thing, too, because Zoidberg admits he’s “smellier than a whorehouse’s outhouse.”

Here, we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek at the couple’s first date, complete with more gratuitous references to raccoon violence than should be allowed on basic cable:

[GOT TO THE SITE FOR THE VIDEO]
One of “Futurama’s” strengths has always been its sincere emotion cutting through and heightening the jokes that come flying out at 186,000 miles per second. There have already been several teary-eyed moments this season, and more are promised — could this be the most despised Planet Express employee’s last chance for love? Or will our final memory of the educated crustacean be him getting his heart broken by the Mother of Dragons?

More important still: When will the cast of “Futurama” cross over into “Game of Thrones”? Leela and Brienne in a remake of “Thelma and Louise”? Bender and Tyrion in a remake of anything?!

Only time (or, more likely, wildy imaginative fan fiction) will tell for sure.

Actress Emilia Clarke is best known for her role on HBO’s Game of Thrones as Daenerys Targaryen, Queen of the Andals and the Rhoynar and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Princess of Dragonstone, Breaker of Chains, Mhysa, and Mother of Dragons. Now the actress can add Emmy nominee to her titles. EW chatted with the London-born actress on the phone this morning about the big news.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Congratulations on the nomination! How did you find out this morning?
Emilia Clarke:
It’s genuinely the weirdest thing. 6 a.m. rolls around, and my alarm in the hotel went off, and I definitely didn’t set it — definitely, definitely. So I went into a frenzy, throwing everything I could at all of the electrical appliances in the room trying to make whatever noise was going on stop. Then I saw my phone and I was like, Ah! Oh my goodness, hopefully the show got nominated because I had a sleepless night praying Dan and David would get nominated for writing. Because I just think they deserve it so much. So it took a couple of phone calls for me to actually hear from my publicist that I myself was also nominated. [Laughs] And then I cried. [Laughs] It’s all quite too much to handle.

How are you feeling now?
For me, the nomination is literally the end of the line. It’s amazing. I’m so, so, so happy. I owe absolutely everything to HBO. I’m just happy that the show itself got recognized. It’s just wonderful.

The show, this season especially, features dramatic changes for its characters. Talk about Daenerys’ arc and where she is by the end of season 3.
Throughout the series, she literally started as a mute, terrified princess with a sort of vague idea that she should be on the throne. Three seasons in, and she is the mother of three fast-growing dragons and the queen of an army of over 10,000. I think it shows the power of what women can do. [Laughs] And hopefully by the end of the series, she’ll be stuck atop the Iron Throne. I’m still holding out for that.

What scene this season was most challenging or fun to film? Daenerys has some pretty badass moments.
Episode four, the getting of the army, the taking of the Unsullied army, was just as much fun to film as it was to watch. It took two days to film, and we had so many extras there. To turn around and shout in Valyrian was quite an empowering experience. Even after take 22, I was like, Yup. Still cool. I’m still shouting.

In a statement following the interview, Clarke added, “Yer chomoe anhaan. Jin ha Khalaan, shekh ma shieraki anni.” For those not fluent in Dothraki, it translates to: “You do honor to me. This is for the Khal — my sun and stars.”
