Emilia Clarke has a certain kind of nubile beauty that’s irresistible to casting directors. She’s one of those child-women who’s all bee-stung lips, broad brow and soft, round visage, a facade of über-innocence that’s always hiding anything but. On an actress like Mila Kunis, a baby face is the alluring mask of a bad girl. But in the case of Game of Thrones star Clarke, it’s the portal to a type of young female character you’ve rarely seen, one whose womanly side isn’t largely expressed by her sexuality but by a solid core of inner strength and authority.

Of course, there’s a reason you haven’t seen many characters like that: Not many young women—or young men, for that matter—are masters-of-the-universe material. Not yet, anyway. So the executive producers of HBO’s highly rated fan favorite fantasy-epic series launched an extensive search for Daenerys Targaryen, one of the would-be monarchs of Game of Thrones’ dungeons-and-dragons world.

HBO signed a more well-known actress to the pilot, and then, as Hollywood tales often go, the part of the silver-haired goddess was recast to Clarke, now 24, after more than 100 had auditioned. “It’s just so rare that someone so young is called upon to be so commanding and have so much gravitas,” says D.B. Weiss, who cocreated Thrones with David Benioff based on George R.R. Martin’s wildly popular series of novels, A Song of Fire and Ice.

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…
