Personal Quote:

“When I told my dad I wanted to be an actress, he replied that there was only one line I needed to learn: Do you want fries with that?”

Did You Know?

Auditioned for Sharon Carter/Agent 13 in Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), but lost to Emily VanCamp.

 

SUMMARY:

Although Emilia Clarke is basically known only for her role as Daenerys Targaryen on the HBO show “Game of Thrones”, this young woman has the makings to be a huge star. Unfortunately, early ‘buzz’ on the soon-to-be-released “Terminator: Genisys” isn’t great, so we may have to wait a little longer before Clarke becomes a household name.  Trust me though…it’s going to happen!

HIGHLIGHTS:
Best Known For: Game of Thrones (‘Daenerys Targaryen’) and the upcoming Terminator: Genisys (‘Sarah Connor’)

Breakout Role (according to the masses): Game of Thrones
