Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke puts down her sword and slips on some Dior as she talks to Violet Henderson about being our favourite Dragon Lady.

Because of my hair I rarely, rarely get recognized, but I was in America, in L.A., a couple of weeks ago and I was in a lift in a department store and the doors opened and this woman stood there, looked at me and just went, “Khaleesi!” and then the doors closed! So that was mental and bizarre and rarely happens but when it does it’s normally on that kind of crazy scale.

I think it’s important to have people who aren’t actors around you. You get a warped view if you stay in it for too long.

“You spend the entire time being like, ‘Can you CGI my heinie so it’s a little smaller?’ They’re like, ‘Do you want another dragon? Or do you want a smaller bum? It’s either/or, Emilia.’ Damn it. Go for the dragon.” — Emilia Clarke for the Rolling Stone

Emilia Clarke for The New Yorker (April 2013)

“There’s a Dany in every one of us and to have the opportunity to dress up so archetypically female, with her long, wavy blonde hair, and have that sense of being genuinely badass at the same time — it’s amazing.” (Emilia Clarke for i-D Magazine)
